Posting for Jen and Rob. They own Tesla Mule 1 and have decided to sell it. This is the Lotus Elise that Tesla used to develop the Roadster.

Link to 2014 thread about the car:

I can't load the original article. Is the car at all operational?
"When the car left Tesla, they held on to the electric motor and all other drive train parts. It still lacks an engine to this day."
"The drive-train removal process looks like a rush job. They just cut the wiring and took it out of the car. No clean removal, just a pair of scissors and the electrical drive train was gone."

Apparently not.. what a shame.

I've always wondered how easy it is to swap out the entire drivetrain out of a Tesla Roadster and install it in a Lotus Exige GT3 body. If I ever have disposable money, that would be a project I will have Rich Rebuilds make for me. One can dream.
