    Saw a news blurb that Tesla pulled the plug so to speak on the Singapore store yesterday. I have been unable to confirm.

    The Singapore store was also to have serviced Thailand and Malaysia, so I guess those markets are gone for awhile now too. I think it makes more sense really to focus on Japan now though -- Tesla should sell as many Roadsters here as possible and ramp up for selling the Model S here in volume. Wasting time, money, and resources on token markets probably isn't the best play at the moment and clearly Tesla sees that. Maybe the tax break not coming through will turn out to be a good thing by helping them keep focus.

    Tesla has closed the Singapore store after selling only 2 cars for the Singapore market and 3 cars for export. The news report didn't say where, but I wouldn't be surprised if one car went to Brunei. Tesla pulls the plug on Singapore
