    Looks like the early Model S prototype.

    It's the "beta" mule. It's only a shell and is on display at the Tesla factory in Fremont.

    We rode in the operational "beta" in Carmel before we bought our Roadster. It was originally silver but they painted it red for the show.

    As i said in a previous post i like it more the beta version of the Model S. in particular i like more the smaller side mirrors and the front bumpers.

    I like the beta look a bit more too but they had to make changes due to regulations/safety.

    Nah, the beta version looks too similar to the XK, I think.

    Maybe it's just me but I always thought the beta resembled a bar of soap.
