    I heard from someone random (so consider an unconfirmed rumor) that employees do now have some sort of discount program.

    As far as I know, this is relatively new. I think before the only perk was sometimes being able to become the buyer of a CPO type trade in getting the car at the trade in price (which was generally a very good deal on a used car.) Then Tesla didn't have to spend time trying resell it, so seemed like a win/win.

    Tesla employees are now getting great lease deals on CPOs. I've heard in the $400/month range.

    Damn that is great. They should do that for those guys - they work their asses off! Frankly the employee of the month at each SC should get a a month free!
