A Corsica Kei-Car Rumored To Launch At The Tokyo Motor Show

December 1, 2018



The Sisten Rush.

A trademark was filed on November 28th in Japan for a Corsica Apollo, further fueling rumours of a Corsica branded K-car being in the works. The filings were first noticed by the site Corsica Society.

Currently, the Sisten Group, which encompasses Sisten, Taluvec and Corsica, manufacturers just one Kei car, the Sisten Rush (pictured above). The Rush was introduced in 2017 exclusively for the Japanese market and the Corsica version is expected to be the high-end version of the model.

The Corsica version is most likely going to be unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in October.

The 2019 Corsica Cheetah Has Been Spotted Testing

December 10, 2018


After the current, fifth generation Corsica Cheetah was discontinued last Friday, the sixth generation 2019 model was already spotted testing at the Hirochi Raceway.

These spy shots indicate that the Cheetah will indeed be returning to the classic 2+2 layout, after the fifth generation model, introduced in 2012, made a bold move by only being a two seater.





Further spy shots were later taken at a garage.


The 2019 Cheetah will most likely be revealed at the North American International Auto Show in 2019

Corsica Oakwood

from 1983-1986


By 1982, Sisten were developing an all-new sedan for their all-new brand, which would end up being the Solar. However, after numerous troubles and faults experienced when developing the car, Sisten decided to give Corsica a stop-gap model, until the Solar could go on sale.

The accountants quickly figured out that the best option was to rebadge an older model from the range. The car that was eventually rebadged was the Taluvec Gran Callahan. Within just a few months, the car was converted into the Corsica Oakwood, which went on sale at the beginning of 1983.

As the Gran Callahan had been on sale since 1975, the Oakwood was definetly not the most modern car when it came out. The exterior and interior styling were really starting to show their age and the V8 engine under the hood performed worse than most competitors.

Under the bonnet, the Oakwood used a 4.5 liter V8, previously used in the Taluvec Paradiso limousine. This engine is notable and legendary for how terrible it is when applied to a passenger car.

The 24-valve design makes 288hp and 381Nm of Torque, allowing the Oakwood to reach a top speed of 210 km/h. 100 km/h is reached within 7.7 seconds.

However, none of these numbers matter after you’ve read the gas mileage. The Corsica Oakwood 4.5 V8 Premium gets 11.4 MPG (UK).

Inside the car, there’s seating for six and a premium 8-track player came as standard.


Specifications

4.5 V8 SOHC-24
Horsepower: 288 @ 6000 RPM
Torque: 381 Nm @ 4000 RPM
Top speed: 210 km/h
0-62mph: 7.7 seconds
Transmission: 4-speed Automatic
Price: $50000 (adjusted for inflation)

Fantastic design! Love the wheel spat/cover too!


#47

Thanks for liking the design! And to be honest, I added the wheel cover just so it would look more interesting.


#48

How did you add the wheel covers? I’m curious…


#49

Pretty unique design, great job! :smiley:


#50

The main part that goes over the wheel is a variation of one of the wings

and the part that connects the cover to the car is simply a lip fixture


@Mr.Computah Thanks, I appreciate it a lot!

We’d like to wish everybody a very Happy Holidays, from everyone at Corsica!

Corsica C900

from 1992-1998


After the Oakwood was discontinued in 1986, Corsica slowly started working on its successor.

Full development started in 1988 and the final design was frozen the same year. The chosen design was much rounder and more aerodynamic than the old Oakwood, the total coefficient drag went down from 0.57 to 0.39.

The all-new Corsica C900 went into production in 1991 as a 1992 model and lasted until 1998.

The C900 came in two trims: The DX standard model and the SE luxury model. Both versions were RWD and came with a 4-speed Automatic. As with the Oakwood, there were 6 seats on the inside.

The V8 made (when new) 311 hp and 385 Nm of torque. This propelled the C900 from 0-62 mph in just 7 seconds and made it do the 1/4 mile in just 15.4 seconds.

As with the Oakwood, the C900 did not perform incredibly well at fuel economy. The average fuel eco. was 16.7 MPG (UK)

The C900 was made available for fleet service a few months after the normal sales had started. Above is a police spec model.

All in all, the C900 still didn’t perform as well as Corsica had hoped. While old people didn’t want it because it was too fast for them and not comfortable enough, young people didn’t want it because it was a big American luxury sedan.

The fleet services weren’t big fans either, due to there simply being better options out there. In 1998, the last models rolled off the assembly line at the Sisten Hamilton Plant in Georgia.


Specifications

Quadra SPT / 4.6 V8 DOHC-32
Horsepower: 311 @ 6700 RPM
Torque: 385 Nm @ 4300 RPM
Top speed: 246 km/h
0-62mph: 7 seconds
Transmission: 4-speed Automatic
Price: $40000 - $45000 (adjusted for inflation)

Corsica Vienna (Gen. 1)

from 2005-2013


In the 1990’s, Corsica was moving more towards being a true mass-market brand, with the launch of such models as the Yosemite SUV in 1993, the C900 full-size sedan in 1992 and even the Blitz coupe in 1995.

The youth performance part of Corsica was still being kept alive by the Cheetah and Zeta, but they were both constantly being overshadowed in sales figures by other models.

In 1998, Corsica launched their “Sport 2000” in-house project. The focus of Sport 2000 was to turn Corsica back in to the sports-oriented brand back to what it once was. One of the first cars to come of this project was the Vienna sedan, launched in 2005.

For 2005, the Vienna came with a single 3.5 liter V6, making 266 horsepower and 298 Nm of torque. All Viennas were Rear-Wheel Drive and all of them came with a 6-speed manual as standard, automatic transmissions were available to choose.

In 2007, two brand new engines were added to the line-up. The new Sport Plus trim came with a 3.7 V6, making 325 horsepower and 361 Nm of torque. Starting with the 2009 model year, the 3.7 completely replaced the 3.5 in the lineup.

The second new engine was the 4.0 V8, available in the new Supersport trim line. The V8 generated 402 horsepower and 413 Nm of torque, making it go from 0-62 MPH in 5.7 seconds.

The Vienna CR was brought to the market in 2010. Underneath the bonnet was the SC Super II 5.6 V8, which made 512 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. Some other changes included a rear spoiler, a new differential and an upgraded suspension setup.

The first generation Vienna was discontinued from the market in 2013. A month later, the second generation model was announced.

Update Time

  1. Starting next week, I’m gonna start updating older posts for Corsica models to fit them in line more with the design I’m trying to go for.
    The updated posts will include new (and more) pictures, updated specs and maybe even some updated designs. When an entry is updated, I’ll probably notify that with a new post indicating the change.

  1. I’ve been thinking about creating an Instagram page for Corsica, but I’m not sure whether anyone would care. So, please vote on whether you’d like to see an Instagram page for Corsica or not. There’s also a third option for those who aren’t interested.

A page for Corsica on Instagram?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Don’t Care

I suggest the Instagram for sure. I’ve only got about 14 followers for Hokuto but it’s still fun!


#58

I just don’t get why you’d start an Instagram page for your designs, or anyone else for that matter.


#59

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!
