An amateur video of what appears to be a Tesla Model X being test-driven has surfaced. Shot from a distance on a zoomed-in cell phone, the clip shows a camo-clad car going through some acceleration and cornering maneuvers. There’s also a still photo that seems to confirm that the vehicle is a Tesla.
According to the videographer, the site is the former Alameda Naval Air Station, an enormous expanse that Tesla has used for test driving in the past. Although no one saw the distinctive Falcon Wing doors being opened, our friends at AutoblogGreen are 99% sure that this is the electric crossover that’s coming to blow apart the luxury SUV market.
I believe this is the first photo of the #Tesla #model3. The only other photos are from #autoexpress.co.uk that Telsa claims are complete speculations. I saw this one being pulled into the trailer at #AlamedaNAS at an entrance to the closed airfield. The truck pulling it was a Tesla vehicle. After it was closed up I asked if I could be nosey hoping to find out what the car was but I got a quick “not on this one.” As if this is far different from normal for them. #telsamodel3 #Alameda #modelE #modelIII #California #ca #cars #car #automobile #teslamodelE #caranddriver #motortrend #Edmunds #teslamotorsclub #Fremontca
However, with Tesla you never know. Some commenters smell a juicier story. Is this the Model 3, or some new concept, or…?
