Looking for your daily fix of Tesla vibes, but not sure where to find inspiration? There’s no better place than Instagram.
The photo-sharing app is a treasure trove of Tesla themed accounts that provide endless images of perfectly positioned Teslas with sun-kissed paint-jobs, awesome aftermarket upgrades and proud owners who never come down from their Tesla High. By the way ‘Tesla High’ coined by @RizNwosu is defined as the inexplicable exhilaration and pride one feels the moment they take delivery of their Tesla. And thanks to Instagram’s Favorites feature, you can save all the pics you love in one place, making it easy to crystallize your vision of exactly what you’re looking for when you finally take the plunge and purchase a Tesla. Also, current Tesla owners can bask in the glory of owning a Tesla and further immerse themselves in the Tesla community via Instagram.
Before you head to a Tesla Store or take the plunge online at the Tesla website, get inspired by 8 of our favorite Tesla themed Instagram accounts that take The SUPERCHARGED Life to a whole new level:
Tesla’s Instagram account is #1 for obvious reasons. With 6 million followers worldwide, Tesla has proved that they can also conquer social media in such a short period of time. The Tesla Instagram account is where fans, owners and enthusiast gather to share their love for Tesla. It is ground zero for the Tesla community on Instagram and probably every Tesla owner follows this account because with under a million Teslas delivered so far, it leaves another 5+ million followers who do not yet own a Tesla but are dedicated to The SUPERCHARGED Life. Simply put, following Tesla’s Instagram account is a crucial step towards owning a Tesla. I know I started following the Tesla’s Instagram account a few years before I purchased my first Tesla.
Tesla Motosports Instagram account describes itself as “#1 Spot For All Things #Tesla.”. Now I do agree with the second half of that description. Yes Tesla Motosports is pretty much “All Things Tesla”, but I would beg to differ on the “#1” characterization. I think the #1 Spot For All Things #Tesla is actually the Tesla’s Instagram account. But I am willing to give Tesla Motosports a strong second place because the numbers don’t lie. With over 118K followers, Tesla Motosports is definitely the only Tesla themed Instagram account that has cracked the 100K mark and that’s highly commendable. As someone who manages two Tesla themed accounts – @voltly and @teslaarcade, I can attest to how extremely difficult it is to grow an Instagram account and gain followers. Actually I think any Instagram user will agree with that assertion. So I take my hat off to the folks behind Tesla Motosports for providing the Tesla community with a great source of Tesla themed content to keep our Tesla vibes going all day long. Additionally, the page does not currently have a link it’s bio which means it’s a Tesla fan account for now but has a lot of potential to becoming a business focused on the Tesla market.
The Tesarama Instagram account describes itself as “Your Zero Emission Page!”, and currently has over 45.4K followers. On Tesarama the link in the description points to a Instagram page leading me to think this is also another Tesla fan account and not an actual business which is perfectly OK. I too run a Tesla fan account called @teslaarcade which comes in further down on this list. At Tesarama, you wont be disappointed if shots of Tesla’s looking awesome is what you need to fuel your Tesla vibes. Most of the shots are sourced from other accounts just like virtually all Tesla themed Instagram accounts. However if you are looking for more content or substance beyond an endless stream of Tesla porn, then this might not the page for you. Stick around and we will get to those pages in a moment.
The Unpluggedperformance Instagram account describes itself as “The global leader of Tesla upgrades. Est.2013. We make bespoke complete cars and upgrade parts next-door to Tesla&SpaceX in Hawthorne, CA.”. Now although that’s quite a mouthful, the Unpluggedperformance Instagram account lives up to every word in it’s description. Just a look at some of the truly spectacular shots of modified Teslas on it’s feed and you will understand why it is indeed the “global leader of Tesla upgrades”. Every shot on the Unpluggedperformance feed does the seemingly impossible task of taking something that is already perfect and making it even more perfect. As a Tesla Purist which I define as “someone who believes Tesla’s are perfect creations that need no modification”, I am routinely pleasantly surprised and impressed by the Tesla modifications I have seen on Unpluggedperformance feed. From rims to spoilers to bodykits and everything in-between, Unpluggedperformance is for the Tesla fan that asks the question “what more can be done to a Tesla” and answers that questions with impeccable execution through each featured modified Tesla on it’s feed.

Coming in at #5 on our list is one of my babies. Teslaarcade was my first foray into the Tesla community on Instagram. I started the account about 2 years before I purchased my first Tesla. Like the other fan account’s above, it’s a mixture of original content shot by me and a curation of awesome photos from other wonderful Tesla owners like you. It used to be called TeslaPride but I recently changed it to Teslaarcade ever since I fell in love with Beach Buggy Racing 2 – Tesla Edition on my Tesla Model X which came with the most recent Tesla firmware upgrade. Although this page is not directly tied to or related to a business, you will often come across posts that feature an article on my Tesla blog account @voltly. I have also been able to grow it to 32.3K awesome followers/friends and counting with some help from the good folks at @getsocialgear. If you would like to get your Tesla shot featured on Teslaarcade, simply hashtag your post with #teslaarcade and consider it done.

