The Fisker was designed to take an ICE aboard. The Tesla is a purposely designed full EV.
If you'd put a V8 in that it can only be used as a range extender, to power a generator to rechagre the batteries.
Thinking of it, I don't think it would deliver that much extra range

Saw my first Tesla model S in the wild a few weeks ago (seen at least ten Fiskers over time, dunno why the Teslas kept hiding). Then yesterday I saw two model S 85s parked close to one another in some eco hideout. Feasting my eyes for sure

My new favorite mineral is tinnunculite which forms when falcon poo reacts with the gases from a burning coal mine. Yeah.

This thread is about the Telsa.

This rumor is probably just that.

Despite the Rumors, VL Automotive is Not Doing a Tesla Model S V8 Conversion
