Tesla to Open Store in Silicon Valley Next Week

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Electric car startup Tesla Motors will open its second store, this one in Silicon Valley, to the public on Tuesday, July 22, the company tells us this morning. Tesla CEO Ze’ev Drori wrote an announcement on the company’s web site this weekend that details the company’s production status and notes that the increased delivery of the Roadster “dovetails with the Grand Opening of our second Tesla store.” The store will be located near Stanford in Menlo Park, Calif., relatively close to its San Carlos, Calif., headquarters.

Well...the Tesla show room really is up and kicking (sort of).  This weekend they had quite a few private events with lots of glitz (think classy floral arrangements and servers wandering around of trays of pretty drinks).  There was even a red carpet.  I took a few spy photos on Sunday.

Good spy work stins.  You're well on your way to becoming a secret agent.

Nice photos, you should have tried to crash the event. ;)

Hahah, yeah, I thought about that.  But they had a pretty big guy who looked like he was a bouncer....

Yeah, they were really speedy!  It was definitely defunct for quite a long time...it's the one next to Stanford Park Hotel (not directly across from Safeway, that one is still pretty sad looking).

 

The public opening is tomorrow.  I would imagine people will be filtering through all day checking things out.  Hopefully I can lobby for a Huddler field trip!
