I dawned on me last night that a ton of investors here are saying that they hope to use the profits from the sale of their Tesla stock to actually buy one. What would happen if Tesla came up with some sort of program that allowed those people to sell their stocks directly to Tesla in return for a car. It would prevent shares from being sold on the open market at worst and at best, it could be used as reserves on Tesla's balance sheet to offset the resale guarantee or help offset the bonds that I imagine will be converted. Another idea is to give preferential treatment in lines for reservations on new models, etc. to long term investors. I know it is all about cashflow right now, but at the same time, I just keep thinking of that old electric razor commercial (I think) where the spokesperson said that he liked the product so much he bought the company. Why not do something using product as a minor incentive to continue long term investing?
