The Tesla Model 3 should start deliveries some time in the next mid term election cycle, but at least one prototype is out on the road, doing testing and looking good.

Tipster Jeff Klakring spotted the car not far from Tesla’s Silicon Valley home base, and was quick with the camera:

I was driving on the 280 heading toward Palo Alto when three teslas merged onto the highway. The middle one was the black Model 3. Followed it for a minute before I had to exit.

I stood in line to order a 3 so I kinda freaked out when I saw it.

It will be a bit of a wait, that’s for sure. Tesla’s first affordable car might not finish its deliveries until 202o, and Tesla’s not even having a good time producing low-volume cars now in 2016. How well they’ll fare with a mass-market vehicle is yet to be seen.

At least this prototype looks choice.
