    I don't think it looks like a Tesla.

    It has some resemblance, sure, but it's fairly different..

    It's not identical, no, for obvious reasons. Same hood line, same profile, same side windows, and set up identically do the Radio Flyer Model S. Maybe I'm crazy, I don't know.

    These don't look similar to you?

    It looks to me they made the bare minimum changes they could get away with to avoid being sued (ours is nearly identical but only has 2 "doors"!). Plus I thought a Spider Tesla would be funny. And it is (well, to me, anyway).

    Dunno, they look different enough to where I don't think it's a copy... could be wrong though.

    I guess I should let it go.

    To me, it's definitely a knock-off with just enough design differences to hopefully give them an out. Then, again, Apple was able to successfully sue Samsung for rounded corners. :) They're just trying to capitalize on the Tesla Model S's panache and to associate that with their toy car.
