All,

What good is having a car blueprint with no upgrade on it?

Is it just good to get a vehicle in your garage? Anything else?

Thx

Yes, it’s needed in the game as, if the players take all the six designs that allow to upgrade a part, there would be no designs left to take a car from the test track.

That's it... It's also a way to not spend an upgraded design to get a car of that color

So do these typically get taken in a game or do these non upgradable cars designs just sit there?

Thx

They get taken if someone wants that colour of car. Obviously they are strictly worse than ones with upgrades of the same car colour, but you need to spend some plans on picking up cars, so if you want a certain colour of car, it doesn't matter to you whether the plan has an upgrade or not. Also remember the four rightmost plans give bonuses when you take them.

Just to be clear..and I think you meant this...

You cannot use an upgraded design (flipped design) to get a car. You can however use a design that is upgradeable...aka before it is flipped.

yes, that's correct... I was referring to the tile that can be upgraded, so if you have one tile with no part to upgrade and another that can be upgraded, you use the non-upgradable one to get a car into your garage, saving the upgradable tile to perform an upgrade
