Founder | CEO
Since Jason Godsil was able to walk, he was working on cars with his dad. Having restored many cars over his lifetime, there isn't much Jason hasn't done. Engine rebuilds, suspension, body work and paint and interior work is all areas that he has worked in to get the cars restored.
From 1997-2005 Jason worked in manufacturing as a labor employee. In 2002, Jason started an online car parts company and in 2006 it morphed into Exotica Motorsports which just caters to the very high-end market. Since Jason's passion is high dollar cars like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley, he thought it would be better to specialize in those cars. Having a lot of experience with the high-end market and clients will aide Jason in this venture.
Elite was created in 2007 as the manufacturing arm of Exotica Motorsports. Elite contracted out production of carbon fiber parts for Ferraris. Having a lot of issues with carbon fiber suppliers, Jason did the clear coating of the carbon fiber due to his past experience with painting cars. In 2009 he also attended a carbon fiber school in Reno to learn the process himself to bring the manufacturing in house. Also in 2009, Jason started on his Bachelor's Degree at the Art Institute of Portland, majoring in Industrial Design. He wanted to be able to design, manufacture and market products under one roof.
In 2010 he started a new path in life when he founded Godsil Motorcars. His vision is to create the greatest team in the industry to design and manufacture the best superluxury car in the world. The Manhattan was born that year to soon compete with the likes of Rolls Royce and Bugatti.
