    These are the first pictures of Tesla Model S with Roof box from the norwegian company www.skiguard.no. I will definitely buy on of these for my Tesla.

    While I agree I will probably get one of these, I most definately will not be leaving it on more than necessary. For both range as well as estethic reasons :)

    Unfortunately, they don't have an English version to their site. I am not really interested in the box, though I am interested in the roof rack. Do they offer that as a stand alone option?

    Looks good! Without SuperChargers I won't be able to take Model S on ski vacation to Austria or Switzerland, so I'll have to wait for those first.

    I agree ... (+1) ... I want a roof rack. I would use this when taking all four kids to the beach and having to store five bags of clothes (I would be the only one possessing a Y chromosome for said journey) somewhere other than my foot-space. This one looks sweet. I would not be surprised if it is pushing $650-700.

    I guess it can also serve as a shade for the pano roof :) Looks great!

    Yes, they do offer the roof rack as a stand alone option. The one used in the picture is prorack (http://www.prorackgear.com/)

    Don't think so. Those pics up-thread look like Yakima Whispbar rails.

    My only regret in not getting the panoramic roof is the lack of mount points on the solid roof.

    Ha! Definitely been a few August days in PHX already where I have wished the sun weren't smiling on me from above. I've been considering cannibalizing a windshield sunshade and stuffing it up there.

    I agree and that's why I want them. Whispbar did not fit the MS at my last check.

    Well, the person from skiguard who put on the roof rack and the roof box told me the brand of the roof rack is prorack.

    Interesting. I went to the prorack site and they don't have the MS listed as an option. Can you find out what prorack version they used?

    Just saw this. Looks good, wondering if any one is using it and how many pairs of skis it can hold, does it hold two bikes well etc.
