    Agreed, perhaps my remark alluding to deliveries this month was premature. However, if Elon is to be believed then we are going to see a very significant ramp up in October-November and Tesla should do whatever it can to bring the Tampa service center on-line in that timeframe.

    Tampa store

    Will the Tampa location be only a service center or will it be a location where one can take a test drive? Or is this not yet known?

    A Tampa service center at International Plaza is fantasitic in my opinion. I could literally get the S serviced during a football game

    Orlando is probably the best place for the actual dealership as well - it will promote the brand to more national and international travellers. Does anybody know if the Orlando facility will also be able to provide service or is it just a showroom?

    For Tampa Service think I-75/I-4/SR301 triangle, it's service only so far.

    For Orlando think Millennia Mall so very unlikely there will be service there.

    Nigel, somebody posted pictures of a bunch of Model S's at the proposed Tampa Service Center but did not provide the address. (secret?) So it sounds like it didn't end up @ International Plaza. Where you mention would probably be best overall as it is a bit closer for the Orlando folks, but a few miles farther for me (and you). i suppose you would come straight up 75 and skip 275.

    I-75/I-4/US301.

    Sorry I lived there (about 1 miles straight line) for 16 years. I couldn't help myself.

    Ha, dinosaurs not allowed in FL unless they're grey-haired and driving cadillacs!

    Exactly. It's an easy trip from Sarasota.

    And driving 45-50 in the left lane of I-75!

    Which is exactly the same drive (actually Brandon to Sarasota) I was doing when I came the closest I have ever come to hitting something (going faster than 5mph). I was cruising at about 80-85 (my Dodge Neon maximum practical speed, well above the maximum safe speed) and there was a grey-haired dinosaur going about 30 in the left lane (the other two lanes were empty). I didn't realize it fast enough, missed them by inches and almost lost control of my car.

    And where is the future Tampa service center exactly? I might need to swing by some time to have a look-see.

    I don't know exactly where it is, but I think NigelM does. Apparently it's near the Hard Rock / Amphitheater (in the triangle formed by I75/I4/US301) East of Tampa. When I inquired to Tesla on whether or not my car was actually there, they said "not yet, but on its way"
