    Great free advert for Tesla - there was no 'news' as such, just a three minute Tesla/Elon Musk ad :)

    Still the nonsense about losing money on every car.

    In fairness, that is technically correct, albeit it's a conscious decision in order to grow the business

    It's about as technically correct as saying Microsoft is making a fortune on every Windows Phone that they sell. Don't confuse the product for the business.

    The white vehicle looks like a Model X to me. Not sure about the other greyish one. Has lots of differences from a Model S, but same overall shape (almost looks like the early white and red alpha Model S cars, but grey).

    It looks a little different than Model S to me...

    Could it be somewhat "facelifted" Model S ?

    That car on the left does not look like the current production S. No fog light at the lower front corner. Different wheel style.
    Large silver emblem where the current small side signal light is.
    That video was shot at the Hawthorne Design Studio, correct?
    No way that Tesla would have let an uncovered Model 3 prototype be visible for that shot. And it looks too big to be a 3.

    Okay, obviously not a 3 prototype. It's a very early S mockup.

    That grill looks kinda nice. I think the black plastic "grill" on the MS is it's most ugly feature.

    I am so glad that Tesla did not put that grill into production.

    I know what you mean but the one they have is fugly. I'd swap mine in a heartbeat but to be fair, most of the aftermarket versions look cheap too.
