I'm typically right about these sorts of things, but only because what I want to happen never clouds my ability to see what will probably happen instead. 

I've said it a few times, if we want a small, throw-back racer we are probably going to have to make it ourselves.  None of this kickstarter bull crap though.... there are plenty of talented programmers and artists lurking around these forums... they could work on it in their spare time and if/when a release is possible, throw it on steam and split any profit.  I don't think such a niche product would make a lot of money though... it'd have to be a labor of love.

A start would be getting some models together, i did a search but couldn't find any that were free to download.

I'm going to volunteer a friend who works for a mobile games company and has been making high-quality poly-limited assets (cars, tracks, whatever) for some top-listed mobile racing games for a few years now. He might be looking for stuff to add to his portfolio...

I'm now wondering if converting some mobile phone games might not be half the answer. The controls, handling and game model might need altering, but the engine would already be there. Are there emulators for mobile phone game?

Also, can we ensure any possible project goes forward with a 480p resolution as it's lowest setting, so those of us wanting to use actual arcade monitors can run it?

I think we need to worry about assembling a team first.  I'll volunteer my services, but what I could do for a full-fledged game might be limited.  I can do art assets and *maybe* a bit of programming depending upon the engine used. 

I would like to see something like 2k6 that will run on virtually anything and have both 4:3 and 16:9 screen options in any resolution. 

An option for models might be 3d scanning.  I've always wanted to build one of those 3d laser scanners and I'm guessing scanning a scale model of a car wouldn't be terribly hard.  It'd have to be altered to avoid copyright issues of course.  That's the other thing to keep in mind... you can make cars that sort of look like real cars, but they can't be an exact match nor can they have any of the badging.

That's really impressive looking! The guy's really captured the essence of an arcade racer from that era.

That is really impressive.  Unfortunately he's also captured the terrible look of a psx era racer.  Personally I would want cars and environments that look more modern, but with camera angles and handling that remind you of the early racers.

I can do music. Music that I'm comfortable doing, which is more on the rock and roll side of things. I get people all the time who hear something I've done then hire me to write some EDM sounding nonsense that I'm never happy with.

Ok if we are going to consider this then I'm making a new thread.  See you all there.

Take this with a mahoosive pinch of salt, but it looks like the game might not be dead after all...

https://www.nicalis.com/games/90ssupergp

Still no news on a release date (although the website says 'coming soon'), but there are at least couple of new screenshots.

Like you said, grain of salt. Nicalis isn't exactly the most trustworthy publisher but here's hoping.

Interesting thing I keep thinking about it, if it does come out... we never even got a chance to played the game, so for all we know its not very good...
