Porsche for full-on competition use. Note braces tying front down tubes and main loop to body. The sun roof doesn't do much for stiffness so this additional connection does much to stiffen the whole structure

Back braces with X tubes and seat belt mounting tube, the link between the main loop and the b-pillar can just be seen.
