Here’s A Tesla-Powered Honda S2000 With Chevy Bolt Batteries

Gone are the days where the only way to improve a vehicle’s performance was to either tune its engine or drop in a more powerful one. Instead, these days you can replace an internal combustion engine with an all-electric powertrain if you so wish.

Take this Honda S2000, for example. The driver-focused Japanese sports car has been outfitted with two battery packs from the Chevrolet Bolt as well as one of the electric motors used by a Tesla Model S P100D. The resulting creation is a car that’s not only significantly faster than a standard S2000, but can almost out-accelerate all EVs on the market.

We’re not sure why the owner of this S2000 decided to remove the high-revving four-cylinder and six-speed manual transmission, as they form one of the most exhilarating powertrains ever produced by Honda.

Whatever the reason, the electric conversion means the sports car no longer delivers roughly 220 hp but instead pumps out 650 hp through the rear wheels. This makes it capable of some pretty impressive burnouts and, when let loose on the drag strip, it has posted a best time of 10.67 seconds on the quarter mile. That’s roughly on par with the quickest Model S P100Ds out there, but the builders of the car say they have encountered a few issues that have adversely affected the car’s straight-line performance.
