The Model 3 nose will most likely conform with the family 'face'

The official refreshed nose for the Model S shows a rhinoplasty. Instead of the fashionable 'angry nose/grille' of contemporary designs, Tesla family goes for a pinched pixie-look.

Agreed. It screams as loudly as some of the more outrageous "fish mouth" and "predator" grilles on other brands. The oval was tasteful.

Fake grilles are no more tasteful than fake hood scoops, etc.

Fake crap to make it look like you've got old school tech is lame.

I think I posted this in the other thread already...

But the hatch will be on the "crossover" based on the Model 3 platform, which will ultimately be the more popular bodystyle, going by current sales trends.

FYI, the trunk is in the front, no need to waste money on 2 trunks.

Front trunks are great for one crowd:



But not, say, 99% of us:



In addition to real, usable storage space, hatches are more versatile...



Than frunks:
