Today as I was returning home about 2:40 PM, I passed a light gray Model X on its left side on Highway #22 between San Juan and Bayamon, my home city. It seems to have less riding height than my 2009 Chevy Equinox because I saw over its roof from my driver view, and I saw a bit of the the interior (light gray/ white). I cannot identify the model year since this is the very first I have ever seen (I saw several Model S EVs here as I posted before in this same forum).

Since I was in a hurry I couldn't take any pictures, and I was driving alone. The best I could do was try to slow down and grab an image through the rear view mirror. So I have no pictures , but if the driver takes the same highway every day, I might catch it again in the future.

FYI, if it had air suspension it can automatically lower at speeds set by the owner. I had set mine to lower at 60 as an example.

Aside: it also has an option to remember the location when you manually select a different height. i.e. visit friends with steep driveway and you raised the suspension or visit a parent that you were picking up so you lowered the suspension in their driveway.

As you may know, Tesla doesn't actually do model years - they change things whenever they choose, generally with little or no notification.

Right now, the only difference between the very first cars and the latest car that will be visible externally is the AP2 sensor set - and you have to be close to the car and know what you're looking for to see that (the easiest part IMHO is the fender mounted cameras.)
