I saw it...really I did!
They did a little body work since the first reveal but I think it's pretty sexy!

Sorry, I couldn't help it. With everyone getting so excited about seeing a Model 3 in the wild people are going to be mis-identifying cars left and right. Patience folks. All will be revealed in time.

C'mon Dan, you know it's not a Model 3 because a real Model 3 doesn't have a hood ornament. Close though.

What exactly is that vehicle? It's actually pretty cool! Old and new all in one.

THAT is what in my mind, the most beautiful automotive body ever designed. It is a 1939 Duesenberg Coupe Simone Midnight Ghost. Google it...lots of images to wonder at. These Dueseys and the Cord Coupes of the time absolutely do it for me.

Hey guys, let's not have too much fun ;) We already have a thread for real sightings. I'll have to change the thread title so newcomers are not confused

Thanks

My dad has restored many 1900-1940 vehicles (about 1 every year or two since the mid 80s) and is really involved in the antique car community. I can tell you from being around that group of people, the owners who have Duesenbergs are looked at with a lot of respect. There are not very many and they are absolutely beautiful (the coats, the owners not so much)

Of course it needs a HUD though.

Actually 'Rumor Mill' probably also a better place to leave thread, though, good job, @Dan Detweiler , you surely got some traction on this one!! ;)
