The very best way for you to learn is to bake all three kinds of cake that you listed in loaf pans, and carve the sports car out of that size.

Do this one kind of cake at a time. Chill it overnight before carving.

Any size will be ok. Before you start carving, work out the scale of your car and carve appropriately. (I carved a car from a 2" long block of marzipan!)
The bigger the cake the more detail you will be able to put but even with a small cake you will be able to put lots.

Good luck!
