If you're not satisfied with an "off-the-shelf" roadster, here's some great sources for "Do-It-Yourself" sports cars.  A good number of them are British cottage-industry concerns.

 

http://www.wcmultralite.comWorld Class Motorsports....a newer Texas-based builder of Lotus 7-type cars, available with motorcycle engines, or automotive engines (such as the Honda S2000 drivetrain). A very slick-looking modern version of a classic.

 

 

http://www.championmotorcars.com/ The "Locost"....a neat concept. A DIY Lotus 7 using a book and various suppliers. Build the entire car from scratch (and save a huge amount of money) or buy sub-assemblies from various suppliers. Lots of discussion groups and forums on the web for "locost" (try a Google-search to find the latest ones). There is also a "Locost 11" in the works.
