    Is it too soon to start this thread?
    Now that there are six of them out there!
    Let's see if we can get photos of them being sighted randomly.

    Haha, the video of from the same twitter as that picture with Mr. Jurvetson driving in the rain is great. "I want my rain to go up and over" Lol. Could be a line from a certain TV show.

    Actually I think Elon is looking for the two fellas to help him get free of the falcon wing door that has him pinned against the other car.
    Just kidding of course:smile:
    It is interesting to see the X with just one wing up. Usually every photo shows both wings raised.

    Um..I'll vote this best pic in the thread.


    *** was voted best pic in the Model X Mule sightings thread. Moved here, it's out of context. :smile:

    Nice pic...but technically, is his delivered Founders model a mule? Might want to put it in this thread as well: Random Model X sightings

    No, I think the Founders' vehicles are considered real production vehicles, not "mules".

    Yep. That was a rhetorical question, asking why the image was posted in the wrong thread. The moderator had since moved all of those messages from the X mules thread to this thread, as I suggested.

    Looks like Elon is demonstrating to the guys how the Falcon Wing door will recognize an obstruction and stop opening. Probably wanted to demo how safe the doors are.

    Looks really nice! :love: I have not been so sure about the white in general, but I take that back now.
