Since 2014 Škoda Octavia Classic Series II [Typ 1Z]
JFK wrote This isnt in production no more, but i cant find when it ended.

I would assume 2017? That's when the newer Octavia was facelifted and the pre-facelift model was renamed Octavia Classic.

Since 2019 BMW X7 [G07]
Mark0 wrote Is it me or this look like Navigator copy?

They're both big SUVs with lots of chrome, but I think the Navigator is a bit different. Much boxier and with different styling elements.
On the other hand, if people believe this BMW looks like the Lincoln, that's a good thing, because the Navigator is the one to beat in this segment.

Since 2013 Zhongxing Grand Tiger TUV
SolanaBogon wrote Althought clearly branded as Zhongxing in most (if not all) sources I found, either in English or in Chinese, including the official website, on the manufacturer nameplate of this vehicle we can clearly read "品牌 田野牌" on the 3rd line, which can be translated as "brand: Tianye", Tianye Auto being the old name of Zhongxing Auto. I don't really know what to think of this

I think it's fine as Zhongxing.

Since 2018 Jiangxi Isuzu Ruimai
I noticed you made a mistake on the engines. Where it says "motor type" you should put 4 cyl, and where it says "valves", you should put 8 or 16, whichever is applicable. 2018-10-08 17:27
Since 2018 Audi A1
Rinspeed, is it possible to see a list of cars in the Upcoming Cars category? That way we can see if there are any on the website that are already in production and can be removed.

2018 Škoda Vision RS
Mark0 wrote Can someone make some sport hatch with 3 doors...

There is Mini, Abarth 500 and DS3 for example. But I don't think 3-door cars are that popular anymore.

Besturn
JFK wrote Maybe we could do it as with VAZ/Lada

But having cars named Besturn Bestune wouldn't make sense I think
2018-10-01 11:32
Besturn So rename the page to Bestune but leave the old cars named Besturn? 2018-10-01 11:31
Besturn Apparently, the English name of this brand is being changed to Bestune, while the Chinese name doesn't change. How do we change that on WCS? 2018-10-01 00:11

I don't think it's a problem, there aren't that many, and some are still interesting because they show experiments that never made production.

2011-2012 Toyota Avensis Mk.III
SolanaBogon wrote I'm changing origin to Europe because since at least the 2nd gen the Avensis was developed, designed and engineered in Europe.
And since Toyota's European R&D center is located in Brussels, maybe we can be more precise and put origin as Belgium, but that would be too much assumption I think.

I have to disagree. It's still completely based on Japanese underpinnings, and we can't specify any European country as being the origin of this car. I would like to keep it as Origin: Japan.

Since 2019 Kia Telluride
The car has been modified with bullbars and off-road accessories to fit the Texas design theme at the fashion event. However, the car without those parts is apparently how it will look in production. 2018-09-09 13:51
2000-2003 Dacia SupeRNova
Shouldn't this be listed as 5-dr Hatchback? It looks like it has a hatch in the back..
(Same goes for the Novas and Solenza on WCS)

Since 2018 Kia K900 Series II
carcrasher88 wrote Such a shame that, unlike Genesis, this car doesn't get it's own unique look, instead looking like a copy of a Mercedes-Benz S-Class with an interior that looks part S-Class and part 7 Series. It's not ugly, it's just too derivative.

I think more than anything, it just looks very bland. I don't think people will remember it in 10 years.

This car looks so weird. The front and back are fine on their own, but the side looks so bland, like they forgot to do anything with it.. 2018-08-29 12:12
2018 Italdesign Nissan GT-R50
speedfreak975 wrote It was nice in 2010 but it got boring real fast. Plus I dont really consider a supercar. More like sports car. This was refreshing

Sure, it's a little bit older, but it used to beat cars 5x its price on the track. It probably still beats a lot of cars you consider "supercars". I'm glad it's still around and looks the way it does, because there are too many cars like new McLarens that look just horrible because of all the aero parts that are tacked on.

It's owned by Renault. The full official name is Renault Samsung Motors I believe. It basically sells Renaults (and formerly also Nissans) in South Korea.

The V6 wasn't compatible with 4WD I think. But they still wanted to give it 4WD on some engine.

You don't need to add more than one picture for the same color.

1987-1989 Mazda Etude
Mr. Avanzato wrote 10,000 were made, more than the successor in the Japanese market but most Etudes ended up being imported into New Zealand or scrapped.

I doubt it was exactly 10,000. Also, the Japanese wikipedia doesn't have a source for this number so I'm not sure how correct it is.

1991-1998 Autozam Mazda AZ-3
Mr. Avanzato wrote Only 2284 JDM market models were made the rest (and the majority) being for other markets.

I believe that number is for the AZ-3 and Presso combined, so you can't put it on this page.

I believe it's a Suzuki Alto built under license by Zotye, seeing how production started when that of the Alto ended.

Since 2014 Cadillac Escalade Series IV [GMTK2XX]
carcrasher88 wrote Should be 2014 only, 2015+ (2016+ model year in the US) Escalades have the new Cadillac crest, and apparently the chrome around the lower intake was also slimmed down a bit. 2017 model year and newer models have an updated grille and headlights, while the center console was redesigned for the 2018 model year.

I'm aware of this change. However, it's a very minor facelift, which combined with a lack of good pictures of the post-facelift model doesn't really deserve a separate page.

1969-1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser Series II [A-Body]
Interestingly enough, the Vista Cruiser until 1973 and the Buick Sport Wagon until 1970 had a much longer wheelbase than the sedans they were based on. They have three rows of seats and distinctive skylights in the raised roof.
The Sport Wagon from 1970 onwards returned to the shorter wheelbase and lost the skylights, as did the Vista Cruiser when the new generation of GM A-Body cars launched for 1973.

1982-1994 OTO Melara R 2.5 Gorgona

I believe so, the brand produces different military vehicles and weapons, so it was probably built as a rescue and heavy duty vehicle.

1992-1994 Autozam Clef
Mr. Avanzato wrote Built on Mazdas GE platform meaning it is related to the Cronos, MS-6 and Telstar

My bad, I had in my head that the Clef was a hardtop. I won't connect it to the MS-6, because that is a hatchback.

1992-1994 Autozam Clef
carcrasher88 wrote Anyone ever notice how similar the back end of the Clef is to a Pontiac Grand Am of the same time period? Not virtually identical, but there's some very clear similarities.

Yeah you're right. I think it's a coincidence though.

2015-2018 Citroën Berlingo
Rinspeed why did you discontinue it? It's still for sale on the French Citroën website. 2018-07-14 12:31
Holden So I did some maintenance on this page, as the line-up was completely outdated. Unfortunately, I can't add any new cars since the current Holden website doesn't list specifications for its cars (whatever happened to informing the consumer?)...

TLDR: The Holden page will be empty for the foreseeable future.

Since 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt MkVI
Rinspeed wrote ?? it's a limited series, i don't think there is change about engine. Why a page for it?

It has 20 more hp than the normal Mustang, and the other Bullitts also have a separate page since they were created before the limited edition system existed, so I don't know if they should have pages or not.

Since 2016 Bentley Bentayga
Mark0 wrote There is diesel? No comment...
When you have money for car, money for fuel isn't a problem...

It has superior torque to the petrol V8, so I guess it's better for towing horses? Or maybe it's for the rich people who prefer to pollute the environment even more.
