2024 Tesla Model S Plaid spotted in Stealth Gray

The 2024 Tesla Model S Plaid is one of the quickest cars money can buy, and while it’s expensive, its price is only a fraction of other cars that offer similar performance. Recently, I saw the high-performance EV in Stealth Gray, which is its only no-cost color option.

Design & features

The 2024 Tesla Model S Plaid may not be fresh on the market, but I think its sleek and sporty exterior is still appealing. I would’ve liked some more styling differences from the regular 2024 Tesla Model S, though. At the moment, only a spoiler and Plaid badge on the liftgate are its exclusive exterior features.

The 2024 Tesla Model S Plaid has a futuristic and minimalist interior that aligns well with its character. I like the slim dashboard, the low-key instrument cluster, the 17-inch touchscreen infotainment system that can be tilted left or right, and the curvy center console.

The 2024 Model S Plaid features a steering wheel as standard, but customers can specify it with a yoke steering optionally, for an additional USD 1,000. This particular unit has the yoke steering, and I think no other element of the interior contributes to the futuristic vibe as much as it does. That said, I’d stick to the traditional default for ease of use and practicality.

Another expensive option in this 2024 Model Plaid is a Cream color scheme worth USD 2,000. It’s a combination of beige and black, and I think the former gives the cabin a rich look. I like the carbon fiber inlays in the dashboard, center console, and door panels, as they remind me I’m sitting in a high-performance car.

Specifications

The Tesla Model S Plaid sports three motors that generate a whopping 1,020 horsepower. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.99 seconds (with the first foot of rollout subtracted) and achieve an impressive top speed of 200 mph. Yet, it delivers an EPA-estimated range of 359 miles. If you go for the 21-inch Arachnid wheels instead of the standard 19-inch Tempest wheels (seen on the Stealth Gray unit here), that figure drops to 320 miles. Both wheels come wrapped with summer tires for maximum performance. The optional wheels cost an additional USD 4,500,

Price

The 2024 Tesla Model S Plaid retails at USD 89,990 (excl. USD 1,390 destination fee and USD 250 order fee).
