If the Tesla building contractor is using pre-fabricated panels similar to Tesla Berlin it may be late next year!

I watched a large hill become a football/baseball/softball/soccer sports complex at one of our county properties, the site work company had several large tandem wheeled units with tandem scraper buckets running around the clock for months to lower the hill and form a flat plateau for our sports fields. Impressive to watch each day.

Elon was asked on the Automotive News podcast interview on why Austin, TX won out for the assembly factory. Key leadership employees who would be transferred to TX or Oklahoma overwhelmingly voted for Austin.

Recently, Teslarati reported that many of the company’s executives were asked where they would want to spend time if they were needed in the same area as the new factory. A significant factor in Tesla’s decision to choose Austin was the fact that Tesla’s principal members were more interested in Austin than other Texas cities.

“When talking to key members of the team that would need to move to Austin from California in order to get the factory going, Austin was their top pick to be totally frank,” Musk said. “That was a big factor in choosing Texas and Austin. Specifically Austin. I guess a lot of people from California, if you ask them what’s the one place you’d move outside of California, it’s Austin.”

Musk has also applied for a Texas driver’s license recently and has sold his multiple California estates.“

Can't say I disagree with the reasoning. But I might be a little biased.
