Belgium, Early January 2005, Rosker headquarters conference room

Two Rosker Warrior project managers enter the conference room with a CF card and a laptop. One of them sets down the laptop, the other inserts the CF card.
Infront of them sits CEO of Rosker Motors.

PM1: ‘‘Boss, the designs are in’’
RMB: ‘‘Excellent, how many did we get?’’
PM2: ‘‘Eight’’
RMB: '‘Alright, show ‘em!’’

@Rise_Comics

PM1: ‘‘First, we have the Rosker Warrior SS from RC Designs.’’

RMB: ‘‘Not sure about this first one, it’s kind of oversized design elements aren’t to my liking, such as the oversized badges and rear lights, I mean I like how proudly this design shows off our company badge, but this is a bit much and isn’t the most detailed or pleasant design to look at either. Although, it does look sort of like a European muscle car, mostly in the rear, but an outdated one at that. Next design, please.’’

@Mikonp7

PM1: ‘‘Next off we have the Rosker Warrior by Propeller.’’

RMB: ‘‘I already like the front! I believe this could be the new face of the Warr… hmmmm, the rear doesn’t looks as good as the front, looks a but squashed, and why is it a convertible? sigh Well, I like the body shape a lot, but shame it’s a convertible. Apart from the lackluster rear, I really like the rest of it. You know what, add it to the acceptable design pile, I imagine there will be some to dispute over.’’

PM2: ‘‘Noted.’’

@randomtuner

PM1: ‘‘Now we have the Rosker Warrior EJ from RT Designs.’’

RMB: ‘‘This looks… kinda cool, similar to the original, but still quite modern, that said, it’s not a very high quality design, and is a tad bland, also looks a bit too American overall, the rear lights are nice however. It’s not terrible, but I’m willing to bet that there are better choices coming up NEXT!’’

PM1: ‘‘By the way, we found this one on the floor, not actually sent to our system, guess the studio didn’t have high hopes for their design.’’

@mart1n2005

PM1: ‘‘Okayyyy, it’s the Rosker Warrior M by M2 Designs up next.’’

RMB: ''What’s this? An Economy car concept?
PM2: ‘‘What!?’’
PM2 looking at the screen
PM2: ‘‘No, no, it’s a Rosker Warrior concept.’’
RMB: ‘‘Well, you could have fooled me, it’s not the worst looking thing, but it looks a bit inappropriate as a muscle car, I don’t have much to say, it has some quite interesting styling, such as the grille design, but I can’t imagine it being a Warrior. Next!’’

@Ludvig

PM1: ‘‘Next is the Rosker Warrior HUH by Studio HUH.’’

RMB: ‘‘Huh, is this a grandtourer? Seems kinda out of place, but this also has similarities to the original in the front at least. Although, it’s not a very pretty front, just doesn’t mix well, this body and that front. Not a fan of this, looking over it’s quite bare, but the rear diffuser is pretty cool, that’s something. Next.’’

@Rk38

PM2: ‘‘I think you’ll like this one boss man…’’
PM1: ‘‘Here is the Rosker Warrior Rk from Beneventi.’’

RMB: ‘‘Hmmm, yes, yes I like this one. Seems to be the most forward thinking design up to this point. Impressive muscular looks, with these thickened up sides. The front design isn’t very… us, but it works very well… lord almighty, have you seen the front from the side? That is some quirky styling right there, don’t know what those Beneventi guys were thinking. But overall I really like the front design, the very cool side gills and the rear is alright too. Just don’t look at the front from the side. Add it to the acceptable pile.’’

PM2: ‘‘Will do.’’

@Sky-High

PM1: ‘‘Errrr, this is the Rosker Warrior SH by SH Desings.’’

RMB: ‘‘Okay… I like this.’’
PM2: ‘‘Really? I thought that you would be put off by it’s super car bod…’’
RMB: ‘‘Of course I am, however, it’s still quite nice, quite simple but effective, it’s the most striking car I’ve seen today, although the rear is quite outdated and this body design is still a no go. An interesting idea, supercar shape, with muscle car features, but this is not quite what I want to see. Please, show me the next design.’’

@titleguy1

PM1: ‘‘We have reached the last design, here is the Rosker Warrior LV by Lavelle Studios.’’

RMB: ''Wow, this is something, it is very similar to the original, but in a much newer and sexier form. Looks great from every angle, the front, sides and rear. Is it swedish by any chance?
PM2: ‘‘Not that I am aware of, sir.’’
RMB: ''Doesn’t matter, this a great design, I could only nitpick some small things, maybe the tailamps aren’t to my taste, but those we could iron out on the production model, if we get the public interested in the car with the concept first. Add it to the acceptable pile.

PM2: ‘‘Sure…’’

RMB: ‘‘What do we have in the acceptable pile?’’
PM2: ‘‘The Warrior by Propeller, Beneventi and Lavelle Studios.’’
RMB: ‘‘All of them have something special about them, but we have to go with the best overall package.’’
PM1: ‘‘Which is…?’’
RMB: ‘‘Well, the Propeller one has, in my mind, the most pleasing shape and most fitting front for the Warrior and our brand as a whole, however the Beneventi is the most likely to grab the public’s attention, with it being the most advanced and forward thinking design, but it could go either way with the public, they may love it or hate it. And then there’s the one by Lavelle Studios, which seems to be the best package out of them all. A front fitting for a Warrior in the modern era, has all round good looks and is the most well rounded of the designs.’’

PM1: ‘‘The LV it is.’’
PM2: ''Can we get this concept out in time for this years Geneva Motor show?
PM1: ‘‘When’s that?’’
PM2: ‘‘Next month.’’
PM1: ‘‘Oh dear.’’

Congratulations @titleguy1 ! Your design has been accepted by Rosker as the new face of the Warrior!
Now we have to see if the public loves it and if it makes it to production.

CSC 15 - Outta Time



Prompt

1979 - Rigore Automotive has been one of America’s premier manufacturers of sporty vehicles since its conception as a car company in 1965. However, the two oil crisis slumps from 1972 and 1979 have left the company’s history in question. Given that their lineup consisted primarily of sports saloons and sports cars, the fate of the company seemed imminent. However, following the 1979 Oil Crisis, Rigore knew that action had to be taken in order to progress the company to new frontiers. No, they weren’t going to begin creating completely European style cars that had lost American soul, but since the birth of the company a blend of American and European design ideals were at work. How could the company re-invigorate themselves for the 1980’s, a decade that they hoped would be of prosperity and technological growth - without even knowing if either would end up being the reality?

The Angeles was the first car to be part of Rigore’s “New Era” cars, a plan which was designed to save the company from potential ruin - after all, being an American company in a world in which American ideals weren’t going to fly was going to be difficult. In 1979, development began for a new Angeles - and it had to be developed quick. The design would have to be an odd balance of fresh and new, with European influence, yet distinctly American. It must follow American design laws for headlamps and such, but more importantly it had to appeal to an international crowd for Rigore sold vehicles in almost all 7 continents. How would this small American company pull this off? Well, this was a goal that designers had to figure out - which is where you guys come in.

Rigore’s been engineering this car for a pretty long time, so the internals are nothing to worry about. We’ve been worrying about this for a while!

This round will be strictly based off of design. Do not worry about making a good car, just an attractive one.

Here are some real-life vehicle references that you may want to look at from 1980 onwards.

Entries are open. The deadline for the competition is September 8th at 21:00 EST.


#429

Just a note: The headlights on the Holden Commodore in your references would not be legal in the U.S. for the early '80s. The first “european” headlamps used on a U.S. model was on the MY1984 Lincoln Continental Mark VII.


#430

Noted! The Holden is just being used as a general reference for me regardless.

Important to note that I now have entries open until September 8th!


#431

Is there a Rigore Automotive badge available for use on the models?
