BMW 2002 Turbo Panel Wagon Concept | Photoshop Chop by Sebastian Motsch (2016)

BMW 2002 Turbo Panel Wagon with BBS E50

In case you’re not a friend of the Saharabeige BMW 2002 Turbo Panel Wagon, here is a different version for you: medium grey with M-colored turbo stripes. Instead of placing them on the usual location on the front fender, I opted to put it on the door. This creates a nice mirror-like effect with the A-pillar, which is almost shaped like an arrowhead pointing in the direction of travel. Next up will be an El Camino style pick-up. Stay tuned!

BMW 2002 Turbo Panel Wagon

Creating the BMW 2002 Touring was so much fun that I decided to run with the idea and turn it into a panel wagon. I kept the shortened front doors to maximize cargo space in the spacious rear compartment. Having done that I noticed that the half of the vehicle looked rather bland. 2002 Turbo fender flares and BBS E50 center-lock wheels help tremendously to remedy this situation. Gotta haul those BMW Motorsport parts in style!

PS: Wait for the next iteration if you don’t like the period-correct Saharabeige (oo6) of this version. ūüėČ

BMW 2002 4-Door Touring Concept | Photoshop Chop by Sebastian Motsch (2016)

BMW 2002 Touring 4-door

Waking up to the news that Paul Rosche (aka Nocken Paule) passed away yesterday inspired me to finish a long-overdue project: the BMW 2002 4-door Touring.

Why would somebody want to do that? Well, a friend of mine thought about converting a 1:24 scale model of a BMW 02-series to a station wagen. He challenged me to design such a car with Photoshop, so he could use the picture as a reference for the build. Challenge accepted… but as always, it took (a lot) longer than expected. We agreed to leave the wheelbase as is, which made it very difficult to get the proportions right. Yes, the front doors are shortened and the rear doors are a little too short and only suitable for children – but the 02-series was never known to have much space for grown-ups.  I wanted to keep the pop-out windows in the rear, even though it might only available at extra cost by ticking the right box on the order sheet. ūüėČ

Rest in peace, Mr. Rosche. May one of your brilliantly designed engines live in the engine bay of this vehicle – should anyone ever build it in 1:1 scale.

Please let me know if you like the design and if you’re interested to see the other versions I cooked-up, based on the same original picture. Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Volkswagen New Beetle BAJA Concept

Alongside the Mustang BAJA concept, I worked on a BAJA-style vehicle based on the Volkswagen New Beetle. This vehicle was not only inspired by BAJA racers, but also by the beach buggies based on vintage Beetle chassis. I used the underpinnings from the Hummer HX concept car and modified it to fit under the New Beetle body. It’s not as a agressive as the Mustang BAJA I posted last week, but then – have you ever seen an agressive looking New Beetle? That’s downright impossible, lol.

Ford Mustang BAJA Concept | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2012)

Ford Mustang BAJA Concept

For quite a long time I’ve been fiddling with the idea of creating a BAJA-spec truck. Not a regular truck, though. I wanted to start with a regular road car. Eventually I decided to start with a 2005 Ford Mustang convertible as a base. A BAJA-style Nissan Frontier donated the running gear and the rear part of the tube frame including the spare wheel carrier. The body of the Mustang has been modified extensively in order to fit the tube frame, suspension and massive tires. Looks quite mean now, doesn’t it?

Volkswagen New Beetle CGT | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2010)

Volkswagen New Beetle CGT Concept

After a couple of years fiddling around with this picture, I decided to call it a day and get done with it. The picture is by no means perfect, but you get the idea. The inspiration was a discussion among friends about the addition of Porsche parts to classic Beetles. Why shouldn’t somebody try this with the New Beetle? This would, of course, be limited to body parts mostly, as the layout of the drivetrain is quite different these days. So I set to work and tried to fit the body panels from the Porsche Carrera GT to the New Beetle. It did look horrible, to be honest. So, a top chop was in order to get the proportions at least halfway right. I’m not 100% satisfied with the result, but decided to post it here anyways. So what are your thoughts on that conversion? Please leave feedback below, thank you.

The Renault Zoé Concept inspired me to modify it into a version resembling the Mk1 Renault 5 Turbo.

Chevrolet Nomad Concept Racecar | photoshop cby Sebastian Motsch (2009)

Chevrolet Nomad Racecar Concept

Relatively small and nimble, with a beefy V8 engine. Why should the Chevrolet Nomad Concept not become a racecar? I imagine it to be quite a lot of fun drive. Many pieces from other cars have been added to this otherwise clean design. Lowered and with uniball joints all around it should go around corners like the looks suggest. There is no idea for a livery as of now.

Italdesign Karmann Asso di Picche Concept | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2011)

Audi Italdesign Asso di Picche Concept

The full name of this concept car is Italdesign Karmann Asso di Picche. This car virtually screams 70’s and inspired me to update it a little. The usual lowering and larger diameter wheels, some tweaks to the body and rectangular headlights instead of the round ones. Somehow the nose reminds me of the Mk2 Scirocco now.
