I do wish we had the IV Turismo, though.
Yeah, the Turismo R is NOT the Turismo for me. I rather call it the "Cheetah 2" or something. The Turismo = GTA IV's Turismo. I have one saved at one of my safehouses in IV, though. So I am ok with it not being in GTA V. But when I heard the "Turismo" was coming back, I thought it would be a copy/paste job of the Turismo from GTA IV or something very similar looking to that, so I was disappointed to find a similar looking Cheetah with a Turismo name, but nevertheless, I actually LOVE the Turismo R. It's my favorite car in the game, actually, next to the Carbonizzare. I really like the Grotti cars in this game.
Same. I too couldn't help but to think that the Turismo R was a "redo" for the Cheetah because R* knows they tastelessly screwed it up. Should've got the Cheetah right the first time around and reserved the name "Turismo R" for an actual rear-mid engine coupe like the Ferrari 360 Modena's (GTAIV Turismo) successors. Not complaining though. I'm blown away by the vehicle additions lately (especially this most recent DLC). My only legitimate gripe is the lack of extra properties or garages for such flawless automobiles. I've never been afraid to call R* out on their laziness in that respect. Fingers crossed for more garage space in a DLC.
