Elon Musk wants to put a Tesla engine inside James Bond's submersible Lotus

Tesla's CEO has apparently dropped $866,000 on the amphibious Lotus Espirit from The Spy Who Loved Me. His intent? He wants to turn the prop car (which never actually swam) into a true aquatic vessel, courtesy of a Tesla electric powertrain. At this point, we're just wondering what's left for Musk to experiment with -- have land and space bored him already?
