    it's hard to tell without perspective and I'm sure it will be fine but I can't help but think tht trunk opens very high and could hit my garage door.

    I don't think it is as tall as that photo leads you to thinking it is

    Here's some various shots with the trunk open and people nearby for perspective.

    Browsing the forum today led me to believe you can find a picture of a model 3 for any random topic. You have a gift!

    and one more image of the trunk open at the MotorTrend drive
    Franz V.H. is an inch or two shorter than Elon, who is 6'2" (are other CEOs heights common knowledge?), so would say when open it's less than 7'0". My garage door is 7'8" so if that's typical, plenty of room :)

    Pretty sure you know why I rated this funny (in the absence of a 'hilarious' button... :D). ;)

    Obviously @Michael Russo doesn't want to overuse the funny rating, so he only rates half.

    He's about to retire to southern France, that is the definition of a happy person.

    Ok. Let me think about this for a second. I rated one post out of 6 funny... ?! How does that even come close to 'half'?! o_Oo_O
    @Idur is a wise man... :D
