Two unveils in the same day. You’re welcome.
After the unveiling of the Cadillac Elmiraj, photos have also surfaced of the Hot Wheels Tesla Model S, and like the Cadillac, we like what we see.
The Hot Wheels Tesla is at a major disadvantage, however, because it is going to be released about the same time as the Matchbox Tesla Model S. And to refresh your memory, here is what is looks like:
That is Matchbox at its best. Well-proportioned, highly detailed, and stock. You had to figure the Hot Wheels would be a little more sporty, and guess what?
It is! More flared wheel wells, a huge spoiler in the back, an aggressive stance, and some sporty PR5 wheels. No, it isn’t the stock Matchbox, but it shouldn’t be. The tampo work does leave a little to be desired, especially compared to the flawless detail on the Matchbox. But all in all, it’s fine, and it will work next to its orange-brand counterpart. It does look a little too much like the Hot Wheels Porsche Panamera though.
We have no problem with both Mattel brands releasing their versions of the same car, especially when they are different takes. And in the case of the Tesla Model S, both brands stayed true.
