Tesla Model 3 interior as seen at the reveal event – notice centre screen & absence of any instruments in front of the driver. Notice too, the zero in the top left of the centre screen, which is a speed display.
Since the Tesla Model 3 reveal, there has been speculation about the 15" landscape centre screen & the possibility of other instruments in the production vehicle. One popular suggestion has been a head up display (HUD). With the benefit of hindsight, the engineer driving the prototype in my post about the Model 3 reveal was committed to the advantages of the centre screen & eliminating instruments in front of the driver.1
Recently, Elon Musk placed it beyond doubt in a Twitter exchange:

“You won’t care”? – Elon Musk makes it clear that it doesn’t mean a HUD, but it does imply something in the user interface that will overcome objections to the absence of a speed display in front of the driver.
If, as the owner of a production Model 3, you do care, there are many existing add-on HUDs, including:
