Understood, but I was kind of thinking like a monster Miata with a Ford 302 V8 is still a Miata. A heavily modified Miata, but a Miata nonetheless.
I know it's heavily modified, but it still looks cool! And it sure looks fun to drive!
Ideally, as somewhat of a purist myself, would love to be able to buy a Lotus engineered "super-Elise" - with a hi-power engine. But if they don't do it, glad to see entrepreneurial tuners step in to fill the market demand.
