    Since one of his hashtags is "#bestjobever", one would assume he is a Tesla employee. His mention of "our new baby" could mean Tesla, not necessarily our, being his personal vehicle and was just doing a test drive.

    I agree. It's his first drive in a Model 3, Tesla's new baby, and Tesla is getting ready to change the world. Nothing whatsoever about a personal car, probably a release candidate.

    I looked through his instagram and there are no indications of him working for tesla. In fact, there's a couple other tesla related post that point towards he's a tesla fan boy

    Well, I think it would be company policy to not post work related items on social media. If you were a Tesla employee, wouldn't you be a fan boy too? :D

    Check out this pic from his Instagram:

    This is pretty much what my desk looked like this morning. Gosh I think Pi day is my favorite day of the year: A pure mix of science and food AND I have the best cake I could wish for made by my lovely sister #whatelse #foodporn #chocolatecake #family #pearcake #piday #teslalife #nerd #bayarea #stephys #stephysMadeleines #pi - tyraelarchange

    You can see what looks like a car ECU on his desk (looks like that AP computer they say you can pull out and swap?) but just beyond it, it looks like he has the Model S/X screen powered up and operational on his desk. My guess is he's some UX/UI designer.

    Yep, everything points to him being a Tesla employee probably driving a RC.

    He could be one of the first 30 employees to receive a 3. But he probably shouldn't be posting about it before the official launch event this month.

    Clearly you don't work for the tech industry. :) Seriously, at the breakneck speeds Tesla is working at, I would be surprised they have time to be fan bois of their own products.
