The Model 3 won't be delivered until late 2017 at the earliest, but a select few people got to take a ride in the new electric vehicle Thursday night.
In groups of three, the auto press and special guests were chauffeured along a half-mile track.
By general agreement, the car is sleek, silent and smart-looking. A comfortable five-seater, it was roomy enough to fit a 6'3" driver and leave leg room for the 6' passenger behind him. The use of a single piece of glass to cover the rear seating area increased the roomy feeling.
