    Might have been posted somewhere. I took a quick look and didn’t see anything, but here it is.

    Appears to be the truck with a model X tagging it. Doesn’t even look real.

    Check out the size of the truck compared to that Civic! (I think it's a Civic?)

    It made the Model X look like a Model 3

    The resolution isn't great since I think it's been reposted a couple times and I couldn't find the original. Tesla should have included a high res version in their press pack. It's literally an origami truck.... :)

    Likely real. Shadows and reflections are correct and the model X tailing it indicates it’s out on a test drive

    A10 warthog is ugly and has saved a lot of lives. The A10 and cybertruck are perfect examples of "form follows function".

    I want one also but really do not need a truck. I guess I need some new hobbies or a vacation ranch.

    Definitely real. In Hawthorne, CA apparently. Seems odd that they would be driving the prototype around though...

    Why weird? Gets more and more people talking about it. And they need to transport it. Why not drive it and get people to see it and up the exposure.

    Yeah, not weird at all. Now that it's 'out there' I suspect we'll be seeing one (or several) prototypes driving around the country and stopping at superchargers.

    Other companies need to hire agencies and come up with fancy ideas and on location shoot to market their cars

    Tesla is like, let’s just take it for a quick spin. Done

    Does this imply that the prototype is street legal?
