You knew it was coming ;)

I know we haven't yet seen a 3 with it yet and a lot of you are skeptical but.... You have to trust me on this one.

With the shareholder meeting tomorrow and possibly the reveal date set, lets see who's with me on this!

Will this baby get the beautiful, front end finishing, trademark moustache?!

I'm happy with the looks as it is. It just makes sense to keep the family resemblance.

Everyone makes it seem like I'm absolutely out to lunch on this.

The only good reason for not having it is saving money. It really wouldn't cost much with economies of scale and It looks fantastic on the S and X.

I understand why one might think it won't have one. I just don't understand how no one can see why it wouldn't (other than cost).

Because the release candidates are *exactly* what they're going to be producing. Nothing more is going to change.
Says who??

He is hiding something about the car and I'm sure it isn't just the moustache.

Honestly, How can anyone say that what we are seeing is exactly what we are going to get?

We haven't even seen the final car yet people.

I'm sure that what we are seeing is 99.5% what we are getting. Don't get me wrong. It's the 0.5% that has everyone excited.

Let's keep the hope alive man and not dash hopes before anyone even knows. ;)

the hood opens on the S/X at the front crease (mustache), while the Model ☰ opens well above the front crease. To add it, would require the whole front & hood be redesigned. (personally like it sans stache and could see the other models following it's styling)

and save your .5% for the HUD ;)

Best answer thus far.

Like the Model S I'm sure there will be a lot of aftermarket "nose jobs" for the Model 3 in attempt to improve upon the look, although the mustache wouldn't look right unless you extend the hood forward to become its top edge. @Steve C this is probably your best bet if you want the mustache. One can still hope but I highly doubt that Tesla will make such a deviation with the body panels anytime soon based on what we've seen so far.

I'm okay by the way the nose looks on the RCs, but from the pictures I'm not blown away by it either.

Hopefully it looks awesome in person akin to @TrevP's impression of the alpha design.

Having to produce the signature mustache requires it be produced. Which equals to money being spent. It's possible that the future model S will have a similar mustacheless front cover.

I will honestly be shocked if there's more than one vote for yes. :)
And yet here are 2 votes now.

Honestly, if there is a surprise coming, I feel strongly that it is inside the car or some incredible range on the battery given the secrecy with the inside and the screen in particular.

If it's a mustache, well now as much as I like it I'd be bummed because I love the design of the Model 3!

@SoFlaModel3 , I'm sure there are a few more unknowns other than the nose of her.

Although I think he is keeping the moustache a surprise, I would also be very disappointed if that was it as far as surprises go.

I'm really looking forward to a solid delivery date tomorrow. Fingers crossed
