As Tesla eclipses $2000 per share and a nearly $400 billion fully diluted market cap, the obligatory jokes about the company being a “cult stock” will likely echo louder than they ever have.
Those trying to defend the company as not being a “cult” have their work cut out for them – especially with the unveiling of “Tesla Dating”, a dating app that’s exclusively for Tesla
The app is currently “in the works” and hasn’t launched yet, according to Business Insider. Its setup is similar to other dating apps, like Tinder, except that everyone on the app is a verified Tesla owner.
The app’s creator, Ajitpal Grewal, said he got the idea for it “after realizing Tesla owners only wanted to talk about one thing: how much they love their Teslas.”
He told Business Insider: “It became a big part of their identity, and they shared a lot of the same values, like wanting to reduce their impact on the environment, stanning Elon Musk, or appreciating high tech. Suddenly it hit me, these people would be perfect for each other.”
The verification process seems rock solid. Grewal said he will verify that people actually own Teslas by “asking users to submit a picture of themselves inside their Tesla.”
The app remains in “early stages” of development, but for those Tesla cultists already used to ordering products that don’t exist – and may never exist – there’s a website set up to take reservations.
“I believe your car tells a lot about you as a person,” Grewal concluded. It sure does, Ajitpal. It sure does.
