    Austin

    Austin has a very big Tesla family and I had a great time at the Roadster Rally last year. Would be great to do something like that again. Since San Antonio so close could do a combined event too. There are four Roadsters there now I believe.

    Tesla doesn't technically have any dealerships. They call the stores similar to what Apple has done.
    Tesla doesn't currently have a store in Austin, just Houston.

    Tesla said they would announce their Supercharger plans in June so hopefully Texas will be taken care of.

    Tesla Cruise in Austin?

    Wanting to know if the Tesla cruise usually happens around November every year. Has it already happened this year? If not, we definitely want to be apart of the next one!

    For those living in the Austin area that own Roadsters - Who do you have inspect your car every year in order to get the windshield stickers that are required in Texas?

    July remember. I would be surprised if all the superchargers in the state are installed by then.

    I asked GeorgeB about this on Sunday...even though Elon promised a Supercharger announcement in July, George was thinking it may well not happen that soon.

    And that's just for an announcement. Putting these things in takes a lot of time and money; I doubt there will be many installed by the announcement. (I can live with not many being installed yet; but not making an announcement until long after they are asking people to commit $100k to the car is incredibly frustrating).

    Yeah. Looks like I had the date wrong. From the sounds of it, it's going to be a slow rollout. Will be nice to finally get some idea of their plans.

    mfarendt - Sticker Stop on 620 near Cedar Park does a great job, and is really fast. They were able to find the lack of an emissions test for a Tesla Roadster in their computer and issue the two stickers. They didn't even charge me for the Emissions test, so I've got that $14 annually defraying the cost of the car.
