    I just saw a clip on Instagram of the new Top Gear and I'm 99.9% certain I saw the nose of a Model X, albeit very, very briefly. There's just no mistaking Tesla wheels and that nose. Judging by the headlights, it's an X. See for yourself: Instagram video by Top Gear • May 21, 2016 at 11:29am UTC

    Clarkson and crew are gone. Will this now be a positive take on Tesla and other EV's?

    There is a shot of the tailgate of a white X with California plates.

    I managed to pause the video in the right place. It's definitely a White Model X nose in the shot. It'll be interesting to see what that means.

    Judging by what seems to be some politically correct moves by the BBC, likely an attempt to undo Clarkson's very un-PC nature, I think Tesla will receive some positive spin this time. Fair treatment at minimum. What I'm saying is the BBC wants a more forward-thinking image so I don't see them trashing EV's.

    In the app I couldn't pause it but going into my own link I was able to. Definitely an X. Looking forward to watching.

    They did have a MS on the most recent episode of Top Gear US. Was surprised to see it.
