Mid-Engine Toy

Just playing during lunch at work... Mid-engine Toy???
Not much space for wheel travel in the front... but who needs wheel travel?
I definitely would rather see something like this instead of th FR-S... or along with?
Whatcha think?

Looks good, like a mini-Lambo, except slower & more reliable.

That is interesting, the wheel travel happens when the car goes from show car to street car and they ruin the lines.
That looks more like a Lambo/Ferrari than an MR2. Your wheels are very far back in the chassis for a mid-transverse. That would better suit a longitudinal lay-out. Not that this is a bad thing, but is a departure from the MR2 philosophy

The main problem is that manufacturers must build to survive crash tests, roll over tests, pedestrian impact tests, and budget constraints.

The Libra, was like many UK kit/short-production cars: it was AWESOME and met its inevitable demise.
They were bought by Westfield and, as far as I can tell, discontinued.

None-the-less I WANT ONE SOOOOOOO BAD.
