There are a few companies that sell specially prepared lexan for race car windshields. It's lighter and stronger than glass at about 1.5 pounds per square foot.

This might sound silly: Assuming you had some practical means of shaping it (or were building a car with mostly flat surfaces) could lexan be used for body panels?

Lexan is a thermoplast, meaning you can easily shape it after heating, and you can easily create compound curves with it.

However, glass or carbon fiber is far better choice for body panels than lexan.
