Texas Governor Rick Perry wants to drive Tesla to Texas


Interesting visit from Texas Governor Rick Perry to California where he arrived at a meeting in a Silver Tesla Model S. Perry hopes to get the Gigafactory nod from Tesla and perhaps steal some other Tesla business from the Golden State.


The strange part is that you still cannot sell a Tesla in a Tesla store in Texas.
