What’s your reasoning for not doing so? (asking genuinely, i’m curious)


#60

Well, your audience is primarily people posting and reading the forums here; it makes no sense to take your stuff to Instagram in that regard. I’m also not entirely sure what more could be gained from doing so either, it doesn’t strike me as the sort of audience that would be interested in Automation cars in general.

On a more personal note, as a general rule I despise most forms of social media like Instagram, to the point that if anyone says “oh I posted this or that to my Instagram”, I pretty much tune out.


#61

The page there would be just a little extra for those who use Instagram, so I wouldn’t make an announcement here on the forums about a new post on instagram. But thanks for your feedback!


#62

That makes sense. I often found myself posting pictures of models I found on my personal Instagram, where friends and family could see it. So I have gained an audience there.

And…

I never announce this anyways.

It’s certainly interesting to hear others perspective :smile:

EDIT: I won’t hijack this thread, Corsica don’t worry haha


#63

Great magazine ads, going through this thread is like reading car ads. Looking forward to seeing more of your work at the auto show

Corsica Vienna (Gen. 2)

from 2013-present

NOTE: This design is a few months old, and doesn’t fully show my designing ability right now. That goes for both the exterior design and the engines. also this post is rushed because i hate this car


2013, a big year for Corsica’s sales department, since they managed to update two of their best selling models that weren’t the Cheetah; the Vienna sedan and the Yosemite money printer.

Like the last one, this generation is still RWD. There’s nothing else interesting about this thing.

From 2013 to 2018, the Phase 1 model could be optioned with either a 3.0 or a 3.5 liter V6. The standard transmission type was a 7-speed Dual Clutch, because manuals aren’t cool I guess.

At the 2018 LA Auto Show, this automobile received a facelift.

QUICK RUNDOWN OF THE CHANGES: Some new bumpers, a different tailgate and new engines. The 3.0 was gotten rid of and instead a brand-new 3.5 V6 took its place, a 5.0 V8 became the new range-topper. If you don’t count the CR.

The second Vienna CR has a 6.0 liter V8, generating 560 horsepower and managing a 0-62 mph time of 4 seconds. For the design, it has a spoiler in the back.

2019 Sisten Triton


Now available for Europe and Asia, the Sisten Triton marks the beginning of a brand new segment in the vehicle market: This car has been designed to be able to be converted from an all-electric city car to a snowplower or a forklift in a matter of minutes.

Behind the front wheels are two connector adapters, where either a snowplow attachment or forklift equipment can be attached to.


With snowplow attached.

When it comes to plowing snow, lack of power isn’t a problem, as the Triton can go in speeds excess of 130km/h. This speed does not affect the fuel economy; the average US MPG is 71. When going on the highway, the recorded fuel consumption figures are 101 MPG traveling at 70km/h.



With forklift equipment attached.

The Sisten Triton will be made available to certain government offices throughout Europe in February 2019 and will start rolling out to customers from there.


Optional Extras


2019 Sisten Triton, starting from $8000


#66

Do the high pressure hydraulics required to operate the Forklift attachment come with the car or are they somehow integrated in the attachment itself?


#67

uh

They come with the car, but they need to be activated…


#68

Seems like an unnecessary amount of additional weight for city and snow mode.


#69

could say they are standard equiment, but need installation prior to use


#70

Yes, that’s the answer

Lore Restart (Mostly)

Yes, I’m restarting most of the car design lore. Exactly 100 days after I created this thread. Sorry.




It’s 1978. You, the CEO of America’s second (or third, fourth etc. please don’t get angry over this) biggest car manufacturer, the Sisten Motoring Corporation, have decided to put on your crisis suit. People have flocked over to Japanese imports after the fuel crisis and as such, nobody is buying Sistens or Taluvecs anymore. Well, aside from grandpa whose back hurts.

But you’re not surrendering yet. No, you call in a secret meeting between all the big heads at SiMoCo to figure out the solution to the two main problems: 1. Young people aren’t buying your cars, and 2. Pretty much no one is buying your cars.

