    My P+ is going wholesale now and I will be without something to drive for a few months. I would be interested in buying someones interesting ICE trade in at a better number than Tesla is offering which would work out good for them and me. I would then trade the same car in three months from now when my PD comes in.

    By interesting, I'm thinking M5, M3,,,, or other fun car.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Based on your posts over the past years, I don't think you'd be interested in what I've got.

    Lots of horsepower....
    Lots of torque.....

    but, at 0-60 in 3.2..........miles, I'm not sure "fun" is the first descriptor my fleet of diesels brings to mind. On the other hand, there are very, very few BJ70s in the US - probably under ten - and some of us - like me - think they're d*mned cute, and would be a blast in Florida's back country. Same goes for the BJ40, esp. if you swap out its 3B engine for something off your back rack.

    My Cayenne Turbo sorta qualifies but the timing is off unless you are taking delivery well into 2015. Fabulous interior and acceleration.
    It is my daily driver until the Model S arrives next month.

    Well not exactly a trade-in that you requested, but I would gladly give up my finders fee knowing that this lil "grocery-getter" would be going to great home in WPB.

    This hair brained idea only works if I can intercept an ICE trade destined for Tesla in the next week or two. Given the sales tax credit thing, it would likely have to come from a state where there is no sales tax credit. If the earth, moon and stars aligned, the new Tesla owner would get more for their trade and I would have an ICE to trade in three months on my PD (so I would get the sales tax credit).

    Again, hair brained and unlikely to work but I thought it worth a try.

    Very creative thinking Lola, and a good way to utilize the system that Tesla has presented you.
    Hope it works out well.

    My brother in law has a Small Block V-8 Vega in Melbourne, FL that needs some TLC... :scared:

    Seriously, good creative thinking and good luck!

    Congratulations! The MP4 should go a long ways towards alleviating any potential Tesla withdrawal symptoms.
