The model x may look like this...
I know it's a quick PSHOP job, but that doesn't look bad!
Not bad because we can get a vision based on the Model S body design.
I see Model X as more of an SUV than a Station Wagon version of the S.
Agreed. The station wagon version seems a bit redundant.
lol.. you probably think that this looks like a station wagon too.
It will resemble something similar to the Porsche Cayenne, but with Tesla's own distinctive design language.
Your quick and dirty photoshop kinda looks like a wagon because you didn't increase the size of the windows or give any more headroom.
I did not extend it higher because I wanted it to resemble the general proportions of the concept drawing Tesla had previously released to the public.
Teslas mock sort of reminds me of mazda's crossovers. Well, we'll see at least an early design in 3 months
Jaguar crossover concepts:
(By the way, rumors about a Jaguar crossover say it may be all aluminum)
Note, Cayenne recently got re-designed and is more 'sleek' and car like now...

How different will the Model X be from the version shown at the Tesla Roadshow?
Also, whatever happen to this being the Tesla Model X? The Lotus APX
Tangent/detour/red-herring. Some people thought since Lotus supplied Roadster chassis technology Tesla might use APX for Model X.
I think Tesla has since hired enough in-house talent to do their own chassis, and I doubt they go back to Lotus for anything substantial like that.
I doubt we see Tesla ever build another car off of a modified ICE car chassis. There is too much to be gained by optimizing the design based on the packaging benefits of an under floor battery/pack and integrated PEM/Motor/gearbox between the wheels.
Agreed, plus I'd prefer they not follow that styling. It's ugly IMO.
I see... Now how differently will the "X" be from the roadshow Model S based version?
