Since 2015 Jaguar XJ [X351]
Are the engine names on this car really correct? I can't find proof of the I-4 and V6 being from Mazda and Toyota. What's more, the 1MZ-FE engine from Toyota was in cars between 1993 and 2006, so I highly doubt that it would appear in a 2015+ top-of-the-line Jaguar. 2018-04-25 09:20
Since 2015 Jaguar XE S [X760]
Mark0 wrote Jaguar stopped production of V6 XE and XF.
First they stopped producing V12 and V8 cars.
Then they stopped prodcing Lancer Evolution.
Every single manufacturer have SUV in their range.
What's next?

Well, they're expecting the Lancer Evo to come back as a crossover, but I don't think that makes you happier.

what? i don't understand
you don't prefer years of activity? because in some case there is some "hole" in the activity with a relaunch.

That's true, maybe Years of Activity is better.

I meant like you made this page to discuss changes to WebCarStory, there should also be a page to discuss anything related to racing cars and championships on WCS, because those comments are often posted on random pages.

Instead of Founded, it was better to put Years of Activity (i don't know the real name), no?

Maybe Founding Year and Final Year?

Also, for future comments, maybe it's a good idea to make a page like this for motorsport?

2003-2006 Toyota Estima (Estima L, Estima T) Mk.II
Just like the Alphard, the Estima was also sold in two versions, depending on the dealership network. You can tell the Estima L and T apart by their front emblems (blue and red respectively) and their rear turn signals. Although the Estima T and L were around until 2006, they received identical taillights during the 2003 facelift. 2018-04-22 23:01

You want the same system as limited series? With a specific page with 3 pics?

I think that would work?
Just a name and two or three pics is enough. I don't think I will often post interior pictures for such a thing.

2005-2008 Toyota Alphard (Alphard G, Alphard V) Mk.I
The first generation Alphard was sold at two different Toyota dealership networks. One got the Alphard G, and the other got the Alphard V. They look slightly different, with G/V badges and somewhat different grilles, but not enough to warrant separate pages. For the second generation, the Netz dealership network which sold the Alphard V got the Vellfire as a replacement, and Toyopet's Alphard G was renamed Alphard.

Ford (Australia)
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.

Fiat 500S for example?

Yes, I think that's a good example of what I mean. I don't think it's different enough from the normal Fiat 500 for a separate page, but it does deserve to be shown on the website.

it's easy for premium cars but not for others. Each one can have differents alloy wheels etc

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.

but for Europe it's a problem

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.

Perhaps a different section... i don't know how to add it at the moment. I hadn't understand the part for the small pics at the end of you message.

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.

Rinspeed wrote Hi, this is a false make (it will erase later).
Before the summer, like each year, i ask you about new feature for Webcarstory or things to change, erase etc. Each year i had a lot of time in summer to do it.
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?

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)

Genesis (USA) 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.

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.

Escortlover wrote

I know that but i wanna know why it was made or what made them to make it

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.

Since 2017 Lynk & Co 01
Starting next year, this and other Lynk & Co models will be produced in Ghent, Belgium. This factory is currently a big Volvo factory, but the new XC40 which is produced over there shares a lot of its design with the L&C 01 and 02. 2018-03-27 00:09
1982-1987 Ford Telstar MkI
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
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
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.

Since 2018 GMC Sierra Denali Mk.IV
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.

Like BMW is amrketing their cars as 750 but car have 4.4 engine.

Agreed, but with BMW, I would list the engine something like 750i (4.4 BMW etc etc).

I was thinking of maybe doing something like 4.9 Ford Windsor "5.0"?
2018-01-31 10:39
1979-1980 Ford Bronco MkIII
Just wondering if anyone had an opinion on how to name these engines.
From the late 70s on, when American cars switched from cu (302) to cc (4942), Ford sold its 4942cc V8 engine as the 5.0 Ford Windsor, which of course should be 4.9.
Should I list it as 5.0, because that is how Ford sold it? Or should I list it as 4.9, because that is correct?

Well, I think Rinspeed will reject it, as you didn't add the engine, but you really need some dimensions like length, width, height if you want to add it to the website. Of course, the best thing would be to wait until the car enters production and the car is no longer a mystery.

About the specs you posted, why does it first say 5007 hp and then 3006 hp?

Since 2014 Nissan Juke
carcrasher88 wrote Pretty obvious that the successor will be a localized version of the Kicks.

I'm not so sure about that. I have found very few rumors on Japanese websites about the Kicks coming to Japan, and the rumors about the Juke's successor are that it may be based on the Gripz concept from 2015. It is also expected to feature an e-Power mild hybrid engine, like the Note.

I think it's possible that the Kicks might be the Juke successor in America, but not in Europe and Japan. The Juke sells a lot better in the last two areas, and there might also be more demand for a stylish, customizable and turbocharged compact crossover in these areas. The Kicks is much more a budget crossover than the Juke after all.
