Tesla launched the latest version of its referral program today and through the new program, you can help Electrek get a new Tesla Model S P100D for our blog. We are raising the stakes so that beyond the $1,000 discount offered by Tesla when using our referral code, you will get a chance to win a new exclusive set of Arachnid wheels.

We won a set of new 21″ custom Arachnid wheels in a previous referral program. Tesla claims that the new forged aluminum wheels offer “improved performance and are not available for purchase.” We estimate that due to its exclusivity to the referral program, the set of wheels could be worth as much as $10,000.

If we get to 20 referrals first in North America, we will give the set of wheels randomly to one of the 20 buyers who used our referral code (the code is Seth Weintraub’s, the owner of Electrek and of a 2013 Model S 60, but the new vehicle would be used for the site) – meaning that by using our code, you get one chance out of 20 to win the set of Arachnid wheels.

The wheels are supposedly shipping soon so having them in time for the end of the referral program shouldn’t be a problem:

Additionally and to make sure everyone gets something (not only the person who wins the wheels), everyone using our code will get an exclusive Electrek hoodie currently only available to our staff:electrek-hoodie

If you like our content, using our referral code would be a great way to encourage us since having access to Tesla’s latest technology, a P100D with the new Autopilot hardware, would enable us to improve our coverage with more hands-on experience with the latest features. If you don’t plan on buying a new Model S or X yourself, you can also tell your friends to follow Electrek and to use our code if they want to purchase a new Tesla.

For any question about the vehicles or the referral program, feel free to reach out to me (fred@9to5mac.com) or Seth (seth@9to5mac.com). Also make sure to reach out to us if you use our code since while we can verify if someone ordered or took delivery using our code, we don’t have access to contact information, which is essential for the drawing of the set of wheels and the delivery of the hoodies.

In summary, if you are planning to buy a new Model S or X (or if you know someone planning to), you can help Electrek win a Tesla Model S P100D, get a $1,000 discount on your purchase, a free Electrek hoodie, and a decent chance to win a set of wheels worth ~$10,000 by simply using our referral code.
