    Considering that actual Model 3 bodies don't exist, that would be hard to do. Every manufacturer uses test mules to develop new system, they are just fine for what their purpose is.

    See? Except for the distinct nose cone and the door crease, that already looks like a MS.

    You do realize they sell fake badges on Amazon right? That's clearly what this person did.....

    As for the M3 mule, I was told by an insider that Tesla used a modified MS chassis that was shortened 8 inches to replicate what the M3 would be like. To an untrained eye, it could (it did) go unnoticed.

    I still think a window into an alternate universe happened when a warp bubble incorrectly collapsed. Just sayin.

    Ah the humorless are having fits of rage right now. Oops.

    But seriously folks who gives a flying f$&@ what badge some C-141 pilot or some stranger puts on his whip?

    That's not a real Model 3. That's a hand built prototype.

    That's so offensive. They prefer to be called automobile-Americans.

    Here is a good shot of a real test mule where they cut the car in half and added length to the wheel base for testing:

    I would take my P00P to Summit Point for some track time or move back to Germany with it, but then I remembered I'm not "car people."
