Agreed on all points, except the Volvo knock. Volvo and Polestar are (is?) the only companies consistently making attractive vehicles right now. If Polestar makes a car styled like the Polestar 1 but shrunk down to the size of a BRZ and rear wheel drive I'd be all over it; hybrid or electric.
Frankly most of the cars in your list don't interest me, really. I'd happily take a Volvo V60 Polestar over anything from Porsche or Ferrari. Except, maybe, the F355.
That all being said, what they've done to that poor Polestar for NFS brings a tear to my eye. Poor girl. Wasn't long for this world. I'd much rather she appears in Assetto Corsa, as stock. Or a proper GT variant.
I personally like the Polestar. If I had the dough to buy a car like that, the only other car in that price range that would make me hesitate, would be an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifglio.
Some thoughts on Heat from MW 2005 World Record holder Kuru:
He was at Gamescom and could play it.
@Paul Jeffrey Could you pls open a separat forum section for NFS Heat ?
To each their own good sir. The polestar stock is a looker for sure. But NFS for me was about the poster cars, I mean for me... F50 vs polestar anything... V12 vs anything, just no contest. Growing up with a brand and loving it I get it, I'm like that with BMW. But this is about the unicorns, **** that midnight racing nonsense.
PS not salty or hating just NFS stopped for me after PU, ethos was lost. I do however appreciate all car enthusiasm cause it's all a beautiful thing. Even if sometimes I get a good laugh out of it.
Nah, this is a much more recent phenomenon; the auto industry is in the crapper and Volvo/Polestar is the only entity consistently making attractive cars. I find that very sad, tbh. Looking at the cars currently in production, there's only one on the entire planet I actually want and that's the BRZ; which I do own. Only reason the Polestar 1 isn't on my want list is because it's too big. I used to love the high performance stuff as a kid, but now it doesn't interest me; it's all gotten too fast. Driving is only fun when you're near the limits of the vehicle. There's nothing fun about driving a Ferrari at 3/10ths of its capabilities because you're only a mere mortal and don't have the skill to push it further than that. When you know the car's got more to give but you can't tap into it, it's not fun anymore. My bone stock BRZ is a hell of a lot more fun to drive than my buddy's tuned-to-hell-and-back Mustang, and that's why.
Agreed. I can't stand anything about the scene; the attitude, the stupid bodykits and paintjobs, the music, the "flexing" (God I hate that term so, so much), the fact it's almost entirely about style, the almost complete lack of any real substance. It's all so incredibly shallow to me. Not to mention I'll never understand the desire to buy a cheap car and spend a hundred grand to make it a worse car.
I say this as an early-30s designer, too. Apparently this is the scene I supposed to like, and I can't stand it.
