    For me this would be a beautiful third model on the model S chassis
    A four doors coupé!
    Bit like Aston-Martin Rapide, Lamborginis Estoque, Mercedes cls,.......

    Like I said, I'd love it, but don't think it's franz' style. He's still in swoopy Mazda land

    Maybe, but these lines in the photo resemble a lot the roadster!

    Franz is a good designer, if one asks him to draw an extreme 4 doors saloon, he is able to do it!

    If I am not wrong, the person who designed the Estoque also designed the Bentley Mulsanne! Not really the same design-language!

    Some of those vehicles have very pretty lines but they all have air intakes and grills to cool an ICE that isn't in a Tesla. So far Tesla's newer designs incorporates a fusion of aerodynamics, modern luxury car, and Tesla flair. And a frunk...

    Below are a couple of comparison images of the Model S VS Aston Martin Rapide 4dr, both having seriously good looks and common DNA due to a certain Mr Fisker.

    Cant wait to see a Model S in the metal.

    I may be off-base, but didn't Henrik supposedly turn in an unacceptable Model S design, so it was scrapped and Franz redid it? Gotta say though, I love the stronger, more aggressive lines of the Astons (Henrik)

    I was shopping high-end cars when I first stumbled across the Model S. Having previously had the fantasy of buying a Rapide, the Model S lured me in with the promise of similar styling at a much more affordable price. And then I discovered the Model S was an EV, doubling the reasons for me to own it.

    There are loose plans to create a Cabriolet version of the Model S.

    This is from Tesla IPO filing in June 2010

    The Crossover/SUV part has been officially announced. :cool:

    I'm not sure... Model S is pretty huge. Would like to see one with a PRHT.
