According to Diarmuid O'Connell, Tesla VP of business development, pre-orders for the Tesla Model 3 are approaching 400,000 and "It delivers a message to the industry that there's incredible demand for great electric vehicles out there," O'Connell said at a conference on Monday.  The company had announced $14 billion in Model 3 orders when they hit 325,000 and at $1000 deposit per it would look like the company has $400,000,000 in cash to use to help produce these nearly 400,000 Model 3s. 

In other news there's been a lot of talk about the grill-less front end of the Model 3 and if the company will tweak it for the final design.  This past week the company updated the Model S to include a new Tesla emblem adorned front end that matches the Model X front.  We wouldn't be surprised if this same narrow grill with large Tesla emblem should appear in the final version of the Model 3 as well.  This might also entail modifying the hood a bit so that it extends straight down to the edge instead of the porsche-like rounded front that leaves a lip of hood before the end.  Here's a picture of the new Model S design as well as the current Model 3 front.  What do you think?  Would the Model 3 look better with a similar grill and hood to the new Model S?
