    IS THAT A FREAKING SIGNATURE RED MODEL 3 IN THE FRONT? WHY YES... YES IT IS!!! :)

    Maybe people who waited in line for the 3 are getting something special after all.

    :)

    Unless some of us who waited in line don't want a red car, then it won't be something special. ;)

    I'm going for a fancy new bronze paint option - that is quite a bit too orange to be Signature Red (though it is an artist's concept, so maybe I'm being too picky about color accuracy. :) )

    Realising it's just a render, but what roof option are they depicting there?

    Funny, I was just looking at it and had the same thought. The Model S behind it has an all-glass roof that is completely clear in the same area, so whatever is on the Model 3 doesn't appear to be tinting. And the black on the rear glass has a little bit of a gradient to it, so it doesn't appear to be metal either. Is it supposed to be the mythical solar roof option?

    That's looks like it's supposed to be the panoramic rear glass, but it's not the highest-quality model I've seen.

    There appear to be quite a couple Model 3's in that image.

    3D render. The 3D artist could be colouring and tinting with any kind of mapping they made up. Means nothing in the scheme of what will be real. I remember hearing about a S*$tstorm a 3D guy caused once when he did a render for a new lego site and coloured a brick orange just because it looked nice in the design. No such lego piece existed but suddenly people around the world were contacting lego trying to order it :)

    One photo, I love the proportions. The next, not a fan. Then love, then hate, love hate........

    Really can't wait to see this car in person.

    I agree. To my eyes the color does not look like a signature red, it seems to have a cooper tint to it.

    That's a signature Model 3 and the male person standing in front of it is Elon Musk. I can tell by the pose.

    I hope that everyone that put their reservation before the reveal gets the option to get the special signature color. (in line and online reservations).

    I don't see an X in that image. So that means that Tesla is definitely ending X production by the end of 2017. Proof positive.
