Some importers do sell Tesla in Brazil

This one has been around for a while:
Keep Electric – Sales, Service & Support
They do have a video of a Model 3. It is a US Model that uses some adapter to the common Brazilian Mennekes 2 style EV charging.
It might be easier to import an EU native Tesla, all of which now have the EU standard CCS with Mennekes 2 base rather than the US SAE 1772. The EU vehicles would not need adapters in Brazil at all.

I have not yet contacted them or any other importer but I'm debating it since it seems Tesla will not soon deliver my 2016 Model 3 order for Brazil. They no longer accept those orders so that is a decent negative hint.

Does anyone else have any insight?

Does anyone know if it is possible to buy a Tesla in Europe with the temporary export plates that most countries allow? I have bought several in France using that system, which would make far more sense than buying a tax paid one to export.
