For those (like me) who did not get a diecast Model 3 with our delivery and who can't justify paying $250 for the fancy version in the Tesla online store, Hot Wheels will be offering a Model 3 by late April:

Obviously, it won't be as intricatedly detailed, well-made or large as the "official" version, but neither will it draw the ire of one's spouse over perceived frivolous spending. :)

Remember Sizzlers? That's what got me into EV's originally back in the early 1970's!

In more Hot Wheel news - I found this from a DFW FB post - "The Blue S is in Case N, and P. In Case P is also a RED Model 3!"

Another reference to a red Model 3.

Now if you just know how to find the case number BEFORE the store dumps the box out in to the big bin.

Hot wheels brings back many good memories. I wonder if Aurora still makes those electric slot racing cars and whether they'll have a Model 3 too? Or perhaps Monogram or Revell plastic model kits? How about Matchbox or Corgi? The list goes on and on.....

There are still red Model 3's out there. Look for case Q. Looks like for 2020 MSM and maybe black are on there way. The MSM should be in case E. I just found these 3 today. The first red ones for me.

I've been on a hunt for the midnight silver ones...

Going through huge bins of cars at walmart / target has turning into a every couple of day thing now.

You'll need to grab the matchbox ones as well. Make a special place for the Semi.
