- What do you think about the front end including the lack of a grill?

Looks great. No grill will be the norm in the future, and grills will look horribly outdated. A grill will only remind people of how crude our transportation was back in the day of using a fraction of generated heat to propel a vehicle, while radiating, conducting, and convecting the majority of the heat away.

- What do you think of the full Panoramic roof ?

Haven't seen it yet. Probably neat, but there had better be a way to reflect sunlight out of the cabin to keep it from becoming an oven.

- What do you think of the Specs?

215 mile range. 0-60 MPH in 6 seconds. Supercharging. Autopilot. $35k... if the car delivers on all these things, they nailed it.

- What do you think of the steel and aluminum mix now?

Don't know anything about that. What's new about steel and aluminum? Seems like standard materials for a car, and it's probably standard for good reason (cost, strength).
