I'm seeing Nissan GT-R headlights and Chrysler Crossfire side air vents.

Hypothetically speaking the next SLK is most likely going to draw its design from here.

Also my only problem with this is... How do you open this (the doors) in your bog standard garage.

Unless your garage has 6' ceilings you should be fine. As for horizontal space, they use less than traditional doors. They should only need about 8" of clearance on the side.

I think it is pretty cool looking from the front. I don't like the back view.

I'd take this one over the modern interpretation. The black one looks stunning.

Agreed...very nice looking in black! I don't understand the green tint on the windows, though.

I don't like the newest sketches. The exterior looks like your typical "concept" vehicle sketches, lots of silly lines that would never make it to production. I agree with another poster that it looks too much like a Nissan, although I do like the front grille.

The interior photos look fugly. Like a cheap Mustang. And it looks cramped.

I'm sure the Gullwing that actually does get released will make us all envious of the lucky few who to get to order them.

That's okay... I'm going to buy a Tesla Model S when it is released, which should be a bit sooner than the Gullwing, considering there is already a built prototype making the car-show rounds. I've already put down a deposit so no Gullwing for me!

Come on... multi year old sketches are meaningless.

Interior looks fine

Robert built my engine so the initial engines should be phenomenal.

Don't they first need to build the factory to actually make the Model S? Last time I was in Tesla's showroom they said they were waiting to see if they will get any of that stimulus money for CA so they could build said factory. I hope they do, the Model S is a sweet looking car.
