Man, I can't wait for it to be released!
IIRC, the Wendover is the car that came in last place for the poll, meaning this is the last KNOWN car to be added to the game. Wonder what comes after this.
Nice, I was surprised at how few vehicles were actually in the game as youtubers always had loads nore
Goes to show how active the mod community is, doesn't it? :)
Probably a mixture of automation and workshop mods
Could those have been automation imports tho? I mean I personally don’t watch people really that make BeamNG content so I could be wrong. But from my experience my library is littered with my automation creations
Where was the poll? Maybe they’ll make a new poll with more cars!
It's a very old poll from a thread, like from almost 10 years ago! If you search sth like "BeamNG vehicle poll" I think you can still find it.
If they made a new poll, I'd be too hyped to wait. Gotta have that element of surprise, you know? 😅
I know what you mean yeah. I really want some proper old cars like from the 1930s. And I want some bigger cars/minivans like an old Toyota Previa and an old London cab.
Agreed. It'd also be neat if they added a Japanese cab-over van or a few more modern sports cars. I absolutely love 80s and 90s cars, but a little variety would certainly be beneficial ;)
I'd also love to see some sort of limo and hearse like an old Daimler limo or hearse. I know it sounds weird but in the UK Banger racing with them is common so they would be fun to mess around with lmao
Would be neat to see a H-series people mover configuration maybe
I just want more muscle cars!
Yeah, I want some more modern sports cars, and I would like a 80s boat like a Cadillac Seville (I think that is spelled right). But I would also like some 30s oldie cars that could have a hot rod version. And I want more minivans in the game because right now all we have is the Kashira mod which is good but we need one in the base game
link here if anyone wants it
That’s crazy how far this game has come
>came in last place for the poll
I'm guessing it's gonna be an FWD, V6, 4-speed auto, grandma car.
Don't forget the Transverse engine
isn’t that like all the cars in the game lol
yeah, i was thinking of a kind of a LeGran competitor
LeGran is a mid sized volume car (think FF A-Body) and Wendover is a Soliad (Bruckell luxury marque) full sized personal luxury coupe (think E/H body and their derivatives)
Completely different size class and market segment, and produced by the same company
Oh, I didn’t know that, but I think the Wendover resembles a 1990 Buick Regal
It will share parts with the LeGran, so I doubt it could be a competitor
Im hoping its at least rear wheel drive, otherwise itd essentially be a LeGran with a different, slightly larger body. If it is FWD i think ill play with it on day one and then wait for the inevitable RWD mod to come.
I wish every car had an optional rwd conversion, like the 96 pessima and covet.
And drives like a boat.
GTA III confirmed haha
dude with how close this thing looks to a 10th gen thunderbird my guess is its going to be rwd.
Its a buick. Looks like their mid 90s line of cars.
Yeah I‘m so excited. /s
I just hope there's a nascar config
I think there might be
It looks like a earlier version of the Legran
The coloring/aesthetics makes me think the Wendover will actually have some variant of an in-dash touch screen like the Buick Riviera, Buick Reatta, and Oldsmobile Toronado Troféo had in the late 80s and early 90s. The Troféo (I actually have a real one equipped with the screen personally) makes me think the Wendover might have hideaway headlights also.
[For those who have no idea what I’m talking about](https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.businessinsider.com/gms-oldsmobile-toronado-trofeo-infotainment-system-2017-1%3Famp)
That would actually be awesome, they should add another car more like the reatta and trofeo, those would be so fun to drive.
I have to say that American cars are so cool. Here in the EU in the 80s we had boring cars with a few exceptions.
We have our own good and bad cars. The Riviera/Reatta/Trofeo very much lack performance, though. They all had the same 3.8 liter transverse V6 that only produced 165 horsepower, and all had 4 speed automatics. We also have never been able to make a decent subcompact car, really.
considering the vivace has a html display that could essentially work the same as this, i don't see why they wouldn't.
ITS THE 80S
Do a lot of coke and vote for Ronald Reagan!
...and Loc is down with the ladies...
All of this is cool and all but when are we going to get an early 2000s fwd 1.6l i4 fuel injected petrol wagon with 60hp that is entirely made out of plastic so I can live out my fantasies of what it's like to be a miserable middle aged divorced man with no kids and a debilitating sense of unacomplishment on one final drive to wherever the waters will eventually carry him?
you good bro?
wha's wrong with a large automobile from the 1980s with which you can take your beautiful wife to your beautiful house, and let the days go by as the water flows underground?
driving a large automobile is a once in a lifetime experience.
Unlike the dream of driving a small european plasticbox wagon carrying a massive load of dissatisfaction with ones existence.
