    Just curious to know
    Did August & September 2016 sales EVER happen before and will they ever happen again?! 30K+ Discounts?

    Will there be a P100D in a year or two that's 30K OFF MSRP?!!!

    Thanks DEAL gurus

    It happened before, but not as much discounts as 2016 Q3. (~$30.000)

    It may happen again, all depends on Tesla's financials.

    The biggest discounts were from higher mileage inventory cars.

    P90Ds (and a few P85Ds) were the only cars discounted that much and not solely due to mileage. Many were brand new. My OA said they were hard to sell quickly without the huge discount, and they needed to sell them quickly. 75s were discounted mainly by the battery upgrade price from the 60. Some highly optioned 90Ds and even 60D and 75Ds had big discounts, like the 75D below.

    I think the best chance of big discounts again will be on highly optioned inventory AP1 that didn't sell during Q3 sell-off, although I think they did a pretty good job of clearing out the P90Ds. Also new inventory from people who forfeited their deposits to switch to AP2. We'll find out near end of Q4. Should be fun to watch.

    I know of a couple of folks who elected to wait for suspected end of year "deals", but I doubt they'll be as good...

    It will be interesting to see what happens to these q3 2016 2yr lease when they flood the CPO market in 2 years. There is no way I'm buying mine back at its current agreed upon value, but that's worth keeping an eye on...AP1.0, old nose for some...there should be a deal or two there somewhere.

    Oops. Deleted my post. Fortunately you guys quoted it first. In hindsight, I should have snagged a deal like Soooma. There were a lot available when I was looking. Basically $19K to get P and ludicrous.

    Yes, I have a very nice car. And it's totally irrational to spend an extra $19,000 for yours which has less range. Yet, once you have experienced the launch of a PD, well, you know.....

    The real travesty is I passed on a $100K P90D without ludicrous because I thought it was too good to be true. Only $6K more than my 90D and it had all the options I wanted.:(:(. And my trade-in was $2K higher at the time. (Beginning of August)

    Who has a crystal ball sir?!
    I also almost passed this beauty up for the fact that they added 700 miles after I was told it had 9k

    For comparison, my Dec '14 was purchased as inventory new in Apr '15 with 2800 miles. 12k discount.

    One of the few cars we picked up during the 3rd quarter blowout was a 2015 P90D $136k MSRP for $101k after discounts and referral. Decided to dump it for a newer config car and just sold it to someone for $105k.

    Lucky you.

    You bought more than 1? How many P90Ds do you need. So what cool stuff did you get for all the referrals? Pics please. Maybe post to your thread.
