    Uh, isn't "within a week" and "by the end of the month" the same thing? :D

    Someone play the video backwards and check for a hidden satanic message.

    The car looks bigger!
    Rear overhang seems definitely longer.
    Front looks more rounded and balanced.
    The arch form of the window line less bent than the earlier shots.
    Almost like a Model S.
    Maybe that´s what Elon meant with "iteration of S".
    That´s what "solved" the trunk problem.

    A BMW 5 series size and not 3 series.

    Same tricks in effect like MX, this time vice versa.
    (MX 2012 protoype was longer and more elegant with a softer roofline compared to what we have today).

    That is a huge elegant car.
    Either a kid in there or bigger headroom than MS.

    The chrome trim around the windows is disappointing. Was that on the demo M3s?

    It looks to me like they dumped the trunk in favor of a hatchback design. Definitely more of an S feel than before. I'm happier.

    First impression: It really did look bigger than the silver one we have seen for months now. More like an S. Love the look

    BUT, this is all we get? A bad quality 5 second video. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    The chrome trim around the windows of the car in the video being discussed looks the same as the prototype to me. No change there. See Model 3 | Tesla
    I see nothing in that video that shows a hatchback. What am I missing? Or did you forget the "just kidding" emoji? ;)
    The black 3 in the video looks the same size as the prototypes.

    You guys are seeing things. Imaginary things. The waiting has got to you. Take a break. :cool:

    Maybe the aspect ratio on that video is "off", so the car is stretched and looks longer than it actually is?

    True, I may be seeing things. Maybe the color just makes it look bigger to me. But first look for a sec. I thought it was an S

    I've watched the video multiple times.

    I think the camera angle and the panning motion is misleading you. Pause the video at the 7 second point so you see the car straight on, when its path of motion is at a right angle to the plane of the video image. Then look at front and rear overhangs (length of the body ahead of and behind the wheels). It is clearly much shorter than an S, just like all the Model 3 prototypes we have seen.

    Go back and read Elon's tweets. He never said that he would Reveal and Reface the Model 3. ;)
