    Dont know if anyone else noticed this:



    The brake light is made of 2 components, the interior light and the exterior ring. at 0:17 he slows down and only the small brakelight comes on, followed by the bigger ring one when he presumably comes to a harsh stop using the brake. Later at 0:29 you can see how again he slows down GENTLY this time and only the small brake light comes on.

    Could the regen trigger the smaller brake lights? And if so... On the Model S the brake lights only come on if significant regen is applied (i.e. not the one applied to a car moving at perhaps 3mph)

    This was covered in one of the other threads, but when the taillight comes on, you can see the headlights came on too (reflection in the Model X in-front of the 3).. so he probably hit the headlights on accident.. some how

    Here it is: When will we see a photo of SN1?

    He turned on the headlights for a second -- you can see the reflection in the Model X opposite of the 3.

    When will we see a photo of SN1?
