    From images published on teslamotors.com, I've compiled the profiles of the Model S, Model Ξ, and Model X (in that order) below to show the similarities and subtle differences. All we're missing now is Model Y to have a SΞXY profile! :D

    Here's a smaller version of the same compilation image for those who don't have giant desktop screens and would like to see all 3 cars in the same frame:

    I'm really digging the super-short overhangs fore and aft on the Model 3. Did anybody get a chance to glimpse what size wheels those are on it? I'm looking forward to seeing some Photoshopped HRE wheels or something on a 3.

    I still think the MS is the prettiest. Not that I am biased...

    I think the Roadster and the Model X got together and had a beautiful love child. Its definitely SEXY! Game Over ICE!

    Thanks for the photos. From that view the Model ☰ fascia looks great -- but then I've never been much of a fan of gaping mouths full of teeth.

    Did you guys reserve Model ☰? I reserved 2 for the future. Very exciting to wait in line yesterday.

    I did but didn't wait in line. Stopped by the Corte Madera store at around 3pm and no one was around but Tesla employee and one other customer!

    Nice comparison! Can anyone do a Photoshop overlay between Model S and 3 (use like 30% transparency for Model 3)? Line them up using the center point of front wheel or rear wheel. Model 3 is supposed to be a bit shorter (in height) than S. So the scaling is right.
