The MOTUS engine is lighter than the Miata 4-banger, so handling wouldn't suffer.

A 350bhp, 2000lbs sportscar would be great fun!

Heck, I had fun in my M1 with not much more than 100bhp!
The Miata 4 cyl is actually a heavy engine. Most links I've read put it at about 290 Lbs complete with manifolds (engine only, not including transmission). The Katech with 350 HP and reduced weight would be awesome!
