Quite a few aftermarket car tuners are now offering Tesla Model S modifications. There are a few accessories and maybe some light modifications, like aftermarket wheels, that are worth looking into, but for the most part, I wouldn’t recommend changing much of anything on the Model S for multiple reasons.
Not the least of which is aesthetic. Of course that’s just my personal opinion, but the stock Model S design is simple and elegant. It also has a segment crushing drag coefficient. I wouldn’t dare change that.

Seems like someone couldn’t decide between a Corvette & a NSX. Poor choice either way.
bodykit != tuning
Yeah I suppose at that point you should just call it a body kit.
I’ve seen worse…. All in all not that bad.
Are you daft?