The solution? Create a new brand that would attract those youngsters and would offer compact models with good mileage to rival the imports. A new brand, called Corsica.


Designed by Sisten-veteran John B. Delaman, it was his last design before he retired in late 1982. The Cheetah was first presented at the 1981 North American International Auto Show, in a booth completely separated from Sisten and Taluvec.

Two models were shown at the show, the Sport 3.0 V6 and the Supersport 4.5 V8. After the positive reception, models started rolling out to dealerships in mid-1981.

The Gen. 1 Cheetah features all-round independent suspension and the Rear Drive System© (Sistens name for RWD they used in the 70’s and 80’s, for no apparent reason).

The V6 with cutting-edge Fuel Injection was a modified version of the SC 30C679, previously used in entry-level Taluvecs. When new, it produced 171 horsepower and 218 torques. But the crowd-pleaser was obviously the Supersport V8, a 4.5 liter… beast… that produced 200 horsepower and 271 Nm of torque. However, it would not be the range-topper forever.

In 1985, Corsica launched the very first CR model, it standing for Corsica Racing. To make the CR, a fat TURBO was attached to the V8, increasing the horsepower rating to 252 and making 339 torques more, allowing the 0-100km/h speed to jump from 7.4 to 6.4 seconds.

A mild spoiler was fitted and the rear bumper received two extra exhaust pipes. Because it was originally planned to be in limited-production only, just one color was available. The exclusive blue would become a standard for all CR models, even when later models could be optioned with other colors.

As mentioned two sentences ago, the CR was originally meant to be in limited-production only. After the original 200 cars were built however, Corsica r̶e̶a̶l̶i̶z̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶y̶ ̶h̶a̶d̶ ̶s̶o̶m̶e̶ ̶m̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶b̶l̶u̶e̶ ̶p̶a̶i̶n̶t̶ ̶l̶e̶f̶t̶ ̶o̶v̶e̶r̶ decided to build 100 more to give to the best performing dealerships in the US.

With just 300 units built, it is currently the most sought after CR. However, it isn’t the rarest original Cheetah model.

In celebration of Sisten’s 80th anniversary in 1986, SMG decided to take a model from each of the brands lineups and dress them up in some fancy paint. For Sisten, it was the Sunburst hatch, Taluvec chose the Callahan TTS full-size sedan and Corsica went with the Cheetah.

To make the Corsica Cheetah “80th Anniversary Edition”, they took a fully-loaded V8 Supersport from the factory, painted them in gold and then put some stickers on them. 10 of the cars went to former executives and noteworthy employees, the other 70 went to very select dealers. One car burnt down in a dealership fire and another was crashed a year after it was sold.

For Corsica, their next model skipped 1982 and came out in '83; the Oakwood full-size sedan. But, for 1984, Corsica followed up on their promise to make fuel-efficient vehicles…

Those are huge power numbers for 1981! GM needed 3.4L and DOHC to hit 200 hp from a V6… ten years after this one!


#73

“Always 10 years ahead of GM” has actually been the tagline for Corsica since 1981.

that was a lie


#74

And anyway. We know those “Real People Not Actors” ads from Chevy.

The post-reboot original Cheetah lives up to its name; from the front it reminds me of a Sierra RS Cosworth or Alpine A310, with those quad sealed-beam headlights and low-mounted grille.

Woah mama, it’s a news report from 1985!


Sisten, Corsica warehouse robbed in East Detroit

February 6, 1985

On the evening of the 4th of February, 6 individuals broke into the Sisten Motoring Corporation in East Detroit, stealing nine (9) shipping containers. The containers were loaded up earlier in the day with steering wheels and foot pedals.

Police were first notified of the crime the following morning and a quick lead was found in the security cam footage, showing the burglars loading the containers onto three trucks. A later search found that all of the trucks were registered in Canada. The Daily Motors have contacted Canada and their automotive business about the burglary and we will give an update when we hear back.

The damage has been rated at approximately $800.
