    A08D5408-7F82-45F5-B9B9-927FB18C57DE.png is your view kind of distorted through your model S back window?
    Here is a straight angle picture from my perspective view out my back window. The white line (black arrow) is a straight white line for a parking spot.

    Mine is slightly distorted. Approaching vehicles tend to look slightly squished at the lower part of the glass. Will have to check out the scenario shown in the pic.

    Mine showed squished traffic in the rear view mirror as well. I never found out if it was the mirror or the window before I sold it.

    After reading your post, I noticed today that I have the same effect; with looking over my shoulder out the rear window AND via the rear-view mirror. For what it’s worth, I do have window tint.

    I can already see the headlines, "Tesla goes Bankwupt over recalling millions of cars with vehicles in the rear tending to look slightly squished at the lower part of the glass" - "Elon Musk saves the company from Bankwuptcy by merging SpaceX and Tesla".
