Next Gen Electric Supercar

Hey Friends,

I am starting on the journey of building another electric supercar.

Still in the planning stages. Here is my thought...I would like to take the cockpit of a modern car and strip most of the exterior for my own unique exterior design. As far as drivetrain, I was thinking all wheel drive. My first thoughts go to tesla as I have done that before but anything is on the table. Also looking for battery suggestions. My thought is something smaller and more modular and smaller (less weight) than the tesla packs, but that is also an option.

If you are looking for more details, check out the video.

I look forward to your suggestions.

After listening to your goals of having less fiddly things like doors and interiors to do but still having a go at exterior design I was thinking about the Porsche 996 chassis. They can still be had relatively cheap (for a Porsche) and the IMS failure might be a good candidate. Also they made AWD versions in the Carerra 4 and Turbos so you could either adapt the physical driveline, or possibly put a Tesla drive unit up front for AWD. Lastly, there are limitless suspension and upgrade parts for the chassis as well as tons of bodykits that could serve as a base for your project.
