Are you wondering why you haven't seen all those Tesla Inc. (TSLA) Model 3s that were supposed to take over every road from L.A. to Boston? So are we.
After all, Tesla CEO Elon Musk promised 1,500 Model 3s delivered in September, while only 220 made it to their new owners in the whole third quarter. In September, roughly 1,330 Model 3 vehicle identification numbers were filed with the NHTSA - but by the end of last month, only a few VINs in the 500 range had been spotted in the wild.
So where are they? It looks like some of the Model 3s could be hiding out in this garage, thanks to a tip from a reader.
In a post to photo sharing site Imgur, a user posted what appears to be a series of pictures showing a large number of Model 3 units in a garage in Playa Vista, California, near Los Angeles International Airport.
The photos show Model 3 units with VINs as high as 1096.
It's unclear why exactly Tesla could be storing the Model 3 units in the garage. The company has yet to respond to TheStreet's request for comment or confirmation.
It's worth noting that the Playa Vista garage where the models are being stored is about a 16-minute or 10-mile drive from Tesla's Hawthorne, California, design studio. It's at that studio that Tesla is expected to unveil its monster Tesla Truck Thursday evening.
Tesla stock traded higher 0.6% to $310.65 Wednesday afternoon.
