It all boils down to freedom. I am sick of the "nanny state karens" that want to stick their nose into other peoples business. Like the kids in pre-school that had melt downs when the other kid got a bigger scoop of mashed potatoes at lunch which they really did not like but were just triggered anyway.I wish they would forget about trying to control what customers can do after they have bought it -- get rid of the resell agreement.
Yet I also want them to not let too many scalpers in the line. My preferred solution would be to limit multiple trucks to the same person or account.
Your first truck is available to you when you reach the front of the line. Subsequent reservations to the same person then have a waiting period. You can't buy another one for some period of time -- I would put it at 12 months.
You might have a few scalpers sell one truck, but they won't have access to another one to scalp for at least 6 months ( or whatever term Tesla sets for subsequent purchase).
I see multiple advantages to this. Tesla does not have to try to pursue anybody. It is probably easy for Tesla to keep track of who has purchased a truck. As a corallary, you should not be able to transfer you reservations.
Does this stop scalping -- no -- but it does greatly limit the scalping. Yet it also allows people to do what they want or what their life circumstances say should happen without Tesla having to worry about it.
