2023 Tesla Model S Exterior and Dimensions

2023 Model S Exterior

You'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the current Model S from an older model. The curvy sedan looks both humble and slightly assertive, with aggressive haunches and a sleek hood. Overall, the Model S is still a handsome vehicle, but it is beginning to show its age. Porsche's Taycan offers a wide variety of customization options, not to mention interesting styling that moves away from the now almost-defunct sedan. The lights are LED all around, as are the fog lights. 19-inch alloys are standard, but 21-inch alloys that reduce the range are available as an option. A tinted glass roof is standard.

Porsche had the Model S squarely in its sights while designing the Taycan. The dimensions are extremely close, with the Taycan only being 0.6 inches shorter in length than the 196-inch Model S. The Tesla has a longer 116.5 inch wheelbase, which is more important in the grander scheme of things, as a longer wheelbase usually translates into a more interior room. It's 77.3 inches wide excluding the side mirrors and 56.9 inches tall.

This is a heavy car with a curb weight of 4,561 pounds. One of the main downsides of an EV is the sheer weight of the batteries, but in the case of Tesla, they're mounted low down in the wheelbase to create a low center of gravity.

Exterior Colors

When it comes to exterior color options, Tesla keeps it simple. There are only five colors on the palette, and all of them do an excellent job of highlighting the exterior design elements. Pearl White Multicoat is the only no-cost option, while Solid Black, Midnight Silver Metallic, and Deep Blue Metallic cost $1,500 each. The $2,500 Red Multi-Coat looks sensational, contrasting nicely with the black exterior accents. For the full red/dark contrast effect, you have to pay an additional $4,500 for the 21-inch Arachnid Wheels.
