About Factory Five Racing

The Built, Not Bought Company

Factory Five Racing was founded in 1995. Over the years we have grown from a start-up business in a small garage to become the world’s largest manufacturer of “build-it-yourself” component car kits. We employ a full-time crew of about 40 people, and are located in Wareham, Massachusetts (about an hour south of Boston). We make our products right here in the USA, in the heart of New England where American manufacturing was born.

The Factory Five Mk4 Roadster is the world’s best-selling, best-engineered, and best-performing replica of all time.

There is no better way to honor a legacy than to continue it. The Mk4 Roadster is designed to accurately reproduce the looks of the legendary 427 Cobra*, keeping its essence intact, while using modern technology, parts, and materials to improve performance, reliability, and comfort.
