    From what I can gather, the 2017 Model 3 is going to look and spec out remarkably similar to a 2006 Lexus IS-250... a beautiful car itself. Check out the released Model 3 photo and the IS-250 photos I have attached along with the specs listed below:

    Exterior Length 180.1 " exterior length
    Exterior Width
    70.9 " exterior body width
    Wheelbase
    108 " wheelbase
    Front Tread
    60 " front tread
    Rear Tread
    60 " rear tread
    Drag Coefficient
    .28 drag coefficient

    What do you think? My checkbook is open and ready.

    That is a guess by British magazine/website Auto Express.

    Not anything leaked from Tesla. Elon said as much.

    Mod note: Retitled and closed the thread. OP basically realized that the article's image was a speculative artist's mock-up, not a real photo of Model 3.
