    Super excited I got to witness and record a Model 3 up close! In a thunderstorm no less... Thought you guys might want to see this. I saw it from the front and up close in person the new front end design looks great IMO. Let me know if you have any questions, there was definitely a puck shaped sensor on back trunk lid and another antenna hanging below the back bumper with some wiring. Chase car was a model S with a lot of pelican cases and gear in back of the model S. Also when my friend and I arrived to the SC which is at the Cincinnati Tesla store, there was an enclosed trailer leaving the lot like he had just dropped them off to charge and then depart on a long term test drive perhaps...

    Wayyy outside of California. That's why I was so excited haha. The best kind of surprise for an early east coast reservation holder

    Wow thank you for sharing!

    The car in this video makes me change my mind a little about the back. This one for some reason looks way better than the release candidates in the other spy shots.

    Wow!!! Late night is right! It's like 1 a.m. Major storms ripping through...they must have thought under the cover of darkness no one would be there.....in Cincinnati no less!!!! They better hope these storms don't start throwing hail. Unreal....so jealous. Nice we are seeing sightings this Far East....that's surprising this early.....For sure EVERYONE should be alert with cams at the ready!
    Wish you'd have been able to get that all elusive Front end shot!

    Thanks for Sharing!

    The original prototypes visited the Gigafactory (Nevada) on occasion. But, yes, first time spotted in the wild outside California AFAIK.

    @DrivingTheFuture - Great catch, congrats! What it is impression of size of the car in real life? It looks quite massive and mascular on the video! Like it! Any impression of exterior built quality? Know it was a pissing rain, but still :)..

    They need to get some real miles on these pre-production cars, we will se more and more of them out everyday, exciting!

    Me too I was just standing there in front if it for first few seconds too stunned to do anything... Then I snapped out of it and pulled out my phone but I was too proud to go full fanboy and start from the front lol

    Perhaps they are working on some promotional material for the final reveal!

    I'm glad I just recently upgraded to the Samsung S8 ... I'm pretty pleased with the video quality considering it was in a storm at night!

    The back looks great IMO. The wheels looks slick also, lightweight.

    Would live to see a front view of the white 3.
    I wonder where they were heading?

    After they left I kicked myself for not following them for a while... But it was poor conditions for highway driving much less filming while doing so
