Amid a flurry of recent Tesla Model 3 sightings near the company's Palo Alto headquarters comes a unique sighting that reveals a never-before-seen Model 3 paint color presumed to be "Signature Red".

First deliveries of Tesla's all-electric Model 3 is expected to take place in July.

Tesla is so concerned that people are misinterpreting the Model 3 that it wrote about the need to temper expectations in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing in early May. The Bolt's cargo advantage is surprising considering its 164-inch length, compared to the Model 3's 184.8 Inches. This suggests that the rear seats in the Model 3 fold flat, potentially adding more storage. Despite a market that is friendly to luxury SUV's, the Model X was only able to sell an estimated 2,000 units last month.

The Model 3 interior was recently caught on video.

Musk said the move has led to confusion as buyers wait for the Model 3 release, thinking it will be a better vehicle than the Model S.

Musk also tweeted: "I'd highly recommend that you upgrade to the latest Model S, only if you really want a smaller sedan should you get a 3".

Tesla initially wanted to name the affordable electric vehicle as the Model E, which combined with the Model S, the Model X, and the unannounced Model Y, will spell out the word "sexy".

While it resulted in some of the best shots of the Model 3 release candidates so far, Conzet couldn't get one of the vehicles charging, but it begs the question "why would they park there if not to charge?"

Of all the details revealed in the leaked document, the most intriguing for many will be the 0-60mph sprint time, which is confirmed as 5.6 seconds for the Model 3.
