Pairing small, light roadsters from the 50s and 60s with rotary engines is nothing new. It's been done with complete and utter ferocity by people like Jeff Kiesel, whose turbo rotary Sprite is an autocross terror and wonder (see the video below for proof). But this particularly clean example of 12A-powered Datsun 311 Roadster goodness from Evil Genius Racing is rather unique, and it's up for sale.
Just $9,000 can land you what may be one of the most fun little packages you can buy. Sure, there are more advanced, more technically capable, and far more powerful cars out there. But this one holds an almost limitless potential for smiles--and it's in fantastic condition.
