This is the current "make a reservation" model 3 page:
https://www.tesla.com/model3

I was trying to see if a configurator is available yet, so I just modified the Model S configuration page by changing the S to a 3. I'm not sure what's going on here. It looks like the either the mobile version of the above page, or just a messed-up version:
https://www.tesla.com/model3/design

That's all I got right now. I think the last time I tried this, it had redirected to https://www.tesla.com/model3. So something changed.

This is already up (at least) since the release of the new model s build page but I'm also looking over the sourcecode of teslas pages around once a week and wasn't able to detect anything special the last few weeks (but maybe I'm not good in code review ;) ).

Last week when I tried it redirected me to Model S configurator. Now it redirected back to the Tesla homepage ...

So you are getting redirected to the Tesla main page or the broken model 3 page? Because the redirection to the main page would be new afaik.

Actually to clarify...

On my iPhone I am redirected back to the homepage.

On my MacBook I am redirected to the configurator landing page... pick Model S or X.

Wow, I would never have thought of that! :)
Ah I see. Are you sure you picked the url posted above
https://www.tesla.com/model3/design and not https://www.tesla.com/build/model3 because the first URL directs you to the broken page while the second url brings you to the main configurator page.
You guys are sooooo smart... ;):cool:

Periodically I go through their source code, and poke at their data model. There are changes periodically to their source, but nothing of interest lately...
