hey guys...i dont know if any of you have noticed but the banshee has changed to a totally different car... its actually a corvette...a 1993 corvette to be exact..now..why doesnt this make sense? cuz the game is set in the 80's which means that car model isnt even out yet...hey its not that big of a deal but whatever... heres a pic of the 1993 Corvette:

now think about this General Motors uses a relitivaly close car model each year for about 10 years for most cars usually exceptions include the 53'-55' the model only lasted 3 years. eg. the 97-present vetts are preatty close. now the corvette in the game could be from the range of 84'-96' they are all the same except some minor changes also R* couldn't make it close to any one more than another because they are so close that is why you thought it was a 93' but instead it could be any one from84 to 96 because the are so close. exact copying calls for R* to be licenced but they aren't going that far.

sorry for the poor quality here is the 84' Chevrolet Corvette

Just like the PSG-1 they have in VC, the psg-1 is a police sharpshooter weapon wich costs over 10.000$, i don't think police corpses can afford that, they prefer the m24 anyways.

It doesn't makes any sense, they should replace it with an scoped m-14/m21 or a m24 SWS.

Yup, but they've messed up on another area when it comes to the banshee. I mean, from the screenshots, it's obvious that the Vice banshee is a Chevrolet Corvette. But in GTA3, the banshee didn't look anything like the Corvette at all! Even considering that the '84 vette looks a bit different from the '97-03. The GTA3 banshee looks more like some sort of small Viper or something..

dude i dont tink it was sposed to be a viper in III but in VC they can change the car to represent something back then since they didnt have vipers!

didi they say anything about it suppose to be looking like a vette?!!?!?! its called a banshee... not a corvette! so you cant say that they were wrong, because the game is FICTION, they can do whatever the hell they want as long as it sort of resembles the eighties

ive a seen a vette model from the 80's that looks like that, its not like that model was 90's +

I think (but im not sure) that they have a vehicle to represent each type of car e.g. american sports cars= Banshee, and Sentinel would be executive cars.

In GTA3 the Banshee is a Dodge Viper
In GTA4 the Banshee is a  Chevy Corvette

Both of them have crappy handling

The Stinger is a Porche 911
The Cheetah is a Ferrari
The Infernus is unknown
The Sential is a BMW

These all have good handling

BMW's are made in or around Italy so  :r*: really knows what they are doing.

you must drive like sh*t becuase the banshee has probably the second best handling in the game next to the cheetah, let go of the gas once in a while

when did we start talking about gta4?

once again, rockstar can do whatever the hell they want...

and the thing with the banshee...

think about how camaros have changed, they didnt look how they do today back in the 80's, kinda like the banshee in gta3.
the banshee in gta3 VC comes before the other, and dont forget the 20 years difference...

one last thing, its not called a corvette, so it doesnt have to look like a corvette, the game isnt real life, if it was... no1 would live in miami or liberty city (if there was one). this world would be f*cked up if it was like gta3...

That body style that is in the video was on the 84-90 corvette. In 91-96 they changed the front and rear bumpers blus painted the body moldings to match the color of the car. The vette in the video is clearly the older body style. Too bad it doesn't have quad tail-lights though :(

Oh and the corvette does not handle like crap in real life. I drove one on a race tracka  few times and it sticks to the road like glue.

cars are just cars some of them may look like reality cars and they may be slightly based on cars from the 80s but what does it matter? why are u moaning about a car in probably the greatest game in the world surely all of the great new stuff will overide the possible bad stuff! quit dissin  :r*:
