Everything that's going on at Elon Musk's most beloved company – Tesla – is under intense scrutiny from the public and critics alike (plus not to mention the investors). As such, anything that moves there is always under the microscope – even if it's only a virtual one.
Like many other automakers involved in the fresh EV game, Tesla is experiencing a market cooldown, and the slowdown in demand has affected the world's best-selling zero-emissions car. If you don't care about Toyota's claim that the Corolla is still on top of the world when bundling the passenger car with the Corolla Cross CUV, the Tesla Model Y is even considered the world's best-selling vehicle – so it's only natural that everyone wants to do something with or about it.

That includes the rumor mill along with the imaginative realm of digital car content creators. Obviously, after the company introduced the refreshed Tesla Model 3 in all territories, including at home in America, the reports were all over the place about the popular Model Y coming out next with a slew of updates.

Tesla, of course, has already disputed that, and now the rumor mill is on the fence if the US company will update it to the same threshold as Model 3 or simply skip the mid-cycle facelift routine and bring out a second-generation crossover with a new platform altogether. Naturally, the parallel universes of vehicular CGI are facing the same dilemma – refreshed or all-new Tesla Model Y.

Some pixel masters have obviously gone the safer and easier Tesla Model 3 'Highland' route and called the Tesla Model Y refresh 'Juniper.' It's not hard to imagine that the US company could do the same to make the best-selling Model Y crossover even more popular than before. Others, though, went down the more difficult path of predicting a complete revamp of the mid-size CUV.

For example, the virtual automotive artist behind the Evren Ozgun Spy Sketch channel on YouTube has a 'slightly' different interpretation of the 2025 Tesla Model Y – his unofficial renderings take many DNA cues from other models to portray a vastly different zero-emissions best-seller.

More precisely, while this artist's hypothetical Tesla Model Y mid-size EV crossover SUV keeps the profile mostly intact to ease the transition to a second iteration and retain the same amount of interior space, it also has a completely new front fascia and rear-end design. At the front, there's a heavily-lit headlight assembly with the same crease as seen on an Aston Martin DB12, for example (the radiator grille).

It also comes with an exposed carbon fiber front bumper, perhaps to lower the unsprung mass. The wheel arches are more pronounced than on a regular Model Y, and it also features new wheels that look much larger. It also houses drilled brake rotors. Meanwhile, a new ducktail spoiler is at the back, like on Porsches, along with elongated LED taillights. So, what do you think?
