    This is super cool. Even if we don't learn anything new (somewhat likely), it will be cool to see pics from inside the GF.

    EM has a flair for the dramatic. Maybe he will be there to show off the GF and Model 3. Maybe he has "bombshell" news for us.....


    we can dream, right?

    Pretty sure he has access to a G-V.....


    But yea....he probably won't be there today, which means we won't get any really cool news, since he loves to be the one sharing that with us.

    UNLESS....he sends a timely tweet, which he has been known to do....

    Don't see anything wrong with that.

    MT has a rather inflated opinion of itself, based on all the puffery in that piece.

    They kind of do. See their Apple car article where they made it seem like they got the scoop over everyone else (when it was just something they had some one make up).

    If anyone is on social media with Motor Trend, could you have them take some measurements of the length and width and settle the question (or at least take a perfect side profile shot with something for reference in size)?

    Also, some better pictures of the trunk opening would be helpful (the ones from the event were too dark to see much detail).

    Yep, gotta be. Several threads out there talking about battery production that would be needed to convert most car sales to EVs.
