    That link was posted earlier in this thread: Pictures of Model 3 from the reveal without commentary, so I was wasn't sure where and when those photos were taken. Thanks for the clarification.

    I missed that thread so sorry for the repeat posting. Seem to get some details of the seats and other bits I've not noticed before.

    But as this is a separate thread, we might as well discuss details about those photos here, I noticed this image i particular:

    [​IMG]

    The section of different material (the glossy part) used in the lower window frame looks like it could be a place for sensors/cameras?

    What do you think?

    I noticed this prototype is somewhat upgraded:
    - different steering wheel (now has two buttons)
    - cup holders without covers
    - body panels seems to be much better aligned
    - ?

    Original prototype:

    New/current prototype:

    Wow that steering wheel is so much nicer.

    Well, no, the section I meant is on the outside bottom window frame, and apart from that I would think that electrochromic glass
    would be a more elegant and less error-prone approach than mechanical blinders?

    I think it's just testing out various finishes. The mirror trim on one side are black and chrome on the other. Wouldn't get too hung up on analyzing the changes yet ;)

    Agreed, I think this is testing out different finishes and how they hold up. Good catch though and interesting nonetheless.

    It looks like the Model S steering wheel, with the two scroll buttons.

    Yeah, I know, I know :) But since they have to place the AP 2.0 cameras/sensors somewhere, the window frame might be a good place apart from the B-pillar like on the X/S.

    I just noticed that the brake pedal rubber is the III logo. Cool!

    In the demos it was on the left side of the center screen.

    And there's plenty of speculation that there'll be a HUD as well.

    The center display in the prototype cars shows the speed in the upper left corner.

    That interior is unbelievably minimalist. I have to think Unveil Pt.2 will solve that in whatever way. While this is the sort of thing you would expect for a self-driving interior, at least at first you'll still need to manually drive so looking down to the right while driving isn't great for that. Also I hope there will be a joystick option later on. More room and ultra-futuristic - while making perfect sense for self driving. Having it motorized/retractable would be a nice touch too. :D
