Just wanted to bump this for anyone still looking. Tesla just dropped CPO prices by a LOT. I was checking their site pretty much every day while I was shopping and a reasonable mile 2013 85kwh was generally high 50's, low 60's. If you were willing to deal with 50kish miles you could dip into the lower 50's.
In the past few days they've really dropped prices though. Maybe they're trying to dump inventory to meet end of year sales goals but it seems like if you were on the fence, this is a great time to buy. There's currently a 2013 P85 with 20,000 miles on it for $51,000 and a few very nicely equipped 85's with low miles for $50,000 - $52,000. Right now it would appear that 55k will get you the pick of the litter on 2013 85's.
Is there any negotiating on the CPOs or is it the same as with new models? Sticker and that's it.I just bought (this morning) an S85 with pano, sound studio, tech and air suspension with 32k miles for $52,000. Tesla has a green P85 with 23k miles and all the same options (minus sound studio) for $52,000. Mid-50s will get you a nice S85 if you're patient.
Don't settle for the 60 if that's not what you want. As the prices of these cars goes down the price differential between the 60kwh and 85kwh cars is going to shrink and 60s aren't going to be an easy sell.
Same as the new ones... mostly... No negotiation on price, but SOME stores are willing to do minor negotiation on features (eg. Some will let you change from 19s to 21s or vice versa, sometimes with the appropriate credit if you go 21->19) Other stores won't even consider it and all cars will be exactly "as-is"Is there any negotiating on the CPOs or is it the same as with new models?

I have been considering purchasing in the 60k range for a few weeks now. BUT, my thinking is that I will hold out and see how the X deliveries go over the next 1-2 months. I may be very wrong, but my brain tells me that when the X's start being delivered in volume that people 'trading up' from the S will be trading in and so there should be more used vehicle on the market and maybe prices will reflect this change.
Not only do I hope i'm right, I also hope I can refrain from jumping the gun!
I'm thinking of buying a used model S and I have a couple of questions:
1. What's the best model for my money? (Circa 50-60k)
2. When's the best time to buy? I hear there will be a lot of Model S's on the market come April 2016.
