    Seriously, this one might fit Model S center console location. Just sit on the Yacht floor.

    Dometic WAECO International - Thermoelectric coolers

    Waeco TB-08 Console Cooler - 8 Litre - YouTube

    Waeco TB-08G Fridge / Warmer. 8L 12V - RV World New Zealand

    Adding two cup holders too, in a location that do not affect your original armrest.
    My Tesla should deliver later this month, anyone can help to check if this little fridge fits that location, we can consider group buy it.
    I saw a NZ website selling it for 185 NZD only.

    They have an office in Hong Kong at TST gateway!

    If anyone could help to measure the free space at the center console location, and confirm it fits, I would start a group buy :D. I don't have my tesla yet, can't measure it.

    Unless you go picnic and camping very often, I also find a OK or 7-11 within few minutes drive.

    Remember a cooler is different from a fridge. It will lower the temperature to about 15º - 20º below ambient temperature, and it takes time. So better to pre-cool your drinks in your kitchen frdge.

    Given the dimensions listed here for the CCI:

    Product Specs CCI Aftermarket Tesla Accessories, Center Console Insert | Aftermarket Accessories for Tesla Model S
    SIZE: CCI max nominal dimensions are 23.5”L x 10.5”W x 9”D (596mm L x 266mm W x 228mm D)

    And here for the WAECO:

    Dometic WAECO International - Thermoelectric coolers
    Dimensions (WxHxD): 442 x 298 x 200 mm

    It is at least in the ball park for size.

    I suspect that the only way to know for sure would be to try it and see how it fits. Does the local agent have any in stock?

    Ben & Jerry's has beat you to it. Of course, you might not need quite as much capacity.

    I have seen one before very similar to this and I was thinking to order one and put it the back as a rear centre console.

    But just afraid would be too noisy to put it inside .

    I think its worth the slight fan noise. Also you can take these out with you. So if you go for a picnic, even unplugged, they can help keep drinks insulated.
