    Yes, I want a Model S 85, P85, P85+, 85D, or P85D. BUT, it is way too expensive. I have an '08 Prius for now. A Tesla Model S 85, P85, P85+, 85D, or P85D, with at least the Supercharge Hardware, Tech Package, Panoramic Roof, and the Interior Lighting Package, with a lower than average price is just what the doctor ordered.
    If I did get a Model S for whatever reason, I will delete this post.
    Any Model S less than $60,000 that I can finance would be great!

    I'd say there's no 'might' about it. If something actually appears to meet your requirements ($60k or under), then you might want to ask 'why???'. Why would they sell it for so little when they can get so much more with no additional effort? If the price is that low, something is off.

    Caveat Emptor.

    You will not see prices for an 85 that low until late 2015. It will happen just not for a while. And even then your Prius will be nicer, the 85's used in the price range will be VIN's under 20K and coming from an 18K VIN I can tell you that I could not wait to off load it. It felt very clunky, cheap and not well built. Not worth what I paid for it.

    Now my current P85 is a much better built car. Keep your Prius for a few more years and get a high VIN Tesla when you can afford it.

    Dude, you're changing your post, that's okay but you can't keep lowering the price. You will not find one below $60k, maybe in a 18 months, but not right now. It's not going to happen. Call Starwood or Earth Motors, both will finance and have the best prices. Or call your bank, prequalify for a loan and find one in the classifieds here or (maybe) on ebay motors.

    You may find a P60 in a 60k price range if you're lucky but that's it. Otherwise you should get the 2015 Chevy Volt and over the course of a few years the Model S may drop into your price structure.

    M6... Sorry about the smart a** comment. It just reminded me of an old rule of thumb which goes something like
    You can wish in one hand and spit in the other. Reality is based in the one that fills up first.
    I think there are a lot of people that want to buy the car at that price point and even more at $35K. I think this is the point of G3.

    I will refrain from making useless smart a** comments in the future.

    Not the case at all with me. As far as I'm concerned, any Model S is better than perfect for me. I don't care for build quality, and soft touch materials or whatever.

    You might find a base S60 with high miles for $60K, but you will not find an 85 in your price range unless it has body damage or a salvage title.
