Getting a Tesla Model S on the roads without an electric motor and batteries is certainly remarkable. Model S was the car that was destined to change the course of electrification and act as a diversion of the entire automotive industry to the EVs.
The design of the Model S is possessed by a dynamism that until today, a decade after its debut, passes its “paint” with immense ease. A look that, ideally, should be accompanied by a beautiful and lalistic thermal motor, preferably V8. A fantasy that improvers do in the U.S., where they put V8 up to Mazda MX-5!

The LS3 from the Chevrolet Camaro SS was chosen as the heart, with the 6.2 V8 Small Block fitting just fine in the engine room of a 2015 Model S, which had come out “total” due to flooding. The difficulties related to its adaptation, as well as the rest of the mechanical parts (engine, transmission, axles, semi-axles, differential, etc.) on a frame designed to accommodate battery arrays and electric motors.
