They say you shouldn't live your life waiting for the things that are about to happen, but focus on the present instead. Yet everything around seems to make obeying this principle very difficult. You've got your paycheck, your favorite TV series, your next date, or your long-planned trip to Hawaii to look forward to, and nothing that's happening at this moment can even begin to compare with these things.
You can now write Tesla a letter and thank them for this wonderful and considerate gesture they made by adding the Model 3 to the list of things worth waiting for. And it's not like we're talking a short period of time here: 18 months (at best) is a long time to waste thinking about the moment you'll get your keys.

Almost one month has passed since the launch, and after the initial series of photos, info, and ride-along videos, not much else has transpired about the car. The interior is still a mystery and Tesla says it will suffer significant changes compared to what we've seen on the prototype, which is good news considering that dashboard was the main talking point, and not in a good way. That and the trunk's opening, which, unlike the dashboard, will sadly remain unchanged.

The exterior, on the other hand, holds no more secrets. It may suffer some changes as well, but expect them to be nothing more than minor cosmetic adjustments with the overall shape remaining the same. And after you get to grips with the lack of a radiator grille (or something resembling it) and the beak-like shape of the front end, the Model 3 presents itself as a very elegant-looking car. The one-piece glass roof is great and should offer quite an interesting experience for those inside.

Motor Trend managed to get the chance to do a live Facebook session at Tesla's Gigafactory, and they used it to circle around a Model 3 on display there while also talking about the vehicle and answering questions that were being posted online. The interior was out of reach, so it's all about the exterior design and the car's specs.
