I spotted my first Model X yesterday. I was disappointed.

The overall shape had me suspicious, but I was withholding judgement until I saw one in person. They’re pretty awkward looking IMO. Excellent photography disguises the proportions in press photos - IRL they look like a model S someone jammed a straw into and puffed up until it was ready to burst.

I think it looks like a Honda Crosstour with a Tesla badge. Oh dear.

But hey - what do I know? I like things like this:


Now that’s my kind of ugly.
