My usual response to this with any of my cars; "I got mine."

It’s not me who’s worried, I may have worded that incorrectly. I’m asking if the people selling are worried, but it seems like they don’t care about the clause.

I’m enjoyong my truck, lol.
The flipper people are likely worried.
Tough angle to play given the gumment taxes and road insurance overhead.
Silly greedy meatheads are born every minute.

"A Bunch" as in how many ... 10, 20, our 10,000 VINS seems like very very few are for sale by percentage. It's just like all the FUD out there ... 10K trucks on the road but 1 breaks in a car wash and they whole truck is now worthless and needs a redesign... don't believe or promote the FUD!

Hey guys. I recently noticed there are hundreds of CT’s for sale. Facebook groups, CarGurus, AutoTrader, etc. Are people just choosing to ignore the resale clause since Tesla has not really pursued anyone publicly?

Just interesting to see so many knowingly break contractual terms and roll the dice. Curious what everyone’s thoughts are.

Pic for attention. She looked so good today after the rain, lol.

Not worried. People trying to flip for 2x. Cybertruck is getting to the point everyone has seen them. People can wait the the lower trims.

They are not selling either. Lots of them keep dropping in price. It doesn’t bother me though I went in fully expecting a stiff devaluation. I love the truck too much to care.
The last line is me. Well said. I don’t give a damn what others are doing or feeling. I am having way too much fun driving the CT. Wife said we need butter. I drove 50 miles to go pick some up, avoiding easily 500 stores along the route. 🤣

If you know, you know. If you don’t, you mock and criticize.

These people are no better than people who short the stock. They bet against Tesla not being able to manufacture even 4000 vehicles a month let them deal with it.

Just spoke with a Tesla Service rep. They are already actively pursuing their "no sale within the year or else pay a $50K penalty" clause. Sellers beware.

With news of this coming out, I would expect a lower conversion rate on foundation series as it makes literally no sense for flippers to try and do their thing because the $50,000 penalty is greater than the approximately $40,000 profit potential

I pity the buyer. What if Tesla doesn't recognize your purchase as a legal transaction. Perhaps no warranty, no OTA? It's not worth the risk IMO.

Lawyer here opined thst the non-resell clause is unenforceable.

I have only 32 units of commercial law but I tend to agree. In capitalism that restraint of commerce. Tesla made profit from selling their product. Why would they prevent you from recovering your money and/or making some profit by reselling it?
Nope. The contractual clause that all buyers have agreed to is enforceable, there is plenty of previous history informing us of that, it's just a matter of if and when Tesla decides to set an example.

People who deny that are simply trying to gin up controversy where none should exist. It's pretty basic contract law. Don't make contractual obligations you don't keep and you won't have a problem. Break the contract and you are at the mercy of hoping the court takes sympathy on you. Hint: Courts are legally obligated to uphold the law, not be sympathetic to pleadings trying to position this as a "restraint of trade" issue. Legally, that is a very different thing.

‘the convenience of dealers and better service’

I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time, thanks.
hehe ok, I get it. I guess was referencing my latest dealer experience. BMW, South Austin, scheduled easily just a few days out, gave me a brand new loaner off the lot, kept me up to date throughout day proactive, sent videos from the service technician (this was new), and only took a few days for a pretty big recall item (battery valve replacement on PHEV X50E).

Seemed really seamless and they were not overwhelmed at all.
