    With Michael Bay done with Transformers and Bumblebee will mark the end of the Bayverse era. Michael Bay's movies had many flaws. But I am not here to talk about that, I'm here to talk about which Car make would you like to see in the next Transformers movies. There's some pretty nice cars that can be used for the next films.

    I would like if they used the following cars in the next films;

    Mercedes
    Acura
    BMW
    Audi
    Volvo
    Jaguar
    Land Rover
    Maserati
    Subaru
    Infinity
    Volkwagen
    Cadillac
    Dodge (Challenger, Charger)
    Nissan
    Lexus
    Lamborghini
    Ferrari
    Ford (Mustang)

    I would only like the regular ones like Toyota or Subaru or Ford or GMC.

    Case in point: bay putting high-end cars like the lambo or benz or bugatti. He wasn’t able to use any of them for hardcore stunts.

    If bay were to do hardcore stunts on these cars, it would’ve most likely been more expensive translating them to CGI instead of practical effects.

    I would love more "normal" cars if it meant we could have some decent vehicle stuntage going on.

    Then normal cars, I would like to see the Honda Civic type R. Would you like to see Kia and Hyundai?

    Yep. They’re less expensive and won’t bloat the budget of the making of the movie that would otherwise go to more robot time & building up their characters.

    Heck Knight should even use second-hand cars if that is a lot cheaper. That’s what I would do to limit the expenses of the making of a Transformers movie, but having enough to have more time for the presence of the robots and develop their characters, relationships, personalities and build up the world.

    If we could get more Ford vehicles, and movies still set in the past, I'd love to see Ironhide look something like this:

    Dodge vehicles. For some reason. I think bay doesn’t like them. They are never included in the TF films. A Dodge Challenger Demon would be awesome.

    To be fair, a big part of it is also if the Car co themselves are up for it.

    I'd like to see at least one transformer with a decent amount of screen time pick a dirt common car to an area and stick with the form the entire movie. I'd also like to hear at least one convoy attracting too much attention comment but that's probably asking too much...

    I'd like to see Tesla get involved. They seem like a natural fit with Transformers.

    Otherwise, normal everyday cars are a bit boring. I'm fine with using the exotic supercars, they're more interesting to watch.

    Just make sure whoever lets their cars be in the movie will also let their cars be made into toys. It's beyond irritating when Audi, or Ferrari, or others I can't think of but I know balked at toys, say "Sure! We'd love our car to be featured in your billion-dollar film!" and then say "No thanks" to also being in the accompanying toyline.

    I wish the reboots would reduce the number of supercars because in my opinion, cars like the Concept Corvette and the Lamborghini Aventador serve no purpose beyond;
    1. Eye candy for automophiles
    2. Product placement for stuff most moviegoers can’t afford anyway (or in Sideswipe’s case, isn’t even available to the public)
    3. Tax cuts for Michael Bay to claim the cars for himself
    4. Excessively and unnecessarily increasing the movie’s budget when the money could’ve gone into hiring better staff or better CGI
