Texas : An event celebrating the start of Tesla's "gigafactory" in Texas is attracting electric car lovers to Austin for an enormous party on Thursday.
After Tesla's colourful but controversial chairman, CEO, and founder Elon Musk tweeted about the event, online buzz grew, with reports of perhaps 15,000 people attending the official plant opening.
Tesla owners planned cross-country trips, and others told the uninvited to show up. Although Tesla hasn't provided any details about the festivities, rumours abound, including reports that there will be an open bar and concert at the company's 74 acre estate in Texas.
Video footage posted by Tesla fans indicates that new models may have been displayed at the event with drone footage and other video footage. "I got a golden ticket!" Luke Metger, president of a Texas environmental organisation, tweeted on the eve of the party, attaching a screen-shot of his invite to the Cyber Rodeo - Giga Texas gala
