After I saw this concept I thought this vehicle has great styling and would be more practical than a single seater.

I know I can't duplicate it , but it gave me some ideas.

I think it would be cool to mod a Fiero like a raid spec car from the video game The Crew.

I keep having this crazy idea of using a Subaru engine and driveline to make an all wheel drive Fiero. The boxer engine would probably fit under the hood, the gas tank tunnel would have plenty of clearance for a transmission and transfer case, The rear axle shouldn't be hard to mount, and with the engine up front there is plenty of room for a fuel cell. You'd have to figure out if there was enough room for the front axle and steering.

If you used regular Impreza stuff, that could be a formidable autocrosser.

I had the same idea for an X-19 (Fiat) when they first came out, but using the Brat running gear. The WRX Impreza drivetrain should fit into a Fiero easily. Might need to use the WRX front suspension...
I think it's the ultimate setup if you want an AWD Fiero. I can build it for you if you like.
