Please scroll down to the bottom of the article for updated status.

An article in the Palm Coast Observer on January 31, 2020, identified the probable location of a "Coming Soon" Supercharger on the Tesla Find Us map.  According to the article, Palm Coast Wawa to open in May, with Tesla Superchargers to follow, "The Wawa under construction at Bulldog Drive and State Road 100 should be open in May, and Tesla is in talks to have eight Superchargers for electric vehicles on the site."

Here's a vicinity map: (For a full-sized image, click on the map.)

Update as of August 15, 2020.

The eagle-eyed editor of Supercharge.info, the unofficial website that tracks Supercharger installations, has located another active permit application for this future Supercharger Station.

The Wawa's address is 5600 FL-100 East, Palm Coast, FL 32164.

Although the application doesn’t specifically mention Tesla, it does describe an Electric Vehicle Charging Station at this location. Rack Electric, Tesla’s most frequently used electrical contractor in Florida, is also listed as the assigned contractor. So, we can be pretty sure that this will be another Supercharger Station at a Wawa.

A member of the Tesla Motors Club forum located the proposed plans for this future Supercharger Station.  Here are some of excerpts.

Above is the overall site plan of the new Wawa.  The Supercharger installation will be constructed in the upper right corner of the plan.

Above is an enlargement of the upper right corner of the previous plan showing the Supercharger Station Components.

Above are the construction notes and legend for the previous plan. The plans show that there will be 8 Version 3 charging stalls.  The large structure in the center is the Wawa's trash and recycling compound.  Facing north, the utility transformer for the Supercharger will be located to the left of the compound and to the left of the existing utility transformer serving the Wawa.  The rest of the Supercharger equipment will be installed to the right of the compound.  Four of the charging stalls will be located directly to the right of the compound the other four will be located directly south of the compound.
