Software company owner Jim Belosic has been modifying cars since he knew how and his latest project, the “Teslonda,” is still continuing to wow auto enthusiasts and the internet alike. Simply put, it’s based on a 1981 Honda Accord, but with a Tesla subframe as well as drive unit, along with Chevy Volt batteries. The custom-built vehicle may look a bit strange, but its speed definitely makes up for it, as it can accelerate from 0-60 in a mere 2.43-seconds and zip through the quarter mile in just 10.85-seconds.

“There is a retro-style dash. It’s inspired by arcade games of the 90’s. The dash displays the best 0-60 mph times as high scores. You can still keep your chassis that you love and the body design from the 60’s or 70’s or whatever you love and modernize it, and make it better than it ever was. I hope that by the time my son is old enough to drive I’ll be wrenching with him in the garage on electrics the same way that my dad wrenched with me on my first cars,” said Belosic.
