    Saw this picture. Not sure if its doctored, but looked pretty good. Front seems to have significant changes to nose, fog lights, headlamps etc.

    That, I believe is the Alpha Model S that preceded what we have today.

    Looks a lot like a Jaguar. Also, where is this photo taken? Looks like a factory.
    But it also looks like this picture was take before August 8th 2014 because I found it in an article published on that date.

    That is definitely the pre-production prototype. Google "Model S prototype" and you'll see it.

    Never mind. It could have been a scope :)

    You can always use Google image search (Google Images) to see if an image has been published before.

    I have always liked that look. I see hints of a Maser in the front.
