    We had a few posts about it in November. I'm assuming they are done by now.

    You could fit another half a battery under the extra floor, which would come handy to haul the extra load, as would P motors and Ludicrous upgrade for additional power to pull all that load. P135D anyone?

    From the other images on AutoBlog and ebay, it seems the rear liftgate is closed but looks very misaligned. The frunk
    may have similar issues (probably why it was left popped, it may not even close). Maybe they messed up the structural aspects - after all the battery is a major structural component of the Model S. If you're going to stretch it, you have to make up for the lack of battery structure in over half the floor. Give the pictures of the liftgate and the frunk, it looks like the car is bowed upwards in the middle, yer somehow the roof sags in the middle. And that's only the mechanical outside parts. There is no telling what it looks like on the inside, or whether it even drives (maybe all the drive electronics and/or battery are not connected at this point).

    The ebay listing says they can finish it for a fee, but doesn't say what that fee would be. They obviously don't think it's worth doing or they would have done it themselves - maybe it's one of those projects where it would take $150K to complete at which point the limo would be worth $120K.
