    I'm thinking it's time to sell my 2013 60. Value isn't going up and I really want Auto pilot. I'm thinking of waiting for version 4 to come out and just get rid of it while the value is still somewhat high. anyone else going through this?

    Yeah Id do it. There's still not a lot of used inventory available from Tesla but once the model X service issues slow down I predict we'll see another blowout sale like last year.

    This low inventory situation has led to some delusional pricing in the private market but if you price it to sell you'll never get more than now, especially with the summer car market.

    Value isn't going up? Tesla or not, it's a three year old car.

    I'd do it if I can buy another Tesla in the same transaction.

    Otherwise if you sell it and wait a while, you'll have to pay full sales tax on the new model.

    At least that's how it works in WA. Not sure about CA.

    On the slightly bright side a new S 60 is slightly lower cost with more features than the original 60.

    I'd say the value of the used 60s will drop lower than they are now soon.
