This week we bring you our pressing topic of the moment straight from our reader-driven discussion boards! Some Core77 readers got excited about the announcement of Tesla's new Model 3 recently being revealed and wanted to see what our community of auto-heads had to say about it. Coffee87 asks:

The responses, as always, have been mixed in the car world. Some people seem to be weirded out by the grill-less facade. "I don't want a fake grill in front, but I would like... something... there," says Scott Bennett, "the surfacing suggests a grill, which makes it looks like it's missing. And it's going to look pants with a front license plate." (Editors Note: in case you weren't aware, "pants" is essentially hilarious British slang for "terrible")
Coffee87 retorts, saying, "I absolutely love the front end design with the sports car style nose, a hint for but lack of a grill and the headlights. I think that by leaving design cues for where a grill should be but not actually including it works great. It creates this intrigue and statement 'I`m electric'."
What do you think? Is this new model sleek or a total blunder—and why? Share your thoughts with us in the comment feed below!
