    Incomplete vehicle information?

    Does anyone else notice when you go through the list of cars that the engine placement icon for every car shows it mid-engines? The corvette and the Porsche ( except the 911 rsr which is) both show that they are mid when they are not.

    It shows the driven wheels, not engine placement. Any idiot who knows anything about cars should be able to figure out where the engine is in any car.

    It was just something I noticed. In the first game i seemed there was more details.

    This confused me at first as well, until I realised it was only showing the driven wheels. Why it has the giant square in the middle of the car is beyond me. As for "any idiot" being able to work it out, there are a lot of lesser known cars in this game where it is not completely obvious. That post is elitism at it's finest. Why not make it educational and accessible?

    Actually you’d be pretty surprised how often people can’t figure out where the engine is in my Cayman S. It’s a little more obvious in the 650s.

    It is something that has been bugging me from day one. Yes indeed it looks as if all cars are mid-engine and it sure is confusing. I would like to see SMS enhance their car drivetrain/enginebay icon for the garage list so that it is immediately obvious what type you car you are dealing with (FR, FF, F4, M4, MR, RR, etc)

    ... which is not what this topic is about. It’s about the engine placement.
