If you hear the name Local Motors and automatically associate it with the Rally Fighter pictured above, we can hardly blame you. It is the project for which the manufacturing startup is best known, after all. But it's not the only one it has undertaken to date. Local Motors has also sourced from the crowd a drift trike, a motorcycle, a pizza delivery vehicle and even a Peterbilt truck. And it's not done yet. Not even close.

According to the latest report, Local Motors's next undertaking will be to build a new sports car. Two of them, actually. Automobile magazine reports that the team leaders have set the basic parameters for the project that involve a front-mounted turbo four driving at least 200 horsepower to the rear wheels through a manual transmission with an independent suspension front and rear. From there, the sky's the limit.

Local Motors intends to produce two versions: one "naked" chassis in the spirit of the Ariel Atom that will be tuned for the track, to be followed by a "clothed" version for the street. Beyond that, we don't know, but it's not because Local Motors isn't saying – it's because it hasn't determined what form the project will take as it evolves.

That will be up to members of its community to propose components and design elements on which they will vote to determine what makes it onto the finished product. One thing we do know is that if it's anywhere near as awesome and off-the-wall as the Rally Fighter, it'll be one heck of a ride indeed.
