    I have to admit it's a pretty sweet car (concept?)

    However, if the Hawk truly were still made today, I'd bet it would look like this:



    ...just like everything else on the road.

        Looks more like an early '60s MG with a Thunderbird-ish roof. Looks to be a two seater which would rule out the "sports car with room for five" idea. I think it looks too much like an MG.

          A little thread drift. I imagine that if the Packard Hawk were still being made today, it would look something like the car depicted at the link below:

              Well I'd drive whatever that little Farina-ish coupe is...but if the Hawk were still being built I think it'd be a midsize GT sedan, maybe even a 4dr in disguise (think Mercedes CLS).

                the Hawk would most likely have been turned in to a 4dr Sedan and the Commander would have become an SUV

                  The windshield, headlights, wipers, tires, wheels do not look like anything from a recent/new car. That car looks like 1960s, not now.

                          Every single idea shown so far is making my stomach queasy.

                            I have wanted to put 56 t-bird portholes in my 62 since I realized there is a large blind spot, it would look cool, and further confuse none-sude folks. It would be cool if they could open too. I don't like the side windows in the proto=type to small and not flush enough to body.

                              A modern Hawk would probably be nothing more than a coupe variant of the family 4-door, with a few styling bits added on to make it "sporty".
                              Something like a Camry two-dor (Solara), Mercedes Benz C-Class coupe (or the older CLK), or Accord two-door.
