Tesla Unveils Camo’d Model S For Veterans Day


Veteran's Day Tesla Model S Teaser

Veteran’s Day Tesla Model S Teaser

In honor of those who’ve served in the U.S. Armed Forces, Tesla Motors created this unique camo’d Model S.

Among automakers, Tesla is perhaps the most supportive of veterans, so it’s no surprise then to see Tesla create something special to honor those who’ve served our country.

The message from Tesla Motors:

“A heartfelt Veterans Day thank you to all who have served. ‪#‎TeslaVets‬ ‪#‎VeteransDay‬

We at InsideEVs would like to take a second to honor and give thanks to all the men and women who’ve served in our nation’s armed forces.

This veterans video by Guinness titled “Empty Chair” is perhaps one of the most touching beer commercials ever released:

“Guinness “Empty Chair” salutes the character of a community as they honor one of their own who is out of sight, but not out of mind. They remind us that a true test of character is what you do when no one’s looking.”

    What Model S? — I can’t see it.

    Next, they need to make one in the same style as the Local Motors Rally Fighter.

  3. Spec9 says:

    Apparently Tesla makes an attempt to hire vets for their workers. A nice gesture.

  4. Phr3d says:

    nahh.. Lift it and mount mud-sucker rubber, LOL. (and mebbe an extra battery in the shape of a petrol-can mounted on the back deck)

    Nice job Tesla.. thanks

    True war criminals are those who are following the orders and pulling the trigger.

    This is also ironic because most of the recent US wars have been fought in order to ensure access to Middle East oil resources and therefore to prevent near future instability of oil price. With electric car revolution there is no longer need for United States to wage wars around the oil fields and therefore there is no need to create more veterans.

    So basically Tesla is here saying, sorry you Veterans but you fought and died for nothing, because the near future of transportation is after all not based on Middle East oil but rather all transportation will be electric.

      And you are an ignorant simpleton with a school boys understanding of geo-politics.

      1. Brighton Noing says:

        You are right, it is more complicated. All of those veterans were created not just for oil but because W. thought he would be more electable as a war president.

        How about a day, or at least a decorated Tesla dedicated to the hundreds on thousands in the streets all over the world that tried to prevent these wars.

      2. Open-Mind says:

        “school boys understanding”

        Bingo. Because this anti-USA propaganda is exactly what is being taught in schools around the world, including in the USA.

        1. James says:

          Jouni is a well-respected poster here and I like him a lot.

          We’re all free here to voice our opinion and that is what many died to protect in freedom bastions around the world. Many Europeans really don’t care, or were never taught about World War II. So apathy reigns. They see our current president on the worldwide apology tour, and call what we do “war mongering” while their own political leaders ( Hello, Germany, France and Russia ) use backdoor tactics to sidestep sanctions that have been placed on the Saddam Hussein’s of this world who heaped inhumanities upon hundreds of thousands, if not millions of souls to posess power and wealth.

          My dad is 89. He remembers WWII. We remember my uncle who bailed out of a bomber that was sliced in half by a German fighter plane – he was a tailgunner, so he had no parachute – the pod he sat in was too small. So when others jumped out at 10,000 ft., he was crawling around looking for a chute! He and the top-gunner found one remaining chute at the same time! Their eyes met and he shoved the parachute to his buddy who flung it over his shoulder and lept out. This left my uncle up the poop creek with no paddle. He nearly went deaf as the wind speed noise was grueling – yet he saw a chute, grabbed it and jumped. He counted a couple seconds and hit a hayfield somewhere near the border of Germany. Bruised and broken, he woke up to a farmer with a pitchfork to his throat. Soon Nazi soldiers took him to prison camp where he was abused until the end of the war.

          Europeans should watch the Normandy landing in the movie, Saving Private Ryan. It’s very realistic and caused many gray-tops in the theater I attended to cry outwardly. Then they should Google the graveyards at Normandy filled with tens of thousands of us war-mongers who literally gave their lives to give their country back to them, at no charge!

          Then, and only then should they rail at Bush, Clinton, Reagan or whomever they wish to place blame that the free world has become an addict of oil. I myself was raised to love Europeans and our various cultures that came from there. I cannot, however, stomach Euros who grew up in a free world that often paints the USA as some “bad guy”.

          If you research the Gulf War II, France, Germany and Russia name-called America because they had secretly been in talks with Saddaam about modernizing his oil infrastructure. This was illegal, and during NATO-installed sanctions. When America stepped in to quell Saddaam, we put a stake into their efforts at dealing with a Nazi-esque tyrant for profit!

          This is all well documented and no rumor-ville, conspiracy theory stuff. It’s sad how oil turns friend against friend.

      As a veteran myself, I can say for myself, I joined the military to defend my country and it’s constitution. Being in the service however, does not give you the option to pick and choose which causes you think are worthy of supporting. That decision is made by our leadership and handed down to the troops.

      I am certain it works that way with every military organization in the world. Some are just more draconian in how they treat their military members and any captives, assuming they are allowed to take prisoners instead of killing them all.

      One of the great things about the USA is the freedom to disagree with the way it is being run and being able to vote for someone you would prefer. It’s not perfect, but I am unaware of any place that has a fundamentally better system of government than a democracy. That said, you too are free to disagree.

  6. Mike says:

    Jouni valkonen,
    Your an idiot. There’s always people such as yourself who I’m sure never served a day in the military giving your worthless opinion. If you think all those veterans are fighting for nothing and dying for nothing, you likely need to leave this great country of the United states of America and head back to yours.

    1. mhpr262 says:

      There are quite a few veterans who have come to believe they fought and died for nothing over the past couple of years, should they leave the country too?

      1. Dave K. says:

        Whether the war was just or not doesn’t change the commitment and sacrifice of those who served, not an appropriate venue for this discussion.

      Please keep in mind that not everyone who reads / participates on this website, is from America. And these people are just as entitled to their own world view, as much as you are entitled to yours…

      Fighting over land, food, or even energy sources– has historically been a world changing human activity for many millennia. But with each conflict, there were at least two sides. Sometimes hearing it, can give you a wider understanding of your own role:

        Random factoid over last month: 360,000 pagevisits outside US…quite a bit

        1. Kacey Green says:

          Sorry to nitpick but factoid isn’t a small juicy fact nugget. “A factoid is a questionable or spurious (unverified, false, or fabricated) statement presented as a fact, but without supporting evidence, although the term can have other meanings.”

            …you are my least favorite commenter today, (=

            1. Phr3d says:

              Well -I- learned sumpin’ today, Merriam Webster:

              Full Definition of FACTOID
              : an invented fact believed to be true because it appears in print
              : a briefly stated and usually trivial fact


              1. Jay Cole says:

                I stand by my usage, lol

                1. Kacey Green says:

                  The second one is new and came about after in the 80s and 90s the cable news networks kept using it that way. Making factoid a factoid itself, “this is now the definition because we saw it in print (far too many times)”. It’s like all those times you go to look up a word and the use it in its own definition, how helpful is that?

                  The word then loses context and good luck to anyone who has English as an n+1 language.
