I was thinking this over. Referrals are nothing but a disguised way of lowering the price of Model S. Tesla gets $2k lesser for each referral, but they still have the cost of stores, employees, etc. etc. Anyone buying a Tesla today can find a random referral code by a simple google search. Effectively speaking, everyone is paying $1k less, or $2k less if you are in VA. To be precise, they get $1k lesser, and $1k as deferred losses towards the future, so it doesn't affect their Q3 results as much, but is effectively borrowed money from the future to the tune of $10 million per quarter. Additionally, due to the introduction of ModelX, and lower production numbers, it is pretty much a foregone conclusion that Q3 will suck, and Q4 profitability is also highly questionable. Thoughts?
