I'm going to start a company making NASCAR style stickers that look like a grill and selling them to Model 3 owners. Almost a guaranteed sale to every one.


Yeah, it's rather bizarre-looking. I've read that Tesla has yet to officially reveal a production model but this prototype is probably a good indicator. It will likely have a nose design like the newer Model S and Model X which I actually find quite nice.

I still have a lot of catch-up reading to do in this thread, but had to strongly agree to this statement.

It actually does do exactly this. When test driving the autopilot v1 car, after about 5 minutes, the car asked me to put my hands on the steering wheel. I did, and then asked the sales person what would the car have done if I didn't comply? He told me how the car does this 3 times, shakes the steering wheel and seat and then determines you've fallen asleep and pulls over to the side and puts the hazards on. So the car will not only disengage self-driving, it will stop driving completely.
