Developed by Darkside Scientific, this ingenious paint job lets drivers custom-animate their Tesla's exterior. The exquisite color isn't always lit up, however. By turning off the electric current, the Tesla looks like just a normal car.
This paint job can be seen in the film "Racing Extinction."
While the electroluminescent paint and the rear projector are pretty sweet additions to the Tesla, the modifications wouldn't have been complete without using the vehicle's ample storage up front.
In "Racing Extinction," the FLIR (forward looking infrared) camera mod is attached to the Tesla's front trunk. It's also equipped with a special optic fiber, the FLIR SC8300, that allows the filmmakers to show the amount of CO2 emitted from any source.
This might be the easiest way to place a license plate on your Tesla without having to drill a hole in that beloved machine of yours. And with more than 30 states requiring a front license plate, the magnetic holder might just be the safest way to avoid a ticket, too.
In 2013, EVAnnex created a center console insert for the Model S that lets you add extra storage and multiple cupholders. The addition also allows the choice of the deck finish and upholstery color. The insert starts at $395.
Brabus, known mostly for its work on Mercedes-Benz's AMG performance models, decided to put a twist on the Tesla. Brabus didn't focus on the performance of the car. Instead the company upgraded the aesthetics and functionality of the popular vehicle.
One of the coolest mods in Brabus' finely-tuned Tesla is its inductive phone charger. The center console comes with a pad equipped to wirelessly charge your smartphone. That is, if your cell has the functionality.
Wirelessly charging your phone isn't even the coolest part of Brabus' center console. This Tesla includes integrated cupholders that can be set to cool or heat your drink. You'll never have to worry about your cup of coffee getting cold again.
Brabus also bolted up its 21-inch "Platinum Edition" alloy wheels to give this supercar even more elegance. The modified wheels are lighter than Tesla's stock wheels, which makes the car even more limber on the road.
One cost-effective solution to to help add some excitement to a Tesla's existing paint job is to wrap it in carbon-fiber vinyl. This isn't your typical wrap. This modification allows car owners to avoid the loooong process of re-painting their car by transforming the exterior into a luxurious style of their choice.
Many Tesla owners feel the need to upgrade the interior in their new car. T Sportline offers plush interiors borrowed from other popular sports cars. The Tesla tuner company offers leather, suede and Alcantara interiors inspired by Bentley and Ferrari.
The Strut collection is one of the quickest ways to upgrade the luxury in the Tesla Model S. The full Strut collection, valued at a whopping $14,250, includes a carbon-fiber grille, a rear spoiler, Icon T wheels and upgraded side trim.
Adding a carbon-fiber rear diffuser to a Tesla Model S will undoubtedly help its performance on the road -- at least aesthetically. Unplugged Performance, makers of the upgraded rear diffuser, also claims the unit improves the Model S' aerodynamics.
