directly to customers, and not just those near the automaker’s Fremont factory. Customers in Los Angeles (and possibly other areas) are receiving emails offering to deliver cars directly to their homes and offices for free — helpful if you’d rather not take time off or plan a trip to get your new ride.

The service is billed as operating on a “first come, first serve basis.” While emails talk about the service running through the weekend, it’s poised to stay through at least the next week. Whether or not it continues beyond that isn’t certain, although
