Fixed car pictures #2: Toroidion tuning

When I saw the tail end of the Larte design Tesla Model S my first thought was that obviously some people are too stupid to grasp the idea of a powerful non-combustion-engined car, so even Tesla body kits have to have something resembling exhausts in the rear bumper…

The story even mentions they added sound effects “appropriate for a vehicle that delivers as much as 700 horsepower”. My quess is: “ngngngngngngngngngngng BLAM brumbrumbrumbrum neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee bluf neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee bluf bluf neeeeEEEEEEEEEEE!”

So, the Toroidion… The pictures of the car need minor adjustment to “better appreciate a vehicle that delivers as much as 1300 horsepower” (What the fuck’s wrong with kilowatt anyway?) Here it is, the Pallokorva design aftermarket body kit for the Toroidion 1MW complete with dual fog machines and appropriate sounds:

Maybe now even the good people at Jalopnik can see that the car is supposed to be fucking powerful. =D

Fixed car pictures #1

One thing I have been wondering for years is the quality of car pictures (or the lack of…), especially the ones taken in shows. Either the photographers are distracted super easily, or they collectively have bad luck with some secret photo-bomber community.

Most pictures barely show half of the car and usually the car is the least prominently displayed item in the pic. I hear the Chinese are trying to fix the problem (http://edition.cnn.com/2015/04/18/asia/china-cars/) but that doesn’t counter the fact that thousands of older pictures (and new ones taken outside of China) are essentially broken.

So I wanted to help and started with a picture taken in Turku, Finland. I’m not sure what the photographer has been shooting, but (s)he’s managed to capture a lot of a pretty nice looking Tesla Model S:
