    From Jurvetson's public Facebook album. All Images (c) 2015 Steve Jurvetson.

    UPDATE: Facebook photo album was deleted. It was getting hundreds of comments. The album mentioned the factory is in Phase 1, the building is 72 feet tall, and the group photo is of the Telsa Board.

    Kimbal Musk posted many of the same photos to his Instagram page March 3rd, seen here:

    The picture of Elon with aviators is screaming for photoshop... I think TMC needs to hold a contest.

    Why are they driving ICE SUV's? They should have pulled-up in Model X's. Or even 85D's. Ten people = 2 Model S. At least don't show the gas guzzlers in the picture.

    Just taking a guess, they went offroad location. You can see a black Tesla in one of the pictures.

    Yes in the 7th photo showing J.B. by himself next to a trailer.

    For the photo taken from a hill overlooking the site I'm guessing they did not walk there, they drove.

    Well, that would be Arnold as a T101. I think E is sporting more of a T1000 look.

    Good eye! I wonder if it would be accessible to the public. Or just for Tesla executives who are visiting in their Model S?

    I would say the portable supercharger is not open to the public. It is behind a secure fence and guard...
