Mid-engined WRX powered kit car

Kind of surprised no one else has posted anything about this. Grassroots Motorsports magazine (my favorite car mag of all) had stuff on entering the design contest for this project. Factory Five, who builds Cobra, Daytona coupe, Ford GT kit cars, is behind this project. It looks like it is getting much closer to fruition from what this video contains. Check it out....

I think I'll have to try to get a job with those guys, since I'm in the neighborhood now.

Been following it for a while... I believe they're targeting 1800lbs, with an all-in price of $15,000.
