Question Toyota supra MKIV idea/question

Hey everyone. I'm new here and I'm quite a Toyota supra fan. I wanted to ask I anyone can see the production of an FRP or carbon fiber body shell of the 1993-1998 Toyota supra MKIV. Basically it's a bare shell like du acorn classic bodies muscle car shells. And it's for people who want to build their dream supra from scratch and turn it into a dedicated racer or a fast and furious replica without tearing up a real supra which i believe has entered classic car status. Please chime in what you think everyone and this is quite a nice forum you have here. Good to see there are people who love the supra as much as I do. And it wasnt from the fast and the furious it was from a thrill rode in the passenger seat at a track. Also this company is a perfect example to get a grasp of what I'm talking about. Is this possible in the future?

Unlikely and completely impractical. Given that the MKIV is a monocoque type chassis and not a very common car I expect that no company out there would find it fiscally prudent to invest in the research, engineering and tooling required... You're essentially talking about building a completely new chassis.
