Now, as school starts back up and the days get shorter-- and the new team has had a chance to get their feet under them (and a cooler display car!)-- I thought it would be appropriate to update the blog with some pictures of the Ross Park Mall kiosk and where Tesla goes from here.

Tesla is pretty tight-lipped about their future expansion plans-- anywhere-- and understandably so. Irrationality seems to haunt the company in the form of dealer protests, bizarre zoning actions and even prohibitive legislation. Even so, I've been assured numerous times that a permanent location was coming soon. This kiosk is the beginning-- the foothold-- of a growing Tesla presence here.Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett signed legislation specifically allowing Tesla to build 5 retail store locations-- it only stands to reason that having at least one in Pittsburgh would be consistent with that plan. The kiosk makes for a great way to increase the local ownership levels and simultaneously train up a core staff of people who will become the experienced workforce in a larger operation as it expands into a full-sized service center and retail store.

Cranberry Supercharger a possibility. As for time-frame, I would expect to see the announcement in advance of volume Model X deliveries... which puts us somewhere around year's end. My guess.
And then: Elon will unveil the Model 3... in March 2016. Imagine what 2017 will bring!
