    I'm still shocked by these sales of cars with so few miles. Being a poor doctor, whenI buy a car I buy it to drive. I guess collectors pick these up and show them off for a few months then sell them. I drive over 1000 miles/month just in local driving, so would expect to put at least that much on an EV.

    Didn't this car sell on eBay a while ago?

    Perhaps not. The history report still says one / original owner.
    I think perhaps the owner listed it before, then had second thoughts, but is now trying again.

    The car I was thinking of was very similar, and in the same region. It sold for $95k.

    Some pictures show the car with silver wheels, others black.

    Yeah, it seems like they mixed some stock photos in on their listing.

    The one with the silver wheel has a different interior. i.e. Black

    I agree. I've had my Roadster ~15 months and am over 15,000 miles. But some people have "weekend" cars. Also those in the frozen north often have winter cars and summer cars so that tends to keep mileage down too.

    With so few miles over the course of two years+, wouldn't that suggest the batteries have not been maintained as they should? I've always worried that those who don't really *use* their EVs end up actually shortening their battery pack lives... Either in a SOC kept high side, or too low, for too long.

    Car looks gorgeous though.

    If it was left plugged in in storage mode there will be nothing wrong w/ it. And that's one nice thing about the Roadster (and hopefully Model S) - end users can pull the logs and view all of this info using tools the geniuses here on TMC have devised. You can see for the car's history how much time the car spent at high SOC, low SOC, how many times it was run down to 0, etc. So as a prospective buyer you can scan through the logs and decide if you want to adjust your offer based on usage. It's much more difficult to do this w/ an ICE.
