Tesla Model C

We are starting to see concept model renderings of what the Tesla Model C will look like:

Not bad in my opinion, but the back top and sides should extend further, at least as far as the rear wheels. It is supposed to be a 4 seat car, despite what the articles may say.

Looks a lot like the FT-CH in my opinion. I loved that concept too.

...maybe I'm TOO old-fashioned, but I prefer a 'short-HOOD & long-TRUNK' design, because it's more aerodynamic overall--plus--you also get some cargo/battery/gastank area in the process.

So the driver seat basically consists of the rear passenger's legs? Sounds uncomfortable to both people. Something about how the body line along the side of the car shoots off the back looks odd to me. Overall I like it though

That really seems pretty uncomfortable for a 4-seater.
