Awesome find Doug. The back of that Alpha looks badass.
Looks like that vent behind the front wheels is back!
Edit: maybe not, after looking at the other pics.
That drivetrain (+ PEM) is amazing as the concrete tabletop battery pack.
Looks like one of those low SUVs from BMW, Infiniti and Honda.
BTW, where is the charge port?!
I bet they heard the requests and it's hidden somewhere in the nose.
Wicked find, thanks for posting.
Did anyone notice the rear disk brake with "TESLA" on the inside portion. Why would they do that?
VERY nice find! Poring through the pics now
That is on the thin shield separate from the disc itself.
For instance, see item #11 on this chart for a BMW:
Yes I think it is item #11 from your chart. I'm just referring to the fact that on the inside-facing portion of that disk is says "TESLA" on it.
They are being "cute" on the prototypes. That might not make it into production. Obviously it is in a location where only service techs are likely to see it.
Sort of an "Easter egg" I guess. It does point out that those particular stampings are custom for Tesla.
Anyone else notice the "VIN #X" labels on the racks in the background?
As for the front bumper pics -- looks like 3 radiators? The two side portions have fans and the center portion looks like it might even close off the inside to block airflow when appropriate? (Some other auto manufacturer's TV commercial just mentioned it'll do that in order to decrease drag -- don't remember which one)
I love seeing this stuff! Thanks for posting, Doug!
Has anybody noticed the different wheels on the car in the background of pic 16?
I bet those will be the stock wheels, and the lorinser style wheels will be the upgrade.
big departure from the rear view as well
They look a bit like the Brabus Roadster wheels.
Looks like a stamping. They probably did it because it didn't cost them anything.
Really cool indeed! To bad there isn't any Exif data with GPS coördinates in the pictures, hehe
Also, those "stock" rims look pretty nice as well, I'll probably go for the other rims, but those aren't bad.
i realy like the orange one!
If the Program Director has been driving one to work, you local photographers are falling down on the job! :biggrin:
