    One of the Tesla Advisors just sent me three HIGHLY discounted S85s. One has a $15,700 discount. One has a $19,500 discount. The last had a $22,000 discount. All three were nicely optioned. All had the Tech package plus other options. All are priced around $72,000 with the discount BEFORE the $7,500 FED tax credit and $4,000 IL rebate. I just bought one last month, or I'd jump on any one of them. Call the Chicago Grand Avenue Tesla office for more info.

    I was looking for a S85 for months, but bought a used one last month. These are the best deals I've personally seen.

    You don't even need to live in Illinois to take advantage of a good inventory deal. I bought my inventory S from Palo Alto, solely from photographs.

    I just bought an inventory 60 out of the Cincinnati store today (just became available last night). It was 18k off!!!! From what I understand, lots of heavily discounted cars became available last night, if you are looking for one, call your local store ASAP!!!

    I was at a store today and was told inventory cars are discounted $1/mile driven plus 2% for each month the car has been in service. They had a ton in the database. S85s looked to discounted from 10-20k depending on options and mileage. The 2% discount was bumped up from 1% because they don't have autopilot.

    If you don't care about autopilot or AWD there are some great deals out there. I was also told you can lease any inventory car with less than 5k miles. If the MF and residuals are the same as they use for ordered cars, which I was told they are but I'm not sure I believe this, you can lease a $95k S85 with 5k miles for $725 a month plus tax. Seems to good to be true.

    Congrats, I know you have been waiting a long time.

    I inquired about inventory P85 with tech and air. They were offering a $24k discount leaving the car at $92k before tax incentives.

    I got an inventory car 3 weeks back and I got 1% discount + $1/mile

    The total discount was $10,500 but I also got after the market twin charger for $1500.

    I wish I could have waited little longer...anyways I will definitely let my friends know about this great savings


    @ualdriver...can you post all three cars with discount so I can forward to my friends?

    This honestly will not have a real impact on the used market. These "cheap" Tesla's are a one time thing, due to the hardware changes. They will all be gone in a matter of days, and then used market will go right back to where it was before hand. When Tesla sold a bunch of CPO roadsters in the mid 50's low 60's after model s deliveries started, there was not a significant long term change in the value of a used roadster, this will be the same way.

    Agree with you but it does indicate how much more value the senors add. I would love to have one with senors but will not buy third tesla for a while.

    Lack of pano roof is a deal breaker for me, but hoping that one will show up! :)

    Not saying you are wrong but they have set the precedent now that all previous non sensor cars are worth less.
    If you truly think it won't hurt the pre sensor used value then you should buy every one of them and in 3 weeks or so sell them for a sweet profit.

    I'm not expecting to get a P85D for this kinda price. Wanna test drive the D and autopilot first before I get rid of my benz (miss my teslas a lot)
