That's an SUV/Minivan? I thought those classifications were supposed to have some sort of room behind the second row seats?! I guess with a range of only 257 miles, long-range comfort isn't actually a concern.

Was Musk a fan of Baa Baa Black Sheep? Perhaps a "Grasshopper" wannabe under Master Po? Hum ...

The Model 3 was supposed to be the smaller more affordable version of the S. Similar to a BMW 3 is to a 7 series.

Don't like the gull wing doors. I would like it better if it came with normal doors.

I've got a P85D and loooooovvve it - I really look forward to just driving around every day - it's stupid fun. Not interested in trading of course!

The X is not my style, too minivan/crossover of a look but actually looks somewhat sporty in black with dark rims.
