Tesla GT Muscle Car Design Project Looks Like It Came Straight From GTA V – CarScoops

With the Model 3, Model S, Model Y, and Model X in its current family, Tesla has two sedans and two SUVs on the market. Soon, it will also have the Cybertruck on the market as well as the Semi and its second-generation Roadster, occupying the pickup, semi-truck, and sports car markets.

One segment of the market Tesla has yet to venture into is the world of muscle cars – though, we’re not quiet sure how the definition applies to new age electric-powered models. Nevertheless, these independently made renderings from CarScoops reader Scott Barras show what a potential Tesla muscle car could look like.
The car, fittingly dubbed the Tesla GT, has been rendered in both hardtop and convertible forms and designed to be similar in size to American classics such as the Dodge Viper and older Chevrolet Corvettes.

In designing the Tesla GT, Barras took some inspiration from muscle cars of the 1960s and combined them with modern proportions and aerodynamics. At the front, the LED light bar stretching the width of the fascia is similar in design to the headlights of the Tesla Cybertruck while also offering a modern take on the hidden headlights used on the 1969 Camaro and Charger models.

The side view is a modern interpretation of the 3 box coupe silhouette, taking inspiration from classics like the Camaro, Challenger, and Mustang as well as the Corvette Stingray. The rear sports quite a prominent overhang which while somewhat unusual for a modern electric car, does evoke memories of muscle cars from a bygone era.
The convertible version is virtually identical to the hardtop albeit for the lack of a roof and the presence of two rollover hoops behind the passenger cell.
Just our two cents, but we think that both proposals would look better if the cabin area (with or without the roof but including the windshield) was more proportionally matched to the rest of the body, as they now kind of remind us of the Corvette C5 Z06 / C5 hardtop models.
