I have seen a number of buyers of Teslas buying used because they do not, themselves, qualify for the tax rebates. Many small business owners structure their businesses so that they do not show lots of taxable income.

For them, the savings in costs, by purchasing used are considerable.

No need for everybody to structure their used purchase analysis to compare with getting the tax rebates.

Thank you, Uncle Paul.

Nice car! Love the combo of red and grey seats!

A new one configured with the same options (but AP2) runs 90k before the 10k rebates, so that is effectively 7k cheaper for a 2y/o car with AP1, 2y warranty less.. at least supercharging is transferable. :)

You make some good points. Thank you.

However, the really excellent gray leather Next Gen seats and (as you point out), the free supercharging are no longer available.

Tesla is still enhancing AP1, and I can tell you (but perhaps you know) that AP2 has a way to go before it works as well.

Also, the car was delivered in the summer of 2016, so it’s not quite two years old. It was custom built, not from inventory.

Sounds good, all the best with a fast sale!

original price=$86K
minus $10k for tax incentives=$76K
minus two year use/depreciation guesstimate $15K
the brings the price to about $61K

these are not exact of official numbers but what I use to evaluate a car before purchase. And also considering a brand new 2018 model equally optioned would cost about $75K after rebate.

I am willing to offer $62K. Pm me if your interested

I think with the latest update AP2 is just as good if not better than AP1 and there are videos of people using it on roads with no markings at all and around construction areas and heavy snow and rain. Any thoughts?

I think your assessment is fair.

Thank your for your interest. I will reply to your offer more fully shortly in a “conversation”. That’s the way to do the equivalent of PM on this Web site.

I do want to provide you with input on a few things publicly, for your benefit and for others reading this.

I upgraded the car to a 75D, which adds an additional $2K to your figure for its cost.

The car was built in August, 2016, so it’s 19 months old, not two years.

A new 75D, equivalently optioned, would cost $88K before incentives, and $78K after (using your $10K figure).

Also, keep in mind that the Federal credit of $7.5K is only available if you have a Federal income tax liability of at least $7.5K. For people (perhaps not you) who don’t have that much liability, a used Tesla in mint condition is an attractive alternative.

Finally, I calculated the actual depreciation. That and more in the “conversation”.

Thanks again!

Not to be pedantic, but just wanted to point out that when people talk about $10K in rebates, that’s not necessarily the case. Some states have no rebate program or tax credit program whatsoever. And for those that do, the amount varies. There are some states that have $5000 credits (Colorado, I believe) and I remember at least one that was only $500.

Yes, $2500 is the most common amount. But just saying that it’s not always the case. And in California (where I am) while there is a $2500 rebate, that is only available for households making less than $300k. So not everyone can take advantage of that rebate. Other states may also have various eligibility requirements that may effect people in different ways.

So while $10K may be a decent “average” figure, where people live and other circumstances will raise or lower that number.

Yes that’s true that the rebate can vary depending on your state, but $10k is still a good average to use. And in this case, the seller and I live in states where the rebate would be about $10k. And if I or the seller made more than $300k I don’t believe either of us would be negotiating over a modified 60D apose to a P100D.
