So I was thinking about this, and wanted to find out if anyone else has done an out-of-state pickup. The scenario is this - let's assume Q3 hits the 200k mark, and so Q4 has the last of the full credits. Let's assume that the estimated delivery time for the vehicle I want is late 2018, which is Q4. Let's assume it's getting really close to end of December. I've configured, etc..., and now I'm just waiting on the final delivery. I live in Washington state. If Telsa tells me there is no way they can ship it to my state for a Dec 31st delivery, but I can come pick it up in say Fremont by Dec 31, is this an easy process? Will I end up having to pay the California sales tax to purchase the car there, and then when registering it in Washington, pay the additional sales tax? What is the delivery date dependent on? Is it when I register the car in my state, or based on some bill of sale from Tesla? (Might be a nice road trip to fly to Fremont, pick it up, and drive back...) Can I just do all the paperwork in Washington, and then go down there and just pick it up? Can they just take all my money and have all the paperwork filed on Dec 31 but actually give the car to me in January in Washington? I realize that there is a risk in giving them my money first without having seen the car, but I'm just wondering if anyone knows the actual logistics when it gets really close to the end of the quarter with the full tax credit.
