Car porn, poor-man’s-DP edition

Do you know what 999 Motorsport’s Supersport is?  If you do, you’re probably trembling in anticipation; if not, let’s open the floor to Mike Kojima:

The Supersport is designed to be a user friendly and cheap to maintain purpose built race car that is fast enough to be fun but not so edgy as to be scary.  A sort of poor man’s Daytona Prototype.

The Supersport implements one of my favourite car hacks ever, which is to take a FWD drivetrain (in this case, a turbocharged Ecotec making 300hp plus running gear) and stuff it behind the front seats for an instant MR layout.  This is all done in a bespoke tube-frame chassis covered in a carbon fibre exterior, with an aggressive aero package.  Did I mention that it’s homologated into NASA ST2 and has its own spec NARRA class?  That it’s designed to be cheaper to run than a Spec Miata?  
And that it looks like sex on wheels?

Did I mention that MotoIQ took a bunch of laps around Willow Springs in that car, as well as ten pages worth of internals shots?

    It looks kinda like what the Honda CRX could have been.

      Yeah, with that tall rear deck. Good call.

      Too bad the CR-Z is mediocre. HPD’s apparently building a track-toy version of it, although good luck finding a class to run it in.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Appreciate it
