Mark0 wrote Are the Falcon's still available to buy?
I can't stand Holden vs Ford guys at Supercars comment section, it's pure cancer, but Holden supporters main thing is that Ford is racing car that you can't buy.

I think both Falcon and Commodore have finished production, so it they are still for sale, it's leftover stock.

Maybe I didn't explain it well enough, it's not for such small differences as alloys/rims or an exhaust or something. I was really thinking like bodykits, grilles, spoilers, and preferably a combination of these things. It has to be things you can see are different from a distance.

Here is another example:
webcarstory.com/voiture.php?id=28671

The Auster Euroforma at the bottom of the page has subtle, but noticeable differences, it doesn't have a different engine.

Can you give an example of a car that would cause a problem? I think trim levels may have different names in a few countries, but I can't think of a car that has a certain look in one country, but not in the other.

I think it could be a way of adding Audi S Line and such, which don't have any different engines, to the website without creating new pages.
Of course it's also up to the contributor to decide if a trim level needs to have pictures. Not every single trim level is different enough to require it.

I was thinking maybe small pics on the car's page of different versions with small visual changes that are not enough for a new page.

For example: www.webcarstory.com/voiture.php?id=19611

As you can see, I put the Infiniti QX80 Limited in the special editions section, even though it was built for 2 years. I don't think the Limited needs a special page or anything, but it would be nice if some small pics of the Limited could be on the QX80 page, because it has different features, like clear taillights.

I personally won't do anything with model cars, so do as you like.

I was wondering if the special editions could be changed a little bit? If you've seen the way I use that section, I usually add trim levels of cars that have a different grille, or maybe a bodykit, but nothing different when it comes to engines.
Could the special editions section be changed to Limited Edition/Special Edition/Trim Differences? Otherwise, maybe add a new section that could be used for just extra (small) pics of the car? (Though it should resize pics automatically, like the pictures in the "last completed" bar)

Return of model cars is not bad idea. Since I have 800 of them I could upload pic of every car :D

Also few years back I asked about adding some info about manufacturers like founding date, founder, HQ location and that. You said that it was difficult for some manufacturers but I think that's easy for big amount of them.

For models cars, i had also a lot and there is also the official pics from some makers( Ixo, Spark...). It will be easy i think to put it, i think i had always the old files.

For the infos, if this is simple infos, yes we can.

My proposition: return of the model cars (i had erase them quickly in the past), because a lot of men passionate by cars collect some models cars and it could be a new public for WCS.

What about your propositions? Changes? Critics about my proposition?

Genesis (USA) carcrasher88 US (13)Well, by 2020, they plan to introduce a coupe (possibly somewhat previewed by the Essentia) and two SUVs. They're actually selling quite well, and recently jumped to the very top of Consumer Report's vehicle scoring and vehicle reliability rankings.

Give 'em time, and they'll have an even bigger and better lineup.

I think Ford will never put a V8 in a new car again, and the V8 engine will probably become exclusive to the Mustang, if Ford doesn't replace it with a V6 TT.

Genesis (USA) Desscythe17 NL (9071)
I'm kind of surprised Genesis is first introducing three sedans to the American market before bringing a crossover. Cadillac is a perfect example of a brand that has too many sedans and too few crossovers, and because of that has terrible sales (besides the Escalade). I think that is a bad sign for Genesis if they don't bring anything into SUV-land soon.

Fiat (and Lancia as well before they were gone) often made special editions of the 500/Ypsilon together with different fashion labels. Having a jeans-themed 500 isn't too different from that, so there you go.

The Telstar got a facelift in 1985, but the only obvious change is that the front indicators moved down to the bumper (like you can see on the main picture). Due to a lack of pictures, the pre- and post-facelift cars will not get separate pages for now. 2018-03-26 16:43

1999-2001 Ford Ka
Desscythe17 NL (9071)
The Ford Ka was briefly sold in Japan, albeit slightly different from the European one. Due to the Japanese climate, Ford Japan decided to add a large radiator and airco, which required a larger grille. The Japanese model could only be bought with most options on European models as standard trim. Sales ended after two years, as the car didn't sell well. This is likely due to the car not being available with an automatic transmission, the manual version not having a tachometer, and not being sporty enough in general.

Since 2018 Honda Jade RS
Desscythe17 NL (9071)
It's interesting to see how the segment of the Honda Jade is coming to an end. The Honda Jade falls into the 7-seater "wagon" segment, meaning it has three rows of chairs, but also a low roof.
This page is for the updated model that will start selling in May, and Honda has decided to discontinue the regular 7-seater version due to low sales, and only sell the RS, which has two rows of chairs.
We can see the same happened with its predecessor, the Honda Stream, which lost its three-row specification in 2012, whereas the two-row Stream RSZ was only discontinued in 2014.

If we take a look at its competitors, it's clear that this kind of car is coming to an end. The Mazda Premacy and its sister car Nissan Lafesta are both discontinued, although the Nissan is still present on their website.
The Subaru Exiga is planned to stop selling by the end of this month, and the Toyota Prius alpha is probably not getting a successor when the current generation ends.

Unlike the big Japanese minivans, like the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Elgrand and Toyota Alphard, this segment is clearly losing sales to crossovers, which are more trendy than the more conservative wagons.

carcrasher88 wrote Clearly, GMC is looking to revolutionize the pickup truck market with the new Sierra.

Two new GMC exclusive, industry first features available for the Sierra are the new MultiPro Tailgate, with six unique positions and functions, with a smaller tailgate portion that can be pulled down, while the rest of the tailgate stays in place, and the revolutionary CarbonPro cargo box, which is the first ever production pickup truck bed made with carbon fiber inner panels and floor. While the rest of the cargo box remains roll-formed high strength steel, the CarbonPro setup shaves 62 lbs from the standard bed's weight.

Well, I don't know if the Silverado will have these functions on higher trim levels, but I think it's kind of a shame that they would make this truck have "revolutionary" features, yet give it a very conservative design. I generally prefer GMC designs, but this time the Silverado looks much better and more innovative.
