Someone tag him in.

I know there are a bunch of folks here that would love a fastback. Ryansmoneypit comes to mind.

Copied this from clubroadster

Re: New Lightyear Miata Fastback

We are getting very close now. I had some small pin holes that I thought would be filled when I painted it. Seeing as I want it right, it's had a full rub down after filling the pin holes, and is being repainted in a booth professionally.
I took orders locally for a batch of 10. And once these are done and the process is running smooth, I will open up a run for everyone. We will look into shipping options later, but the box is about 1450x450x1450. I think it's a bit smaller than this, but you can quote that size for shipping purposes to get a rough idea. From Melbourne Australia.
I haven't finalised pricing as yet, waiting on all the parts and labour to be added up once we start.

I'm guessing it's going to be in the 1200-1500 range shipped to your door stateside.

That kinda sucks but... it is what it is.

What is that guess based on? Because I think you are missing another 1000$ somewhere.

Price for the group buy is/was ~AUD2200, you do the math on the exchange rate, and add freight.

I'll be shocked if it's much less than twice that.

At $1200-$1500 i'm a guaranteed buy.

No ****.
A semi-rare colored oem top might go for more.

I guess I should just pounce on one if I see it in the 800 ish range.

Aren't the tops 1500 new from mazda Motorsports?

In any event, curious what the final product will run.

If it really is that cheap, I don't think he will be able to keep them in stock, and I would be on board for one.

Gross. I am not a fan of that fast back. It's to smooth flowing and doesn't quite match the shorter curves of the NB. I wouldn't rock that if he gave one to me free and pre painted.

that's a really nice design but i'm concerned that curved rear window will add a LOT to the cost. Even curving lexan to spec is annoyingly expensive.
but for $1500 unpainted? yes please. shipping may kill that though
