    I can't wait for the next video of when they get this out on the road :)

    If I've got the numbers roughly right, that engine in the Evora is going to make roughly 2x the power / torque as my 2.5 Sport makes, in approximately the same package (form factor, weight).

    2x power / torque in the same package = ridonculous

    Very cool stuff.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who has wondered what it would take to get a Model S rear motor into a Roadster.

    It's been done. I don't know what happened to the Roadster with the transplanted Model S motor but it must be somewhere...
