What car would you build over the Tesla skateboard? Meet the EST!

When we bought the prank that Tesla would sell its running chassis, the skateboard, for people to choose which body to put over it, our readers went mad! There have been many ideas of what would deserve to use the Model S P90D chassis, but we do not want to influence any of you because the purpose of this article is precisely to ask: what would you build over the Tesla skateboard? One of our readers has already sent us his suggestion. Made by himself. Carlos de Melo Jr., who lives in Germany, would produce the EST!

The EST! is a hot rod (hence the Ford badge) Melo has designed and created as a model. He works as a designer and clay-modeller and has already created many models for carmakers to present in auto shows. The EST! would be produced in small numbers, with exclusive features for each owner. Carlos intends to become a carrozziere, confirming what we have said about the Tesla skateboard offer: it would make them come back!


The image above was Melo’s original idea. A little different from the clay model, but also very interesting.

What about you? What car would you have over the Tesla skateboard? Choose wisely and share your thoughts with us in the comments box!
