    From a selfish/personal perspective,I hope Spain is selected as a speak some Spanish and Portuguese folks make me chuckle with their pronunciations. So it's settled. On to the Frontera!

    @ricardocabesa , cuidado... yo también hablo español pero estoy convencido que Elon tomará esta decisión por otras (y mejores) razones que la manera que los Portugueses hablan! El más importante es que la Gigafactory 2 se establece en un sitio más favorable para T≡SLA, y indirectamente a sus clientes! Naturalmente el país también tendra beneficios! Que te vayas bien, como a los Españoles y los Portugueses... :)
    (Note for non-Spanish speakers: essentially I responded to Ricardo that Elon is likely to take the decision on EU location for other (& better...) reasons than the Portuguese pronunciation... :D)

    Ricardo, como é meu amigo ?
    Isso diz-se ?!
    Vem a Portugal passar uns dias, comer bem,beber bom vinho e lidar com os Portugueses e vais ver como somos mais adaptáveis, flexíveis que os Espanhois...

    Amigo, como hablas un poquito español te dejo un ratito de curso de Portunhol , si ???

    After you taste portuguese red wine in comparison with the spanish ones, you'll change your idea.
    For sure!
    and remember red wine is good because of sun radiation, so Red wine is has good as the solar energy that powers it,
    get it ?
    ;-)
