    I wonder what the international legality is of having no speedometer directly in your field of view

    You'd think mirrors are more important but none of those are in your field of view when looking straight down the road.... actually when looking straight down the road you probably can't see your speedometer anyway by the way the human eye focuses.

    I disagree... It is missing the chrome trim and brighter "T" Tesla logo... Looks like the model S for kids version of the Model S steering wheel
    Please don't....

    I get cutting costs... But this looks too cheap. No decorative elements just black steering wheel with T logo... It isn't even shapely

    It might depend on how international law makers view these things.

    They source the steering wheels from Mercedes... maybe you don't like Mercedes.

    This isn't the final steering wheel.

    So, is that all you needed? Now that someone has told you that, I guess the thread can be closed. :)

    What makes u so sure? I know Elon made a comment about the first steering wheel on the reveal prototypes which looked even worse (that it wasn't the final) ... But did he ever say that about this one?

    You wanted someone to tell you it isn't the final steering wheel, so I did. I have no idea whether it's true or not. That was not a condition of your request.

    This is known in many circles as 'being snarky'. You're welcome! :D

    A shapely steering wheel?

    I guess that's one way to ensure you keep your hands on the wheel.

    is this not a bright T logo? how much more dressed up do you expect a steering wheel to be with fluff? I'd rather It feels right than has extra chrome trim

    Terrible design, 20 years back maybe, but 2017? Come on... How much you can save on a steering wheel?

    I'm 99% confident that this will be the final steering wheel.

    It's too late in the game to be validating candidate steering wheel prototypes. And before people jump on me about Elon's "spaceship" comment, I remind everyone that Elon also called the Model X 2nd row seats "sculptural beauty" (a serious wtf in terms of form over folding function).
