I’m up for that, spend a couple of months exploring that part of the world, watch the F1 race and also take a tour of the factory.There was a time when a US consumer could buy a German car like BMW or Porsche and pick it up at the factory and drive around Europe. This way the transportation cost was reduced and when you brought the car back to the US it would be considered a used car so the excise tax wouldn't apply. That's what I've been told at least.........
... and it's Tri-motors delivered first.I was getting ready to post the exact same question.
If it was any other state where they could deliver locally, I would assume they would deliver there first.
I was getting my hopes up that I may get an earlier delivery based some assumptions.
1. Dual motors delivered first.
2. Deliver locally first.
But I remembered the funky rules Texas has about buying cars directly from the maker.
The Texas legislature just finished their session yesterday. I haven't heard about any changes on this. They wont meet again for two years. Bah
I was looking for a post that said the delivery order. I think originally they said the single motor. Then that got changed. In the past the tri motor vehicles came after the dual motor. I would like to see the post where they mention what the current order is.... and it's Tri-motors delivered first.
Oh, well, out of state people can pick them up anywhere. Texas law doesn't stop that. Bring your temp plates with you!What happened to picking them up from the factory in Texas. I live in the Texas panhabdle even if they have to leave the state, they could cut thru sw Oklahoma and then go back into the panhandle without going out of the way.
So hilarious. I would happily fly down to TX, pick up my CT and drive back to the PNW. Seems like deliveries will happen at a road side Tesla tent in NM, but I’m ok with that.If I understand correctly, the trucks will have to be shipped past state lines before being shipped to buyers in Texas. So maybe all the states next to Texas now have the best chance of getting them first. This whole situation
I think (but I'm not sure though) that we have to register the vehicle in our state (Arkansas in my case), show sales tax was paid, have licensing completed and bring purchase price, negating the the desirable option of buying a brand new 'used' vehicle. Of course, we don't have excise tax here, just sales tax which is bad enough. Even private sales used cars are gouged in this manner. They'll take our firstborn child if we let them. Meanwhile, we sit idly by.There was a time when a US consumer could buy a German car like BMW or Porsche and pick it up at the factory and drive around Europe.
