The Model 3, on-topically, is likely to share the corporate culture.

OTOH it's a rear-engine rear-driver just as [deity] intended.
The first case of what? I looked through the thread and I didn't find anything.

Tesla deactivating a used car. I can't find it either, so nevermind.

I do find successful stretches, including a hearse.

I don't think they've deactivated a car, but I could be wrong. They will refuse to provide service, supercharger access, and sell parts if they flag a VIN in their system, which is usually after a car has been in a substantial accident and hasn't been brought to a service center to be "re-certified" or whatever.

Some geeky pictures of the Model 3.

Edit: added front intake grill, with (thermal?) damper.

Man is that nice and clean.

I'm kind of surprised there are no strakes though. I would have thought with all the aero detail they'd have strakes behind the wheels. Maybe there wasn't enough real benefit to offset the risk of the car looking more "dorky."

I immediately thought of strakes, too. If I owned one, I would add them. I think they would have to be small, as it is fairly close to the ground.

A couple more pictures from Mike Lombardi‎ on Facebook.

I found Tesla's EPA certification report for the 3 Long Range (LR) with some pretty impressive numbers.

https://www3.epa.gov/otaq/datafiles/...SLV00.0L13.PDF

Compared to Tesla's test results for their other cars, only the 100D goes noticeably farther on the highway test, and nothing touches the 3's range on the city test.

https://www3.epa.gov/otaq/datafiles/...SLV00.0L1S.PDF
https://www3.epa.gov/otaq/datafiles/...V00.0L2SV2.PDF
https://www3.epa.gov/otaq/datafiles/...V00.0L2XV3.PDF

Also, the 3 LR probably comes with an 80.5kWh battery (78+kWh usable). I think that's larger than the pack on the S 75, which explains why they're using "Long Range" instead of numbers. My guess is that they may also underestimate the 3 LR's range on it's EPA range ratings to avoid cannibalizing sales from the Model S.

Besides that, it's mpge is better than the Bolt and worse than the Ioniq (126mpge I think?), which has been confirmed via low res screenshots of the Monroney sticker. It puts down 258hp, and has a PM motor. It might have a limited slip differential (it's RWD, but under regen it references "Both"), but that could just be a typo.

I believe the Model S has torque vectoring in software, rather than a limited-slip. Through the automatic braking system.

The surprising thing I heard about the Model 3's motor is - that it has permanent magnets.

They have entered the 21st century.

More efficient but less power dense, a very good sacrifice
