I just got an email from Tesla announcing their Grand Opening at Fashion Island for this Friday, Nov 18, 2011. (For those of you who are not Orange County savvy, Fashion Island is a shopping mall in Newport Beach.) The announcement lists an address of 367 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach, CA I find the announcement both exciting and disturbing, as there is *already* a Tesla store in Newport Beach: 1100 Pacific Coast Highway, Newport Beach, CA, 92663, not five miles from Fashion Island. (Tesla Newport Beach | Tesla Store Locations | Tesla Motors) Since I just got this message this morning, I have not had time to dash over to see if they are moving to a new store, or adding a new store. I know Newport Beach is loaded with people in the kind of tax bracket necessary to allow Tesla purchases, but TWO stores? Even Fletcher Jones Mercedes, Sterling BMW, Newport Lexus, and McKenna Porsche, and Ferrari of Newport Beach, have only a single store. (Audi and Bentley have to share. ) (Lamborghini Newport Beach isn't really in Newport - They're in nearby Costa Mesa.) I'll have to clear my schedule for Friday evening and check it out. Maybe order a couple. -- Ardie I like white. My wife prefers black.
