    Join Florida Tesla Enthusiasts at the Gainesville Cars & Coffee

    The long awaited Gainesville Supercharger Station is finally operational!  The station is located at Butler Plaza in the Whole Foods parking lot where Gainesville Cars & Coffee hosts their monthly gathering for automotive enthusiasts of all types.  So, after receiving an invite from them, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to both meet other car enthusiasts while celebrating the opening of the Gainesville Supercharger Station.

    The Cars & Coffee meet is free to attend. We will be joining them for their June 9th event from 9 AM to 11 AM. Cars will be parked in the lot on the west side of the Whole Foods building next to the covered patio area. Free coffee will be provided to attendees. The Whole Foods Patio pay-by-weight hot bar will be open offering breakfast items for sale. 

    Following the Cars & Coffee event, we will be reserving the patio area for a continuing brunch/lunch Tesla club meet-up.


    The 10 - Supercharger Terminals are located in the Whole Foods parking lot nearby where the Cars & Coffee meet is held.  The location of the Supercharger Station is programmed into your Tesla's navigation system.
