    Quite forward thinking of @jassummers to copyright the picture for 2107. ;) In all seriousness though, that is a sharp looking Tesla! I'm loving the shape of that door edge.

    Yeah. Because the longer it takes before Model ☰, the more their sales will drop, before falling off a cliff. :D

    Is that guy driving hands free or are they stopped? On closer inspection it looks like they are stopped at a stoplight.

    That blue is getting nicer by the second.

    Current dilemma...

    Wife does not like blue cars and I want a blue car :)

    It just hit me after seeing this photo; I think all the RCs we've seen have had the same interior with black seats/wood dash/light colored headliner.

    Correct. Part of me thinks this will be the only interior option for the Model 3 but I'm still hoping for white. This reminds me of the Model X release candidate period when all of them were black interiors as well. It wasn't until the reveal where we saw tan and white were options, so there's still hope!

    Did a bit of cleanup and moved the info-graph discussion and charge door conversations over to their own threads - plus a fair amount of off topic moved as well.

    Wow, from that view it looks A LOT like an "S"!

    Might be an optical illusion but that's a lot more low slung than I thought it would be. Very sexy.

    It's killing me that nobody's getting a close-up shot of the tires to reveal the wheel/tire sizes.

    I'd just really, really like to know that, and it seems like it should be easy to obtain.

    i know!!! the guy that got the charge door flap photo said on TMC that he even had a conversation with the driver of that one. He could have dropped something next to the wheel and had to bend down to pick it up to at least get the size, if not an actual photo ;)

    I also looked thru Continental's passenger car & performance tires a few days ago for one that's tread matched the tires on this white RC (with three equal sized tread stripes down the center) and could not find one that matched.
