    Tesla Model 3 prototype goes on rare outing during solar roof event [Gallery]

    We are still digesting the event that Tesla held last night. The solar roof products are undoubtedly stunning, but we are disappointed by the lack of details about pricing and the absence of the “integrated” aspect with the Powerwall 2 and new Tesla charger that didn’t end up being unveiled – more on that later.

    I finally got close to the Model 3 before they fenced it off.

      so what was your impression (thinking specifically size) vs your S?
      And I assume this was the original proto from March 31st? or could you see anything new/updated?

      Drafting blog post... it's smaller than S, but bigger than I was hoping for... I was hoping that the 3 would be closer to my ActiveE (slightly smaller than a 1 series BMW).

          Blank stares. (like off to the distance and never heard that idea before.)

          LOL. Ohhhhh, you mean the L.A. 50 yard stare. You look to the left or right of someone's eye-line for someone better to talk to.
