There has been a lot of recent interest on the subject of an imminent opening of a long-waited Naples Service Center. In July, Jerome Guillen, President, Automotive at Tesla, got our attention. He posted the following solicitation on LinkedIn asking for suitable spaces for service centers, specifically referencing Naples, Florida.
Yesterday, after receiving a lot of rumors, I located a building permit for the Naples Service Center. It is actually in Fort Myers at a former AutoMatch USA location at 8900 Colonial Center Dr., Fort Myers, FL 33905.
Here is an excerpt of the permit.
Here is a vicinity map:
