    Not sure if I'll find the right body, but might try.

    I'm still much more focused on production cars.

    Modern SUV inspired by the Stelvio?

    I'm making a 90s Italian executive sedan now. Should I go for an FWD version with a midrange V6, or an AWD Civetta V8-engined sporty one?

    FWD V6 sounds good

    Why?

    I think I'm gonna go V8, the more oddball cars seem to be more popular.

    Reminds me of that one time Pininfarina designed a sedan that had Ferrari badges.

    I'm thinking about possibly doing another car pack later. Any ideas?

    Maybe some 80s/90s JDM cars?

    Maybe, but they've never moved me that much.

    I was also thinking about family cars, middle-class cars and supercars through the years.

    Maybe some more 50s/60s cars from any country? (As in using the available brands given and a few fictional brands)

    Maybe, but all things considered, I think I'm not gonna do packs. It takes loads of time, with my loosely estimated time on the Italian one around 6-10 hours and counting.

    I can accept that, you do you.

    Anyways, is it possible for you to do some sort of 70s econobox in the future?

    Maybe.

    Although the 50s and 60s aren't a bad era - you've got early post-war unibody cars, the 50s cars of the people (500, 2CV, Mini, Trabant, etc.), late 50s US styling excesses, the fall of small luxury makers (Facel-Vega, Gordon-Keeble, Studebaker, etc.), slowly maturing off-roaders (Jeep, Land Rover, GAZ, Land Cruiser), rise of the supercar (Lamborghini, Ferrari) and personal luxury/sports (Spitfire, Capri, Thunderbird, Corvette, etc.), sharply-styled middle-of-the-road sedans (GM B-Body, Rover P6, Datsun 510) and rising muscle cars (SS, R/T, GTO).
    --- Post updated ---
    However, I'd be more partial to a 2000s/2010s car pack - we'd have stuff from legacy 50s and 60s designs to high-end twin-turbo luxury cars, from spartan microcars to high-end heavy-duty trucks, from American to Chinese cars, there could be the decline of the traditional midrange fullsize sedan, the compact MPV, ultra-luxury or hypercar boom, the rise of the crossover or retro car, etc.

    Working on a car based on 2000s custom twin-turbo Lambos.

    Should it have a relatively mild tune, a wilder (and laggier) one, an even wilder one or a balls-to-the-wall one?

    I'd say even wilder, in my personal opinion.

    Though we're dealing with 1200+ HP, so when it lags, it does kinda hard.

    But I'll have to test in Beam.

    Also, I'm building a hot hatch based on the Fiat Punto GT Mk1 and VW Golf GTI/VR6 Mk3.

    Should I build an NA ~140 HP car, or a turbocharged ~170 HP one?
