OC METRO â€“ Tesla Motors may open dealership in Newport Beach
Is there one in San Diego?
No. They have a rep there but all servicing and sales is still out of LA.

San Diego is coming soon too.
As usual, the article's author isn't able to, or doesn't want to, grasp that the company-owned stores aren't dealerships. Maybe I'm being overly sensitive, and people are using the term "dealer" in a generic sense, but it's undermining what I see as a significant difference between Tesla's approach to selling their products and that of all of the other car companies, who are using dealers to hawk their wares. When I compare my poor to middling experiences with car dealers to the excellent relationship I have with the people that work at the Seattle Tesla Store, well, I'll take a company-owned operation any day.
Like fingernails on my mental chalkboard. It's Fisker that's a wannabe rival to Tesla, not vice versa. Who has got cars currently in production? Who has slipped their production schedule?
I'm preaching to the choir here, but every once in a while I feel the need to release a little steam. :biggrin:
I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
It's really hard being down here in San Diego when the only service center is near the edge of my range and a pain-in-the-a$$ drive. Any news on when/where? Care to share your source?
Local vs out of town rival. Fisker are the hometown boys.
I say" dealer" as often as I say "store". It's a tough habit to break. On the good side Iv'e pretty much licked saying "gas" pedal.
I agree with you on all accounts though.
No attributable source on the SD store.
Tesla Motors themselves: Tesla Motors - Tesla Stores
The map shows the SD store, but currently just gives a telephone number for it.
They have a Rep in SD but have not built a facility.
And the phone number for San Diego is the LA store number.

It does seem Downey is the final choice for the Model S plant but only because they are getting a lot of press. No decision has been announced though.
As for Newport, the guys at the LA store say that there are stores planned for Newport and San Diego soon.

There is no longer a SD Rep. That is why SD number now goes to LA.
The store will change that.
