Less than 30 days hence, the first 2012 Tesla Model S sedans will be delivered to paying customers.

Now, one Model S buyer who holds a low reservation number for the all-electric luxury car is using it as a lure to sell a million-dollar home in an upscale Illinois suburb.

Not only has the home, originally listed for $1.5 million, been recently discounted to $1,149,000, but the seller will throw in "a reservation number in the three hundreds out of six thousand people."

Assuming the reservation-number transfer is properly executed and legal, that will likely ensure that the home buyer can take delivery of a 2012 Tesla Model S this year.

The company says it plans to build about 5,000 of the cars by the end of 2012.

Logically, the seller has called the website touting the combined house-and-car sale GetAFreeTesla.com, which includes a link to the full realtor listing.

The stone-clad 6,750-square-foot home was built in 2001, and is located in the tony suburb of Inverness, about 30 miles northwest of Chicago.

The 2012 Tesla Model S is a five- to seven-passenger all-electric luxury sedan first announced in 2009.

It can be ordered with three different capacities for its lithium-ion battery pack, giving range options that the company cites at 160, 230, and 300 miles.

EPA range estimates have not yet been released for the car.

Tesla is building the Model S at a former Toyota-GM assembly plant in Fremont, California, south of its Palo Alto headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley.

As for the house, the potentially desperate owner notes that, "All reasonable offers are considered."

  1. About two years ago there was a house for sale a couple miles from where I live and the owner had a two or three year old Porsche 911 turbo in the driveway with a sign "Free: comes with the house" on it. This was after the house was on the market for about five months already so I guess they decided to sweeten the pot. It did sell about two months later.
    John: You and I even drove past the house when you were test driving my ActiveE - it was near the place we shot the short video while you were driving :)

  2. A home building company did the same thing to sell town houses in my local area, there were ten town houses and each one came with a new Ford Mustang in the garage.
