Sounds like a good project to me.
My only suggestion... give the engine room enough space for an EG33 flat 6.
With some pistons, cams, and turbos... THAT will be an interesting car.
And frankly, to a certain extent... make the space-frame modular, and let people fit the mid-engine-proportioned body that they want.
I have several ideas, coupes, and roadsters.
DeLorean DMC12 updated to today.
Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale
Porsche 904 Carrera
Faux-rrari 250LM, Dino, or any number of mid-engined bodies, or even the original Dino concept.
Mercedes C111 concept
Marcos Mantis XP
Affordable knock-off of a Porsche Carrera GT, or 918 with boxer power.
Sterling, or newer canopy designs like Maserati Birdcage 75th, or Saab AeroX
Jag XJ13, CX75, XJ220, or XJ15
Or any manner of custom bodies one can imagine for a mid-engined layout.
BTW, Does anybody know if the 2010 Legacy GT cable-shifted 6MT is capable of being converted to lateral-drive only, if parts from a FWD Subaru 5-speed are used?
