just a small detail... TR-7 (and 8's) were front engine.

but you are 100% correct, mid engine is mainstream since... like? after the ferrari lambo wars trickled down to the market.

mr2 was really just a copy of the x-1/9, alla = miata/elan.

the 818C looks pretty good.

“Factory Five’s newest offering is a credible alternative to the Lotus Exige S or Porsche Boxster Spyder.”

or go 3-Eleven style: https://www.factoryfive.com/818/818r/

does anyone here on LT have one of these by any chance?
