If I get some time I could definitely trace those in Illustrator and possibly create a font from them.
I have the tracing if you want, although if you have Illustrator it's not much effort. What font creation software do you have?

I did this many months ago by hand and posted the alphabet in a PNG in the graphics thread. I've since updated it to refine some of the letters, which we don't have real-life examples for (like X, Y and Z). So YMMV.

I got the numbers from the dashboard displays and shifter knob.

Here's the AI file.

Pretty sure it was FontForge that I looked into before for a project. They changed their mind on fonts so I didn't end up grabbing it.

I would love some vinyl stickers to change the coloring of the letters on the grille, as well as the ones on the dash. I love how they look from the original pre-production model with the navy/white/red interior

Let me know if you find one. I’d like to cut some new vinyl letters for the grille. White just doesn’t seem fancy enough for me.
1001freefonts.com is my go to font bank.

Here they are as a SVG file, I have a small Brother plotter that's what it uses.

It's a bit crude but it's Ver. 1.0. Someone test it out and see if it works.

I doubt I got all of the kerning but I tried.
Rough-ish edges and the O's were a bit off in the middle, but overall the char set is working well and font doesn't throw errors. Nice job.

This was just a first attempt at a new font software. I just did a quick tracing of the PNG that was posted earlier. I didn’t clean it up at all.

Now when I get some more time I can possibly redo it and flesh out more characters too.

I used Birdfont which for free isn’t bad.
