That guy does really good work !
I didn't realize it was an illustration until i had looked at it for several seconds.
I love that design. The windshield resembles on off of a boat though, eh ?


EDIT : Oh wow ...they are going to build it in real life too ! I just looked at the other pics.
Beautiful !

I'd call that a DuVall-style windshield.

Some of the other renderings have paint that is way too reflective. In this one the ground shadow is too sharp.

They are trying to sell a half-finished car for $400,000. Well I guess you get to pick the paint color and upholstery.

x2

Someone saw what needed to be done and did it. I wonder if there's any taper in the doors. It would be easy to hide with that external drip rail.

It manages to avoid the awkwardness that many of those conversions have.

Edit: Lookee here:

Drop that on a Tesla Model S floorpan, eh?
