    I guess we're playing the "what the heck is that?!" game. :smile:

    The picture looks like headliner to me, maybe a solid roof with a coat hanger?

    I looks like a seat to me. Also, the Alcantara headliner in my S doesn't have any stitching; the Alcantara on the seats does.

    It might also be the door.

    My guess - there may be a Model X as a shuttle.

    Almost makes me want to fly down instead of driving. Almost.

    Judging by this picture, I'm pretty sure it's an X shot. Haven't figured out which angle yet though.

    Maybe it means that they will be shuttling people (using a Sprinter 2500) from the Hotel to see something at the factory?

    I am guessing at Tesla vehicle with blue accent stitching (Model X) will be the hotel shuttle. Now I need to see if I can change my flight to SJC.

    Well the new pictures look like someone's chin/neck/mouth/lips.
    The inside of a non-Tesla vehicle (MB Sprinter?)
    And well a Roadster.

    Not sure what this is alluding to.

    The second photo looks like the interior of a Roadster/Lotus to me. The interesting thing about the third pic is the LED lights inside the mouth behind the grill.

    I think the speaker grilles were normally black even on Roadster with gray interior:

    Looks like maybe some custom color-matched interior bits there... Would make sense on a customized Roadster with the hidden fog light mod too. (I think those extra lights could be xenon or halogen, not for sure LED...)

    The color quality suggests LED to me, but sure it could be something else.
