5 Pictures Comparing Tesla Model 3 To Other Cars: Similarities and Differences

Sometimes you think you see a Tesla Model 3 from far away coming you way, be it in a video or in reality, but then you realize it's a Mazda, Posche or another vehicle. Has anyone else experienced this?

In the above main picture you see Tesla model 3 image vs Mazda 3. Some people note similarities there. I don't see much similarity, but apparently the designer of the Model S used to work at Mazda. According to Elektrek Franz Von Holzhausen, Tesla’s Chief Designer, is credited for the design of each wheel, but longtime Tesla designer David Imai and Bernard Lee are also credited for the first Model 3 wheel design – United States Patent USD789860.

No wonder this is what we ead about Von Holzhausen in Wikipedia. "After taking his role at Mazda on February 21, 2005, von Holzhausen led the design of the Mazda Kabura concept car that debuted at the 2006 North American International Auto Show. Prior to this, von Holzhausen designed the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky while Design Director at General Motors. He then went on to work for the car company Tesla where he is now. He is also known for designing the new versions of Tesla cars including the Model S and the Model X."

I personally think Tesla Model 3's front looks like either a Porsche Panamera or Corvette Z06. Here is our previous coverage on this comparison titled: First Production Tesla Model 3 Reminds of Corvette and Audi (Pictures).
