    So my father who lives in St. Louis, Missouri often travels around the state on business. He was in Columbia, MO today at the Holiday Inn which has a Tesla Supercharger in the parking lot when he noticed a "smaller Model S" charging from a supercharger. Now my dad, who HAS driven a model S before, knows the car fairly well and is always on the lookout for Tesla's cause he knows how much I love em. He told me that it was a "dark almost gunmetal grey", "flat color" and it had black rims. I immediately thought that it was the Model 3 prototype that we've seen before. I asked him if he was able to take a picture of it and he said that he didn't get a chance and that when he went back it was already gone. I've shown him pictures of the model 3 prototype and he really thinks that was the car he saw. I haven't seen any reports of that car being out of California before, but maybe they are making a cross country road trip with it. Has anybody seen reports or seen the car anywhere in the midwest recently?

        From the side and a distance the X has a similar profile to the 3.
