Unplugged Performance Amps Up Tesla Model 3 With New Body Kit Offerings

Unplugged Performance has brought its Model 3 body kit offerings out from hiding and the months of effort the team has poured into them have clearly paid off. The body kids transform the tame looks of Model 3 into an aggressive, race-ready stance that leaves no doubt what its intentions are.

CEO of Unplugged Performance Ben Schaffer shared on Facebook that they have plans for 3 different exterior packages. “That second image [inserted below] is our more conservative spec (lip spoilers) whereas the image I’ve lead with [above] is our highest performance version (replacement bumpers and a more aggressive racing rear wing). Aside from our complete car program we will be releasing a wide range of upgrades for individual purchase.”

Even with the Tesla Model 3 already having an aggressive stance, the Unplugged Performance kits are able to transform the look and stance of the vehicle into something else entirely. It morphs from an everyday commuter car into a weekend-ready showcar that could take down a Porsche, a BMW M4, or something even faster.

With the all-wheel drive and performance versions of the car yet to be officially announced, it is anyone’s guess just how fast a production Model 3 will end up being. If history is any guide, it will be Ludicrous — or maybe just one notch down from Ludicrous. Ridonkulous?

As with any aesthetic change, the body kits won’t be for everyone, but the simple fact that tuner-focused modifications are starting to come out for electric vehicles should get anyone who wants them to become mainstream excited. Every niche that EVs move into is one more niche, one more driver that is not driving a gasmobile, one less consumer at the gas pumps with a tailpipe polluting our planet.

That is progress no matter how you measure it. In the case of Unplugged Performance, they measure success in ounces and grams cut from the vehicle to make it that much lighter and faster than a stock Tesla. The body kits can be preordered at Unplugged Performance’s Model 3 page.
