    The angle of the Model 3 in the photo makes the hood look odd.

    That Model 3 in red looks just amazing... I think my paint option is clear :)... Also did not like these wheels at first, but on a daylight combined with the red paint, incredible!!!

    Very Very nice. Looks like the mirrors are falling off. Maybe it's the angle.

    I love that front. I hope they don't change it too much or at all.

    So there is a "press only" tour of the Gigafactory going on now? Electrek was doing a live stream of the tour but now it's gone? I assume they will make it available on their site later.

    That red 3 appears to be the prototype that was at the Model 3 reveal on March 31. It's the car that was never seen moving under its own power. I wonder if it is functional now.

    I'm still hopeful that the "test rides" being offered at the event this coming Friday evening will be Model 3 rides. This is now seeming even more likely...

    I think they may be falling off too. We're gonna need more angles. Wondering if this is the same one from the reveal

    When I watched that video, titled "Tesla Gigafactory Tour and Musk/Straubel Q&A"
    , all I saw was 10:28 of driving on Nevada roads and stopping at the Tesla guard gate on Electric Avenue near the Gigafactory. A complete waste of time. No information at all. I fast forwarded through most of it.
    Edit: after posting that, the video embed in the post was showing a different video of someone videoing a Gigafactory scale model, I assume in the Gigafactory lobby?

    I don't care if the mirrors are falling off...or if the front looks a bit funny...I love the model 3 and want it...need it...imperfections and all...I'll forgive the looks and the falling off mirrors...just give me my Tesla already...been waiting a decade or so...

    You know, that front looks perfectly fine to me on the red. It's strange how different colours can completely change the appearance.

    I was the same way with the new blue on the Model S. I was kind of "meh" about it until they came out with the new front. That small change turned the "meh" to "that's gorgeous."

    That red car looks amazingly like the reveal car from 3/31
