The Exocet is a really simple concept. Take the Miata engine and drivetrain along with the suspension and drop a light, stiff space frame chassis on top. You get to keep the great handling of the donor Miata, but with a weight savings of around 800 lbs. It's just as much fun as you think.
The Exocet was originally designed in the UK, where around 450 of them are roaming the streets and race tracks. Exomotive in the US reworked the chassis design for more strength and considerably greater stiffness, and has started producing the new design in Atlanta, Georgia. Flyin' Miata is proud to be a dealer for this new redesigned kit.

To answer the big ones: yes, we will be offering turn-key options. And yes, an LS motor will fit. At the moment, we offer rollers for those who want a head start on the build process.
There is a Base kit that's $700 less than the Sport, but we think the Sport is the best starting point for a street and/or track day car. It has a stiffer chassis and improved rollover protection. So we don't recommend the Base.
Once we have actual pictures of the 2014 bodywork, we'll put them up. For the time being, we're using computer renderings. These cars are real, there are hundreds of them out there in action.
New for 2014 is newly redesigned bodywork. It offers more room underhood, gives space for a rear-mounted battery, allows for a greater variety of lighting options and is more aerodynamic. Oh, and it looks better too! All new orders will be delivered with the new body.
Here's a good illustration of the changes in the frame for the various kit. Silver is the Base kit. Sport add the yellow tubes, and Race takes the Sport chassis and adds the red tubes.
A complete Sport kit with the optional wing mounts.
You are welcome to pick up your kit from the factory in Atlanta, free of charge.
The car in this video is a Sport kit fitted with the optional rear wing mounts and missing all the bodywork. It was built from a 1999 donor and sports an FM II turbo system as well as AFCO suspension. We had to use a 480 hp Miata as a camera car, nothing else could keep up!
Here's a time-lapse video of the same car being built.
