    My friend was in Ohio out in the middle of no where and he came across a Tesla center. And it seems that they had a the new Model 3 there for testing.

    Yup, that's an X, if I've ever seen one.

    After the first X siting at the airport, there was a massive debate over whether it was in fact the 3.

    They look nothing alike in my opinion... the 3 has no Zorro 'stache

    I do not see a Model 3 in that photo.

    Go look at the Model 3 webpage at tesla.com to get a clear idea of what it looks like.

    I feel better now. I thought this was a "where's Waldo" moment and I just wasn't finding it. X marks the spot for sure!

    Tesla Model X for sure due to the doors and its handles.

    You aren't alone, I had the screen up to my face examining pixels just in case there was a Model 3 somewhere in the distance or in a reflection off another car.

    I see 2 X's 3 S's and a Lexus...

    You all sure about that? The blue one all the way to the left by the building sure does look like a model 3 to me.

    1) As everybody has already started: that's a Model X

    2) That's the Cincinnati Tesla Store, not exactly in the "middle of nowhere".

    3) I was just there yesterday. No Model 3.

    Don't worry George. This is how this forum is. I know you are new....but you have to have thick skin in here.

    I don't think Tesla will have any Model 3s "out in the wild" outside of California (or maybe Nevada, due to Gigafactory) for some time to come.

    I thought maybe they meant the Model Y, and at first I wasn't sure if that was an X or a nearly identical but slightly smaller Y.

    But since I like Ohio, and Cincinnati, and DAYTON (screw Columbus, Cleveland is whatever) I'm going to agree that it's definitely the 3.

    ...yet.

    Haha compared to what? My first forum was based on off-roading... if you need thick skin here, you'd need body armor over there.
