New Body style Suggestions


#41

One thing I’d like to see is a Ford SVT Raptor styled body. We have some older trucks, and a modern SUV, but no modern truck bodies.

It could EASILY cover just about any full-size pickup truck imaginable with some morphing options.

PS: Used the search function before looking and found nothing similar, so. My apologies if it’s been asked somewhere before.


#42

I haven’t seen a full-size van like a GMC Savanna. I definitely would like to have a couple of those from different time periods. A version with windows and one without for cargo.


#43

Stupid as it may sound, something like the first-generation Honda Insight wouldn’t be bad. Something highly aerodynamic with wheel-skirts on the rear wheels. Obviously, I know it won’t be a hybrid, but, call me weird if you like, I kinda like that design.


#44

I’d like to see a mid- to late-'60s American full-size car (Impala, Galaxie, etc.) family (i.e. 2- and 4-door sedans, 2- and 4-door hardtops, convertible and wagon). Ditto some '80s American big boxes (e.g. GM B- and C-bodies, Ford Panther and Chrysler R-body), and some 2-door sedan and 2- and 4-door “pillarless” hardtop styles for the '70s not-an-LTD. Oh, and a '70s personal luxury coupe (e.g. Thunderbird, Toronado, Cordoba, etc.), preferably with and without a vinyl top! :smiley:

I could be here for a while with Body styles, but I’ll just mention one that’s been on my mind for a long while.

First, @CNSpots1 - I’d love a more modern truck body myself. :smiley: , but we’ll see as always.

I know such examples are to put it lightly rare to have a modern front engine racing prototype (apart from the Nismo GTR LMP1), with such exceptions being the Panoz models, but even a bit further back in time, the Ford Mustang GTP.

I suppose to be specific, if someone could, make a ‘generic’ template based around said car.

but it’s just a suggestion and nothing more. My two cents for what it’s worth.


#46

Now that longitudinal rear engine is an option, I was thinking it would be fun to have the Volkswagen Type 2 available in 1950, especially since the newly added truck in 1950 can’t use it (with good reason given its design).

I’m also interested in a tiny car for 1960, similar to the new 1950 one. Having one for 1960 would be nice since that’s when the low octane unleaded becomes available. I was thinking maybe a Fiat 500 or 600. The Syrena (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FSO_Syrena) was a car actually designed to run on low octane. Most any small car should be fine though.

Wow, you’re from Seattle and you know about polish car from communist times? Damn, you must be some kind of car ubergeek.

lol - Thanks, but I only know about it from an inquiry I made. Kubboz mentioned it a while ago when I was asking about cars that used low octane unleaded, since I was curious. Janekk mentioned the FSO Warszawa, and from there Wikipedia showed me the Russian Podeba. It was interesting stuff to read about, but I would have liked to learn more.

A Porsche 911 991 body.

Fiat 600 Multipla. More than 240.000 RR layout MPV built since 1956 until 1967

Ford Sierra mk1 - all the space-age aerodynamics for the otherwise-still-lacking 80’s body styles :slight_smile:
Also the Peugeot 405 and/or French combi-coupes (5-doors) such as Citroen BX or Renault 21 would be nice.

There is already a mid-size blob. I would love to see a compact executive blob as well, though. Although the 80’s cars were mainly boxy and rectangular, some were aerodynamic blobs as well (both the Opel Omega and the Audi B3 reached a drag coefficient of 0.29).


#54

For a 1980s compact executive, Audi 80 B3 would be a pretty good source. Or perhaps MB 190.

Now that I think of it, an 80s MB would be a good fit for Automation, since it’s quite different from the 80s bodies currently in game, yet generic enough to allow designs where the source material is unrecognizable. I might take it as my next project when I’ve finished the 4 cars I’m working on at the moment.

Good call. 1980’s Mercedes-Benz cars are fine pieces of engineering. :slight_smile:


#56

We could certainly use a few 90’s, 00’s, and 10’s compact sedans (not hatchbacks). Could also use some 40’s coupes and maybe another 50’s big sedan, more along the idea of the '57 Chevy. Something with the big fins common to the American cars of that era.


#57

I would really love to have properly new stuff in the game, since it’s been a while since the last new stuff was added.

Things like a very modern 2015 hatchback, like a Ford Fiesta or Citroen DS3, and compact-sporty SUVs, like the LR Evoque or Porsche Macan.


#58

More 2010s cars are probably needed. After all, cars from this decade are boxier with sharper lines than 2000s cars.
