Jeff Roberts caught it driving pretty quickly, on his video today. It's driving toward the camera on the center road. Look from 2:33-2:45.

I think we are starting to get to the point where they may start using the prototype to dial in some of the assembly machines (or at least preparing to). We don't know which parts of the line they have brought over from Fremont at this point

Well, if it's fake, it's three-dimensional with headlights. You can see the glint of the body and cab viewed in 4k.

Do you not see the other video by Jeff Roberts? Clearly the truck is driving between the buildings. There is also video of the transport truck with its back open that is the same transport spotted in NYC unloading the truck. Also, if you look at other photos of this truck from before, you will see plenty of miss alignment issues in the body so i'm pretty sure they wont be useing the early prototypes helping align/setup machines.

Might be doing a line placement drive through as a dummy, we used to do that with dummy solar panels in factories I helped build.

Hopefully, Tesla is filming some cool apocalyptic, industrial, futuristic video of the CT racing in the unfinished factory swerving in and out of columns as welders are welding and sparks are flying all over the place.

It's really pretty simple actually.

1) Elon now lives in Austin
2) Elon likes to drive the CT prototype around
3) Elon is known to be very involved in the work being done in the gigafactories
4) RHIP (Rank Has It's Privileges)... like parking wherever you want

Q.E.D.
