      The article is total FUD, nothing more.

        Looks like Duct tape has been applied and ripped off taking some of the paint with it.

              Some older pictures of RC #42, before it lost its hubcaps and was covered in duct tape.

                Looks like duct tape has been applied and ripped off, leaving some of the duct tape behind.

                  The red with aero wheels looks good....duct tape means it's a pilot test vehicle.

                  Don't sweat the rumor the model 3 is falling apart...

                    Still looks beautiful to me. If they can't accept a piece of cardboard leaning on a car, I would be more than happy to take it off their hands for them.

                      yeah - not sure what the random garbage in the street has to do with the car anyway.

                      and here's the follow-up tweet from the guy that originally posted it (thinking at the time he was being funny)

                        As the resident troll here, I think that tweet was hilarious. And quite true - ol' number 42 is looking a bit worse-for-wear.

                        It's just a shame that so-called "journalists" decided that there was a bigger story here.

                          This is the problem: so many eyeballs on the Model 3 and so many people not in the know as to what is going on or knowing Tesla had test cars driving around. They spot one of these test cars and assume it to be production and not looking "new" or "clean".

                          Ugh...

                            Or a tv news report stating that Tesla is discontinuing Model S in general instead of only RWD version causing stocks to fall -.- ...
