I have heard of some folks selling their poistion in the waiting que. For a few bucks - buyers can advance toward the front of the line and be more sure to capture the $7500 rebate - and get the car sooner. I saw some Craiglist offers for $5000 to release their position. Although some are scam artists -some surley are folks who cannot make use of their priority position and could be persuaded to bow out.
Is there a legitimate path to sell ones position into the reservation market?

Just want to get some feedback if someone has done something similar but didn't want to create a new thread for it.

My friend and I both reserved on 3/31. Him in CA, me in TX. He has his invite y'day and is wanting to defer for right now, however I would like to get one immediately.

Can he use his invite and go through with the reservation with my information, and make a TX delivery ( hoping that the TX holdup items do not become a showstopper ) ?

And maybe whenever lady luck shines on the TX reservation invites, l can do the reverse if in case he has made a decision at that point in time?

Risks? Setting out any flags?... Would greatly appreciate advice if someone has done this.

Texas is different than the rest of the world. I expect you would have problems. Technically you can on transfer to a close family member. Some bend this rule but I would not try that with the extra steps required in the Texas process.

Agastya I am here in Texas and will pick up my car next week. When I received my invite to configure it looked like I could put any person's name/address that I wanted in the online form for the registration/title. I want my car so I put my own name/address for registration/title and of course the $2500 configuration fee went against my credit card. I paid for my car in full by wire and later when Tesla called to set up a delivery date they asked in what name I wanted to title the car. This question surprised me but once again I gave them my name and address. I assume on the basis of the configuration form and that they asked about titling that I could have changed the registration/title to someone else at either point in the process. Maybe this gives you some insight into the process. Hope this is of some help.
