    And their satellites...

    Leaking on product evolutions builds excitement and is generally good for business. Leaking brandy new stuff doesn’t do much but let potential competitors know what you’re up to.

    Think the Model Y isn’t scaled correctly in this photo. I highly doubt it will have a narrower cabin as indicated in the pic

    Narrower cabin than what? I don’t think those two pics should be considered to the same scale. I think the proportions of the Y itself are likely accurate in its own photo. I would guess the 3 and Y will be super close in width.

    In the included side by side pic above, the cabin in the Y looks narrower than the 3. In reality, it will be he same or (hopefully) wider.

    Looks great. I do wonder if the front end is going to be flatter than that though.

    Yeah. The pics just aren’t to the same scale.

    It’s going to be kind of weird if it looks A LOT like the model 3 just because Tesla has been so innovative in their design vehicle after vehicle but I think it’s a decent and safe mood. It should sell millions.

    I just hope they get the rear right, ideally more like the Autocar rendering than a Model X....

    I want a small, sporty looking SUV...

    I’d be happy with any of the following...

    Will it be the first Tesla with a rear windshield wiper?

    Will it have amber turn signals??

    I which that there will be a shooting break (or hatchback) version of the Model 3.

    Lol all the questions!!! If the X doesn’t have a rear wiper I don’t think the Y will

    If the back window is sloped enough, there is no need for a rear wiper. The X doesn't have one because of a combination of the slope and wipers create drag. I suspect the Y will not have a wiper and will have a fairly steeply sloped rear window.

    Are you saying a steep window does, or does not, need a wiper? IMHO, the lack of a rear wiper on the S is one of its few flaws. Well, either the lack of a rear wiper or the rear hatch's insane magnetic attraction to snow (which I always blamed on the car's aerodynamics).

    A rear wiper would help, but it isn't necessary. I believe there are requirements for a rear wiper in some jurisdictions if the roof and back window have a certain geometry (common to many hatchbacks), so manufacturers put them there. The aerodynamics of the shape causes gunk to collect in bad weather on the back window. But they are not required if the aerodynamics of the vehicle are different. With a sharp slope, gunk doesn't tend to accumulate on the back window, so manufacturers don't need to put a wiper there.

    I've driven my S in the snow (great handling in snow compared to other cars I've driven), but not in much falling snow. I don't know how snow accumulates on the back, but I'll take your word for it. I don't use the center mirror much because the visibility out the back is so poor in general. I got used to poor rear visibility from my Buick which had giant c pillars and tiny outside mirrors compared to modern cars (it was a 1992).

    Suddenly, I am reminded of the "First rule of Italian driving:"

    Our S has 4 cup holders in the front, not sure about the back I don’t ride back there.
