    Makes perfect sense. It's 114 mi north of Miami.

    Between I-95 and FL Turnpike I believe. Not there yet, but sounds absolutely definite.

    Hi Ethan,

    That's certainly a valid question. However, I doubt that Nigel would be comfortable revealing his source. Knowing Nigel I would assign a high level of confidence to information that he posts even if he is not at liberty to reveal the details. None of these Superchargers initiatives are done deals, but you can be assured that Tesla is seriously looking at the Port St. Lucie area for a possible Supercharger location.

    I hear ya. It's just too tantalizing of a post to not back up the statement with information. I'd kill to be able to road trip in our Model S.

    Believe me I share your desire for confirmation of Florida Superchargers locations. After things progress I'll ask a club member who lives near the location to periodically look for signs of construction.

    Regards,

    I've scoured government websites for building permits with any mention of Tesla and haven't found anything besides the one in Ft. Myers. It's just tough doing all that sleuthing only to read the tantalizing statement about the Port St. Lucie potential supercharger. I guess Elon delaying his supercharger announcement twice hasn't helped things. Hope we hear soon so I can make a decision on fly vs. drive for an upcoming trip we're taking!

    It's a difficult proposition to confirm Supercharger locations. As you no doubt know very few permit websites allow you to search on Tesla, most require you to supply a permit number, address, lot number, etc. Likewise its possible that Nigel's information may come from a source that actually preceeds the permitting process.

    Thanks Nick! Town Center is a great location, good shops/eats and just off I-95 jct.121 but also easily accessible from the Turnpike.

    My apologies to everyone that I couldn't reveal sources up-thread. I'm sure you'll forgive me...

    I can't seem to locate "Town Center" on the map, and I'm not local to the area. Would someone kindly link to the location on a map for me?

    Thanks much, found it now. Almost exactly halfway between Miami and Orlando, and easily accessible from both I-95 and the Turnpike. Plus, lots of stuff to do (or at least let the rest of the family do) while charging. Perfect!!

    Using the location info supplied above, here's a Google Maps link to the supposed location:

    27.314186,-80.405075 - Google Maps

    I note that the other thread is for general Florida SC speculation, so I expect to see PSL-specific construction updates here. Looking forward to it!

    If there are any folks that live in the Port St. Lucie area this video provides a clue to the exact parking spots.
