    Model S Depreciation curve flattens when?

    Okay, so I bought a used 2015 P90D with pretty much all available options in 2017. I paid $87,000 for the car which had an original sticker price of $142,000. Bought the car with about 7k miles and now turning over to 40k miles later this week. I was toying with the idea of selling the Tesla...

    Choose my Tesla: Comparing True Cost of Ownership

    Looking for others opinions on depreciation. I see model S's now going just below the $30's. Thinking about a used and face lifted 2016 model S 75D vs a model 3 performance. Thinking about total cost of ownership over say 5 years, even with another update to the S I'm thinking it shouldn't...

    Is Tesla making their resale value obsolete?

    The family and I have been planning to buy a Tesla for the last 6 months. We plan on getting the X but the 3 is a more affordable option that we might try first. Looking at X's from 2016: the 75D batteries "were" rated at about 240 miles and the 90D at 260 miles. I read somewhere that the...

    Help on order

    hi, I’m based in the UK and I've ordered a Tesla Model 3. I was part of the reservation and ordered early May. I ordered a Long Range Version with Full Autopilot and Grey Metallic Paint. Shortly after I ordered Musk changed the options and the long range is no longer on offer, but my order...

    Suprised on model 3 depreciation

    I have been wanting to trade my 2018 rwd LR red with autopilot for the last 6 months for Performance 3. It took me submitting an online request twice, a call to service center and finally a call to corporate over a month to finally get a trade in quote. Service center said they would have...

    Only $40,600 trade-in value on my one-month-new 3 w/ 1,400 miles!

    I took delivery of my perfect blue/white MR 3 w/ EAP on Dec 14, 2018. It was built the week beforehand and it’s flawless. Monroney was $54,700. Anyone buying the exact same 3 today gets half the tax credit, but also Tesla’s $2k price cut, for a net price of $48,950 plus tax/title/license/etc...

    Model S depreciation

    I have been keeping tabs on the prices of used Model S. It has been my observation that there seems to be a disconnect in the price of used Model s and the price of a CPO model s. I have observed that as of late Tesla has been pricing their CPO cars more competitively then used car dealer and...

    Used Model S - Depreciation estimate?

    I'm looking to buy a used Tesla Model S 2014 or 2015 for about $50,000. How much would I be able to sell the car for in 3 years? Let's say the car would be 6-7 years old when I sell it, with less than 90,000 miles and in very good condition. My personal estimate is $25,000. [The reason I...

    Buying a CPO Model X

    So I want to buy a cpo model x, any battery size. However, I need autopilot and white seats. There are very few if any cpo model x vehicles on Tesla’s site. Do you think that more will pop up soon, and what kind of prices should I expect for say a 75d. -Daniel

    Time running out for Model X 2017 *massive* business-use tax deduction

    Hi everyone, As some of you are aware from previous threads here and on Forums and Reddit, because the Model X has a weight (GVWR, which is printed on a sticker on inside of frame on driver's door) of greater than 6000 lbs, it qualifies as a commercial heavy-duty vehicle, not as a passenger...

    Anyone willing to wait for a USED Model 3?

    I think one of the greatest things about the EV market is the emergence of available used EVs, which truly makes them available to almost anyone now. If you're willing to drive a use leaf or fiat, you can have one for a few thousand dollars. Used i3's are dropping to $17k, only 3-4 years after...

    Owning an M3 "for free?"

    For people who will get their cars the earliest, is it possible that I could buy the M3 (for say $45k), have it for a year, take the tax credits (-$10k in my state) and then sell it after a year for roughly the $35k total that I spent after the tax rebate? Since the tax credits will be much...
