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.

only just realized you're using a full model S rear suspension and subframe
do you find that doesn't really corner well? I've heard since its designed for a 5000lb luxury sedan, it has very little adjustment and doesn't like to take hard corners and doesn't feel good to drive.
what I mean is the fundamental focus of its design is comfortable heavy car, which sort of taints the entire thing to not be particularly good at cornering no matter what you do, the lack of adjustment is just another symptom of that

but if electric supercar guy has it on his setup and has been thrashing it, and still likes it, that would be a good sign that it's more than good enough for most (performance minded) conversions...hopefully...

An example of a rear suspension design that'll be sporty would be the taycan's, but there's very few wrecked examples so getting a rear clip is basically impossible for now.
still, this guy did an excellent write up on everything he could see about it
I wonder if this rear clip could be adapter to have a tesla LDU nestle within it?
