California-based Big Limos is working on a stretched limousine conversion of the Tesla Model S.
Well, it had to happen sooner or later. While we are patiently waiting for Tesla Motors to unveil the facelifted Model S, the all-electric sedan is about to be transformed into a full-blown limousine. Big Limos is building what it describes as being the “world’s first Tesla limo” which as the time-lapse video below reveals involved literally cutting the Model S in two.
Technical details about the limousine are not available at this point, but in one of the adjacent images you can see the elongated car with the extra length added between the doors. Unlike Audi’s six-door A8 L extended revealed earlier today, the stretched Model S continues to have four doors and probably adds at least three feet (almost one meter) between the doors.
We remind you a regular Model S has an overall length of 196 inches (4.97 meters) and comes with a wheelbase spanning at 116.5 inches (2.95 meters). Needless to say, all the added length will be in the wheelbase to enable a roomier interior as you would expect from a proper limousine. It would be neat if the car will get a bigger battery pack since now there’s more room between the front and rear axles.
As a final note, let's not forget there's also that four-door Model S convertible from Newport Convertible Engineering, but we haven't heard anything about it in a while.
