I'm building a custom car. First of all please don't tell me it's waste of money. It's my money. Don't tell me I should just buy a porsche with all the money I'd spend. I've heard way too much crap from people who think it's a waste of time.
Anyway here's the idea. Has anyone ever heard of the Fisker Karma. It's a plug in hybrid 4 door sports coupe designed by Aston Martin Engineer Henrik Fisker. Anyway I really liked the lines of the car and the overall appearance of it. I have always wanted to build a car from the ground up. I however want to build a 2 door version of the car. I put the photos into photoshop to get an idea of what the 2 door would look like. I really like what i came up with. Here is a picture of my design.
2-Door Fisker Karma
It's sort of an Aston Martin look. But I like the lines of the car alot better than any of the Aston Martins.
I have been researching different chassis's I could use as a base. Using one from a production car would be alot easier than having one custom built due to price and also getting it titled and registered. The c5 corvette looks like a good start. Plus with the LS1 motor it's got the performance you'd expect from a car that looks like this.

I can do alot of custom fabrication for the frame. That won't be a problem. I'll have to have the bodywork done by someone. I don't how to do fiberglass and I'm really not interested in learning. Carbon fiber might be good idea. It's more expensive but so much lighter and stronger.
I'm just looking for ideas. What chassis would you use? Do you know of any shops that you can just give them 3d computer models of the body parts you need and they can make them from that?
