2017 Tesla Model S

Elon Musk is having one hell of a month. His company, Tesla, unveiled their brand new Model 3 to high praise, SpaceX successfully landed a rocket on a floating platform, and now the web is abuzz with news of an updated 2017 Tesla Model S.

This revamped model adds a bevy of improvements to what Motor Trend called the “Car of the year” back in 2013. Along with a slight update to the body’s design – most notably the nose and headlights have been given a look similar to that of the Model X’s – the car is going to be equipped with a HEPA air filtration system that is so efficient it can be switched on to a ‘Bioweapon Defense Mode’. For a faster charge, the car company has upgraded its charger to a 48-amp system, and for a longer driving range, the entry level battery has been given a 75-kWh battery. So pretty much what we are looking at here is a car that can protect you from weaponized gas and outrun an attack, and all in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Prices start at $76,500.
