As many know I am looking for root causes of unusual odors in the cabin. As a heads up I found that it is easy for debris to build up on a screen, not easily seen, deep inside the fresh air intake. To see this and clean it out you must remove the plastic "grill" cover found in the frunk. Here are a few shots (none show the "grille" in place since you can see it for yourself when you open the frunk). I recommend you check this area out and vacuum the debris out if you see any. Debris will restrict airflow and organic debris will rot and create odor. You will note there are a couple of "levels" in the duct where debris can build up (the redwood leaves shown in one pic are not the same ones shown in the pic deep inside the duct).
I took a few pics and when I put a camera deep in the air intake "duct" I found stuff:
