    In my opinion, The S looks better without the stache!

    Never thought it would, but it does kinda look better. I am torn because I really do like the stache.. uhg torn.. but I have to agree.

    I would love to see the S without the "snaggle tooth" fascia and without the Model 3 "duckbill" front. It would also be interesting to see a "snaggle tooth" free X-style front on the S. I think either would work. BTW, thanks to all the skilled photoshoppers for their efforts!

    Wait what? Model S and X have the same front. How can one be a "snaggle tooth", but the other is not? Assuming "snaggle tooth" means stache, what do you mean when you say you want to see the S without ST or duckbill? So basically the original nosecone or Saleen front? This could mean literally anything lol.

    Or maybe I just don't understand any of this post.

    The front fascias of the X and the S are not the same. I would love to see an S with one image incorporating the front style of the X and one image incorporating the front style of the S, but both without any vestigial grill work. I hope that's clearer for you. And, I do like the Saleen fascia. :)

    A dozen or so pages ago, I said I'm back in the camp of "The nose did not change".

    The nose definitely did change. The pictures you all posted made it quite clear. It's a nice change.

    OK something is amiss... someone is admitting they were wrong on the internet! I think it's time I go outside. :D;)

    Tough call ... I like both, but would really like to see the Porsche front fascia with a lower frunk and rounded bumper :cool:

    Thank you for the mock-up @McHoffa! Excellent.

    If you do requests, maybe next one with a Model 3 release candidate type of softer Porsche nose where the bonnet curve extends lower and the front is a bit more rounded out? :)

    Yes, please! Something akin to the softened 3 fascia rather than the Saleen nose. TIA.

    For the Model 3....3rd party vendors will be involved in altering things such as the front fascia and wheels and things of that nature. Don't worry.

    With 400K+ TM3 reservations, the aftermarket industry (exterior, interior, performance, handling, electronics) is salivating!

    I found some new fotos of the blue Model 3.
    One thing I have to say, I´m a bit confused that it look so different from some angles.

    It´s so beautiful..sporty...etc in theses pictures!!!! 82c5651s-960.jpg c2c5651s-960.jpg

    It looks like someone stole the front license plate. But who would secure it with two wired like that anyway? :D

    Is it just me or does the photo look really weird, especially the top one where the back wheel looks squished. Maybe odd refraction from behind the driver window where the photo was taken?
