Huge Tesla nerd here, but messed up and somehow my reservation was not processed by Tesla on the unveiling night. I didn't figure that out for months, so my reservation slot is 432000!

If anyone has a slot in the first, say, 50,000 for a Tri-Motor version, I would love to talk with you about working something out. I live in Atlanta, but I'd go anywhere to pick it up. Considering the reservation slot cannot be transferred (as far as I can tell that is), this would mean someone would have to complete the purchase AND then sell the vehicle to me. Yes, that is painful, and yes, I'm willing to pay for that pain.... and for my screwup on making my reservation successfully.

While not likely, if someone wanted my 432,000 vehicle spot in return, then naturally, that is fine.

Please DM preferably.

There is always another way...

Assuming there is a person willing to give up a position, (maybe they just got wowed by the fake Hummer reveal), one could potentially do this:

  1. Find someone willing to part with their position.
  2. Instead of reselling the CT, have them change the contact info on their Tesla account. They probably won’t do this if they have more than one order in the same account.
  3. They then “give” you the credentials to their account.
  4. You then change the credentials on the account to something private for yourself.
  5. When Tesla contacts “them” to finalize the deal, it’s you being contacted so you finalize with your info and delivery location.

Now this assumes that Tesla is not reading this and doing checks for name changes etc. But people have valid name changes for a variety of reasons so I doubt they are checking for this.

If that is too risky, there is another way.

  1. You make a new LLC (or if you already have one use that).
  2. The person taking possession of the vehicle takes possession as a business and uses the details of your LLC.
  3. At this point your business owns the vehicle so you can sell the LLC to anyone you want and the vehicle is automagically transferred also.
But hey, I’m not a lawyer and non of the above is legal or financial advice.

If you go through with this, I am not responsible for anything good or bad that comes from it. Including acts of god, karmic recompense, or jealous mobs.

AMAZING reply, FutureBoy! Thank you so much, that is really a much better way... potentially. I'll clearly have to do further research!

Your order numbers is just a sequential number, starting at about 112744100 (the number that reservations began). So subtract that from your number for your (approximate) place in line. Keeping in mind the rollout will be regional, so your position in line is only good for your rollout region.

its not exact but expected to be pretty close. your at about 32000

Thats cool. Website suggests March 2022 delivery. And 9000ish spot because I'm tri motor. Fingers crossed. This post has me tempted. How much do you think my spot is worth 🤔 😆

i think when the model 3 or y 1st came out people were selling them on ebay for like 5-10% more than purchase price, but this was probably the 1st 500-1000 cars.

i wonder what your spot is worth too, probably not much honestly maybe 300$ is my guess

People were selling the Corvette C8 for $50k mark up. And still a 10k to 20k markup. I would say this is a more anticipated vehicle and will take years before inventory can meet demand.

Also only about 90k model Ys were pre-ordered.

Newton or anyone else with a low number single who wants to help out poor ☹ TimetoEscape. This might 😁 work for you (single dudes). Change your order to a tri (and add the FSD if Time guy wants it), then you will have a low position (first to be built) tri cybertruck. Now comes the best :sneaky: part for single guy. You agree on the swap plus $10,000 so single guy can have a free upgrade to a dually (y) after down sizing Time guys tri! P.S. If anyone is interested I have a very nice parcel of land just west of Miami for sale, you just have to drain the swamp and relocate the 🐊🐊 alligators.

You beat me to it, my neighbor recently said he paid a guy $15K over the list to get his Vet sooner when we were talking about the reservation list for my CT. $$ to burn I guess.

if i wasnt financing for the base CT, I would get the tri and try to sell it. But I dont have the means to put up 80k$ with no guarantee of getting more back asap.
