    I keep getting reminded on Model 3 when I see Mazda 6 around.
    From the wheel design, the chrome trim around the windows, to the shape of the tail lights...

    The Mazda has wheels that have sort of a shiny warm glow luster, whereas the Model 3 RC wheels seem a little dull by comparison.
    The original Model 3 alpha/prototypes from the intro seemed to have more 'pop' to the wheels too.
    I hope Tesla gets wheels with a bit more of that glow to them for the production model 3.

    Door shape and crease is a bit similar too.

    Yeah, although in that case I think people were comparing to Mazda 3, not Mazda 6

    Meh, I think this is coincidence as when you compare the full cars they look nothing alike.
    Now if the Mazda 6 and the Porsche Panamera had a threesome with a Model S....
