Tesla also is believed to be pursuing additional land purchases in Southeast Austin along the Texas 130 corridor, according to local real estate developers knowledgeable about the area.
A battery-making operation also could be a possibility, as well as a test-driving area, analysts have said.
“We’re going to make it a factory that is going to be stunning,” Musk said in announcing the project. “It’s going to basically be an ecological paradise — birds in the trees, butterflies, fish in the stream — and it will be open to the public as well.””

“Ecological paradise” lol! Apparently the man’s never set foot in Texan heat!!!
LOL a commie with ugly cars.
@Bryan Noth Why would they need to build a test-driving facility? They've got the Circuit of the Americas about 5 minutes away!!
