    2017 Tesla Model 3 | eBay


    Hasn't even put 400 miles on it


    So unique compared to other Model 3's because Kimbal may have farted in the driver seat? I don't stink so

    While it’s anyone’s right to do what they want with their car, it certainly would’ve been nice if, in a case, like this, the winner would’ve been someone who really wanted the car.

    FWIW I think VIN 006 might be worth something someday, but I doubt it’ll fetch much (if anything) at all over market value right now. I may be completely wrong, certainly, but outside of Elon’s own VIN 001 I just don’t think enough time has passed for the earliest cars to have excess value due solely to their VIN.

    Probably comes with the older rear seats and stiff suspension.

    The relevant point is whether he's a *sitting* f.m. :)

    A lot of Tesla fans probably entered that raffle, and many of those same Tesla fans probably had a Model 3 reservation. If I had won, I would be selling it too to make room for a 3P. ;)

    I entered the contest and if I had won, I would have driven it (very rarely) for about a year and then sold it as I was already sitting on a reservation.

    Edit: Although as my wife is currently borrowing my car for the entire day, maybe I would have kept it....

    I wonder what that photo of a soccer field has to do with the Model 3?

    If he sold it for $150k, I could imagine the IRS coming by and re-figuring the value of the prize and asking for their cut. :)

    It shows it's from Boulder, Colorado (where Kimbal lives).

    Maybe I'm just cheap, okay I am cheap, but I would rather spend that extra money on the color and options I want, and maybe even get the P with free Supercharging, rather than get number 6 which was built before many of the bugs were worked out. Just saying....

    You're not the only one - he didn't get a single bid.
