    I saw this in the window of a Model 3 that just arrived in MN. Does anyone know what "Factory Gated" means? It makes me think that it would be something that they wouldn't want leaving the factory.

    Or maybe the car was in a gated place?

    All the 3s are behind gate in Rocklin. I saw the same thing there a few weeks ago, only in 1 car, figured it was some kind of factory hold. Still not sure, but a week later it was gone (could have been hiding in the SC, but gated lot went from 15+ to zero 3’s recently, so maybe they were all delivered).
