    It doesn't.
    In-game vehicles are a shmorgisboard of random subtle real-world styling cues and random things gabe yoinked into the mix, and thus can't really be compared to something irl and be 100% accurate.

    Yeesh I came off as rude (sorry), it's just that IGCD has a bad record of identifying cars anyways.

    You didn't come off as rude, it was actually informative on my part.

    It’s pretty hilarious. The Roamer is listed as an Explorer even though they’re in different size classes, and the same goes for the I-Series which they’re calling a 7 Series. The Pigeon is also listed as a Reliant Rialto and most of the users there seemed to believe the new Pessima was an Avalon (literally what?).

    IGCD is in no way a reliable source for this kind of discussion, which doesn’t even need to exist in the first place.

    IGCD isn't necessary to me. Most games have their own fake cars and if they have actual licensed ones, they tell you/make it obvious what they are. The site's pretty much useless in modern games. Plus half of the time their guesses of what the car is based on are wrong to the point where you might even feel offended by how stupid they sound, specifically with games like GTA. That's why people should only turn to official sources to get info like that because no one knows the game like the devs.

    Anyway rant aside, I believe the main creator of the SBR4 said its a mix of a Porsche interpreted by the Japanese with hints of GTR and R8. Much like the Sunburst, you can't just pin a car that shares one or two features to it, unlike the Pessima or Covet, which are pretty obvious as to what they're based on since they aren't a mesh of multiple IRL cars.

    The only such comment I know of is " It's gonna be brutally fast and grippy (somewhat like a GT-R)." Other than that it's very much an attempt to not be like a particular real car. That was pretty much the point of it.

    They also said the K series was a BMW Z4. If you squint really hard(I mean where your eyes hurt) then I guess it sort of looks like a Z4, but performance wise the K series is definitely more powerful and quicker.

    So, that IGCD link is probably the least helpful thing for your "SbR4 LoOk LiKe PoRsChE." Not to mention they think the Burnside looks like a De Soto Firedome

    I agree with you on how IGCDB thinks the Special is based off of the Firedome...and sure, there are some similarities, but the concept is still the same. Take a bunch of cars and mash them together while changing things here and there and that's pretty much it.

    It's literally based on:
    Oh would you look at that, early 50s boxy sedan!

    While some cars are similar to cars in real life, the SBR4 is a totally new concept, quite literally. There is nothing that looks like it. You can search all you want but you are not going to find anything like it.

    SBR4 Looks like a SBR4. I see copyright issues. does Hirochi Know about that :p

    Jokes aside, It takes parts of lots of sport cars,. Its a hint of this and a hint of that,.
    I see some real car ( brand name ) styles in it,

    But its a car made for the game, And i love it,
