2015 Tesla S – Exterior
Designed by Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla model S is easily recognized by its dynamic, aggressive grille, elongated headlights and discreet fog lights. Sleek, sculpted design increases the downforce, thus making it highly stable in all driving styles and conditions, and also makes the airline and wind resistance minimal and higher speeds easily achievable. All Glass Panoramic Roof provides a convertible-like driving experience with the ability to open it wider than any other sedan’s panoramic roof, and while closed it helps keep the cabin comfortable by blocking 81% of heat and 100% of UV rays. Rear side is accentuated with chrome details and powerfully looking rear lights.
This is one of the parts where the newest 2015 Tesla S really shines. Quiet powertrain in combination with detailed noise engineering gives this model the sound dynamics of a recording studio.
