Tesla Motors celebrated the opening of their first stand alone dealership location this past weekend by hosting a red carpet launch party. Quincy Jones, Jenny McCarthy and Jenna Elfman were among the celebrities that attended. The dealership is the last major piece of infrastructure the company needed. Now there’s just the matter of building some inventory. Tesla began production of it’s electric Roadster last month and as of now only four cars have been made. With little stock the new dealership obviously looks a bit spare which makes you wonder if they opened too soon. Tesla do hope to be rolling 100 cars a month off the assembly line by early next year.

The company already has another dealership location under-construction closer to Silicon Valley. Much like Apple, all the Tesla dealerships will be owned and controlled by the company. Some details are available from the Tesla blog here. Further coverage is available at AutoBlogGreen, Treehugger, and Engadget.
