** The newly added Vigilante. The stupid thing is the WritingAroundTrademarks love child of the [[Film/{{Batman}} 1989 Batmobile]] and [[Film/BatmanBegins the Tumbler]] armed with machine guns and missiles. The car is powerful enough to send vehicles flying by running into them and it has a stupidly powerful rocket engine that recharges almost instantly and can blow cars away just by activating. However, the car ''isn't'' inherently bulletproof, thus the cops and anyone else can make short work of you, there is no horn, thus hitting the horn will trigger the rocket engine and the rocket engine is so powerful that, if you're not careful, could send you flying halfway across the city and into the ocean!

* ''Smuggler's Run'': Released August 2017. In this update, players can buy their own aircraft hangar and customize certain aircraft within it, including some older Pegasus-only aircraft. Additionally, the hangar is also the place to help Ron Jakowski smuggle contraband around the state of San Andreas, in a manner similar to special cargo in the ''Further Adventures in Finance and Felony'' update.

Some of the new aircraft have the ability to [[DeathFromAbove drop bombs]], while others can deploy flares to get homing missiles off their tail (the humble FlareGun was buffed to also have this effect). Additionally, the hangar is also the place to help Ron Jakowski smuggle contraband around the state of San Andreas, in a manner similar to special cargo in the ''Further Adventures in Finance and Felony'' update.

** ContinuitySnarl: Owing to ''GTA Online'''s non-linear progression. Agent 14 doesn't give a definitive answer as to whether he and the player already met (the player may have bought a bunker before ever doing any heists) and the player can still do contact missions and the Series A heist for Trevor despite him "going Vinewood".

** With the addition of Sercuroserv CEOs its far from uncommon to see people using their Ceo abilities to call in Buzzard attack helicopters, and then using them run various errands faster.

* TimeSkip: The recent ''Gunrunner'' and ''Smuggler's Run'' DLCs seem to take place after the events of the single player game. On one gunrunning mission, Agent 14 mentions that it is now 2017. And on the ''Smuggler's Run'' introduction, Ron states that Trevor had gone "Vinewood" on him and left the business to him to run.

** With every title update GTA Online's setting and story descend into [[AnachronismStew anachronism]] with more modern vehicles and weapons being released and characters discussing/referencing contemporary issues/events [[note]] in one MOC mission, Agent 14 explicitly mentions that 'it's 2017' [[/note]]; either that, or as some fans suggest, GTA Online's timeline moves with the real world while GTA V's timeline is stuck in 2013.

Despite that, many content updates contain cars based on ones that appeared after that (such as the Vapid FMJ which is heavily based on the 2017 Ford GT), current to the real-life present.