You can make that in Automation, if you like.
That kinda looks like a coupe of the grand marshall
I feel that this car is faaar too similar to the Legran. And the Legran is now forgotten by everybody, so it's going to be the same fate for this one, like the Barstow too similar to the Moonhawk.
I don't think we need a "boring" car from the 80/90s again. We need a Dodge Charger, a 2020 Roamer, an european Van, european Truck, a modern sedan, a car from the 30s,... Not this.
It's my point of view at least.
90 Japanese Sedans. 90 Japanese Sedans. 90 Japanese Sedans.
Yes but at least set an option to configure it as a left handed car.
Yes that would make sense.
The Wendover is Fullsize while the Le Gran is midsize.
The Le Gran is similar to the GM A body cars of the 1980's while the Wendover is similar to the H and C Body cars of the same time period.
So yeah different enough.
It's different when you go into detail, but in itself they are pretty similar cars coming from the 80s.
This is the kind of vehicles you add when your game covers all types of vehicles, not when whole types are missing.
Only enthusiasts will see real differences between the two. While everyone will be able to see the differences between the current Roamer and a Roamer of 2020, between the Grand Marshal and a modern sedan,...
It is not different enough to be useful. It's just going to become a car that nobody cares about.
They could add models with transverse V8's. we don't have any FWD personal luxury coupes in this game yet.
I...I want Japanese Chaser like sedans.
hope its rwd
It’s going to be fwd I believe
was hoping for career mode but this looks great!
This car has been planned for years so I guess they will get thus out of the way then move on to the career mode
ah ok that makes sense
That wording suggests career mode is something that they will start to work on and finish quickly
Career mode has been WIP for years now. It is no small project.
Hmm this gave me an idea. What if this is the last car before Career comes out?
It might be. They removed the list of cars to be added on the wiki so that might say something.
Kudos to the developers, but its just kinda meh
It’s going to be great. What would you consider not ‘meh’
The problem is that we already have the Bruckell Legran for the "forgettable car of the 80/90's" slot, nowadays everybody has forgotten the Legran and not many people use it anymore.
Was it really worth wasting time to take care of that ? I'm not sure.
There are plenty of other vehicles that would be more interesting and useful to do. A Dodge Charger, a car from the 30s, a modern 4x4, a modern sedan, a European van, a European truck,...
I don't use the Legran much due to the crappy interior quality. but the V6 models are pretty good value for money.
It's not because there's good engines that you're using it more, so it's still kind useless.
Grandma car now featuring TWO doors
have you seen it? no
Well, it's still a boring car from the 80/90s...
Love that late 80s Oldsmobile/Buick design, it reminded me of the Delta 88 coupe or any H-body coupe of that era.
I've been waiting for YEARS for the Soliad Wendover to come to BeamNG
Why? No offence but I don't see the point of this car.
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. HOLY SHIT ive been waiting so long! I cant wait for this.
Gives me 10th gen thunderbird vibes. My guess is its going to be rwd.
I’m pretty sure it’s going to be fwd
2door grand marshall
No, it’s going to be fwd and have a load of different engines
But its a similar concept? Looks actually more like a modern Buick Reatta
They are 2 different types of cars though. That’s like saying a bmw 5 series is the same concept as a c-class coupe, when they are very different. Just because they are of a similar ish generation and country doesn’t mean that re the same
They still are too similar.
Can’t wait for the new car looks like a grandmas two door Cadillac
I hope it’s RWD like a 10th gen thunderbird.
Hopefully they add 2 cars in the update and the 2nd car is a suprise
1 car + 2 possible remasters
I was kinda hoping this will be fox body mustang of beamng
*Cutlass Ciera intensifies*
I'm hopeful for a Luxury model similar to the C Body Cadillac Coupe Deville with a Transverse V8.
please tell me they have the word "lazer " in the car name
Nope, it’s called the soliad wendover
I really like that they add cars that aren't necessarily very popular at the moment. It is just more interesting!
Is this a mod or is this a real vehicle there adding?
Real vehicle. Called the soliad wendover, going to be a full-size American car. Also going to be fwd, there is rumours of a bolide remaster in the same update aswell
So real like by beamng drive I won't have to download anything?! It just going to be a real car in an update?!
jebus this thing is sexy
That looks brilliant
No, it's a Wendover
wtf, they are releasing that?
What's wrong with it?
Too similar to the legran, globally forgettable like the legran.
The only reason the LeGran is forgetable is because it doesn't really have any additional parts. The update + rework will probably change that
It doesn't have any extra parts because nobody cares, including the modders who could have added parts.
The same goes for the Pessima 2, the Barstow,...
