    Pretty cool, at least to a Tesla noob like me.

    Dallas. The new one on Cedar Springs for those familiar with the area.

    cool name given to the car: Agent 00007

    would make for a decent cpo: only 20k miles, probably pampered, and without AP, ought to be <50k

    A friend of mine had this car as a loaner just a short while ago! It was really cool to see.

    Other similar CPOs are more like $60K. Far better to get a new 70D for $20K more reduced with tax breaks.

    Any Tesla is a good car, we love our early 2013, and the CPO price was a massive discount from new.
    I just need to avoid loaners with dual motor and autopilot and I'll be able to wait for the Model 3 ... ;-)

    Better yet, I would rather have a 60D for about the same price after Fed/Colorado tax breaks.

    Yup, I know what you mean. I bought a non-AP CPO thinking I'd never want AP but got an AP loaner once. It's pretty nice. If I had a divided-road commute I'd really want it.

    Hmmmm... "Founders Edition" -- aren't those the ones where they left all of the bugs and problems unfixed for "sentimental" reasons? ;)

    Just shows you that the Founder and Signature models are worth nothing in a couple of years.

    The fact that the seventh MS ever produced by Tesla, and a Founder Series at that, is a loaner makes me very sad.

    I wanted to ask how much they wanted for it but I had just gotten my S and my wife would have murdered me. Plus I probably couldn't afford it anyway.

    LOL - I had that same car a week or two ago. Had it for about 4 days. June 2012 build date per the door sticker. It has the typical really early build quality issues (gaps, trim alignment, etc.) and the wheels are all curbed up, but overall not bad. I think it also had crazy drive unit whine when you nail it. Being a loaner, I don't think it gets any love, etc. They acknowledged it probably won't get any fixes until they go to sell it.
