Will Tesla keep the Rear Long Third Brake Light in the next design?

Discussion in 'Model S' started by Maximilien, Jul 17, 2018.


In Model S 2.0 Redesign, will long third brake light become shorter?

  1. Yes, Tesla needs to keep material cheap to make more margin. It will be short like Model 3

    Fun speculation here. Do you think Model S 2.0 will keep the rear third brake light?

    This brake is how I can easily spot fellow Tesla Model S when I drive. Only cars with long third brake I have seen are BMW 6 coupe and Audi 7 series. Please tell me what other cars also have it. Also from far away, I can tell Tesla from Jaguar XF, just looking at the third brake.

    I find it visually stunning and sporty, and I love it. It is one of the reasons that triggered my Model S purchase.

    We see that Model X has medium length brake light and Model 3 has short brake light, too. I see the trend is keep the material more "economic." Just a speculation here.

    Do you think it will go away based on the trend or will Tesla keep the "exclusive" long third brake as a visual feature?

    Any comments or opinions about long third brake light are appreciated!!
