Overview

The Factory Five 818 is about handling and driving fun. It has already become one of our most popular component cars, and has attracted a whole new generation of car builders..

The Factory Five 818 is an affordable two-seater, mid-engined car that is a modern original design rather than a vintage replica. The 818 has running gear that can be found anywhere on the planet and can be built in both right-hand and left-hand drive configurations.

“The kit costs $9,990, so even with an unreasonably cherry WRX donor, the bang for the buck is hard to beat: a Porsche 911 Turbo’s power-to-weight ratio for the price of a well-used Boxster.”

“Ran under 4.0 seconds to 60 mph, fun little beast, like driving a mini Can-Am car.”

“We started with nothing more than a pile of parts, a wrecked Subaru, and an instruction manual, and we finished with a car that can attract drooling bystanders, beat a Porsche on a track, and take you to work every day.”
