What kind of car is this?
Are you sure? The tail lights do not match any Jaguar XF image I can find.
Also, does that car have any tail-pipes? I can not tell.
This is what a Jag XF looks like:
I guess I didn't look close enough?
Model S alpha?
Where was this pic taken?
Looks like Page Mill near El Camino in Palo Alto...
Poor fit on the body panels...
The general shape and window shape is very close to
But the lights are quite different. This proto from TEG feels more bulky than the prototype based on the Mercedes. The grey/red proto felt more subtile to me...
It may be a Panamera but I'm not totally sure.
The rear view of a Porsche Panamera.
Ok TEG... I give up. We all know that you have the answer somewhere...please please tell us what that mysterious car is called.
I don't think it is a Panamera, which looks like this:
You don't know? Where did you get the photo?
If you zoom in and squint a bit, it does look like 68106.
From the lines/shapes/creases, the Model S by far looks the closest. It's probably the alpha prototype. If it is we'll find out pretty soon.
The prototype looks much better IMO.
Stopcrazypp you may be right. I just notice there is no tail pipe. I think the "Alpha" has been spotted in the wild.
TEG how are you so lucky to be the trailing car behind this new mystery car? Why haven't any other car sites posted any other pic of this car? Why haven't you posted another pics yourself? OK.... Its the "alpha" Model S isn't it?
Look a few posts ago at TEG's most recent post in this thread.
After blowing the mystery car image up 5x and increasing brightness/contrast, it seems pretty clear that there's no tailpipe:
What appears to be a complete lack of a vehicle manufacturer logo stands out pretty markedly, I think.
Lots of similarities between the prototype and this car, namely:
-Lip at the top center of the trunk
-Horizontal ledge above the license plate
-General tail light shape
-Tail light straddling trunk joint
-Curve at base of trunk
-Body panel seams on corner of cars
-Curved shape of the rear window
-wider sides at rear wheels
If this is the alpha build, I think I might like the alpha backside better than the prototype...but I do like them both...
