The Tesla Killer


Designer Dejan Hristov calls it the “Tesla Killer” but it is, in fact, still a Tesla! I think what he means is that it aims to replace the current Model S by giving it a few far-out features and a boost in range and power.

Aesthetically, it’s arguably less refined than the existing S and almost appears to have an aftermarket body kit with exaggerated fenders and design details like a continues line break that encircles the entire car. Up top, the roof is an entire solar panel that provides supplemental charging power to the battery system. Under the hood, it sports Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors with a maximum power output 255kw each, producing 1367hp… that’s almost double that of the current top-of-the-line Model S!

For enhanced aerodynamics, it completely ditches the side mirrors for hidden cameras that give a more comprehensive view of surroundings. Perhaps the most interesting feature is the new digital nose. It not only displays the iconic Tesla logo on a screen, but it indicates real-time road conditions to passing drivers. A snowflake might indicate snow ahead while a caution symbol could indicate a crash. It’s a cool twist on the front end that we’d love to see come to life!
