Model 3 in the wild (with video)...

PhillyGal | 2017年3月10日

Woohoo!

It looks great, esp from the back.

Is it a new car or one of the prototypes we've seen? I can't tell...

Interior looks to be not redesigned. You can see screen popping out. Which I expect to look more integrated in dash when interior is shown.

That's one of the old ones. The trunk opening and front end are identical and look at the tread wear on the tires. You wouldn't put used up old tires on a brand new prototype!

Hard to tell but I don't see anything new or unusual about the steering wheel either. Definitely think this is an old one.

Even if it's the old one , it's still a beautiful sight in my opinion(#over dramatic).
I really do like how it looks, I look forward to seeing the final improved design.

The SUV following behind it has a '51' sticker on it. That's the name for the team that are putting the Model 3 together.

It is a beautiful sight to behold.

@rrobin36 - good eye.

I think it is odd that they would still have the "Model 3" license plate on it - not very sneaky. Though as much as the Area 51 SUV rode its bumper, I guess that not many people would see the license plate.

@mntlvr23

I don't think they were trying to be sneaky. Problem some employee won an internal company contest and got to drive one of the old prototypes for the day / week / whatever.

@Carl the person who posted the video said the prototype was doing loops around SpaceX, and speculated it was some sort of testing. Possible they outfitted the reveal prototype with something they were checking out.....

KP in NPT | 2017年3月10日

But I agree...not necessarily sneaky. :)

@KP - "Possible they outfitted the reveal prototype with something they were checking out....."
One thing for certain, it wasn't outfitted to test out the optional tow hitch .... yet

Badbot | 2017年3月11日

It was fitted with something new....
A T sticker on the hood. look close it is just a bit darker than the paint.
It was trolling for photographers and caught a big one.

The T sticker showed up at the solar roof reveal, along with the newer steering wheel with buttons.

I'm pretty sure the Model 3 license plate was on the prototype too so it's the same car.

A longer version of the video.

im pretty sure Tesla is not letting anyone know what it looks like until its ready for production.

carlk | 2017年3月13日

There will at most probably some new front and rear treatments but those little things do alter the car's look significantly.
