CeilingHamster wrote There is one of these near where I live. Either:
1. This version was sold in the UK (and possibly Europe)
2. There is a European version
3. It is a grey market import and I am wasting everyone's time.
If anyone knows which it would be really helpful. Thank you in advance!

I believe it was sold throughout Europe. This page is reserved for the Japanese market one though.

Either something weird is going on with your account, or Rinspeed needs to accept the car first. Normally it shows this when a car hasn't been approved yet.

Venturi I think the brand page should have origin: Monaco to reflect the current situation.
Older models of course should have origin: France.

1981-1983 Pontiac J2000 (2000) [J-Body]
This car had a bit of an identity crisis. It was introduced for MY 1982 as the Pontiac J2000. For 1983, it was renamed the Pontiac 2000.
It got a facelift in 1984 and was renamed the Pontiac 2000 Sunbird. Then from 1985 onwards, it was known as Pontiac Sunbird.
The only exception is the convertible, which was introduced for 1983 as the Pontiac 2000 Sunbird, and then became the Sunbird in 1985.

1982-1989 Pontiac Parisienne Wagon (Safari) [B-Body]
For 1987, when the Parisienne sedan was discontinued, this was renamed simply the Pontiac Safari. 2019-07-02 22:19
1984-1986 Pontiac Parisienne [B-Body]
With the B-body Catalina and Bonneville being discontinued in 1981, Pontiac missed a lot of potential full-size car sales, with long-time customers buying at other brands.
Pontiac realized they needed a full-size car for the time being, and decided to import the Canadian-built Parisienne to the United States. The Parisienne looked like a Pontiac, but was actually built on Chevrolet underpinnings, making it a lot cheaper than bringing back the discontinued Bonneville.
2019-07-02 20:42
1981-1986 Pontiac Bonneville (Bonneville Model G, Grand LeMans) Series VII [G-Body]
This car was essentially a slightly reworked LeMans. It received the Bonneville name from the bigger B-body car that was discontinued.
The A-body platform this car was based on was renamed the G-body, since a new FWD A-body was introduced (underpinning the Pontiac 6000).
This Bonneville was also named "Bonneville Model G" for a few years because of this.

This car was called Grand LeMans for 1982 and 1983 in Canada, after which it was renamed Bonneville, marking the debut of that name in Canada.

2019 RRG Crazy Bar
CeilingHamster wrote Since these are all based on old Renaults should we not put the cars they are based on under 'similar cars' or 'other body styles'?

Since they are not officially made by Renault, I would say no. Otherwise, we would have to put every single customized or tuned car in that category.

RRG
Rinspeed wrote RRG for Renault Retail Group made contest for Renault garage in France in 2018 and in Europe in 2019. They can take an old car and transform it with 2000 euros.

So the cars were made by mechanics from Renault garages everywhere?

1969-1970 Pontiac Bonneville (Executive) Series IV [B-Body]
The three full-sized Pontiacs for 1970 were the Catalina, Executive and Bonneville.

Like Chevrolet, Pontiac made up for not having a bigger C-Platform car by having more B-Platform cars.
Unlike Chevrolet, the Pontiacs rode on bigger wheelbases. Chevrolets all had a 302cm wheelbase, the Catalina a 310cm wheelbase, and the Executive and Bonneville a 318cm wheelbase.

Visually, the Pontiacs didn't differ much, which is why I combined the Executive and Bonneville into one page.

I'm not sure if this counts as a page then, since every customized car would deserve a page that way.
If a car is customized while it's new, fine. But for an older car I'm not sure.

Since 2016 Toyota Mark X Series II
carcrasher88 wrote Toyota announced today that Mark X production will come to an end in December. Which begs the question...what is the reason for it's discontinuation?

Was the Crown RS (formerly Crown Athlete) stealing sales away from the Mark X?

Will the Mark X's discontinuation be the saving grace for the (somewhat) related Lexus GS (Mark X being on the N platform, GS being on the New N platform), which was previously rumored to be on the chopping block?

Could this also mean that there could now be room within the TNGA-N platform for a new generation of GS, since there won't be a corresponding Mark X to compete with?

I think both the Mark X and GS are disappearing, since the traditional sedan market is shrinking. The GS is the same size as the previous Crown, and both are bigger than the Mark X, so I don't think those have anything to do with each other.

Rinspeed wrote For others things, and simplifications:
Erase the vote for the design of a car?
Erase the translation of colors (only English/French)?
Erase the equipments of Limited series and just put the infos at the top (year/color/engine..) of the pages + the 3 pics = lot amount of work to not do as the equipments will gone and no more translation to do for them?

What you think all of this changes? It's just for a simplification of the website and less work for us

I think it's good, we are not a big team, so making the website a little bit simpler works.

Since 2019 Nissan Dayz MkII
carcrasher88 wrote Wow, these look great! I assume this and the eK are the first true collaborative products since Mitsubishi became part of the alliance with Renault and Nissan, right?

Love how they gave each brand their own visual identity, which is rather rare in the kei car market, where most rebrandings are simple rebadges, while here the Dayz looks like a Nissan, and the eK looks like a Mitsubishi without one being confused for the other.

Technically I guess they are, but the Otti/Dayz has always been a rebadged Mitsubishi eK, ever since its first generation. I doubt this one is any more Nissan than the previous ones.

The Nissan depicted here is the Highway Star version, which looks a bit more glamorous. The regular Dayz looks exactly like the eK Wagon. The eK, on the other hand, has a more "cool" looking version, the eK X: i.wheelsage.org/pictures/m/mitsubishi/ek_x/mitsubishi_ek_x.jpeg
As you can see, this is inspired by the recent Delica D:5 facelift, giving it Mitsubishi identity.

Rinspeed wrote I think this summer (or before if i have time) i will update a little WCS.
Tell me what is good, what is bad and what we can do if you have ideas.

> Question on the first page
- It was a fun idea, but it seems hard to keep this going. Maybe it's better to remove it?

> Bonus points
- I don't think points are that valuable, but there are a few people who add a red dot for one country for cars in the bonus points section.

> Championships
- Not my area

> Top 10
- Difficult to complete with data usually being in that country's language, or only being accessible afer paying. I still think it's interesting though.

> Car Spotting
- Seems like nobody does this anymore, it might be more interesting to put images on IGCD Discord.

> Upcoming Cars
- Would be nice to have an overview of the cars in this category. That way we can see if there are "upcoming cars" that are already for sale, as well as look at the cars that are going to be coming in the future.

> Colors
- Not interesting to me and it's an absurd amount of work.

> Limited Series
- Same as colors. Time spent on this could be spent adding new cars to the website.

> Advertising videos
- Fun, although I don't really watch any :)

> Model cars
- Not interesting to me

> System of translation
- Hard to implement. Random members translating the website can make mistakes, and it's not always clear what something means. The website could be more accessible if we had Chinese, Japanese, Russian, etc., but I don't think it's possible to have these languages. Also: If you translate the website into another language, it encourages people to comment in a different language > communication between members becomes more difficult.

> System of points members
- It's easy to say as the person with the most points, but I don't really care for it. Originally it was used to see whether someone could be an admin or not, but I think we can tell by how much work someone does, and whether they do good work.

The Mexican plant should be El Salto, Jalisco instead of just Jalisco. Jalisco is the state.
Also, if you are making changes for an entire "generation", please take in account that you also have to edit the page of the facelifted version.
