Model 3 sighting in SC?

Model 3 sighting in SC?

Hi, everyone: been lurking on the forums for a year now; figured it was time for my first post!

My wife and I are on the road heading through Columbia, SC, and she all of a sudden yelled, "Honey! I think that's a Model 3 over there!!!!" I didn't see it myself, but I showed her a picture of the prototype from the reveal (my phone wallpaper, no less) and she said that's exactly what she saw, except in white.

I thought it strange since most of the pics I've seen online are from CA, and nowhere near the East Coast. Anyone else seen a M3 this far from CA, or was it maybe a MS with the newer nose style?

There have been sightings in Ohio, but nothing as far South as SC. Could she have seen a model X? That seems to be the vehicle most people confuse with the 3.

It was very possibly a Model S with the newer nose cone. In white they look quite different than in other colors.
It's also possible she saw an X, as dsvick said.

But yes, it could be a Model 3.

(I just realized my reply isn't all all helpful....)

@PhillyGal Let me help you out here....

It most definitely was not a Model Y.
