It's great. I'm associating with Porsche and Ferrari.
For all the current Tesla owners who reserved already and hate the front of the Model 3.. please feel free to drop your reservation so I can get my Model 3 earlier. Thanks! =)
We like it!
It's not the lack of a grille or grille opening. It's the odd blunt profile of the very front. It's as if they had to cut the overall length of the car by 4 inches and blunted the front nose. There's a flat upward angle that just doesn't match the otherwise beautiful lines of the car.
There are profile lines just under the headlights. These lines should have been continued around the front, extending the front by a few inches into a more pointed or rounded profile.
What's frustrating to me is that every other line of the car is spot on.
Best front ye, More modern. Fits better wth the overall shape of the car.
Recall the Alpha Model S. It had a very plain front nose and the Tesla emblem was on the hood.
The production S was much more refined.
Now look at the picture above. See any pattern? Just sayin'.
I called it back at the Model X intro that Model 3 would get the same treatment. Model S will get it too when they get around to a product refresh.
EXACTLY! I am a modder and the front end is begging to be modded. Yes, slap some vinyl on there and be creative. Peal that piece of vinyl off when it gets cruddy and slap on another one. Peal the vinyl off to take it back to stock anytime you feel like it. Easy peasy.
I reserved mine today!!!!!!
Tesla Model S Crossed 100,000 Sales Milestone This Month - HybridCars.com
THIS IS AWESOME
reminds me of roadsters front end... Also why are there hatters? Its a prototype still.
Actually, I love the front. Butt, not so much. I do think they mated the S and X quite well to get the E.
Its like the S and X had S E X. Oh wait. That is what happened, isn't it.
This is much more like a Model S that I would have thought. Which, is a good thing!
Model Y next please.
I reserved two, thinking one Model 3 and one Model Y.
I'm still betting on the Y. Why? Y knot?
A thumbs up for your 100th post!
True, I was also hoping for a
True, I was also hoping for a much more prominent Tesla badge like the S. I want the world to know what I'm driving!
Put a license plate on it. And finished.
I think softening the upper edge of the front end might help make it seem less abrupt. I think that edge was meant to echo the hard edge/spoiler at the back, but it seems a bit too severe for the front. I have no problem with lack of grille or the side view of the front end. Everything else looks pretty damn good. I'm sure Franz will refine things here and there over the next 12 months. Can't wait to see the betas! 9/10 nice job, Tesla.
none of those press kit photos show a head on look of the front. good chance it will grow on me and/or some tweaking will improve things before launch.
from my first impression I like it (i really like the model x so i could be a bit bias), however, it could look better if the tesla badge is on the grill rather than on the hood (it's just too much Porsche in the current location).
not saying people not liking the front now wont come to get used to and like it, but, your iphone comment has the opposite effect on me. the iphone was different from everything else when it came out... but it looked very aesthetically pleasing to so many of us right from first sight.
No worries...this thing's not finished.
Nose looks sharp as a razor. It's my favorite part about the 3. Reminds me of a Ferrari Modena, one of my favorite cars of all time.
