    Noticed a few days ago that they removed the Alpha pics and added a few of the Betas. Although the second one that I posted here looks 'shopped.

    Interesting...notice that there aren't any interior images listed in the gallery anymore?

    Hmmm...

    On Todd's picture, unless it's the lighting, there appear to be some subtle differences in the chrome trim around the windows, and perhaps the door handles as well.

    I don't remember any interior pics on the Gallery page. There are a couple on the Features page though.

    Yes, very aggressive. The first pics above aren't really appealing to me. In the first, the nose looks low and... I dunno, wimpy.

    It's probably been there awhile but first I've seen them officially state the 0-60 time as 4.5 seconds on their website (I know they've talked about it since the October event).

    Yes they added it soon after the announcement. Though I've heard Elon say 4.4 repeatedly.

    I never saw any interior pics of the beta on the Gallery page, but I'm pretty sure they had the prototype interior up for a good while.

    Either way, hopefully it's a sign that there's still plenty of refinement going on in the interior.

    There used to be one, but it was on the second page of pictures so easy to miss. It was of the alpha interior though.

    I know I've seen that bridge somewhere... help me out somebody. Off the Hwy 1, right?

    The odd lighting in the second pic could come from humongous lightning apparatus that professionals like to dabble with.

    Nope--it was the prototype, and I believe it was online even before the alpha came out. Remember, the only pictures of the alpha we saw had wires and exposed metal everywhere :).

    Both pics have been had a lot of automobile touch-up. The 2nd one is just more extreme as to make the car look like it's not actually there on the road. And indeed it might not be.

    Is the first one an HDR picture? That could explain the look.

    Hard to tell. HDR is usually only recognizable if it's done for effect or done poorly. The plant life and bridge do not show signs though.
