It's up for sale on Bring A Trailer with a current bid of $50,000.
This is a 2012 Superlite Coupe…. and you’ve probably never heard of it. Built in a facility near Detroit, Michigan, the kit car is constructed of an aluminum monocoque tub, paired with a powder coated steel roll cage, and fiberglass bodywork. This particular example comes powered by a Porsche 911 (996) GT3 flat-six engine, and is up for sale on Bring A Trailer.
Current bidding lists the Coupe at $50,000, a pretty reasonable price for a car that cost $70,000 when new. The odometer reads 29,000 miles (46,670 kilometers), but the seller says that only 100 of those miles were driven since the car was built. The engine features fully rebuilt heads, and comes paired to an overhauled six-speed G96/96 manual gearbox off a Porsche 911.

Additional features include a Porsche Cup lightweight flywheel, an external oil tank, Borla exhaust, and Brembo brakes. A set of Forgestar F14 wheels have also been fitted, measuring in at 18x10-inches in the front, and 19x12-inches in the rear. The interior, though scarce, uses a 911 GT3 steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara, and comes equipped with a digital speedometer.
Though the listing doesn’t give any specific performance details, the 3.6-liter engine, depending on modifications, could produce anywhere rom 355 to 380 horsepower (264 to 283 kilowatts). Total curb weight is listed at a featherlight 2,400 pounds (1,088 kilograms), with the body measuring in at 164-inches long, with a wheelbase of 105 inches.
The car is street-legal in certain states – this one was registered in California specifically – under the SB-100 designation. It comes with some spare tires, and a clean title in the seller’s name. It’s the perfect 911 GT3 alternative, and it could be in your driveway if the price is right. But hurry, less than a day is left on the auction.
