I received an email today that announced Tesla as a sponsor of the Desert Concorso Italian Car Show in Palm Desert, CA in March. This car show is related to Concorso Italiano that is held in August in Monterey, CA. This is the first time that I have noticed Tesla marketing (although I admit that I have not been looking for it). I just thought it was interesting that Tesla is promoting themselves at this event. Here is a quote from the email: [FONT="]Tesla Joins Desert Concorso:[/FONT][FONT="] [/FONT] DesertConcorso’s goal is to become a little Geneva Auto Show centered around our corelove affair with the Italian cars and lifestyle. We are therefore verypleased to welcome Tesla Motors as our newest sponsor with their innovative andvery stylish approach to the motorcar. Tesla will be at DC offering testdrives, and as a special promotion for exhibitors, Tesla will be offering avery limited number of factory tours to those exhibitors who are first tocontact us. The factory is located in Fremont, CA. The tourwill also include a spirited test drive and a chance to meet some new age “carguys”.
