Modding a Tesla Model 3 is nothing new, but installing 10-foot-tall wagon wheels on the vehicle most certainly is. WhistlinDiesel wanted to see just how it would drive with these bizarre wheels and not just for regular testing, as their goal was to drive upside down. Let’s just say that nobody should be trying this at home, or anywhere for that matter.
The Tesla Model S Plaid is the fastest vehicle that the company produces, powered by one motor in the front axle and two motors at each rear axle. This tri-motor setup is good for 1,020 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 60 mph in just over 2-seconds, while topping out at an electronically limited 166 mph.

What you see here is the latest Tesla Cybertruck prototype, which could be the finalized design, complete with a new mirror design. The triangular side mirrors match the geometric shape of the body and ditches the previous rectangular shape. Production is set to begin at Gigafactory Texas this summer, with volume starting next year.
Called Teslamino, this custom-built Tesla Model S pickup truck is a good substitute for the Cybertruck, as the latter is yet to go into full production. Since this was built back in 2019, it’s not a Model S Plaid, just an a Model S 85 making 362 hp and 326 lb-ft of torque, or plenty for getting around town or hauling something.
Elon Musk has been known to offer some unusual items across his companies, and his latest are limited edition Tesla Sipping Glasses, which come with a matching metal stand. The shape of the glasses were inspired by the Tesla Tequila bottle’s unique silhouette, and each one is designed with angular contours as well as an engraved Tesla logo.
