    Where is the Model X Test Mule? Is there one?

    How's that? Is that better? I can't take credit for it though. Someone posted it on facebook.

    Holy crap - this is huge!

    There is almost no camo aside from a little netting and tape here and there. I wonder if this is intentional - to soften the blow a little from ER, or perhaps now that we are out of the quiet period before ER.

    This thread explodes in 3.... 2.... 1...

    Wow! Hard to tell about a nosecone because of the black car and shading. Exciting, though! Looks great to me.

    The lip of the frunk, even with the chrome blacked out, does suggest the presence of a nose cone:

    The windows look huge! With the sunroof this will be a beautifully bright and open interior. I love it.

    Congrats reservation holders. That is a really good looking CUV. JMHO.

    From what we can see of course.

    It's going to have a really good aerodynamic number.

    Interesting. Looks more like a scaled up Model S to me than past Model X prototypes.

    Thought I'd clean it up a little bit using some quick/crude photoshop and using tail lights from previous prototype photos. I'm sure others can do better, but I feel this gives a good idea of the back of the X without the camouflage, ski/whatever box and hitch.

    Here's the most revealing rear photo to me. Just look at all those gaps! There are gaps around the lights, where the front window meets the falcon door, where the falcon door meets the rear quarter panel, where the falcon door meets the rear hatch, where the rearmost side window meets the rear quarter panel and hatch...
