Personally, I think this discussion is worthy of its own thread. Either that, or I apologize for getting off-topic under "Next Gen Tesla Sportscar" since a utility/delivery vehicle is hardly a sports car. Ah, yes, the El Camino. ... with a cover for the bed (I'm sure I've seen those, too) and a shorter engine compartment to reduce weight. Front wheel drive with transverse motor should require very little room, and cooling the motor might be easier. It would need the extreme low profile of the Roadster (and it would have to look equally sexy). The El Camino is lower than a pickup truck, but I think it could have an even lower drag area. If only I could draw! P.S. I'd never heard of the Ford Ranchero before today, but that fits the bill about as well. In my day, "El Camino" was the generic term for any vehicle of this configuration. I guess Chevy won the Kleenex award in this category.
