Gas coupe rules say that you cannot convert a front wheel drive car to rear wheel drive and still be legal in gas coupe.  The rules also say that all wheel drive or four wheel drive cars are only allowed in Production or Special Construction.

This leaves one other possibility . . converting an all wheel drive car to be a rear wheel drive car and run in gas coupe.  Something like an Audi or Subaru or Eagle Talon comes to mind. . .

Some of those (Well Audi anyway, don't know on the others) come as two wheel drive variations so you probably would be ok and no one is likely to look anyway. Especially ECTA. SCTA might be more picky and for them would for sure ask for an official opinion.  Seems like a lot of work/$. What do you think would be the advantage? But if starting from "I have no car and am looking for one" status, start with a 2WD variant as available.

You can divorce the trans from the engine and put it in back on the Audis... a la Porsche 924/944.

I have no idea what I'm doing... but it seems to be working!
