I`d actually still like a Mk1 Freelander. Would work quite nice on a High set up TT-02

That’ll do for me but the Cortina would be the dogs bits. I remember seeing it on Grandstand being drive by Jim Clark on three wheels half the time. He then jumped into a formula 1 or maybe even 2 and raced it and won. In those days the drivers would compete in multiple disciplines at the same meeting!!!

A Lancia Stratos for sure. I’m sure Lancia/Stellantis would not demand much in licensing to make it happen. And if they end up shutting down Lancia completely???...who knows what would happen then? But in my opinion, the Stratos is one of the most important and iconic cars of all time.

There are many others I’d obviously like to see too... a Caterham ... a Porsche 550 Spyder, etc...

 

But, for the love of god... please... PLEASE re-release the B2B sidecar again!

A non-Rally Lancia Stratos, so I could paint it that sweet Lancia Light Blue.

A Hyundai Elantra to delight my Hyundai loving partner.

A Ford Pinto/Mercury Bobcat on an M-Chassis.

Another vote for the TRF Lunchbox. :P

I'd love to see Tamiya 'do' an SCX10-esque car. Front motor, 313mm (optionally adjustable to a couple of other sizes), remote lockable diffs and maybe the three-speed from either the big rigs or the Bruiser. Basically, what the CC02 should have been.
Somewhat related: make above-mentioned chassis flat enough that a full interior becomes possible. Then team up with the guys that design the 1/24 scale model cars, and make a full interior tub. I'm talking floormats up.

Tamiya's 56101 SRC-6000 Solar Eagle kit was a one-of-a-kind from them released many years ago; I think it would be fascinating to see a "Solar Eagle II" that demonstrates big improvements in solar cell efficiency and motor efficiency.  It would be quite the dream to have maybe a 15-20 mph car that could run all day with direct sunlight.

Really cool idea! Maybe have a competing product on hydrogen. (Water Eagle?)

Yes, these would all be cool choices . I think the Pinto/Bobcat/ 2 Gen mustang platform is under represented in models in generals. 
Along with the Hyundai Elantra another modern hatchback I’d like to see is the current Honda Civic ( on a FWD M platform )

This kit would be brilliant but i can only imagine what it would cost.

I would like Tamiya to release a m-chassis with double CF deck.  I have their TA05 M-Four (bedsides M01, M03, M05), but all my other CF m-chassis are by other brands like TOP and Xpress.

Just this..  make these into kits.

I love this. You've already done all the hard work for them. All they've got to do is copy it and stick your name on the box, or on a sticker on the shell somewhere. But then the corporate pride kicks in and they can't bring themselves to use an 'outside the company' idea

**I'd like to see them re-release the King Cab.  Perhaps a Super King Cab version with the Super Astute TTC drivetrain and carbon reinforced chassis and reinforced/re-designed parts that were known to break easily.   Sell or include Hop-up Aluminum Dampers and sell separate body sets like the Hilux.  

 

**Perhaps make short wheelbase versions of current touring chassis and make Porsche 911 GT2 and Porsche 934 bodies with more liveries a Tamiya mainstay.  Sell belted 31mm tires with Type-A compound.  

 

*Make race worthy 2wd and 4wd buggy kits that have the same appeal of the original buggies like the Frog, Fox, Hotshot, etc.

@MadInventor:  These were done by a much better craftsman than myself.  For sure however, I would spend TRF money for them in kit form.

For me it has to be a new buggy range like the TA/TRF treatment for onroad. A new DB03/DN02 and TRF5XX and TRF2XX. Preferably just like how they do the onroad, tried and true TRF for competitive and some innovation in the DB/DN cars with a clear upgrade path for the cheaper ones.

A static super detailed Porsche 917k in 1/12th scale. Can’t understand why they never offered it as Tamiya s relationship with Porsche used to be so good.

Possibly because MFH models already got there
