    Ok folks, let's entertain ourselves by predicting the date when the next Model 3 prototype will be spotted for the first time, whether in the wild or at a Tesla facility. One pick per customer but you can pick again if your date passes by without success. Winner gets an autographed photo of Trevor, Melinda or Trevor's cat, winner's choice.
    My pick is January 25, 2017.

      Do you mean, some car other than the three (silver, matte black, and red) we've already seen?
      I'll go with March 31, 2017

        I'll be a little conservative though my heart would lead me to be bolder...
        As for the next pic of (new...) prototypes, I'l go for Feb. 23.
        As for the next reveal, I've already indicated my bet for March 15.
        My pick for the winner's prize will definitely be the self-autographed pic of Trev's cat!! :p

        I'm with @garsh for March 31 2017 :)

        As for the prize I'll have to check with the cat first to make sure he's ok with his likeness being used for awards. He's pretty chill so I don't think it will be a problem.

          Trev, so what you are saying is no surprise shot of prototypes before the third reveal since your thoughts were also March 31 for that? Don't you think that spy shots of newly built prototypes - which I think could be out as of Feb - may pop up before that? :)

          I think it's so close to the final reveal, early production lines being tested and far enough away from possible production start that new prototypes could been seen on that date.

          Validation prototypes would have to come off the new production line so timing is about right for early spring to see new ones.

          If there's a tie (there won't be because you're all wrong), winner determined by Electoral College or College of Cardinals, whichever is available.

                February 14th. Does camouflaged count?

                Thank you kindly.

                  What colors do you all expect to see at the final reveal for the new prototypes? I'm guessing you will see the deep metallic blue that you can see on your My Tesla page on the website :)

                  Also I'm going with March 31! :) I wish it was tomorrow though...or any day sooner lol.

                      From earlier quotes I remain a bit bolder by two weeks... @garsh , the race to the cat picture is still on!!
                      As for the color, @bmost88 , funny you would say that, 'cause I though the exact same thing on the blue... After keeping it in front of our eyes for all this time on the reservation confirmation on the My Tesla page, they almost have no other choice than to include that... I'd also bet on the nice bright red from the first reveal... yet mobile this time!! :p:p

                            Please, somebody tell my what is the reference to cat pictures? The female creature that I live with has 30 cats (yes, all indoors). And, I have pictures of all of them. Am I missing out on something here?

                            I really DON'T want a cat-picture, since I love dogs!
                            But I will still try to pick a 'spot-the-prototype-date' anyway.
                            I am convinced that the official third presentation will be on March 31. That being a Friday and since it obviously needs to be in the Spring (= March 21 or later), I believe a next new picture of a Model 3 prototype will be 'leaked' a week before March 31, to generate publicity before the presentation. Making it Thursday March 22.
                            How is that for deduction...?
