Are you kidding? I don't know jack. I'm just touching my finger to this little screen and sometimes things happen. But CXC does inspire me.

But it's absolutely the case that if you configure a less expensive version of the vehicle, the difference winds up back in your hands. Tax situation remains the same, including CXC payment to US IRS.

If I won I'd want to honor the spirit of the raffle, if not the letter. That would mean, for me, a new P70S with AWD and a few other options, and hopefully, about $30k back from Tesla. The latter would let me keep the car, by taking care of some other needs I have, like home repairs. Why doesn't Tesla offer a cloth interior, dammit?

They do, is the first selection on the left in the interior configurator. Basically standard with cloth since all the other options are cost adders.

edit: I just went into the configurator again and it looks like they removed the $1500 old generation seats, so now it is the multi-pattern cloth seat or the $2500 new generation leather seats. Apparently the Model X has some additional non leather options (fake leather) as well, but it probably won't make it into the S until they get caught up on X production.

It strikes me that your proposal is entirely in the right spirit.

Obviously, I didn't think enough about configs that didn't use all the cash. But the goal is to put someone in a Tesla, not the EXACT Tesla that I happened to like back in July. And indeed, one of the BIG pluses of all this was build-to-order, so that we could feel good that someone would get EXACTLY the car they wanted (subject to the total prize value), and not some random white Mercedes that the dealer didn't feel would sell right away so why not get a tax deduction for it.

Great! Now all I have to do is win the Grand Prize. Not the way my luck generally runs, but then look at the weather this "Winter"... ;-)

Nice article on Electrek, best version I've seen yet.

Can't figure out how to link to it. Sorry.

Just saw #1264 on TMC thread, so sales have picked up. Maybe it will sell out after all.

Someone... some lucky someone... someone from this thread or elsewhere... is gonna be spending New Year's Day locked in the Tesla Design Studio 'cuz they're gonna be configuring the S or X they win from our Carbon Pricing Awareness Raffle!!!! With fees, taxes, HPWC, electrician!!!! I am psyched!!!!

Or heck, I dunno, maybe they'll just take the $100K cash and buy 4 (5?) Leafs, one for each member of their family....! :-)
