Tesla announces the best friend-referral offer ever

Tesla drivers with the gift of the gab can earn themselves a free Model X motor if they manage to convince ten friends to jump on board with Elon Musk’s electric car bandwagon.

The newly announced friend-referral initiative will allow the Tesla owner to get $1,000 off a car, services or Tesla accessories every time a friend buys a new car too.

The first person to reach the golden number of ten referrals will get a completely free limited edition Founder Series Model X with all of the options.

The model isn’t even available to the public, but anyone who racks up ten referrals will be able to buy one of those vehicles too. So, in terms of Telsa cool points the stakes are about as high as they could be.

Those only making it half way there will still get $1,000 for every one of referrals, but will also be invited to the grand opening of Tesla’s gigafactory in Reno, Neveda.

Of course, the scheme sounds enticing, but it’ll only be within reach of a very exclusive club.

First of all you’re going to have to own a Tesla – no small investment – and secondly, you’re going to need a host of wealthy friends. Good luck.
