    Isn't the current front end on S appealing? Voice your positive opinion so it shall become a reality.

    The Model 3 already has a similar front end to the Model S/X. I like it.

    I would say the Model 3 is the best looking one of the three. The S has a gap at the top that looks misplaced, like they didn't want to change the hood when they did the facelift. The Model X has a similar gap, plus the front is too tall and the curves just aren't quite right, in a way that makes it look like smiling lips.

    Haven't we had this thread a dozen times already? My stance continues to be that I like the Model 3 prototype front end, the S/X front end would just increase drag compared to the Model 3 front end.... so why would they even consider it?

    Yes, and polls too! Besides, why would Tesla change the design of the Model 3 just because a few people on a forum with which they are not associated simply wish it to be so? Finally, it's too late to start this latest appeal since it's been "pencils down" for a few weeks already.

    I really think the new front end on S looks better, more elegant. The 3 proto type is bland without the the "T' emblem strip.

    Since they completed the final design work a month or so ago, you can voice whatever you want and it won't change anything ....

    M3 front end looks better than the X or S
