    I think this is a bit old, and nothing official, but looks like someone had fun doing a mock-up "what if":

    (I don't recall seeing it posted to the forum before.)

    Looks amazing! A Model S coupe can probably sell pretty well.

    This would be "Model C", no?

    Waiting for the convertible...

    Overall I like the looks of it. The only exception are the Bentley-style wheels, I think they look a bit silly.


    For comparison:

    I'd like to see it as a hardtop convertible. Usually cars lose some trunk space with one but since the Model S has a frunk it wouldn't be sacrificing much.

    Coupe looks pretty good. The ass isn't as high as the sedan, which reminds me more of the original concept drawings

    That coupe is pretty cool. Even has the steering wheel on the correct side.

    I'll take a coupe but only if they fit a suspension ...

    Very nice!! A bit low to the ground but I would think it has air suspension. The original grille really gave it such a distinct look. IMO, some of that was lost with the Beta. Still cool of course. TM should not have teased us :biggrin:

    The coupe rendering looks pretty nice and the Audi A7 wheels add an extra touch. The question would be will it fit on the current platform?

    Please try to post a link to the image source.
    I found it here: Tesla coupe S concept by ~Kretiins on deviantART
    Apparently he used this image:

    Hi,

    Yes, very nice, but there goes Elon's 5-Star crash ratings for side impact. :wink:

    And I thought the Roadster's doors were long. That'll take out the door on the car parked two spots over!

    Tesla should give Kretiins a job.

    The door issue can be solved with a double hinge, like on the Renault Avantime.
