Elon Musk has arrived at the Texas State Capitol with a Tesla Model X to show off.

Musk, along with 100-plus Tesla owners, are in Texas at the State Capitol  to argue against the state's direct-sales ban, petitioning the state to allow the electric car maker to set up company run boutique stores.

The surprise here is that the Model X is on hand.  The Model X (even in prototype form as seen here) is a rare sight even at auto shows, so catching a glimpse of it in Austin is worth the drive if you're anywhere nearby.
