Tesla Pops Up in Hamptons With Glam Shipping Containers

A Curbed tipster clued us in that a Tesla brick and mortar store (well, it's not exactly a traditional showroom) finally arrived in the Hamptons. Let's all give a collective, eco-friendly, "woohoo!" In May, we speculated that the luxury electric car company, Tesla, would be opening a pop-up shop made from shipping containers on the East End. We spotted plenty of these cars around town this summer, but we were beginning to wonder if this endeavor was going to happen. Maybe all of this was just some kind of eco-chic myth fueled by Twitter? Well, we are please to report that the Tesla Motors Hamptons pop-up store has arrived in Southampton near Flying Point Road, and it's glorious. The doors still aren't open to the public, but we hear that is happening soon. Built from shipping containers, and you know our deep love of luxury recycling, the space makes a dramatic visual impact.
