    Must be a good car or just a really aggressive bid war... already up to $27,250. I see it going easily above $30k and then costing $35k with all the fees and then shipping.

    Not that hot of a deal considering there is no warranty on just an expensive car nor will insurance companies cover collision insurance on it.

    Good luck getting any salvaged Model 3 at that price. The parts are worth FAR more than that. Your comment is laughable. Whether or not this salvage is worth $20K depends on too many factors like the condition of the drive unit, battery, and other electronics but the thought that it would sell at $5,000 is absurd.

    Looks like it's at $31k now. You can get a used Model S for just a little bit more...

    Was at $35k just before it gets sold. Is there any way to find the auction price?
