The rules for the design were simple: using a donor Subaru WRX, a space frame with a 95-inch wheelbase, and a target weight of 1,800 pounds, the contestants were to design a two-seat sports car capable of construction for under $15,000.
Overall winner Nouphone Bansasi created a digital rendering and sketches of the 818 that we think just about anyone would like to see in their garage, particularly those with an eye for modern two-seaters with classic proportions. Bansasi's design was chosen from among more than 700 entries, returning a $5,000 prize.
Other winning designers include Rodney Olmos in second place overall, Xabier Albizu in third, and several sponsor awards for creativity, integration of computer technology and design, and more.
