    I don't know if you are crazy or not, but what do you mean by "...or trade for a Tesla vehicle only."?

    If you have a Tesla vehicle, you can trade it in with Tesla or with me.

    Is my English that bad?

    You want to buy a P85D or you want to buy any Tesla vehicle?

    Or you have a P85D for sale and you'd like to either buy or trade it for some other Tesla vehicle that isn't a P85D, like an S60, or a P85+, or an S85?

    A) You want to buy a P85D or you want to buy any Tesla vehicle?

    B)Or you have a P85D for sale and you'd like to either buy or trade it for some other Tesla vehicle that isn't a P85D, like an S60, or a P85+, or an S85?

    The correct answer is B.

    So, to make is simple and something everyone can understand.

    You have a P85D for sale for 116k + shipping and you are willing to entertain offers of a Tesla car to be traded for sale P85D for sale.

    Asking questions in the title under the for sale section never ends well.

    My impression is that say you just took delivery of a P85D and you are offering it for sale or are willing to trade it for a less expensive Model S and of course you will need to receive some additional money to make up the difference in value between your new P85D and the Model S you are taking in trade.

    Yes, that sounds kind of crazy.

    Why are you doing this?

    Do you have the P85D in your possession or not?

    Are you taking the Federal tax credit on the P85D? If you are, then your sale price is more than what it would cost someone to order one and take the credit themselves.

    I guess most people understand what I wrote. My English is bad, but their intelligence is better.

    Kinda sounded like one of those bad used car commercials that say "prices so low the boss says we have lost our mind! Are we crazy?!"

    The next batch of P85Ds will be available in late Feb if you place an order now. For those crazier than me, they're willing to pay more to cut down wait time.

    I remember a pal here taking a $40K hit for driving 5000 miles in a new P85+. I just wish the buyer of my P85D would feel better selling his/her car
    to me than selling it back to Tesla.

    I will claim the federal rebate, and the sale price will be a bit higher due to supply/demand curves.

    That ship sailed long ago, people don't over pay for Tesla's anymore to avoid the wait time.

    They will definitely overpay for X if there's one.

    Are you the real "Crazy Eddie"? I know was from New York and it appears you are too. Possibly just a coincidence.... But I do see some similarities.



    And one more because the holidays are here:

    I bought a tape deck and a CD player from Crazy Eddie back in college (late 80's). Those commercials were legendary (that's not Eddie in them). So were Eddie's scams: Crazy Eddie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Oh, and I'm not a CPA, but the instructions for Form 8936, "Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit" state: "The following requirements must be met to qualify for the credit ... You acquired the vehicle for use ... and not for resale", so the OP has clearly stated his intention to violate IRS regulations with this transaction. Good luck with that.

    Nitrochino. Does this mean that the car is still being built? When do you expect it to be built and shipped to NY? Are you willing to trade for a red 85 we picked up in September (has all parts for Autopilot) plus some cash?
