      Model S is strongly styled enough to forgo it and still look good, but I like it for family branding related vehicles…

        Tesla has said they will not be like Audi, where all the cars need to have the same front end, to appear to be in the same family.

        1. Anon says:

          I know they’ve _said_ that, but Model X suuuuuure looks a lot like S– including the nosecone. *shrugs*

    2. EV says:

      Absolutely not.

    3. EV says:

      This Model S had a nose job and it did not turn out good at all. Its missing its face.

      Will never understand anyone that says the nosecone is ugly. It is not ugly in any way whatsoever. It is the face of the car.

        What? A face can’t be ugly?

        1. Anon says:

          Not when it costs $60k and up…

    Can’t wait to see what drivetrain mods are done.. I assume improved cooling would be a biggie..
