    At this point, I'm literally tired of seeing pics/videos of PUP Model 3. I wanna see pics/vids of the standard (non-PUP) Model 3. So, I'm creating a placeholder here, for the first set of non-pup M3s to be sighted (whenever they eventually go into prod). Please post pics/vids here. Thanks

    Given production hell on the first production configuration this could still be months away.

    I am assuming they would run some test cars without PUP on the manual line before committing to full production, now that the manual line is presumably free as the Model 3 prod line is ramping up. So you might see base config cars running about way before the actual production starts.

    Ditto for EU and standard range cars.

    If they delayed the Semi event to focus on Model 3 first production I can’t imagine them wasting time with anything other than the first production Model 3.

    I meant full production of the non-PUP and EU versions. That is, while the prod line is churning out a single variant right now, they will need to make test builds of the non-PUP and EU cars without breaking production. Hence the manual line, and hence the possibility of seeing other cars than the initial production before they actually start producing them.

    I'm hoping we start seeing some RCs of non-PUP cars on the streets in SF Bay area soon.
