    I noticed the Model 3 prototype immediately when that garage door came up during the presentation. I looked for a driver in it but couldn't see clearly to be certain if there was a driver or not.

    It was definitely summoned, just like the Model S with the arachnid wheels. It was weird that the Model 3 headlights had a yellow tinge to them... Anyway, it looked awesome!

    Looks to me like a woman is driving the Model 3 out of the garage:

    Yes, looked like a woman was driving the Model 3 out of the garage about 12 minutes in. Nice little cameo tho.

    They showed some great tech again! Here's to hoping they'll sell the solar roof in all countries as soon as possible!

    What was extra interesting for model 3 are the implications on the price for a battery upgrade. I'm hopeful this means we could see an extra 15kWh for $5000. Fingers crossed!

    Is it me, or do I spot a small circular hole in the silver support for the mirror? Extra camera or sensor to monitor the 12 to 3 o'clock and 9 to 12 o'clock angles? This would be particularly useful in an urban environment where cyclists and pedestrians want to cross the street or where cars coming from the left or right at an intersection have the right of way.

    Thanks, yes I see that now. I only watched the presentation once and didn't catch that since they only showed the car for a second or two as it was moving.

    Typical Elon to sneak in the Model 3 last night but not say a word about it. Just like on the Q3 earning call when he said that he doesn't talk about the Model 3 these days because there is clearly huge demand and more info will be revealed later.

    I was also happy to see that black Roadster last night. I wonder if that is his car.

    This has to be the best look at the interior to date. No drooping mirrors, door handles, etc.
