    Perfect angles and colors too... Not show me the gaps!

    I'm still crossing my fingers it's not as bad as some of the test mules running around.

    If the world was black & white, I'd 100% get the black.

    The chrome REALLY stands out in the black, and most of the colors.

    I think that's why, to my eye, I like silver the most.

    So is this final design? Or are we going to expect a different design on reveal day? Not to fond of the front fascia.

    Anyone else notice that the steering wheel is narrower than the prototype ones we've seen? That's all we can see of the interior from these pics.

    Hood gap (or lack thereof) looks like it might have been intentional on the other prototypes.

    Hanging to see some interior photos, to see what the final thing looks like.

    To me, it still kind of looks like if a Model S and Model X got together and had a baby.

    It has to be that shape for the HUD to project correctly.

    Probably a dumb question....do we know the battery size?

    It appeared that is one cost $42,500.

    (Apologies if this has been stated somewhere)

    There goes the theory that Elon is holding off for one big "surprise" on the exterior for final reveal day (you can see in one pic the same trunk struts and cut so no changes there).

    Bravo!
    Can't wait for the configurator to open up.
    The revolution has begun.

    I see the mobile design studio Airstream in the background. Outfit that thing for Model 3 orders and get it on the road!

    I don't know why so many people think/thought that there was going to be some big surprise when we saw the final car and it was going to be something other than what we've been seeing for months.

    I thought there was going to be something different, guess not. If you look back at the model x prototype and the production version they did away with the nose cone. Model s also had design tweeks from pre production prototype and production model. Model 3 looks unchanged.

    But will it be able to tow an Airstream -- that is the $35,000 dollar question! (well, okay, probably a little more than $35k) ;)
