I like that they've removed the front 'grille', it looks much cleaner without one. The rest of it is too boy racer and if they are going to add on pointless bonnet air ducts they may as well stick on a huge 'exhaust pipe'

Those air ducts could be for the brakes. With such a heavy car the brakes are sure to heat up quite fast at the track.

That orange version looks surprisingly good. I wonder how one gets to the battery posts with no nose cone?

They could have done what Tesla should have done, put some remote terminals or a plug easily accessible in the frunk, or somewhere else easily accessible.

Personally, I find this interior interesting:

Did they say anything about the suspension and handling upgrades? To me this looks like nothing more than a body kit. Seems odd to put air scoops on a Frunk lol. I do like the front end, but I also like my nosecone. ;)

Rims are ugly...Too much like Mustang I guess...Front is nice....Side are nice...Rear is nice....So far nothing we cant do ourselves....


Not horrible, but I think Steve might be assuming we all are like a typical Mustang customer. He seems to have applied the same basic styling "upgrades" he did to a mid-80's Mustang as well as every subsequent one to create this new look. I see the typical demographic of a Tesla owner being a different demographic. The yet unannounced performance increases better be out of this world if he wants to move many of them.

And if they do make actual drivetrain and/or firmware alterations, what happens the next time Tesla issues an over-the-air update?

Yeah, whither true bolsters?!

I read recently that Tesla will be offering a front seat modification for those who want more bolster, and it will be possible to modify existing seats at the service centers. They're doing it by lowering the center part of the seat cushion.

Where did you read this? I've been trying to figure out my own solution for the seats.
