Everyone is talking about where they are in the line to reserve a Tesla CT. But, like, what's the point? There is a rumor that the "millions" of bookings are probably exaggerated as hell. I mean, who hasn't heard of people making two or even three reservations on the day of a new product's release?
Here's the twist that no one is talking about: when the CT comes out, Tesla might send an email to all those $100 ticket babes. And this isn't a casual "Hey, how's it going?" — they'll ask for full details on your dream CT and a big down payment. Gasp!
Will first come, first served apply? Maybe the first 25,000 or 50,000 people to sign up for Tesla's DMs will get their rides before anyone else. But if Tesla says, "Hey, you've got 48 hours to drop $7,000," a lot of those millions might just disappear. So, even if you missed the $100 ticket party, if you have the cash you could be going shotgun on the CT train sooner than you think.
What's the big deal? What if you wanted to book, say, 10 cars? (Because, really, who hasn't?) Will Tesla let you buy one and then give you money back for the others? Or will they put you on "read" until they figure out what to do with everyone else? Ugh, I can't wait!
If I had to say, I'd say Tesla will make a lot of these every 6 to 12 months. And people with more than one ticket will probably have to follow the "one at a time" rule. I mean, they wouldn't want to disappoint their longtime fans who have been waiting for this day.
