Parking lot with hundreds of refresh Tesla Model S vehicles found near Fremont factory [Update]

Refresh Model S parking lots

With a little over one week to go before the first deliveries officially kick off (hopefully), a parking lot with hundreds of refresh Model S vehicles has been discovered near Tesla’s Fremont factory.

In the last few weeks we have seen the Fremont factory itself packed with the new vehicles. Dozens of Model S were moved to an overflow area on the test track, and even some were lining a fence adjacent to the railroad tracks.

As recently as last week we have also seen hundreds of them show up in the logistics lot waiting to be loaded onto car carriers, as if they were heading out in preparation for customer deliveries.

Now it appears Tesla may have simply run out of space to store them all. A parking lot just 3.3 miles away from the factory has been discovered packed with hundreds of the dusty vehicles. The discovery was made by Larry Davick, who posted a pair of videos to YouTube showing the parking lot appears to be open and fully accessible to the public.

Given that CEO Elon Musk has said they need another week to “tweak” the vehicle before deliveries can begin, and the fact that they have hundreds of what appear to be fully complete vehicles, it is likely software tweaks that are holding up deliveries.

According to Davick, the lot is located at the intersection of Automall Parkway and Osgood Rd in Fremont.
