How About Some Owner-Modified Tesla Model S Sedans?


APR 17 2017 BY EVANNEX 5


The Australian Tesla Model S P500D – George’s Model S has carbon fiber parts along with hints of red featured on the front bumper and on the pinstripe inside the Wheel Bands.


It’s not uncommon for Tesla owners to modify the “look” of their Model S with some distinctive, aftermarket parts and accessories. Many Tesla owners discover something that can complement their new ride. Recently, rock star Oli Sykes ordered some Tesla accessories and created a very cool look for his “electric beast” — later he showcased his Tesla to millions of his followers on social media. But you don’t have to be a famous celebrity to transform the look of your Tesla.

*Editor’s Note: We often feature articles from EVANNEX here at InsideEVs, but they also make some nifty swag for Tesla vehicles.  A recent post by the outfit (Authored by Matt Pressman) detailed some of those accessories, and we’d figure we’d pass it along!  (Of note:  InsideEVs has no advertising or sponsorship relationship with EVANNEX, but we do think their gear is fairly swell).

George T., from Australia, sent us some photos of his Tesla Model S transformation (above). He told us that:

Recently my P90D has been dressed for whiskey and cigars. I ‘de-chromed’ the body and changed its looks to [fit] my taste. I also added the Lighted Emblem and Lighted TI have changed the model designation to ‘P500D’ as the P90D has a range of over 500Km when fully charged! It has raised a few eye brows [and it’s] absolutely fun to drive.”

Ben S. from Colorado explained:

“Love your products and have quite a few of them in my current Model S. I get stopped daily about the glowing Lighted T on the back by other Tesla drivers asking where I got it… [I also] can’t wait to get my Model 3 and start customizing it with your gear as well.” Ben definitely displays serious Tesla pride — the front hood of his Model S really shows off his love for Tesla. He says, “My friends say my car looks like a stormtrooper.”

Ben’s Tesla Model S has the logo creatively shown on the front hood along with a complete “chrome delete” and new aftermarket wheels.

Sean B. in Florida was excited to create a new look for his Tesla Model S. He told us, “I am very excited to get the wheels done and will definitely share some photos with your [caliper] covers installed.” And after installing red caliper covers and his new aftermarket wheels in the Miami area… sure enough, he sent over some stunning photos. Check out his Model S, transformed with “new shoes” installed.

Sean B. added red caliper covers and silver aftermarket wheels to his Tesla Model S.

We love seeing these creative Model S makeovers. We also recently featured a Tesla Model X adorned with original graffiti art in Finland. As Tesla’s electric vehicles become increasingly popular on the road, it’s getting harder to make your car stand out from the crowd. So we salute Tesla owners who make their Model S non-conformist… and a little bit more distinctive to reflect their individuality. We’re looking forward to seeing more pics from other owners — if you want to show us your transformed Tesla, feel free to connect.

*Editor’s Note: EVANNEX, which obviously if one just read this article, also sells aftermarket gear for Teslas, has kindly allowed us to share some of its content with our readers.

Like the storm trooper model the best. The lighted red logo in the back is great. Generally not a big fan of aftermarket upgrades with changed plastic/CF fronts or backs as they make cars look “ghetto” to me.

“…aftermarket upgrades with changed plastic/CF fronts or backs as they make cars look ‘ghetto’ to me.”

Yes, it’s amazing how much money some people spend to uglify a beautiful car! 🙄

Some really nice aftermarket “car bling” here. I particularly like the lighted “T” and the lighted “T ≡ S L A” logo.

I don’t care for a lot of the major or sometimes radical aftermarket Model S mods seen in previous InsideEVs articles. A lot of those Tesla owners clearly have a lot more money than taste!

But all of the minor mods shown here are things I find attractive, and wouldn’t at all mind showing off on my own Model S — if I ever become rich and lucky enough to own one!

Caliper covers make the car look cheap. Tesla already has sport brakes with a ‘fixed’ brake caliper design. Caliper covers are meant for non-sporty ‘floating calipers’ to have that sport brake design. If you want to customize your brake calipers, do it right and have them professionally painted. Don’t make it look like you went shopping at the import section at your local auto parts store.

The guy with fake-badged “P500D” — what a goober. Plus his car comes off looking like it is struggling to become the Batmobile (from the bottom up).
