I would suggest you to decide on a motor first because that will determine voltage in your system. Tesla cells may be difficult to reuse because of proprietary BMS, that you need to somehow hook up. They also require liquid cooling.
I see lots of used Nissan Leaf cells on ebay for reasonable price. If I get it right, those are dummy cells, i.e. no controller circuit inside. You can build you own BMS around those. Another option would be to buy few thousands of discrete 18650 and build your own pack. It depends on how much fun you want to get in the process :)
