New photos show us what the final Model 3 design will probably look like

New photos show us what the final Model 3 design will probably look like

Tesla’s final Model 3 unveiling is set to take place next month, but an enterprising Redditor happened to spot a Model 3 charging at a Supercharger station in California and managed to take the most detailed and instructive photos we’ve seen yet. Whereas most of the Model 3 photos we’ve seen in recent weeks have been taken of a Model 3 in motion, the most recent crop of Model 3 photos were carefully taken while the car was sitting still. What’s more, the Tesla employee driving the car reportedly told the Redditor that the Model 3 design is “pretty much” final at this point. While this is admittedly a second-hand blurb, it stands to reason that this is indeed accurate given that July is right around the corner.

So without further ado, featured below are a series of photos which provide us with our crispest look yet at what the shipping version of the Model 3 is actually going to look like.

The front-on view is essentially similar to what we’ve seen from the beginning, with the Model 3 below in the center and flanked by two Model S vehicles.

And now a side view for good measure.

A shot of the Model 3 from the rear.

A close-up shot of the interior gives us our first solid look at what the final steering wheel design may look like. Alas, this is a far cry from the spaceship style design Elon Musk promised on Twitter many months back.

Moving along, this shot of the interior showcases an elegant wood trim, in line with other Model 3 spy shots we’ve seen over the past few weeks. Note that the display on the Model 3 is 15-inches and a tad smaller than the display that comes standard on both the Model S and the Model X.

Not much too see here, just a Model 3 getting some juice.

And last but not least, pictured below is a Model 3 with a decidedly unorthodox rims.

Pictures aside, we also have a pretty firm grasp on what type of specs the Model 3 will bring to the table. According to an official product sheet from Tesla that was released not too long ago, the entry level Model 3 will have a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds and a minimum range of 215 miles on a single charge.

White House concedes Russia meddled in campaign, but denies it changed the result

White House concedes Russia meddled in campaign, but denies it changed the resultThe White House Thursday addressed the joint intelligence report that found Russia had attempted to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, more than five months after the report’s conclusions were made public. First, on Twitter, President Trump dismissed the concerns about Russia as a “big Dem HOAX” and suggested that his predecessor, President Barack Obama, did little to confront the problem. White House aides then clarified Trump’s remarks and said he believes there was Russian meddling but is certain it did not affect the outcome of the race.

China’s border with North Korea

China’s border with North KoreaChina has long been North Korea’s main ally and trading partner, but relations are increasingly strained by continued missile testing and provocations by the regime of Kim Jong Un. At least three-quarters of trade between the two nations flows through points along its 880-mile-long shared border, a divide that reveals stark contrasts in development.

Four GOP senators: We won’t vote for new health care bill

Four GOP senators: We won’t vote for new health care billIn a potentially game-changing move, four conservative senators quickly announced Thursday afternoon that they oppose the health care bill rolled out by Republican Senate leadership earlier in the day. Ted Cruz, R-Texas and Ron Johnson, R-Wis. said in a statement that the proposal did not go far enough to overhaul the current system. “There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system, but it does not appear that this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to the Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their health care costs,” the group said in the release.

Think of all the amazing things you can do with Philips’ Alexa-enabled Hue Lightstrips

Think of all the amazing things you can do with Philips’ Alexa-enabled Hue Lightstrips

Philips Hue is obviously the premiere name in smart lighting solutions. Philips was one of the earliest companies to dive head first into the connected lighting market, and it remains one of the top names to this day. Everyone knows about Philips’ standard Hue bulbs, but the company makes a bunch of different products. One thing you definitely need to check out if you haven’t already is the 2nd-Generation Philips 800276 Hue Lightstrip Plus, which is discounted right now on Amazon. In terms of smarts, the Lightstrip is controlled in exactly the same way as Philips’ other bulbs. It’s a strip of LEDs though, so you can do all sorts of creative things with it.

Here are some key details from the product page:

  • Works with Amazon Alexa to support dimming, shades of white, and color settings through voice control (hub required, Alexa device and Philips hub sold separately)
  • Enjoy light effects synced to our music and extend you TV experience to the whole room, or lift your gaming experience to the next level
  • Place under furniture or kitchen cabinets, into coves or highlight architectural features with indirect light

If you’re looking for a less expensive option and you don’t need Alexa, check out the Alanda 16.4 ft LED Rope Light. In fact, you can couple it with an Alexa-enabled smart plug and still save money, though you won’t get the same range of functionality and compatibility as you would with the Hue Lightstrip.
