Tesla Model S Coupe Gets Sportier Rendering

Tesla Model S CoupeIf you want a two door Tesla Model S, you have two options; start a letter-writing campaign to Tesla HQ, or plunk down $35,000 on a two-door conversion. It seems like an obvious move on Tesla’s part, especially after this latest rendering adds a hint of sporty flair to the electric car.

Riding lower to the ground and with a more aggressive front fascia, this Model S Coupe rendering by X-Tomi Design hits all the right notes. It’s more aggressive than other Tesla coupe renderings we’ve seen, something performance enthusiasts can appreciate. Elon Musk has been insistent that the Model S is less luxury car and more about performance, and in the P85+ variant drivers can zip from 0 to 60 MPH in about 4.2 seconds. A coupe version could potentially add even more more performance, or even all-wheel drive to the equation.

There have been rumors of a larger battery pack in the works, and Tesla has already added a performance suspension and brake package for the Model S. More performance and fewer doors seems like a winning combination for Tesla, but with most of their resources tied up in the Tesla Model X, it could be awhile.

    Ridiculous faux “scoops” on the lower fascia may be in fashion on ICE vehicles, but I don’t think that would fly on an EV; It would ruin the Cd.

      If the coupe continues to weigh north of 4,000lbs., you’ll want those front fascia brake cooling ducts.

        The current model doesn’t have them. Big disks, I guess.

        Or was that snark? I couldn’t tell from your tone of voice.
