    That is a nice location, and 350,000 square feet?! Lots of space.

    I was thinking the same thing (track) last night when the news broke about PA site. Don't know if possible but Stanford owns everything up there.

    Now if they take over the defunct auto dealership (formerly Ford/Volvo) down the street at El Camino everything will be close by. (The current Menlo Park facility was supposedly a somewhat short lease in the first place).

    Maybe they can convince PA to finally fix up Deer Creek and Arastradero? I ride there less these days due to the condition of those roads...

    And Page Mill is not the best way to drive up to Skyline. (It's a great bike descent, though).

    Hey Doug,

    After your pic of the new location.... where does Tesla Motors stand today with the site? Are there any signs of progress? Has anyone confirmed shipment into the location? and finally why the long pause????

    Does anyone know if TM has completed the build out of the new HQ offices and Battery manufacturing plant? Are there any new pictures?
