Perspective and Distortion 101:

Yellow zone in the centre: Largely undistorted.
Orange Zone around the centre: Begins to stretch outward.
Red Zone on the edge: Fox News levels of reality distortion

Attempt at a correction of scale.
(Note the X is parked too far back and the Y slightly too far forward.)

The camer lens is making the sides look larger than reality. No way the Model Y is just as wide as the CyberTruck.

Love the look of the "S". If I weren't waiting patiently on the CT, pretty sure I would have sprung for the "S". May yet.
I'm going in the opposite direction. I'm 6'4" and getting in/out of the S is more challenging than any other vehicle in their lineup. We also have a Y, which is a breeze to enter/exit and I know the CT will be even easier (can't wait!). I do dearly love my S though, don't get me wrong!

I’m in the exact same boat. Depending on how the new M3 looks, I may get a M3P to wait for the CT…
My wife had a 3 and now has the S. I drive it as often as possible, but I’m in a 🌮 until my Cybertruck comes. No complaints on the S at all 🤠

It has to be wider… at 6’3, I have trouble getting into the S and the 3… and when I drive the Y, you can’t put anyone my height directly behind me In comfort. Then when you have 5 adults in the Y, those in the back seat look so miserable… not much room 😔.

I hope this is remedied with the CT, or I’ll be sad… but only for those who have to suffer as I smile from ear to ear driving this tremendous apparatus on many adventures!!! 😄😆😄

Is this photo for a revised home page? Does this mean Elon is going to update the CT web page with real information? Like, prices, ranges, dimensions, stock features, options, etc.?

That’s a really useless picture. Fisheye lens. The S is wide but it looks as if someone stepped on it.

From left to right: S, 3, CT, Y, X. Is this correct?

I think you are correct. Fisheye, which means only the CT is not distorted. All the cars are on a straight line: the joint in the concrete. But, the lens distorts and makes the X appear to be really out in front. Wish I had been there with my Canon EOS-R.

I feel like the model Y looks huge in that picture. 🤷‍♂️
That’s what you get when you use a wide-angle lens. It distorts things on the edges. Same thing that happens on pictures of houses for sale on Realtor.com.
