Big opportunity for perforated vinyl wraps of Confederate battle flags and Union Jacks.

I'd go with a double-headed eagle.

And just why would I waste my time watching a damned video? If they can't bother to write, they aren't interested in my business.

So what is the drag coefficient ? I'm seeing a goal of .20, but that rear window angle is might steep !

If only they flattened it more, kind of like the CRX, Insight, and Prius, and allowed more cargo space...

You where very close !

Tesla aiming only 0.21 !!!

How they can have gone from a already small 0.24 on the S model to 0.21 ?

They don't use rear camera, dont have rear whell skirt, don't even have pizza pans !

Tesla's Model 3, probably the fastest and largest 'crowdfunding' project EVA...$10 Billion in 36 hours...speculation of 500K orders!

Existing Tesla production facilities and capacities were expecting only a 1/4 - 1/2 of the pre-ordered Model 3s. The sales of Model S and even the new Model X are expected to be affected and production deliveries will even be made slower, some could be waiting till 2019-2020! Expect new Tesla production facilities/partners.

The long years but refundable $1K 'wait' might be an opportunity for other EV manufacturers to fill the need for 'newer' no-waiting and state-of-the-art models.
