Any guesses?

It’s George Conway’s (in theory) so it could be nearly anything. Not much here to go on other than the color and sliver of taillight lens, but both are fairly distinctive.

I have a theory from the tail light, but am struggling with the lower cutline.

Yeah, same. I thought I had a theory but looking at pics I think I'm wrong.

I wanted to say panamera, but it doesn't quite look right.

I think it's a Model 3.

I don’t think it’s a 3; there’s no angle I think that gets you that straight across taillight strip.
