Shaq Gets Tesla Model S Customized (Video)

Tesla vehicles are extremely popular among the Hollywood, basketball, and rap elite. Shaq fits the bill on all three counts, so of course he has a Tesla (probably more than one*). Our friends at Unplugged Performance recently had the honor of customizing an aging Model S of his. Have a watch:

On the day of the Model 3 unveiling, before spending a couple of hours on the Tesla test tracking filming and photographing the Model 3 for the first time, we actually toured Unplugged Performance’s facility (which is on the same lot as SpaceX and the Tesla design studio). If you want a closer look at that, see: “Interviewing Unplugged Performance Founder Ben Schaffer (Exclusive Video Interview).”


*If Shaq doesn’t have more than one Tesla, he really needs to pick up his game and catch up to shorty Akon, who rocks Teslas like a cleantech superstar. See these CleanTechnica exclusives: “Akon = Tesla Fanboy (Exclusive Video)” and “Akon’s Solar Inspiration, Akon Lighting Africa’s Roots, & Tesla Love.”

Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it!! So, we've decided to completely nix paywalls here at CleanTechnica. But...
