    Maybe a dumb question, but why does Fred refer to the RCs as 'prototypes' then later he talks of the Silver 'pre-alpha' from the reveal ?! o_O

    Il est français? He's confused about the proper terms. Happens

    Release candidates are real cars made with real parts, on real production tooling. They could be sold to the public but can't by law.

    An alpha, in Tesla speak, is the first prototype built after you finish the CAD, also known as an engineering validation prototype. A beta is a preproduction car made on preproduction tooling with sometimes hand made parts.
