After years of successfully keeping the Model 3 under wraps, it seems that the secret is out and Tesla is taking Model 3 to the streets. Numerous reports of the Model 3 are hitting social media networks this morning, showing the car roaming public streets in daylight, flaunting its newfound celebrity status.
A silver Tesla Model 3 is pictured following a Tesla Model S that has been fitted with a rear hatch–mounted camera system zooming down a main street in Marina del Rey, California, which is a beach town just north of where the car was officially unveiled on Thursday. A reddit thread shared the news with one enterprising redditor digging in a bit to bring out the creepier side of the internet when he posted the exact address where the Model 3 was spotted.

I’m sure the energy of the place has shifted from a nervous, tense energy to a more jovial “we did it!” feeling, and the fact that they are touting it around town on the main street of a big city right around evening hours speaks to that.
