    The description says #206, but then gives a VIN for #207.
    Also, the pictures don't look like they are in Florida.
    Something a little odd about this listing.

    (VIN207 shows as last registered in San Diego...)

    The interior picture is version 2.5 and the wheels are not the same in each picture. Maybe they moved to FL?

    This is weird -- who would buy an original Roadster from 2008 for $115k when there's a Roadster Sport on eBay (allegedly) just a few hours away in Sarasota that is "buy it now" for $108k and probably can be had at auction for $90k?

    Very fishy.

    The highest mountain (if you can call it that!) in Florida is Sugarloaf at a grandiose 312ft (95 meters) above sea level....the pics are not from here.:wink:

    The listing actually shows pictures of 2 different cars.

    I also noticed it did not receive a single bid.

    Back on eBay now with proper number (207, not 206) and probably better matching pictures:

    Tesla | eBay

    (Although it does still have a #206 down in the description.)

    Those are 2009 California Tags on it. Either very old pictures, or it has not been registered for awhile.

    It has a yellow sticker, so it was at least registered for 2010. (The 2009 stickers were blue, 2011 is red.)

    Yep but you put the 2010 sticker on your car in 2009! That's what i meant...... I should have been more clear. Can't get away with anything here!!

    Starting bid is a lot higher than most other 2008s I have seen on eBay.

    was relisted again for $115k. 2008 Roadster seems to be more of a collector's item than of a trader's item...
