It looks more like an rx7 to me rather than a 1994 Corvette. It makes way more sence too. As you were saying the '94 Vette Doesn't make sence because VC is based in the '80's The rx7 is from the 70's - 80's so that makes way more sence. I like many others cannot wait untill it is relased...
Laterzzz. :alien: . :)

I reckon it's a Pontiac.

The body on the banshee is like the F-Body used on KITT in knight rider.

KITT was an eighties car AND you can actually buy a 'Banshee Front Nose' for the 1993-1995 Pontiac Firebird.

Once again....these cars are NOT licensed. That means they aren't any of the cars you named. A Banshee is just that....a Banshee. The cars in the games borrow styling cues from several different real-life cars. Therefore, it could be all 3 of those cars.

To me, it looks most like a C4 Corvette, which was produced from 1984-1996.

r u tryin to tell me that thats a banshee?

im confused. but if thats what you're saying then your wrong b/c that just an old FireBird. Just b/c its called a Banshee doesnt mean its the Banshee from GTA3 or VC.

Jeez it hasnt even came out yet and we're already arguing over where the cars got their design  :bored:  :sui:

It does somewhat resemble the 1st gen RX-7, but it is definately a Vette.  Look at the front and rear Fascia.  They are Identicle to the vette, and totally different from the Rixer.

Check it out --



I hope they do have an RX-7 clone in the game.  That would be cool (I used to own a 2nd Gen Rixer).  The Banshee is definately the Corvette tho.

I agree I think that Rockstar would want more powerful cars than that of a nissan rx-7

I think that it does look a lot like a early Vette.


.::EDIT::.
Why does it matter what kind of car it is? It's just a game.  A Banshee will be a Banshee.  A Banshee won't be a Corvette or a RX-7, but a Banshee!  Clear enough?

I dont see what the argument is about, the banshee resembles the corvette, not the rx7.

"Popular with redneck lottery winners."
Now what would a redneck lottery winner buy...definately not an import.  Im sure now, rednecks will buy pretty much anything if they won the lottery, but in the 80's imports weren't very popular.

Also, do you really think you'd have to win the lottery to get an 80's rx7?

It's a vette. Not an rx-7. We all know how popular imports are with rednecks :sigh:
Just look at the pcture from the rear. It has a circular tail light on each side compared to twin circular tail-lamps on the vette. obviously they couldn't do the twin design as it would be too obvious. Also look at the front. It has two long foglights/turn signals in the bottom bumper just like the 1984-1990 vette.

Imports are extremely popular with rednecks....I live in Mississippi, and the "riceboy" craze is reaching new heights here. True, not all "ricers" drive imports (You can have a "riced-up" Mustang or Neon), but most of them here seem to favor Japanese cars. :whuh:

I WAS making a mod of an 80s RX7 (2nd Gen, late 80s mind) and it looks nothing like that, its only when you pay a lot of attention to a car do you notice its design fully

Wankel Rotary engines are vastly more powerful than Piston Combustion engines, they just take up a lot of fuel

for proof, why do you think the 787B Le Mans car was banned after whooping the field in the 1991 Le Mans?

Well if we wish to we can edit them to look more like 'vettes or RX7s when the PC version is out, a cars a car that ones called a banshee and is a banshee not a vette or rx7

notice he mentioned that now things are diffenent, but vc takes place in the eighties.  


and as for the topic, the banshee is styled very closely after the vet.  it has the lines of the vet and the size of the vet, if they were trying to make an rx7 like car the did one horable job becuse its not only way to big but seriously deformed.  its realy shocking to me how many people dont see that.
