    If this is it, it will be amazing. Just a shrunken down version of the Model S. I've been saying the car needs to be what the BMW 3 series is to the 5 series, effectively a smaller version with the same general design. If this image is in fact the Model III, then they've gone that route. Seriously hoping they don't get stupid and make it look like something to compete with the Bolt or the BMW i3. Certainly wouldn't be a customer if they go that route.

    Hard to gauge the size in this image. I guess it could also be the freshened up version of the Model S??? Has headlights matching the Model X, but still has the nose cone. Which I have to say, I'm not a fan of, but it is better than the front of the Model X. Definitely don't like the direction they went on the X. As of yet, haven't found a better option for the nose cone and it is an identifying feature of Tesla.

    That was backstage at the Model X release. Absolutely positively nothing to do with Model 3.

    That is certainly not a 3.
    Looks like the white X prototype that I saw over a year ago at the Palo Alto showroom.
