I've done factory delivery at Mercedes, BMW and Renault. We picked the car up at the factory, drove it around Europe for a few weeks and delivered it to a designated port where it was then shipped to where we live.
I'm wondering if Tesla is going to have a similar plan. The Bay Area is kind of my 2nd home, and I wouldn't mind picking up the car at Fremont, driving it around California for a few weeks and then shipping back to my real home. The biggest thing is getting a temporary license plate/registration in order to drive the car around California and avoid paying the California sales tax. Otherwise, I guess I'll have to ship it directly to my real home.
Has anyone heard if Tesla has come up with a factory delivery program?
