    I've never been in a Tesla. Do they have adjustable extension visors? I find them very useful for the side window.

    The Model S does not. No official word yet on the Model 3, but since it is not supposed to get features that MS and MX don't have...

    Thanks. I'll still hope though as the S reportedly doesn't have height-adjustable seatbelts either. ;)

    They way the Model 3 has been anti-sold and (cough) simplified, let's just hope it has Visors :)

    They had a patent issued for something new with the visors a few months back. I will see what I can find on it.

    Every car I've ever had, has visors like these

    I had to google what an adjustable extension visor is... and look at the shape of that window.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess no, it will not have adjustable extension visors, because like coat hangers and grab handles, it doesn't look good and probably feels cheap.

    Although, visors like the Model X would be cool

    There are adjustable height seat belts... so that's a plus.
    I wonder what else it will have that the S doesn't.

    I doubt it will have any, remember you are not meant to drive it.

    Driving will be optional for Teslas in the foreseeable future. It's still going to be far more fun to drive it than to sit back and let self driving do the work, unless you are stuck in rush hour traffic during your daily commute :mad:

    el crucero I see that you disagreed. Would you care to share your thoughts as to your disagreement with the sentiments of both myself and Elon Musk?

    I hope keys are standard.... :p

    I get the feeling the model 3 will have many features missing from a Model S and other cars in general and will have lots of features as options in an attempt to meet the $35k target, in theory, you could make a $20k car with this approach. The base price is fixed, what that includes doesn't have to be as of yet. The goal posts have some maneuverability.

    My old Taurus wagon from the early '90s had dual sun visors so you can position one flap over the driver's side window and the other over the windshield. Works great at sunrise or sunset when the sun is coming in at a low angle. Wish more cars have them.

    If you look at every shot of the model 3, from Alpha to today's RC pics, not one of them has a keyhole anywhere on the outside to put a key into. I can all but guarantee Keyless entry is standard on all model 3's.

    Oh, great, now someone has to start a new thread, "Model 3 Keyfob Mule Sightings", along with a poll:
    • Keyfob will be a really cool miniature Model 3 to set it apart from every other car model on the planet and, when people see you with your fob (e.g., a valet), they immediately recognize you are a person with refined tastes.
    • Keyfob will just be a boring generic one that doesn't emphasize the uniqueness and significance of the Model 3 in automotive history and, when people see you with your fob, they will forever brand you a Philistine.
    (Your response will be visible and published throughout the Internet, so think carefully before you make your selection)
    :rolleyes:
