    Here's what's happening at the factory today. I charge here because I work down the street, but it's supplier test drive day for this Silver M3 and another non-gloss black one. Really nice up close.

    And I was going down there today to get some center caps. It seems like every time I'm near the Chargers or delivery area, there are a bunch of guys in suits and rumors of "model 3s around here somewhere." One of the guys there said they frequently sneak them between two model S the same color. Nothing sneaky about this picture.

    No, it was there just for a moment & I had to go to lunch. I heard it was at the debut last month though, right?
    Silver one looked like no prototype, more like ready to roll.

    It looks really sleek in that first picture.

    In the first photo it appears that there is only a single windshield wiper blade.

    The second photo makes the windshield look very tall. Not just long, but tall. Must be the angle.

    I think there's two windshield wipers there, I can see something to the left of the visible one. It is an odd angle to see it clearly, though.

    I don't think so. Tap the photo to enlarge it and then you can enlarge it again with your fingers (if you are on an iPad or iPhone). I enlarged the photo quite a bit. What you see at the right rear corner of the hood is part of the hinge mechanism, I think. I can see only one wiper blade and arm, quite clearly. I cannot see a second wiper blade.

    I think it's just tucked under. In this overhead view, it looks the same on the Model S
