Warp Five Inc. (David Schroeder) was producing the " Starship " in 1999. They offered it as a rolling chassis kit for $ 8,995 or turnkey with a Kawasaki 750cc engine for $13,995.

Luke Chaplin took this photo of the "Starship" prototype at the Warp Five Engineering booth at Import Carlisle. After considerable prodding, they admitted that it was simply a Litestar with their name on it.

They said that they were going into production and had three vehicles of their "new design" under construction. The improvements that they claimed were: the canopy would flip back "just like a real airplane", the back end would be flat with a radiator in it for a goldwing water cooled engine (considerably more power of course), and it would have "active tilt control" (not sure what that was or how it would work).

According to Dave Bauer:

I spoke to Dave Schroeder in the 1990's. I had him make a glass windhield for my Pulse. He told me that the white and orange car in his adds was actually a Litestar, He started producing one Starship based loosely on the Pulse with improvements, but his buyer fell through and he never completed the Starship.

One interesting thing he produced was a rear body that gave him enough room to install a rear facing radiator and A/C condensor below his tail light.

In about 1998, Dave had decided to sell his vehicle and a few molds for $20,000. It is unknown where Litestar #11 is today.
