Meet the founders of Strut, Geoff Spencer and Scott Struthers. The Orange County, California based company is responsible for dreaming up distinctive jewelry collections, wheels, and accessories designed for luxury autmobiles. Their common goal was to break from the norm – to create something unimaginable, unrivaled, and unprecedented. Strut’s jewelry collections are proof of just that.
All collections are handcrafted and signed by the artisan. STRUT Collections are sold exclusively through high-end automobile dealerships and automotive boutiques. Their newest fashion accessory? A carbon-fiber grille for the Tesla Model S that retails for $4,600. Strut notes in its news release, the custom-made grille adds no weight to the car. “Carbon fiber is a great option for the Tesla S Collection,” Simon Trumper, Strut’s chief operating officer, says in the news release. “Our engineering team chose the material for its high ratio of strength to weight … and the finish is gorgeous.” In addition to the carbon-fiber grille, Strut also produces side-trim moldings and a rear spoiler for the Model S.
EVannex (owned by Roger Pressman along with sons Matt and Mike) is another company that dresses up luxury autos, Teslas to be exact. The family-owned and operated company based in Pompano Beach, Florida launched in 2013 and specializes in aftermarket parts for Teslas. Pressman got a Model S back in October 2012, it was the 184th Model S sold in the world. Although he admired the minimalist design of the car, he wanted a more robust solution for the central channel area. He shared his central console ideas on Tesla Web Forums and received positive feedback. Being a mechanical engineer, he set out to design and fabricate one. The result is the Center Console Insert, the CCI, EVannexs’ premiere product.
EVannex sells interior and exterior accessories and specialty items, such as rim protectors, storage and lighting kits, spoilers, and rear-seat cupholders to wheels, to name a few. There are plans for EVannex to add customizing components for other plug-in vehicles, such as the Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt, Ford Focus electric, and BMW I3 and I8, amongst others.
