Aero' Camera-Mirrors - v2
Here is one of our favorite modifications for the
Model S. Each mod' is intended to increase the vehicle's aerodynamic
We generally understand that exterior door mirrors reduce
the aerodynamic efficiency and subsequent vehicle range by +/- 5%.
Since, in 2012, the NHTSA did not allow manufacturers to sell new
vehicles with this modification, we
decided to retrofit a set of LCD camera rear-view mirrors ourselves.
Our initial design goal was to keep all components 'inside' the vehicle
(v1); however, after a few months of testing we decided that
it would be best to mount the cameras
on the exterior. v2 is currently installed and operating and working
wonderfully, ten (10) years and counting (c2023).
