Unfortunately I can't find pictures with better angles. This car is a prototype for the Cosmo Sport, and it is either shelved at Mazda's headquarters, or no longer exists.
It's not displayed in their museum in Hiroshima.

I couldn't find any of the other colors in the Canadian brochure I looked up and I'm not sure if they're sold in Canada. Should we provide French names for those colors?

2008-2012 Nissan Fairlady Z MkVI
We use "related cars" only for cars which are either the same car but sold by a different brand, or a different car based on the same platform/body.
Nissan 370Z is NOT to be added to related cars, since Fairlady Z and 370Z are the same car by the same brand.

2016-2019 Infiniti QX30
Maki wrote Infiniti's Canadian website already stopped listing it after the 2018 model year. Apparently this thing only lasted for 2 model years there.
www.infiniti.ca/en/qx30/

While it is still listed on the US website, it's described as a 2019 model whereas all the other models are listed as 2020s, so I guess its days there are numbered.

Yes, production of it has already finished this summer. The Mercedes GLA on which it is based got a new generation, but the Q(X)30 was confirmed to not get a successor.

Also, the LaCrosse still needs to be removed from current road cars, as that went out of production in North America back in February 15th of this year.

Itís my general policy to take cars out of the current car section when they are removed from the brandís official website, not when their production halts.

Since 2014 Chevrolet Colorado Mk.II [GMT31XX]
carcrasher88 wrote Here's a good question. The ZR2 model is quite visually different than the standard Colorado, as well as only offering the diesel I4 and gas V6 powertrain options, should it be listed as a separate vehicle on here, like the various Camaros and Corvettes?

And don't forget the even more visually different looking ZR2 Bison, and the fact that the 2021 ZR2 will further separate itself from the standard Colorado.

I think the ZR2 can be added as a separate vehicle with the Bison as special edition.

There's a lot of Japanese 90s vans in the UK, they were apparently popular imports back in the day. They were not officially sold there by those brands though.

During my time in the UK, I saw a lot of Mazda Bongo Friendee and Toyota Estima Emina/Lucida vans.

I thought it looked quite similar to the Crossland/Mokka. I've looked again and it is a subtly different design but you can't deny the similarities.

Well both the Mokka and this car were designed by GM Korea, so they have some similarities.

Itís correct, the 1.1 and 1.3 are rotary engines. Those generally have a very small displacement, but are more powerful than a much bigger conventional engine.

The diesel option can be removed, as it has been cancelled. AWD is new for the 2020 model year, though.

I deleted the diesel engine. Can't find any info so far about the AWD though.

HQMonaro1972 wrote

Did this man just say they don't lOOK DIFFERENT ENOUGH? or SPECIAL ENOUGH?

Desscythe, with all due respect, that's a bit dumb.

They're different packages with their own performance statistics and differences from the originals. And if you want to hit me with the whole "tHeY dOnT loOk dIFfErEnT" thing, why do all the packages for the Camaros have different pages? Or the ones for the previous Trans Ams?
Regardless I'm already getting stuff put together to make their own pages, so :/

Alright, calm down there.

Generally speaking, we don't make separate pages for cars when they are visually extremely similar to another car sold in the same market. Older Trans Ams have different bumpers, lights, etc. from the normal Firebirds. For the 92-02 model, this is no longer the case. They might have a different hood or something, but other than that, they don't really look different. Therefore, it's not necessary to create a page for every single version of the car. If they have different engines, we can just compile those on one page instead to keep the website from becoming terribly cluttered.

The 70-73 Camaro I divided in a couple of pages because they all had very different facias. After 73, there is just a page for the regular Camaro and the Z/28 or IROC-Z.

Trans Am: 1992-1997(also please change the pictures of that, they're both of Trans Ams not Firebirds), 1997-2002

I don't think the 92-02 generation looks different enough as a Trans Am to warrant separate pages. Also don't think the Formula looks special enough.

HQMonaro1972 wrote For the versions that don't have them, I'm going to be making separate pages for packages for the Firebirds(like Trans Ams, Formulas). Because of this, after the pages are made, is it possible to remove the engines exclusive to those models?

The Trans Am already has mostly separate pages. What other versions need their own pages?

-It's based on the Mercedes-Benz GLA, so its origin should be Germany.

- It uses the same platform and engines, but it's not just a rebadged GLA, so origin: Japan.
- It's still for sale on the Infiniti USA website.

Specifics for engines and transmissions. I worked on Commodores quite a bit so I'm covered for those, but the stuff like Kingswoods, Monaros and the like are a bit rusty on me. By specifics I mean horses, torque, and what years they were available in them.

I ain't trusting Wikipedia. :/

Try automobile-catalog, they seem to have a lot of info on Holdens.

Like seriously, I'd already have it half complete, but I don't know if my information is hefty enough to make pages for cars, so if I could get any assistance from you gentlemen it would be appreciated.

Why is it a problem? There are few people contributing to this website, and lots of cars out there, so there is bound to be missing cars.
What kind of assistance do you need?
