Tesla Motors VP of Vehicle Engineering Peter Rawlinson with Model S – Click above to watch video after the jump

If you're someone who likes to leer under the sheet metal of the latest, hottest automotive tech, then we have the videos for you. In a posting on their blog which confirms they've completed multiple Alpha prototype builds, Tesla Motors has just released three clips featuring Vice President of Vehicle Engineering Peter Rawlinson giving an explicit look into how the very sexy Model S is put together. Engineering pr0n, if you will. We're talking extruded aluminum, multi-link rear suspensions, motor and inverter packaging. The whole kit and kaboodle.

Now, many have praised the looks of this sultry sedan and expressed appreciation of the performance that has been promised. Creating a package that can properly fulfill the wanton desires of tomorrow's demanding electric car buyers, however, requires a certain amount of ingenuity and creativity not often seen, but is definitely on display here.

In the trio of videos you'll get to gape at what their vehicle engineers have wrought within the unique space an electric powertrain offers. What they've done to make it safe, give a great driving experience and embody efficiency. But enough talking, hit the lights and the break and watch for yourselves.
