    I'm considering switching to a Model 3 possibly. Wanted to get a feeler on any possible interest in this car and what kind of offers I'd get before pulling trigger on selling the car. Why am I considering a Model 3? It's more about downsizing. Just like how I have no use for a Model X, I'm starting to see that I'm not really using the space of a Model S fully at all. So no point in paying for something I'm not utilizing to its full extent.

    Why is it a unicorn?

    - The 90D was discontinued in early summer. Tesla in the fall released a limited number of new inventory 90D cars out to the public. I managed to grab one of them. Came direct from factory to my Service Center, so it was never actually used in a Tesla Showroom or as a Test Drive Vehicle. I intercepted that shipment. So I'm the only person who has owned this car.

    - This car also has AP2.5, New Drive Unit (this was introduced in July on new cars for those who don't know) and the New Back Seats (introduced in August on new cars).You won't find this on any other 90D car (unless of course someone else is selling their 2017 September built 90D).

    Overall this is a rare car.


    Specs:
    Solid Black Paint Exterior
    Black Multi-Pattern Seats
    Dark Ash Wood Decor
    EAP Activated
    AWD
    All Glass Roof
    Smart Air Suspension
    Standard 19" Silver Slipstreams (2 rims have some rash, that is something I would take care of absolutely prior to selling)
    Warranty still in tact of course. Both Limited and Battery/Drivetrain.
    90% Charge ~ 263
    100% Charge ~292


    ~20K miles
    -Overall 9/10 condition (couple of small rock nicks ON the front portion of the clear bra right underneath the frunk, NOT ON the paint itself).
    -People keep commenting on it smelling new or at least people thinking I just bought the car recently. That is how well I have been taking care of the car.
    - Non Smoker/Garage Kept/No pets

    NO PUP (bioweapon, back heated seats, etc) or Child Rear Facing Seats. FSD is NOT activated on this car.

    Free Supercharging does NOT transfer over to new owner.

    Extras:
    Windows Tinted (40%)
    XPEL Ultimate Clear Bra on entire car.

    Any questions, please feel free to ask. I also have the sticker as well. Pics incoming soon.

    Did you get a trade-in offer from Tesla?

    A basic 100d with EAP is 92.5k after federal rebates. Price seems high. GLWS.

    Basic 100D maybe so, but this is fully loaded. I have a 90D also I'm thinking of putting up to that is fully loaded and I'm thinking the of the same price.

    As far as I can tell a basic 100d has exactly the same features as your car. Maybe I am missing something .

    100D also has a much nicer battery pack. High degradation on the 90s has made them the red headed step child.

    That is a very good point. I did not. Does one just go to the service center or make an appointment?

    It seems like the 100D has been reduced in price. I swear at one point it was at least $100K or maybe it’s the X I’m thinking. Regardless, you do have a good point. I think I’m going to go to Tesla to get a trade in offer and then work from that number. Would be best.

    I agree your price is high (in no jerk kind of way). With the current incentives its very close to a 100D and more than 75D. Both 100 and 75 batteries are believed to be more superior to the 90. However there is a buyer for every car, just got to hit that selling price sweet spot

    These 90Ds were such great deals when Tesla re-started them off the line - especially since Tesla discounted them $7,500 right off the bat. If I recall correctly, they were priced around $95K with PUP (so netting out to around $87K after federal tax credit and $1K referral credit), $90K without PUP (so netting out to around $82K after federal tax credit and $1K referral credit), and $87K without PUP and with multipattern seats (so netting out to around $79K after federal tax credit and $1K referral credit). It looks like yours falls into the $79K net range? With 20K miles, I'd expect the Tesla trade in price to be much lower than you might expect - and nowhere near $85K. You'll likely have much better success getting a higher price via a private party sale.

    I was just suggesting as a frame of reference to get a value. To get a trade-in value they can give you an estimate quite easily - usually over the phone, I believe. You should just be able to call into the main line and they will assist with taking your information and getting back to you with a value. Let us know what you find out, and share the experience... I’m curious. It will certainly be lower than what you expect and almost always is... but somewhere in between generally reveals the true market private party value.

    Curious, did you ever get a trade in offer, and if so, how much?

    I didn’t actually. Though I have an idea of what trade might be.

    Also, if any Mods see this, can you delete this thread? I’m not pursuing the idea of selling the car anymore.
