Leave it to a maker of Tesla after-market products to generate a waiting list for a cup holder. Florida-based Teslaccessories is entering the extremely nascent Tesla after-market product industry with just one product: a center console insert for the Model S. Or CCI for those in the know.

With stitched leather and carbon composite components, the CCI not only offers storage but a place to set down a champagne glass for those who want to toast their good fortune (no, we don't advise doing this while driving).

The console insert reflects "a design that maintains Tesla's low profile minimalist approach and adopts the shapes and curves that exist throughout the Model S interior," Teslaccessories says on its website. So far, no price is listed for the CCI, but prospective buyers can, in true Tesla fashion, put their names on a waiting list.

Cheers.

      Definitely a labor of love. I've ordered one of these! Though I love the minimalist look and feel, I just need something that can hold some of my stuff. Plus, it's so handy to have some convenient storage where I can hold some of the things I need to take with me. The smartphone holder is also a nice feature where it can also be charging as I am traveling. Finally, just having cupholders in a more convenient spot is so nice. Now it won't be so awkward. Not sure what purrpullberra is referring to in terms of the look. I think it's designed to fit seamlessly into the car; not be something flashy that sticks out. I want it to look like it's actually a part of the vehicle; not something I decided to stick in afterwards. I mean it looks like it was always supposed to be there, which is what I want.

      It seems well done, I guess. I expect more people will want something Much nicer looking than will want this as is. I don't mean to sound negative because it really seems to be a labor of love(?). At least a huge labor. But it looks very pedestrian which is exactly the wrong adjective a Tesla ModelS accessory should have. I know it will be easy for someone else to recover (or resurface or recolor) this and build off of the hard work measuring and extruding or whatever that has been put in to it. I think it looks awful compared to the interior without it. The slide cover looks very 80's GM to me. That said, I hope he sells enough to make it all worth while.

      This accessory was made by a Model S owner that saw there were people that wanted a center console and so he took the time to make one. The website gives an indication of the lengthy process he went through to do it properly. Very impressive really.

      Anyone making a guess on the cost. I say north of $750, most likely $1000.

        you mean price, right? As in the demand is high and the clientele are wealthy, so these accessories fetch a high price. The cost can be as low as a few dollars.

        yeah, it's over $1000 if you want it to match your interior. waste of money for a 3rd cup holder. honestly, for $1000 i'd rather pee into a water bottle.

      Sliding door cover, just like my wife's Civic! She gets *two* cupholders, though.
