I've heard from reliable sources that Patrick is no longer associated with JPS. I'm not sure what this means, but Patrick was doing the traditional Speedster builds using bodies from Brazil and John was doing the specialty builds of A coupes with either Subaru engines or VW engines.

I went on the site. Can't tell who is running the outfit, but it looks like he/they are no longer building coupes and no longer installing Subaru engines.
Very interesting. Subaru engines and coupes were the things John was doing. Does that mean that it's John who is out? I have no idea, but it's very interesting.
its like a friggin soap opera,,or whos on first scenario...
My 2 cents’ worth. I just took a delivery of a JPS Speedster from John. Most of my interactions were with Patrick .. a good guy. He had to spend more time with family that is in ill health. The last few weeks before delivery I was working solely with John Steele. All my exchanges with him were positive and I would not hesitate to recommend JPS. I know of some people saying they had negative experiences I can only speak to my good experience. Very happy with my build. Have to make a couple of minor adjustments that John said he’d take care of.
