    As many of you know, our office is in the same business park as the SpaceX, the Tesla Design Center and the Hawthorne Supercharger station. As a result, not only do we get some great opportunity for communication directly with Tesla, but we get to see some random and neat stuff floating around the Supercharger on a day-to-day basis.

    We thought it might be fun to start a thread documenting random daily photo snaps at the Supercharger and the Design Center.

    To kick it off, here's a couple quick photos from earlier this afternoon:

    An occasional pic of the Supercharger system monitor inside the Hawthorne design center is something I'd greatly appreciate.

    Yes indeed, a (weekly) photo of the screen of the Tesla Supercharger Dashboard would be great.

    Noted! I'll stop inside from time-to-time to get a snap of the Dashboard for everyone.

    I just walked over to the Design Studio, and per everyone's requests, here's a shot of the Dashboard:

    And for all of you that are waiting for your Model X, here's a little teaser :wink:

    Thanks!

    If you get a chance, get a shot of the dashboard when it is in a "top 10" mode.

    I feel like a fly on the wall (or airborne) in the Tesla Design Center!

    Thanks! Great info!

    San Juan Capistrano sure is busy...that much energy delivered from only 7 stalls!

    Yeah I know. Us San Diegans are dying to get another SC somewhere between here and Los Angeles to offset the crowding.

    Culver City has pushed Hawthorne off the top ten. I haven't been there yet but I imagine it's a much nicer place to be.

    I'm still surprised how much effort they put into expanding Hawthorne only to build Culver City shortly thereafter.

    Me too. And if they were going to expand Hawthorne, why not a year ago? It's all probably just due to a stressed out and overworked Supercharger team...

    Did anyone notice that the Model X seemed to be without outside mirrors? Looked like a camera stem instead. Very cool if it passes the inspectors.

    Yes that mockup in the Hawthorne lobby has always been like that. It was built years ago.

    Unless I'm reading it wrong, I think the stats are just for the last 24 hours. Is there a monthly/annual/lifetime view?
