The black matte Tesla Model 3 prototype shown at the Tesla Model 3 unveiling event in California was a big hit. Now, it seems that Model 3 mule or another one sporting black matte has been spotted on a California highway. Check out the video below, which Drew Dmz Williams kindly shared in our Tesla Obsessed Facebook group.

Here are a few pics Kyle Field took of the black matte Model 3 at the unveiling event when he and I were hanging out on the test track for ~2 hours:

While we’re having some fun, this joke has been circling the internet universe and requires a share:

  • I still get confused about this car. My eyes saw a matte gray at the event. The event pictures above make it hard to confirm. Yet this one is for sure matte black, no two ways about it.

    • Hmm, yeah, you are right. I mean, it seems your eyes do not deceive you.

  • From a design perspective, the M3 has a really well resolved rear end. The front is not too bad, that the rear is a star.

    • The front has a big flat area framed by a shape in the sheet metal that is similar the shape you get on the front of ICE cars that frames the grille. It looks odd. The rest looks good though.
