Made with the same general process, yes. Made the same? No. Almost every piece on this car (from what I can see/read) can be made with a rather simple open/close 2 piece mold (they were trying to make molded plastic panels). Start adding undercuts, etc, and you're adding slides, pulls, etc and the cost of a mold and each part goes up quickly.

The roadster looks less chopped down too. Front holes aren't pointless either. The radiator is up front and needs to vent somewhere.
