Elon Musk plans Tesla Supercharger drive-in restaurant, and Twitter goes nuts
9 January 2018 - Autoblog
Outside of his Steve Jobs-ian product reveal events, Elon Musk's Twitter feed has become arguably the most important communication platform for the Tesla chief and serial entrepreneur, a window into his ambitious, audacious and often playful psyche.
It's where he announced his plan to launch a SpaceX rocket carrying a Roadster into orbit around Mars, among other things, and it helps cement his brand as a man of the future.
Gonna put an old school drive-in, roller skates & rock restaurant at one of the new Tesla Supercharger locations in LA
Is he serious? Who knows. It strikes us as a not-half-bad idea in car-mad Los Angeles, even if it would be a weird mashup of old-meets-new (the name Tesla's Drive-In somehow feels disorienting in a time-space-continuum kind of way). But in this case, at least, Twitter definitely has risen to the task. We'll let the social network speak for itself.
Can you build a hipster truck stop on I5? If so, I will buy a Tesla or two! Avocado toast, single origin coffee, pressed juice, hot shave beard trims, voodoo doughnuts, boba tea, factory robots making sandwiches? Loves is BORING.
