The automotive world is full of promises, many of them dubious at best–like all of the “secret” ways to easily and inexpensively make more power or improve fuel economy.

So when Factory Five claimed we could build a mid-engined sports car ourselves, we had to jump at the chance–you know, for science.

You can read about how we built this unique Subaru-powered, mid-engined sports car–called the 818–starting with the December 2013 issue of Grassroots Motorsports, which you can read now by subscribing to GRM+ today.
