When the newest EV was announced this year, many started to take notice of the Tesla Model 3 design. While some car enthusiasts have already test driven Tesla’s latest offering, others will just have to do with online reviews.
Fortunately, an artist recently rendered the first 3D model of the Model 3. Veteran Blender 3D artist Mike Pan decided to take some existing photos and videos and tried his best to do an interactive render of the new car.
“The model is recreated entirely from the few number of photos and launch video,” Pan said in an Electrek report. “This was done before the MotorTrend exclusive, so there are some inaccuracies. Took me about 2 weeks.”

Just recently, CEO Elon Musk had to announce that they will “most likely miss” the first Model 3 production deadline. Reports confirmed that the car manufacturing giant has already received 400,000 pre-orders for the newest release, but the car manufacturing company will reportedly only produce less than 90,000 units this year.
CNET reported that the production deadline for Tesla Model 3 was originally set for July 1, 2017.
Apart from the production delays, Tesla Motors also suffered a drop in their stocks. Allegedly, this has something to do with the worries and apprehensions “strongly felt by the company investors,” Jobs & Hire reported.
“Despite Tesla’s narrower than expected loss, the company is down $75 million on the quarter and delivering 500,000 units by 2018 may prove to be a tough task,” says Mark Williams, an analyst with Kelley Blue Book.
“Tesla collected an estimated $400 million from refundable deposits on the Model 3, but may need to seek out more after announcing a 50 percent increase in capital expenditures,” he continued. “The pressure from building a Gigafactory (battery plant), delivering units ahead of schedule, and replacing valuable resources is going to pose some interesting challenges for the Tesla brand.”
