    I believe someone previously mentioned a dev stated this update was coming in November at the earliest. Hold your horses there, pardner.

    This is a little far stretched but...

    "Take me down to the paradise city" was written on the way from a show in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    Lucid motors and Tesla both have HQ's in California.

    Could it be a high end electric sedan?




    Could be a new West Coast USA based brand? Or since WCUSA is based on SF, maybe it's a hint that the map is getting some updates.

    Looking at the teaser again, I get some Fisker Karma vibes from the haunches.

    I did specify passenger cars, but I know a great many people who use pickups as daily drivers and/or family cars, so, y'know, fair enough :)

    I agree that one of the things we need the most among the vehicles is more unique places of origin, but I don't strictly want it from this car. It looks cool, but all modern vehicles tend to be rather... by the books? Rather than demonstrating the unique history and quirkiness of a particular nationality, late-model sports sedans from Germany, Sweden, and South Korea would all be largely identical. Roll the clock back 30-50 years, and that may not be the case.

    Ooops! I went solely based on chronology for my answer to your Roamer argument! Mea culpa! :)
    I don't strictly want the new car to be Swedish or South Korean either, because it already looks large and muscular enough for me to think that it is American! As much as automotive national schools have approached one another over the last 2-3 decades, there are still some unique elements on each one, after all! ;)
    Speaking of... Wouldn't a 60s large German barge with a 7-liter V8 be amazing in BeamNG? I know it's the Update Speculation Thread in here, but still, I can't help but express my idea! :p

    another factor i've noticed is that euro cars are much more expensive than their USDM (american & japanese) counterparts. this opens up room for an expensive, modern american car but if we go based on price patterns, this car is more likely to be euro due to the expensive styling and large sedan size. there are more modern euro cars than usdm which opens up a gap for this car to slip into but it would have just as much chance of being euro due to the similarity ins size with cars like the BMW 7 series, audi a8, mercedes s class & maserati quatraporte.

    Ferrari wasn't "bought by FIAT back in the '60s", it just joined the group in a 50/50 joint-venture. FIAT only gained full control over Ferrari in 1988.

    As for the Dino, Ferrari simply needed to share the engine for homologation purposes.
    It's a mainstream/mass-market manufacturer, but not the "cheapest" by any means.

    Plus, keep in mind that FIAT was an automotive giant back in the '60s, more or less in the same position as the VAG group today.

    Sorry for not mentioning this in the previous post, but I meant "manufacturer that cuts the most corners from the original design", i.e. FCA/Stellantis.

    What if the car was an upmarket Korean sports sedan? Like if the Kia Stinger and the Hyundai Equus had a baby?

    Now that I think about it, we don't have any Asian car makers outside of Japan. I would really like to see a Korean car. Or a cheap Chinese car that is new, but horribly unsafe.

    The first car it reminded me of when I saw it is one that nobody has even mentioned yet

    i'd be thinking of something similar to a genesis g80 with rear wheel steering, it would be interesting to see that on a car other than the pessima

    Yes it makes me wonder if it is a Korean car also, OR a USA new age V8 while we can make v8s.

    I wonder what new thing this will bring. as most cars have something new. They all bring something new to beam.

    Other then the mk 2 pessima that is nice as bland in a good way..

    SO this may bring hybrid systems to the game. SO maybe there will be a massive range of Diesels petrols With and without hybrid systems. And i hope a lovely v8..

    While we here i will love a v10 or V12 in it :p


    As for where its from i dont wanna sound bad. But i dont want it to be from japan as we have those.
    USA maybe maybe not, BUT we dont have a new car from The states ( newest is like 2005 )


    WHILE korea is starting to make RWD with v6/v8s. I mean damm the Korean cars of the 80s some 90s where horrid ( and i love them )

    What else can i think of, I was wondering if this car will have some kinda LPG system. As we dont have a car on that yet. but LPG is dyeing out. and it was common in aussie cars in the 80s/90s so nah.

    SO seeing how there is often other body styles or versions. How about a shooting brake ( wagon meets SUV that also a hatch )

    OFF TOPIC kinda.

    I think if we got for the car after this a pree war car. First all steel era. 1935 ish era will be great. Of Corse i will go stock.
    But for hot rod fans some tune parts.


    AND a terrible 3rd world car/start up car. Like TATA or old Hyundai or some of 1000s of chinese car brands pre 2010 ..


    AS normal sorry for spelling mistakes. ( was up way to long ) Due to working of this W124 where a found some tree bark that looked like a spanner.


    ANYWAY before i go on to much,

    I know what ever ya do devs i will love it,


    And for the love of god thank you thank you its NOT a suv. I know we need one in beam one day.

    BUT a sedan all the yes :)

    the teaser image had a poorly drawn sketch of an exhaust pipe and fumes, as well as a 3d modeled front grille- with how electric design is trying to eliminate or replace the grille with increasingly unique and creative bodywork, which we saw somewhat on the EV Vivace, id be very surprised to see an EV in Beam with all of the hallmarks of an ICE design.
