Why oh why isn't there a civilian varient of the New Gen Stainer? :(

I was wondering this myself the other day. They designed a new one for the parked cop cars, Blaine County cop cars, and the taxi, but instead of removing all the police/cab stuff off of it, they imported the old cop car from IV to do just that (there's even an LCPD computer screen in it!).

PS2 era had 2 types of taxi: Taxi and Cabbie.

 

Plus, there are special ones called Borgnine (red taxi) and Zebra Cab. Probably I'm still missing the other special taxi.

 

ah the Borgnine (reference to cabbie from Escape from New York played by Ernest Borgnine )

There was a Special Taxi on GTA III....

I want it!

This was actually a car from Carmageddon, nice touch with it being in GTA3 as well though!

 

I'm a huge Carmageddon fan and I can assure you that's not true. Maybe it's some kind of tribute, since it looks like a vehicle that is good to run people over with, but that's it.

My guess is because for the last few years of the Crown Victoria's life, it was only produced as a fleet vehicle (for taxi companies, police departments, etc.). So if there are any civilian versions out there, they'd be decomissioned fleet vehicles.

Yeah, I watch some of that fake taxi porn.

 
OT: Yeah, it'd be cool if we could re-create some of the "special" cars in the game (police car, gruppe sechs truck etc.).

The spikes are in reference to that game at the very least then.

Anyone else that doesn't like the new taxi?

 

Always preferred the new GTA IV taxi vehicles.

I don't know if it's the pictures that make it look so but it seems so yellow, as if it's a lime green/yellow kind of look to it. A sick yellow, you know? A yellow/orange look to it like in GTA IV would be better.

It may be nice in general, but I still can't figure, why do you need it, OP? Want a cab, call a cab and use it. Since there are no taxis in traffic in GTAO it will be hard to merge with traffic going off-radar.

Modifications? Base model of taxi has pretty balanced specs, so adding turbo won't be dramatic in the term of speed, since you can almost drive it without brake, unless want a full stop or smooth 180. Armor is useless, windows are exposed, max speed is a joke. Custom tires won't help traction. Why not use in-game cab, it costs chicken sh*t and no insurance required. Brake it, drop it.

If you want to start cab service for players, buy Exemplar, Super Diamond, Felon or any other 4-door sedan, mod it and be badass transporter. 

 

 

I have seen plenty of taxi's driven by NPC's in freeroam, look harder
