probably Tile-Horned Prionus

Reaallly big bug in driveway!
Hi Bugman!
We found this guy parked in our driveway tonight. Not sure, but think it may be some kind of beetle. Can you help us identify? It’s actually quite attractive. Note the classic lines, body contours and attention to detail. The serrated curb feelers for parallel parking are a nice touch.

This is one of the Root Borers in the genus Prionus, probably the Tile-Horned Prionus, Prionus imbricornis. Global coordinates would have helped.
