    Saw this on Instagram. Gotta say I'm not crazy about the rear tail lights...

    I'm not worried yet, even though I kinda agree with you, the reason being that most Teslas look good in photos, but all Teslas look better in person.

    Guess it’s a good thing you won’t have to look at them while you’re behind the wheel?

    What's not to like about them?


    They have a clean and visible design. Although I wish they would have made the 3rd brake light all the way across like the S. Would have been a cool factor for a mid priced car

    Should be aftermarket choices on things like that.

    Agreed, Tail Lights could be better, but not the worst.
    That nose shot is what bothers me.
    There must be aerodynmic reasons for that front nose.
    I like the new S nose, but the 3 nose is wierd in a bad way.

    Yes, too heavy & bad styling.
    Newest one looks better, but I'd take an S over it any day.

    Also, I'd bet the 3 Nose gets restyled before 2Y.
    Still hoping its fixed in actual production (which nobody has really seen yet).

    I like it. Or in the very least, it doesn't bother me. It's styling sets it apart from other cars, not just other Tesla models.

    I don't get why the tail light is just that small "inner" dash. Why does it not extend all the way to the corresponding section on the trunk?
