Default Autocars co. ltd. Revival Contest

You have been chosen to create a new model lineup for the Israelian manufacturer Autocars co. ltd. of Haifa.
The lineup should consist of a small(ish) Sportscar (coupe/convertible) and a Truck/SUV (you have to do both an SUV and a Sportscar, just to make the voting a little more interesting ).

Your cars have to be affordable, yet reliable and of high build quality (hmm.. is there such a thing?).

Links about Autocars :

http://www.carinfocus.com/mamar4.htm (Pics of the Sabra/Reliant Sabre)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susita
http://forums.autoweek.com/thr...art=0 (thread at Autoweek forums)

Some inspiration....
The Sussita (Van/Pickup/Estate thing, maybe a new SUV based on this one?):

The Sabra Sport (Sports car):

Good luck , hopefully we'll see some more entries this time (allthough people are still on vacation etc.)


Contest ends on Sunday the 17th

thanx ^_^
since (i think) i'm the only one from israel here, i thought it'll be nice to show that israel had a car industry...although not a great one :\
but i thought it'll be good to bring that car history to here :)

i have an idea: what about dont have the defined amount of entries from one member, but everybody comes up with several ideas and make the contest more open, developing forms, etc ... it would be more interesting and intensive drawing/sketching imo ... so?

I haven't got anything against you doing both or several designs, it's just that the voting might turn into a mess .

We were playing around with the idea of having separate votings for the SUVs and Sports cars (which would mean that you could do both), but I don't think there will be enough entries :(.

Meh... we'll see what happens. I'm off to bed now, 2am here =)

Yeah, I was thinking about that too. Anyone else have any thoughts?
Either we stick with the original rules or you have to do both.

Opinions please
