TESLA CHARGES UP ON EL CAMINO ... </B>Unplug one electric car company and plug in another. That's what's happening in Palo Alto at 4180 El Camino Real, with the news that <B>Tesla Motors</B> opened its new showroom this week in the former <B>Fisker Silicon Valley</B> dealership. Fisker, which ran into financial trouble, was the first exclusively electric-car dealer in town; Tesla is the second. Tesla has been busy making upgrades to the 27,500-square-foot showroom and service center, which happens to be located next to yet another luxury car dealer, <B>McLaren San Francisco</B>, at 4192 El Camino, which shares its space with <B>Volvo Palo Alto</B>. The newly painted building is expected to house a variety of Teslas, making the northwest corner of Arastradero Road at El Camino Real one of the snazziest in town, automotively speaking.

It's unfortunate that these great Shop Talk articles are buried in the A&E section. Also, why did Elena Kadvany literally regurgitate what Daryl wrote here? This is a much better article. Just so sad that it is so hard to find now.

I think that this column contains more useful news than the entire rest of the paper. Why is it in the newspaper so irregulaarly?

Fisher went bankrupt because Elon. Musk sued him into it; he was originally Tesla's master designer. ironic that tesla is taking over the space. Musk considers Fisker a traitor.
