    When I go to Tesla.com and search on New Inventory.

    When I go to EV-CPO, and search on ModelS, New, USA, I get zero inventory.

    When I go to teslainventory and search on ModelS Refresh, I get 4 CPO's in the results.

    However, others are able search and find inventory models, and then post the links, which I can then see.
    Model S P100D 5YJSA1E46JF254175 | Tesla
    Model S 100D 5YJSA1E29JF242844 | Tesla
    Model S 100D 5YJSA1E28JF244150 | Tesla
    Model S P100D 5YJSA1E44JF254417 | Tesla

    Why cannot I find new inventory models when I look?

    Call OA they have secret stash’s that don’t show on these sites ...over the years those sites have gotten less accurate ..also on Tesla web it’s based on ur location not nationwide

    For several months now, Tesla has listed few-to-no new/inventory cars available for sale.

    And this is what EV-CPO reflects -- cars actually listed for sale, by Tesla.

    There are other links floating around that seem to work, but have never been listed anywhere publicly for sale by Tesla. Many, most, or all of these links represent cars that haven't been built or shipped yet, and may not actually be available for sale once you click "Buy Now". Other sites find these links by hacking the Tesla website for cars never listed for sale. So once you click "buy now" and put down a deposit, don't be surprised if you receive a call from Tesla that those cars are not actually available.

    To get the best access to all of Tesla's new/inventory cars listed or not, contact a Sales Associate at a Tesla store or gallery. They have access to a much larger list of cars actually available for sale.

    Good luck!

    Tesla is likely holding off sale of the 200kth US car until July for EV tax credit reasons. So there may be an embargo on inventory movement, along with the focus on 3. Also, I'm not sure if it is relevant, but all those links have /used/ in the URL.

    I'm with this person, this is definitely the plan. If it is not then someone at Tesla is real dumb, I doubt it.

    Try this, Im not sure where this other guy gets his info, it looks impressive. See below

    You may find your Four listed above in his list.

    This is the best way. Stuff flies in all the time. They have 8 days to sell you a car and they will do it.

    Use Tesla US inventory and CPO listings - its the only one that has both used and new inventory and actually has some of both. I disagree with EV-CPO in only showing Tesla listed cars - whats the point of a 3rd party site if they only show what Tesla show now that Tesla have an improved web site?

    I think you're probably right that they've delisted all the inventory to reduce the variables in the 200k sales limit. That said they should probably add the inventory back right now and just make sure delivery doesn't happen in the next week. That way they can sell the cars starting July 1.

    After July 1 I expect inventory to appear but only briefly as the news gets out to the masses about the 200k sale being reached there will be a mad rush for buying up all the Tesla's people can get their hands on. I don't expect much inventory to be available towards Q3/Q4 as Tesla won't be able to produce S/X fast enough to satisfy the rush in demand before the credit is cut in half.

    That P90D listed is really interesting. Might be a solid lease deal

    Its been listed for a long time at that same discount. There are a lot of miles on it I recall, someone would have bought it by now if it was any good.

    I think being in Hawaii has been the big issue for most. You’re paying 5k and it’ll probably take 2-3 months to get if you are an east coast person like me. 11k miles is a lot for a “new” car but also affords a big discount and the warranty hasn’t been started so who cares really

    What it looks and feels like in HI is holding is back in that market. By the time it gets shipped and who knows what it'll look like then, moved around and banged up by so many transporters. Its not worth it.

    I think if it got there and was beat to hell you'd have a good chance of either getting it fixed or getting your transport fee back and your deposit moved over. Even as an 11K mile inventory car they know you aren't going to accept any real damage

    Talked to OA today, and they state they will not sell the HI cars to someone on the mainland, even if we provide their own transport. He claims they did it a couple times and it ended up in disaster, so they just don't do it any more. So, if anyone is vacationing any time soon it might be worth a look, if you can arrange your own transport after the fact and they let you buy it at the dealer

    Were you truly interested anyway. Just because you get a large discount has nothing to with if its a good car to own.

    Why would this car have a 5.2 0-60 as opposed to 4.2? It looks brand new and says it was added in April? Seems weird
