    Don't know if I'm the first to notice this.... but look in the background beside the white model X:



    That's not an S or an X. The lines are all wrong, fog light position is wrong, wing mirrors are wrong and it's a more aggressive design. There also appears to be a larger piece of trim behind the front wheel arches.

    Or could it be a Model S refresh?

    Already discussed recently. What you are looking at is an early Model S prototype.

    TESLA is the ONLY car manufacturer that makes production cars look even better than the prototypes !

    Production MS is way cooler than prototype of MS

    Yep, beautiful and much more refined instead of dulled down

    Many people would not agree on the Model X

    "Many people" may agree with you, but I think many people are also quite pleased with the look of the production X. I have seen the 2014 white X prototype up close and think the production X looks even better!

    I agree, production X is much nicer than the old white prototype.

    I really hope the M3 is as good looking as the S though
