Wired decided to visit Tesla Motors' factory in California where they currently make the increasingly popular Model S.

Thanks to Wired we have the chance to go behind the scenes at Tesla Motors' facility packed with 160 specialized robots and around 3,000 workers manufacturing the pure electric Model S. The production rate at this moment has increased to approximately 400 cars per week.

Tesla Motors bought the factory in 2010 from Toyota and spent a significant amount of time and money preparing it for Model S production which kicked off in mid-2012. The five-million square-foot factory is located in Fremont and it currently produces only the Model S, but will be joined in the future by a cheaper sedan and an entry-level crossover.
