    How can you hold a car for a couple of days? Used car at a porsche dealer who wants $2500 NON-refundable deposit as a way to hold it. Is that the only way? Someone driving to see the car from another state so probably will be gone. I need until Friday to know if I can get it.

    More will come. And don't fall for those kinds of tactics either.

    Plus remember that a car that's been in the hands of a dealer doesn't qualify for any extended warranty transfers or add-ons. Make sure you're ready to pay for what comes after the initial warranty runs out. Wouldn't touch it.

    That's used car dealer shenanigans. Don't waste your time or money with those guys. Now that AP2 is out I expect the used market will see a lot more of the AP1 cars coming available.

    Never buy a used Tesla at an ICE dealership.
