Bike Rack? Have the dimensions of the Model S changed from 2014?


Dec 20, 2015
Atlanta, GA
I have a Model S manufactured in March 2015. I bought a rack designed for the Model S. In fact, the description on the packing slip reads "TESLA MODEL S P85 4DR HATCH 06/14-". The bad news is it doesn't fit. I took a lot of pics, contacted the manufacturer (Rhino-Rack) and the retailer both of whom were supportive/helpful through a frustrating experience. It appears that the dimensions of the TESLA have changed by a few millimeters. One of the things that seems to support this is that the rack offered on the Shop Tesla motors shows a WhispBar rack for sale. But the Whispbar site doesn't show any models for a 2015 only a 2014. Does anyone know for sure about the dimensions between 2014 and 2015?

I'm not 100% sure what's going on. I suggest being careful when ordering a rack for a 2015.
