Hawthorne, California (Tesla design studio)

Located at the SpaceX facility this is the location where current and future vehicles are designed, prototyped and tested. You can visit the lobby while you charge your Model S outside at the supercharger but that is about it. You’re not going to get in unless you know someone at Tesla that can get you in and that is extremely unlikely to happen as it’s where all future vehicles are designed. The referral scheme may get you an invite.


SpaceX (next door to Hawthorne)

If you know a staff member that is willing to risk their job then feel free to message them. Very unlikely to get anywhere near this. Although you can see the SpaceX rocket from the outside.


UK Service Centres

Look out for Clubhouse events where Tesla open up their doors for all owners to visit


Approved Tesla Bodyshop locations

Watch out for open days within the events section of the group


I don’t own a Tesla vehicle

You can see more inside photos from the factory & Tilburg on this page.
