    Actually, I cannot think of a ANY other car that looks better than this and Tesla's top goal was not really to make the best looking performance saloon yet it just looks fantastic. What is happening I may be falling for this big time :)

      Cant quite tell- is the "mustache" there? looks like there is room for this finishing touch. The duckbill seems to have been softened. trunk opening had to determine from these shots. know it has been tweaked, but not clear how.
      This is a nice looking car. It will do quite nicely in my garage.

          I thought it was just a cable attached to the tow bar that was left in place. There are other pictures show the missing bumper cover plug on the blue car where the tow bar screws into the bumper.

          They probably had some issues with this vehicle ;)

          In the previous images of the blue one it looked like there was a sensor or led or something attached to the front. Chances are it's why you see a wire now it's disconnected

            @ AZ Desert,
            It will do quite nicely in my garage.
            You are a big show off. I bet you get a lot of people in your garage, when you place a advertisementboard at the roadside of your front garden. When you ask everybody $2 you soon can buy a model S.

              This tear-drop shape might well be why they accomplished a wonderful drag coefficient. They must have spent a lot of time in wind tunnels and CAD screens. Can this investment be patented? Will other cars steal this look and we won't be able to pick out a Tesla from the crowd of rain drops?
