    I should try, maybe the combined karma of all of my EV desire will let me win?

    What is your motivation for spreading the word on this auction? Awareness potentially reduces your chance of winning. Maybe the positive energy you're creating for the foundation will lure the Tesla your way.

    I wonder if there has to be a minimum number of tickets sold before the drawing is held? According to the site, as of 1:30pm MST, only 877 tickets have been sold, well below their cap of 5,000 tickets.

    I just bought a ticket. 1 in 878 chance of winning a Model S sounds pretty good to me. Besides being a good cause I'm assuming it's tax deductible, right? So win-win.

    Yes, I might be rewarded by the good deed :).

    I doubt it would make a significant difference in the next 3 hours. If someone from this forum like gigglehertz wins, I might curse.

    I can't get any combination on the Design Studio to come out to $86,670, and there is no "Tech Package" any more.

    I called them up on the day S70D was launched. They told me they had ordered and paid for the S60. Perhaps TESLA gave them the option to upgrade to S70D for some discount.

    I got $ 89,200

    Model S 70D 67,500
    Including $7,500 Federal Tax Credit
    All-Wheel Drive Included
    EXTERIOR
    Red Multi-Coat Paint 1,500
    All Glass Panoramic Roof 1,500
    19" Silver Cyclone Wheels 2,500
    INTERIOR
    Black Leather Seats 1,750
    Matte Obeche Wood Décor 750
    White Alcantara Headliner Included
    OPTIONS
    Ultra High Fidelity Sound 2,500
    Autopilot Convenience Features 2,500
    Destination and Regulatory Doc Fee 1,200
    VEHICLE PRICE AFTER TAX CREDIT 81,700
    Before the $7,500 federal tax credit, the price of this Model S is $89,200 . Tax credits either decrease your annual tax due orincrease your annual tax refund – they do not reduce your amount

    I'd feel super guilty about it. For maybe an hour or so. :tongue:

    We have similar types of charity raffles here in the SF Bay Area, and unfortunately the amounts paid for these tickets are not tax deductible.

    Seems like this one has "worse" odds than the Atlanta one (which I've done twice now and didn't win). $100/ticket max sell of 3k seems like a better "deal"...

    Thanks for posting this, @insane!

    If I win, I'll be happy to give you a test drive. :)

    Thanks, had enough of test drives. You could give away the P85+ that you already have.

    Up to 887 sold as of 20 minutes ago.

    887 x 200 is $177,400 well above the cost of the prize at $86,670. I'm sure they would hold the drawing even if only 400 tickets were sold due to legal reasons. But since they are well above the cost of the car already you shouldn't have to worry about it not happening.
