Modifying personal vehicles isn’t new by any means. Fine-tuning a ride has been in high gear for decades. Some wanted to juice up the performance and handling, leading to aftermarket suspension, turbochargers, and exhaust systems. Others customized cosmetics with paint, aerodynamic spoilers, and tires and rims. And, of course, many did both.
- People enjoy modifying their cars for personalization.
- Specializing in high-end modifications for gas-powered cars, Novitec has turned its attention to Tesla and now includes the Model 3 in its portfolio.
- As electric cars hit the road, the market for aftermarket enhancements will grow, and more companies will offer the service and on a wider variety of brands.
As cars go electric, people will still want to express their personality and tastes by making changes to what the manufacturer rolls off the production line. A German aftermarket company called Novitec, which has a track record modifying Ferraris, McLarens and Lamborghinis, turned its attention to Tesla.
Limited ways to differentiate Tesla models
The company started by tuning the Tesla Model S and Model X. Now it offers the opportunity to make the Tesla Model 3 your own. One of the issues that’s rumored to bother Tesla owners is the lack of paint color options. Originally with 7 colors in the catalogue for the Model 3, Tesla reduced that to 5 to streamline production and costs. And, buyers only can choose from two wheel designs. With the lack of ways to stand out from the crowd, Novitec comes to the rescue.

So many options
The outfit offers a smorgasbord of enhancements. With at least 72 wheel colors with brush or polished finishing for the 21-inch Novitec NV2 five double-spoke allow wheels, there’s sure to be one that fits your preferences. Additional modifications can include a rocker panel, front lip spoiler, real lip spoiler and diffuser. For those who want more sports car handling, Novitec can also alter the suspension by lowering springs, as well as replacing the shocks to bring the car even closer to the ground.
And, Novitec didn’t leave out the cabin for personalization. It will outfit the interior in almost any leather color or Alcantara faux suede that suits your fancy. Choices, choices. However, be warned, dressing up your Model 3 won’t come cheap. You can have fun configuring one here.
WHY THIS MATTERS
Novitec offers Tesla owners the ability to customize their cars. Although the future of transportation is moving from gas-fueled to electric-powered, people will still want to modify their vehicles. Novitec is one of many that will surely get in on this growing market.
