    Rather than being aerodynamic he looks like he's trying to catch the wind with the front end :)
    This is someone with nothing better to do with his money. Looks like he wrapped an S with a Nissan GTR :)

    From the article:
    Are we to understand that Teslas are poorly engineered to begin with, and this only makes things worse? :eek:

    Ehhhh ... the front end looks downright sharky, which is not a compliment in this case. :p If you want to know where I'm coming from, I don't like those oversize super-chromy Barbie rims dudes like on their Escalades, so why would I like this? Refresh-Model S front end or stock Model 3 visage for me!

    Kinda like those suicide doors though, gives it a more open feel and probably makes ingress/egress easier.

    Not really connected I suppose but your comment reminded me of how the Edsel was said to look like a fish eating a lemon. :)

    Who wants to drive around with a permanent smiley face on their car?

    It's not the tesla grin.

    Love Will.I.Am, but really not a fan of the front of the car although it looks cool from the side. Also wonder how creating a slightly wider body would affect auto pilot, auto parking, etc. Wouldn,t the cars sensors be screwed up with an altered body size?

    We have known for a long time that there are plenty of people (many in the entertainment business ) with no taste and more dollars than sense.

    When I saw this a year or so ago I kind of hated it. but for some reason it's been all over my corner of the internet today and I have to say, it has grown on me. it's certainly not what I would do to my Model S, but in general, I have grown to like it. I particularly like how the rear doors open with the door hinge in the rear rather than standard sedan doors where the rear door hinge is in the middle and the door opens from the rear going forward,

    I would like to see a pic of the front doors opened to see if they are suicide doors and what they look like when they are up.
