    See the dash of the red Model 3 in this official render: https://i.imgur.com/rlGQouf.jpg

    There is clearly a hump on the dash for an instrument cluster.

    I don't know if I would read too much into that. Typically, renders start with standardized stock images that are then modified.

    Don't read anything into those renders. It might have that hump, but also Elon had repeatedly said it won't and thus could just be a quick-n-dirty 3D model with a basic "it's a car" interior.

    If the dashboard is such a State Secret, they certainly wouldn't reveal it to a mere graphics artist so he could do his render of a Supercharger concept. I think some artistic license comes into play here.

    This is not a picture. It is a rendering from an artist. Please do not put too much into this.

    There is a tiny spaceship in that recess. It will "feel like a spaceship" because you will literally be able to touch a miniature spaceship model while driving.

    why couldn't these models be correct according to some version of the car? Tesla must have CAD models of the cars... model s seems pretty spot on

    Mods, can we get the title of this changed? there was absolutely no confirmation of anything in that artist rendering?

    Unless you think Elon was straight up lying when he said there would only be one screen, I don't see why this debate continues.

    Yep exactly. Most of these renders start with stock items and then are modified. Accuracy of the dash is completely unimportant to that render, so I doubt it is going to be a 100% accurate render.

    What is more telling is that none of the recent RC pictures show a dash hump.

    That caught my attention in the rendering, too, but it makes no sense with the rest of the guidance we've gotten. I'm guessing it's a mistake, but we'll see in a couple months.

    I definitely see a hump... in fact, TWO humps. Clear as day.

    Since the two speedos do not agree in the picture above, we'll need a third speedometer to know how fast we're really going.

    "Man with watch knows what time it is; man with two watches is never quite sure.", says the old proverb...

    I've got an analog speedometer and two GPS displays in my Roadster, and frequently none of them agree.

    Huh. From all the discussions here, I thought most of us were very aware of where to find the current firmware rev counter on the lower left corner of the "T" popup.



    Or was that not what you meant? :p
