Official rules and deadlines for the Grassroots Motorsports/Factory Five design contest are in. The contest asks entrants to design the body of Factory Five's upcoming Subaru WRX-powered roadster.
The chassis for the car is almost through the development stage, so Factory Five is asking would-be designers to focus solely on the look and shape of the car, keeping within the specified 95-inch wheelbase dimensions.

Entries have to be submitted as either a JPG or PDF file to the company by June 1, 2011. The company will accept hand-drawn design ideas, but they have to be scanned and converted to one of the specified document formats. No old-fashioned pencil and paper designs will be accepted through snail mail.

To submit your designs, send them as attachments in an email to The overall winner of the competition will receive a $5,000 cash prize and the satisfaction of having their design rendered in fiberglass as the new Factory Five roadster.

The planned car itself is a mid-engined, WRX-powered roadster that Factory Five says can be ordered and completed for less than $15,000. Thank you to everyone for the tips!
