Elon said in the latest Bloomberg interview many owners sell 2-3 Teslas, after people see yours or maybe even before, they place their own orders.
Are you doing your share?
I ordered mine because a Roadster owner told me about the S a few years ago, and I know he had "sold" at least another S and one X.
I have "sold" my dad one. So I am "underperforming".
how many have you "sold"?

I'm getting mine Thursday (whoohoo!) and plan on having a Tesla party soon with another friend of mine who sold me...

I have sold two... one to my father and one to my father in-law! I don't even own one, but I love the company and product so I promote all I can!
Gen III is on my radar!

I sold 2. And indirectly a 3rd. A friend of mine who I sold on the idea but isn't ready to buy yet sold one to a friend of his. And convinced that friend to buy the stock too!

Along with several other forum members, I have been showing my car at a few events where we were trying
to sell raffle tickets to benefit a local high school PTSA. I suspect we have sold a couple of cars at each of these events.

The car sells itself. I just provide introductions. So far one introduction has resulted in a happy long term relationship with a couple I know (delivered a few weeks ago).

Think I'm up to 3. Someone else just asked me for "review" - so maybe a 4th
7. Peter February 26, 2013
I have sold 6 to friends and colleagues in the last 5 months

I've sold 8 S's and 1 X. Proud to do my part. :-)
8. nickjhowe | February 26, 2013
Only one X so for :-(

I'm not sure I've sold any yet (I get mine in April), but at least 10 people I work with, all of who can afford a Model S, have said "Wow! Congrats!!" in open appreciation. I'm sure I'll be giving plenty of test drives in a few weeks :-)

My brother sold one, thanks Bro!

I know I've sold one. Possibly more at the autoshow but hard to know for sure.
It is impressive that Tesla has developed a following is such a short time. Many buy the car and the stock, probably of equal value. If they like the car, more than likely will tend to hold to the stock. Should Tesla made any kind of profit in Q1, shorts will have a hard time covering. We got to be approaching 50% of the available float being short.
I'm not a Tesla owner but I do drive a Volt. I have sold one "for sure", may attract one more sale next month and also participate vigorously in online forums regarding EVs and have added value in helping attract far more EV sales than I could know. This is only the beginning of the EV movement. TSLA is a small part of it - but hopefully a growing American company success. What I despise is the continued feeding of the Japanese and European companies selling their goods here and people flocking to Priuses to "save money" and "be green". Let's grow these American companies and support local monetary flow and put the screws to the OPEC nations by not using their product. Part of the great "North American Energy Independence by " movement.
