The date of the video being March 17th 2017, i'm wondering where and when this (albeit clay model) was on display?!

its at the Gigafactory (from being on display last summer).
Here's the silver alpha sitting at about the same place
Yes, and this is again a case of a date on a YouTube video being misleading as this was originally published close to 6 months ago, as is if I remember correctly... :)

If it is the same clay Model, the one with no bottom, I remember that.
If it's the case my apologies and you can remove the post.
I was so impressed with the finish.... :)

Isn't this the clay model? I'm guessing that's why the panel gaps are tight.
It is a model, not a real car. It is made by attaching actual body panels to a wood frame. NO CLAY was used.

It's lack of panel gaps is not relevant since it is not a real car.

What would cause the drooping side mirrors when it was out in the sun during the investor event?

I asked and that static display was fibreglass panels on a steel structure. Everything is a mockup on that one.

The silver alpha car was real but it also had fibreglass body panels.
