What @jmtibs didn't know is that his lens actually caught what's believed to be the only fully operational Model X in existence.

This Model X sighting occurred in Culver City, California, which is less than 10 miles from Tesla's design center in Hawthorne.

The Model X seen here was believed to have just been at the Hawthorne design studios.

Our guess is that perhaps this Model X is getting ready for the trip to Detroit for the 2014 NAIAS.

Of note, the Model X has side mirrors rather than cameras.  This is to comply with federal regulations in the US.  This change was made awhile back, though some are still unaware of the alteration.

The Tesla Model X is expected to launch in the US in late 2014 as a Model Year 2015 offering.
