    What kind of range is the Battery getting?

    Side note: You'll never get $95k. You can buy a new one for less than that with the rebate...

    Hi, @tszu1,

    I've been toying with buying a second Model S for the wife. But I think your price is a non-starter. A few questions...

    Why are you selling?

    Why does one screenshot say do not use slacker, maps or tune-in radio?

    The picture of the dashboard screen says 32 mi on the odometer. Really?

    What part of California? Will you ship the car or does the buyer have to pick it up at your house?

    I configured the following trying to match your car:
    S85
    White paint
    Pano
    Tan leather
    Extended Napa leather trim (guess)
    Alcantara headliner (guess)
    Piano Black deco
    19" wheels
    Tech
    Air suspension
    Supercharge hardware
    Only one charger

    and came up with $87320 (after $7500 federal tax credit). I suspect you paid quite a bit less, as the extended Napa leather trim and Alcantara headliner weren't separately priced back then ($4000 now). Pano roof was $1500 (or less?) versus $2500 now. Wasn't the smart air suspension $1500 (or less?) back then versus $2250 now? So I'm thinking your car as originally configured was closer to $87320 - $5750 = $81570. I'm sure someone has a copy of a price sheet from a year ago.

    Plus the car is 10 months old, even if low mileage. No second charger.

    What'm I missing?

    Thanks,
    Alan

    The do not use sticker was on my car when delivered from the factory...I was one of the last 2012s. It looks like the car might have been sitting around some where and is tot

    Ouch, guys. Kinda harsh on tszu1.
    Market will prove or disprove the validity of the price.

    Not really... He's trying to sell a year old model for more than a new one costs. If the market proves that used ones are worth more than new ones, then we have a bigger problem... :D

    All the cars are delivered with those stickers. They are usually removed before you see it for the first time. They were still on mine when I picked it up. I asked my DS about it and he said that it's because it activates the 3G connection and costs them money. Tesla does not want the service center guys activating all the connections and streaming music all day over the 3G connection with Tesla footing the bill for it all just so they could jam to some punk rock while prepping the cars.

    @tszu1 - sorry for coming across harshly. My points and questions are meant sincerely, not argumentively, but I could have phrased them in a more constructive way.

    @SCW-Greg - thank you for your comment and causing me to re-read my post.

    @SouthJerseyJon & particularly @yobigd20 - thanks for sticker explanations.

    Alan

    This car priced today, after $7500 tax credit, would be $88,820. Back in December, it would have cost $78,150. Not counting delivery and inspection fees.

    Cars then had all the interior lighting, fog lights, alacantra headliner, etc.

    Note, you can tell this car hasn't yet driven many miles, likely all factory test miles - check the energy graph. This is the way mine looked when delivered. It's entirely possible this car may still qualify for the tax credit.

    I thought only the first titled owner was eligible for the federal tax credit.

    That is correct. Unless the car was never titled and still factory owned, it is not eligible for the tax credit.

    Yeah, my first thought, was/is there a way to sell the car (pseudo take possession, but not title), and then still provide that tax credit to the next person? Though likely not.

    Just wondered - with virtually no owner miles on it.

    It also looks like that when you do the reset button (in the old firmware?) on the history for the energy chart.

    The "32 mi" odometer is more telling. ;)

    I'm a little concerned (for the car) w/r/t the charging history. No miles in 10 months. Was it plugged in all the time (and balancing) or rarely or ...?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Additional observations:
    • Tan interior, non-perf, single charger.
    • The 17" has what looks like the "car has been prepped for owner" note with...
    • The firmware looks to be 4.4 (1.31.11) with an update (4.5?) pending. The about window shows this; also the 3G and bar graph are separate icons (which implies < 4.5, IIRC).
    • (I think) Original dash vents (not the retrofit).
    • Chrome/metallic panels next to hatch latch (discontinued in later production, IIRC).
    • Fog lamps. Briefly discontinued, and then reintroduced as an option... IIRC.
    • No frunk cargo net in the pictures.

    That's all I've got so far. :)

    I wish they'd lowered the suspension for the photos, looks a bit goofy set to high.
