Hello the Wikispeed car really interests me and how its opened sourced.

I have a large homemade CNC machine which I would like to design my own body for this car, but the price for a complete car is too much for me so I hope I could partner up with a local mechanic in the future to make our own.
Ive seen the newly created Wikispeed Canada facebook btw.

I read the chassis can be bought for $1000 at the Seattle home base, will you guys ever make a guide on how you got the cars you have for sale road legal?

Also do you think the electric drive train could be (low spec, heavy setup) cheaper then the sourced out Civic one?

Ideally I would like to purchase the Chassis and make it into a road legal hardtop convertible by using a $1000 donor for parts... proper a-pillars, windshield, suspension etc.

P.S. I mixed a couple super cars designs on top of the Wiki Chassis which can be seen on YouTube called - WikiSpeed Chassis overlay
