GT5 has a fudge ton of cars, but unfortunately not all were given the Premium treatment. If you could have a handful of standard cars upgraded to premium models, which ones would you choose? 
My tentative list would include the following:   

  • Audi Quattro '82
  • Toyota Supra RZ '97
  • Honda CRX SiR '90
  • Nissan 180SX Type X '96
  • RUF CTR "Yellow Bird" '87 (though I'd settle for any RUF)
  • Subaru Impreza Rally Car '01
  • Ford Escort Rally Car '98

More tuner cars from guys like Mugen and Amuse. Especially the Carbon R. the FGT would have been nice as well since that car is entirely fictional and not actually modeled after something (it just takes inspirations from),

@KaosAngel: I'd like the 86 as well, along with Mako's Sileighty! 
@FrankCanada97: Yeah, it would be nice to get all the touring and Le Mans cars, and maybe to get more of them in the process. I wouldn't mind a greater selection of BTCC cars from the past twenty years. 
@flickr: I'm kinda surprised the Koenigsegg isn't in GT5, being such an iconic sports car of the 2000s (at least I thought it was). I'd also like the old 70's Nissan Zs thrown in there, and the existing models upgraded. There's a severe lack of classic premium sports cars in GT5. 
@StaticFalconar: I'd like to see those too. They have a ton of standard ones in the game already, so it's not like they don't have enough to choose from. 
@Red12b: I could have guessed you'd say that :P

@Binman88: I am with you on the RUFs, the BRT and CRT are a handful but oh so much fun to drive.    
The Volvo 240 estate, and add more Swedish cars.  :)
I would also like to see some of the classic Japanese sports cars as premiums (Toyota 2000GT is another example). 
Old rally cars are cool, so wouldn't mind an upgrade on some of those.  
And more cars available for racing modification would be nice.

Bugatti Veyron should have been a premium car from the start.
