Make this at least the third company to offer Model S visual modifications, as we already have Unplugged Performance & T Sportline.

The video above provides a close-up of this new body kit and the various components it includes.

The official unveiling of the Tesla Model S with Elizabeta body kit was kicked off by Prince Albert II at the 2015 TOP Marques show in Monaco in April.

Stop trying to make it look like a gasoline car!

My first thoughts were exactly that: they just couldn’t resist pluging in a couple of fake exhausts. Why?…

Speculawyer

Fake exhausts and fake grille. Just stop it!

And the very large shifter knobs in EVs are extremely annoying . . . they made sense when they were mechanical linked to something. But they are now these big knobs using up valuable space when they can easily be replaced by a little twist knob or a set of buttons (Fiat 500).

Yuck. Catfish face… 😛

no comment

that was my initial reaction as well

Leave Well Enough alone! this is A waste of Time, Energy, & Money $$$$ Only a Fool, Will Sabotage A Perfectly Beautiful Car…..

Tesla nosecone is no beautiful, can be improved.

Looks good. Having aftermarket parts for the Model S can only help its resale value with the performance crowd.

Lensman

This is the first aftermarket mod for the Model S that I’ve seen which I think doesn’t look worse than the unmodified car. I can’t say it looks better, but to my personal taste at least it’s not an “uglification”.

But any modification is likely to disturb the carefully engineered streamlining. Why spend all that money and probably wind up with a car that’s less energy-efficient?

The article says:

Saleen’s mods for the Model S have been featured in multiple articles at InsideEVs, such as this one:

…not that I personally care for that.

What damage is done to the CD?

Are those fake air scoops that obscure the front side markers?

Roy LeMeur

Mister Sharkey? Is that you?

Mike

so all that extra fake bodywork and pointless scoops is classed as “performance” kit – so it will appeal to folks who want “performance”?
Fascinating.
Take a car that is aerodynamically excellent and sticking a bunch of GNDNs (Goes Nowhere Does Nothing) that slow it down is called “performance”.

A dog. Fixing things that aren’t broken just like the others.
The only design weakness in the S are the lamps, both front and back and no one has addressed it. How about a kit that mimics the original lamps and markers lights on the concept S. Those were absolutely beautiful.

Someone out there

All these mod kits are trying to fix what isn’t broken. The “problem” with the Tesla isn’t the outside but the inside. Now, I wouldn’t say the regular interior of the Tesla is bad but it is quite bland, especially for a high end luxury car. Make a high end luxury interior for the Tesla and you might have a business.

If it was in Pixar’s “Cars” it would be an unhappy car… it has a sad face!

And yeah, sticking body kits onto cars that can fill up with gas at any corner doesn’t work if it’s a BEV. The increased drag reduces range. Who would want that???

It looks like it had a botched botox session.

Nix

I like the change in the shape of the nose-hole, but not the chunky execution of that shape change.

The rest is meh. Might as well put a Ferrari body kit on an old MR2. Same effect.

Ron Smith

Wow. I’m definitely not neutral about the look. The only word that comes to mind is “fugly”.
