Right now, the Tesla Model Y (which might be crowned the best-selling vehicle overall in Europe at the end of 2023!) costs from $50,490 at home in America because only the dual-motor AWD versions are available for one reason or another. And if you don't want the Long Range, then the Model Y Performance goes for $54,490.
As a counterpoint, the 2023 Tesla Model 3 RWD starts from $40,240, followed by the dual-motor AWDs at $47,240 and $53,240, respectively. Now, some might think that waiting for the refreshed Model 3 Highland could be the better option. Well, not necessarily, as we heard from China that the facelifted series would be less powerful, some changes are impacting ergonomics, and Tesla may have cut additional corners to lower the operating costs and support its favorable pricing strategy.
Plus, there is one more argument to get yourself a pre-facelift Tesla Model 3. Oddly enough, it comes from the imaginative realm of digital car content creators. More precisely, a virtual automotive designer, better known as a.c.g_design on social media, recently started collaborating with an aftermarket company. Canada-based Rax Performance "manufactures and distributes a wide range of accessories, from racing body kits to rare carbon parts."
They do that for all the major international brands, from Audi to Volkswagen and Toyota to Dodge, plus they also promise excellent commercial practices like a 30-day return policy and "swift delivery to your doorstep in three to five days, worldwide." Tesla is also included among them, with options for all four models that make up the 'S3XY' lineup. And, with a bit of help from the parallel universes of car CGI, the focus is now on a crimson Tesla Model 3.
While the vehicle appears to be a rendering, not the real deal, the carbon fiber parts that make up the body kit are actually real – including the carbon fiber front lip, side skirts, rear spoiler, and rear diffuser. With them, especially in this contrasting red hue of the body, the Tesla Model 3 looks fabulous when clad in carbon fiber. Additionally, the pixel master further spiced up the EV with a nice set of black aftermarket wheels rocking Michelin Pilot Sport tires and red contrasting Brembo brake calipers.
