    That is AWESOME!

    I can't wait to see to this translates to the Model 3's interior design. No doubt it will be every bit as amazing as Elon said. I wonder if he had this guy in mind when the talked up the 3's interior at the reveal. I'm thinking yes...

    Good news. I always think Tesla's weakest point is interior. But not so sure about the picture here...

    I think interior improvements have been stewing for awhile at Tesla, but now is the time where it's coming to fruition. But no doubt they've had some conversations going with him for a bit (news lags), and the reveal could have been close to when it happened.

    I guess that means no cup-holders and door pockets :)

    How will this affect Franz? Will Felix report to Franz? Will they have conflicting design vision?

    Not sure who would report to who, but Franz is mainly gifted with exterior design chops, so no direct job conflict.
