Silicon Valley's Tesla dealership opens its doors

Today, in Menlo Park, Calif., Silicon Valley's first Tesla dealership opened to the public on the site of a former Chevy dealership.

This is what it looks like today.


This it what it looked like nine months ago.


Inside, there is mostly empty space. Two prototypes and one of the models used for aerodynamic testing sit on the showroom floor.


The real action is inside the service center, where six cars, hot off the production line, are being prepared for pickup by their new owners, who likely ordered them a year or more ago.


Many many more would-be owners are still waiting. In the meantime, they can make a Tesla fashion statement.
