    Of all the release candidate spy shots, this one has made me feel this is getting real more than any other.

    "The Model 3 is expected to only have the glass roof option..."

    That doesn't fit the definition of the word "option" that I learned in school. ;)

      The idea of putting anything on the roof of this amazing all glass roof (standard, @UncleT , :D) is as foreign to me as seeing a scaffolding plus curtains in from of da Vinci's Mona Lisa in the Louvres Museum... :confused: :rolleyes:

        Maybe a picture can be painted on the bottom of the cargo box a la sistine chapel!

          Can someone say out of experience if these roof racks will likely be removable? Would be ugly to drive around with them all the time :rolleyes:

          Guten Morgen, @Dash !
          I can't imagine it any other way. In addition, roof racks as I trust you know are normally accessories and not delivered standard with the vehicle...
          Nochmals einen wunderschönen sonnigen Hamburger Tag! ;)

            Crossbars appear to be removable. Not sure about mounting points. $500 option from Tesla. Important side note, this option is only available with the panoramic sun roof...not solid glass or metal roofs. At least not on the Model S.
