Wondering if anyone has a line on when we'll see some Model 3's in person here in the Pac NW?

I'd love to test drive prior to placing the order. But, I'm realistic and know that if I want to keep my place in line, I may have to order first.

I'd just love to see the colors in person. Digital photos with varying degrees of lighting & color correction can sometimes embellish or deaden the pop of a color.

Anyone have a friend @ tesla Portland?? :)

the word earlier this year was test drive cars would be coming around in the fall - probably October and likely similar to what they did with the Model X of having them 'on tour' hitting different areas for special events before test drive/demo cars are at stores.

For anyone interested in seeing the Model 3, Black Current will be visiting the Washington Superchargers in Aberdeen and Centralia to celebrate the new year on Jan. 1. We should be able to make it to Aberdeen by noon, and then to Centralia by about 2:30 p.m., and we expect to spend about an hour at each location. Please stop by to say hello.

Would love to visit Vancouver SC if it is open by Monday. But it probably will be dark by the time we could arrive. Might have to do a separate trip for better viewing opportunity.

@MelindaV , a little trip 90 miles North in the Pontiac sounds like a great plan on Monday... Happy New Year!! :D

Agreed! If I were still visiting my folks in PDX on Jan 1st, I would have made that trip in a heartbeat.

(Instead, I guess I'll have to settle for waiting until Jan *2nd* for the You You circus to arrive here in Boston...)

Just wanted to share another opportunity to check out the Model 3. We will be visiting the Olympic Peninsula on Sunday, Jan. 14. Stopping at 12:30 in Poulsbo at Valholl Brewing, and then hope to make it to the Sequim Supercharger around 3 pm.

Any chance you'll be supercharging in Monroe or Lynnwood this month? A meet-up would be great. :)

Next road trip for Black Current is close to home. We will be in Burien on Sunday, Jan. 21, hanging out at the park-and-ride on 4th SW between noon and 2 p.m. Looks like a rainy day, but we will be under cover in the garage on the ground floor by the charging stations. Come say hello!