Noi useremo ModelX come studio Mobile dal 4 Luglio! Si parte da Aosta Verso Cogne per la prima @alpinepearls E-Tour! #apetour #AlpinePearls #cogne #comunedicogne #Aosta #cogneworldcup2019 E se siete in giro per Milano, ci vediamo con @mimotosharing sui Navigli mercoledì sera, 3 Luglio, dalle 1900…cercate il Barcun di Milano o scriveteci! Questa preparazione è stata curata da @rdbla!
Teslaownersitalia describes itself as “Club Ufficiale Tesla | Nostro il Record Mondiale: 1078 km con una carica! I complimenti di Elon Musk” which when translated to English curtesy of Google Translate, means “Official Tesla Club | Our World Record: 1078 km on one charge! The compliments of Elon Musk”. From the description, Teslaownersitalia is a dedicated to chronicling the zero emissions journey of it’s club members and the Tesla community in Italy at large. Most of their feed is packed with shots curated form other Tesla owners and enthusiasts in the Italian Tesla community. So if you are a Tesla owner or fan in Italy, Teslaownersitalia is definitely your go to community for all things Tesla, localized to the Italian region and with close to 32K followers, you will be in good company.
Teslamotors.official describes itself on it’s bio as follows: “Tesla has a mission‼️To accelerate the advent of sustainable transport by bringing compelling mass market electric cars to market as soon as possible.”. Other than the minor grammatical error in it’s description, Teslamotors.official is another solid Tesla fan page. It also curates Tesla shots from other Tesla owners and pages on Instagram. There really isn’t much to say about this account as almost all it’s posts are void of a descriptive caption. Without that, we cannot discern the personality or character(s) behind the page. Perhaps this disassociated presentation is good for some Tesla fans as it’s 24.7K followers proves. However if you need to feel like there is a real person behind a page you follow then Teslamotors.official is probably not the vibe you are looking for.

Tesla announced Saturday that all new Model X and Model X purchases will come with free unlimited access to its Supercharger network. ________________________________________The announcement comes on the heels of a second quarter of wider-than-expected losses of $408 million despite record deliveries of its electric vehicles spurred on my Model 3 orders. ________________________________________Actually of its 95,200 deliveries, just 17,650 were Model S and X vehicles. Tesla doesn’t separate delivery or production figures for the S and X. ______________________________________ So you can understand why Tesla is pulling out all the stops to help boost sales of it’s Model S and Model X…..Read More At www.voltly.co [Link In Bio]
Coming in at #8 is my other pride an joy when it comes to my Tesla presence. Voltly is the Instagram page for my Tesla blog voltly.co. A lot of people ask where the name Voltly comes from or what it means. Google’s dictionary defines the “ly” suffix as follows:
(forming adjectives) having the qualities of.
(forming adjectives) recurring at intervals of.
And “Volt” is defined as follows:
the SI unit of electromotive force, the difference of potential that would drive one ampere of current against one ohm resistance.
So for all who would like to know, Voltly means “To have the qualities of an electromotive force”. Thus in theory, anything with the qualities of an electromotive force can be described a being “Voltly“. However to serve the purpose of my passion towards Tesla, Voltly in this context is “A blog and platform that focuses on and espouses the electromotive qualities Tesla vehicles”.
Similar to Unpluggedperformance, Voltly is the only other business related Tesla themed Instagram account on this list. Voltly is where you can get snack-able bits and snippets of our articles I have made on the voltly.co blog in addition to a curated feed of awesome Tesla photos from the 23.3K strong Voltly Instagram community. On Voltly, you can find posts related to news and information about Tesla, new Tesla offerings, new Tesla features, Tesla business decisions and everything Elon Musk related because let’s face it, to love Tesla is to love Elon Musk. My vision for Voltly is for it to become the go-to online destination for anyone looking for help figuring out which Tesla model is right for them based on their income, family size & city.
Some will argue that the Tesla Motors website already does that but they will be wrong. The Tesla Motors website presents a one sided perspective of Tesla and it’s offerings while Voltly presents an multisided perspective of Tesla and it’s offerings form the stand point of a two-time Tesla owner who in many respects has gone through the very same experiences that any perspective Tesla owner will surely embark on. Sometimes there are issues but most times it’s a wonderful experience but I am not going to shy away from pointing out those occasional issues I experience while owning a Tesla. A little guidance goes a long way.
By the way if you like this post and you are in the market for a new Tesla, Tesla has an amazing referral program that offers you 1000 free supercharging miles if you use a referral code when you make your purchase. As a two-time Tesla owner, having owned a model S and model X, I can assure you that purchasing a Tesla will be the best automotive decision you’ve ever made and will ever make in your life. So why not make use of my referral code below and we can both continue to enjoy the wonderful Tesla life.
