For those that have not spotted it...

View attachment 10784

This is the gas-strut for helping lift the tailgate, which is huge.
You can see the split in the metal here


So I guess its a saloon like opening underneath the hatch like a bmw 3 series but as the glass isn't hinged it will leave a small opening
the gas or electric strut is for auto opening i guess nicely spotted

this is all moot any how as i think there is going to be 4 iterations of the model 3.
this one, a suv crossover like the x and a 2 door version and convertible

Hmm, huge tailgate needing a gas strut and that massive glass roof. Not really gone for the budget option there then have they!

Nope, nothing so far. Suspect a bit of server overload!

One thing I'd like a bit more info on - the rear looks high, so I wonder what rear visibility is like.
Does it matter though, you can just have a rear view camera. Loads of cars are quite hopeless now for rear view.

My money is on the glass and the lower section of bodywork going up together.

Edit: It would then look a little like this when open:
But the glass is contiguous from front to back, there is no metal for the hinge?

there is a join behind the front passengers head but i doubt the boot is hinged there. i stand by my best guess

Over all i love the interior but!!
Good to see they've gone with cup holder but how long will the flaps last
two huge storage bins
Door pockets
the tablet looks like it ipad pro sized, got a better screen.
how strong is that tablet mount?? be cool if it was removable

the front drivers seat which is in a driving position for a 6ft ish man looks quite far back from the pillar could make getting out difficult

no buttons on the steering wheel

I do hope we see a speedo cluster like the model s though I hate looking to the left all the time it just take's longer to find and read the display used to have a citroen picasso couldn't stand it.
