    Does it look like there is a smoked glass option for the headlight lenses?

    We get a peek a what a glider looks like.

    No inner door panels.
    TESLA logo on back missing
    Rear "wing" off
    Front nose logo missing...

    I'd say he's pretty happy! :smile:

    Also: 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, did they fit drivetrain 1.5?

    THAT is the kind of thing I've been wanting to see. This is where it starts to get real.

    I think it might look that way just because of the large contrast with the yellow paint.

    Malcolm,

    you are correct when you say "FOUR WHOLE CARS DELIVERED", but I think that it is equally important to note that only two of those cars were built since the beginning of "regular series production" on March 17th. The other two cars (Elon's and Jeff's) were built prior to that. So, with that in mind, I think we should be saying "TWO WHOLE CARS BUILT AND DELIVERED SINCE THE START OF REGULAR SERIES PRODUCTION". That's 123 days ago for anyone that's counting...

    All the best,

    Chris H.

    vfx,

    I think you may be right about the headlight covers....

    The pictures of the "glider" were taken in Hethel, UK, so the car may not have been at the "completed glider" stage. It may have just been during the glider production. I'm pretty sure that the inner door panels are in place by the time it reaches San Carlos.

    All the best,

    Chris H.
