    We here at Unplugged Performance are fortunate enough to be neighbors with Tesla and Space X. Which gave us a front row seat to last week’s Model 3 release event.

    Although only a select few were able to attend the event we didn’t want the rest of the local community to feel left out. That’s why we decided to celebrate in true Tesla fashion by throwing our own Frunkgate pre-party.

    We had a great turn out with local Model S and Model X owners in attendance. The event was a success and some of us were even lucky enough to see the Model 3’s being test driven right outside our doors.

    Thank you to any TMC members who made it out! It was great to witness the next stage of automotive history with you all.

    As I've said before, can't wait to see what Unplugged does with the Model 3!

    Thanks for the extra pics!!

    Some pretty serious meats on the back of the M3! I wonder what the base model will have?

    Hehe... when I saw "Frunkgate" in the thread title, my initial reaction was that there was some kind of supposed cover-up of some issue with the Model 3's frunk (à la Watergate, etc.). ;)

    The bigger issue with me (initially) was the rear trunk. My rage has since cooled off. It is now just at a low simmer. :D Agreed. Seems like these guys do some cool stuff. Would loved to see an Unplugged-massaged 3. :cool:

    Have you already seen today's tweets from Elon?: Info and Hints from Elon Tweets

    While not a lift/hatchback, this holds promise of at least ameliorating some of the concerns. Looking forward to seeing the redesigned trunk.
