    In Ft Lauderdale for a conference and decided to visit the famed Dania Beach Tesla store. Was fun visiting, checking out the store, and chatting with the staff.

    I talked with one of the Tesla store workers in Oregon and they said that they will be getting the Model X to display in June.

    Should have let us know. The Florida group has over 300 members now and love any excuse for a meet-up.

    It was sort of impromptu to decide to do a visit but I was thinking of you, Nigel :)

    Yep. It was in the middle of the desert. It was cool. Too bad there was only one car to look at and it was out for a test drive. The list for test drives were booked out for a week. There is no other cars in the showroom.

    Checked out the Superchargers in Las Vegas. It is in Downtown Las Vegas rather than on the strip. But it is in a covered garage. There was a white and black Tesla parked there.

    Thanks for the heads up, Spleen. Will be heading to Vegas in a week and will check it out! Still hoping to get the factory tour with you when we do the Teslive event in July :smile:

    Hopefully they can get something arranged! If not, might need to arrange something directly ourselves. :)

    Santana Row store in San Jose..where I did my test drive in Dec 2012...one week after I reserved my MS. They only had one car in the showroom back then.

    Same here, except I test drove mine one week before I ordered. Had to be sure it was love at first sight. :tongue: They only had one car then too, not counting the skeleton model.

    I visited the Rocklin store/SC this weekend. Very nice, big facility. Seems like Tesla has a common model they are following for all stores to make them identical. How very Apple-like.
