Has anyone seen a Model 3 anywhere in SoCal yet?
No sightings yet!
None behind the Orange Curtain.
Isn't SpaceX in Hawthorne? There should be some around there.
I suspect that only employees near the factory and Deer Creek engineering facility will get cars early since they will be near where engineering can watch them.
I'm in San Diego and have been keeping my eyes peeled, but unfortunately no sightings. I see plenty of S and X, and I saw a Bolt for the first time a couple days ago. I've even seen a couple i8s. I want to see a 3!
A midnight silver one belongs to an employee at the design studio in hawthorne. I saw it there while walking around SpaceX and the Hyperloop. :) It's been photographed there a few separate times, that I've seen on the interwebs.
I'm in SD and a neighbor with an S said they knew someone nearby that supposedly had a 3. Haven't seen it myself though I'm hoping to check it out.
Saw one on the day of the handover event in Sherman Oaks. Silver with Aero wheels. Beautiful.
I saw one few days before delivery event in San Diego drive by but it was the RC
Saw a black one today in Temecula on De Portola RD. It pulled out from a side street, right in front of me, so I only caught a glimpse of the side view, but spent a block or two behind it. Took me by surprise, too. It didn't seem to really stand out as I would have expected. Don't get me wrong, I drive a black vehicle, but my Tesla will definitely be a different color. It looked considerably smaller that the S, and perhaps a little taller than expected. I think I need to see many more, before finalaizing my opinion, tho....
I saw a big rig with a bunch of Tesla's on the 405 today, it had a white model 3 on it. Thought it was headed for the van nuys service center, but it blew by that exit and kept going south. Probably going to someone from SpaceX.
