    Beautiful in the wild! Funny that a Model S is right behind, really can see the difference in profile.

    Don't trade in yet, Model 3 will be at least 2 years away for European delivery :)

    From this angle, I think model 3 just might beat model S in term of looks. so fresh and clean.

    This thing is really growing on me. When they first came out on stage, I thought "meh - 4 door sedans", but all these pictures tell a MUCH different story. It's really a beautiful car.

    Tesla seems to have done it AGAIN.

    Thanks for the post and links. Sent it to my wife who had been wanting to see a Model 3 next to a Model S for a size comparison.

    Lovely Cars!

    Wow. Just stunning. The most beautiful Tesla to date. Those night/indoor pictures from the reveal doesn't to justice to the lines in the design. This does.

    It's gonna be a long wait. But will be worth it!

    It's beautiful...I don't think I've loved the styling of a vehicle as much since the Model S. There's a lot of 911 in the front.

    That looks really nice on the road and I much prefer the silver paint colour they've come-up with compared to the one on the MS.

    Also interesting to see the size comparison - it looks tiny next to the MS, but I suspect a lot of that is due to the camera and angle.

    Now that I think of it. If they are filming commercials or product video for their website more likely. This has to mean these are very very production close exterior wise. Right? Or is this just promo stuff on website until they finalize it to keep interest in reservations.

    Looks better in the wild than in the reveal. No need to redesign it. Go straight ahead with the dyes and tool machinery.

    I think it looks better than the S.
