Model 3 or its Y variant will have falcon wing doors

It doesn't make sense unless they are making the Model Y a three row CUV also. For a two row car, it makes little sense to have falcon wing doors.

I know for certain their first variant will not have them given Elon's previous comments (about how they will not be so ambitious initially in order to get the Model 3 out in time).

Or maybe they are talking about a coupe? But I would imagine such expensive doors would be reserved for something like the next gen Roadster.

It is impossible to have FwD on a roadster.

It makes much more sense to put FwD on a CUV than sedan.

Either the sedan OR the CUV will get FwD per Elon tweet.

Obviously it is the Model Y.

It is crucially important to get the Model 3 to market on time. Obviously Model 3 gets standard doors.

FwD are real car doors.

By far the most reliable cars to date are Corolla and Civic with manual transmissions.

So if you are obsessed with a car with components "not likely to break" you have your prime candidates.
