Yes, you can totally mod electric cars
Matt Farah and Hagerty walk us through Unplugged Performance's corner-carving beast of a Tesla Model 3 Performance.
In an era where companies consistently bump into the limits of technology, it's sometimes better to start attacking those weird niches than try to be the next ground-breaking thing. However, in strange twists of fate, appealing to those few and far between might actually be what thrusts you into automotive stardom. In an episode of Hagerty's "Modified" hosted by Matt Farah, Tesla tuner, Unplugged Performance, might prove just that with their expertise in doing the unthinkable: tuning electric cars.
Unplugged Performance is the leader for high-quality, premium upgrades and customization for Tesla Vehicles, including exterior parts and custom interiors.
Since 2013, Unplugged Performance has made a name in the game no one ever thought would be played. They currently offer an extensive suite of chassis parts and complete packages for just about every Tesla on sale and have tested the limits of their engineering through the crucible of motorsports. Hell, just check out their wicked Pikes Peak car and its insane run to the clouds. They even reportedly host track days for Tesla owners to raise awareness for EV performance and allow them to test their might.
As explained in the video, the idea of a modified Tesla is definitely an obscure proposition, one that even I wouldn't have imagined being something anyone would want. By the looks of a busy shop and detailed media coverage, however, it seems as though the demand is truly there for those possibly migrating from sport sedans and not wanting to sacrifice capability when the urge to drop the hammer strikes hard. That means upgraded cooling, adjustable suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes fit for a Ferrari, and Big Bertha wheel/tire setups. You know, the usual criteria for the average electric car shopper.
