I love the ST205 and never noticed that!
It might’ve been bleeding edge for ‘94, but by the late ‘90s, 3D models had come a long way. Check out CMR, TOCA, Gran Turismo, NFS III, High Stakes and Porsche, Tokyo Xtreme Racer, MSR, Porsche Challenge, Sega GT, Sega Rally 1 and 2, Sega Touring Car, Rally de Europe, GT64, World Driver Championship.
