Funny story - I have neighbor who bought a model S last year, and about a week ago I saw had an X in the driveway. My wife told me he won it for having the most sales at his work (or that's what I heard her say) but finally caught up with him today to chat. It turns out he won it for having the most model S referrals in NA - 96 of them. So he has a free founders edition X with the dual motor! Bloody hell, time for a test drive! Oh yeah, he also got to go to the unveiling, and put in an order for a model 3 too. I guess I'll be seeing a model 3 sooner than I thought. lol
Yea for the referrals, typically it meant $1k for the referrer and $1k to the referee - in Virginia their state laws couldn't allow the referrer to keep the $1k so your buddy and others in VA used that to get a lot of referrals as the referee got $2k off instead of $1k. More than you all wanted to know probably but cool to know the lead referrer for NA - a free loaded X is a sweet prize.

Their factory is the old Toyota/GM Nummi facility that was used to build Corolla and Chevy Nova/Prizm cars and hatchbacks.
Confess I had one of the Chevy Nova's. Typical Toyota reliability.

Proving that even with the best teacher, GM couldn't learn.
