Tesla’s new 2170 battery cell

As it turns out, Tesla, and its battery partner Panasonic, started production of cells for qualification at the plant in December, but today, it confirmed the start of “mass production” of the new battery cell, which will enable several of Tesla’s new products, including the Model 3. The new cell is called ‘2170’ because it’s 21mm by 70mm. It’s thicker and taller than the previous cell that Tesla developed with Panasonic. Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has been boasting about the new cell over the past few month. He said that it’s the “highest energy density cell in the world and also the cheapest”.

800 HP Blown Hulk ’59 El Camino Rat Rod

Join in the thrill of a lifetime as we’re driving the 800 HP blown Hulk Camino by ITW (In the Weeds) Hot Rods. The rumbling idle, revving engine, whine of the blower, and burning rubber make the experience mind-blowing. A 671 BDS blower, Dart block, Dana 60, Holly 750 4bbl carbs make this radical rat rod a screamer. An amazingly creative build.

Surely it’s not finished. There’s a fender missing.
