There will certainly be people who will sell the tesla 2020 roadster a few months after it is released. So would it be better to buy a slightly used tesla 2020 roadster than to put in the deposit for $50,000 now (it is now April 27, 2018) ? The benefits of buying the slightly used one include the following: 1. You save some money since it is a used car 2. You probably get the car sooner than the people who just put in the deposit for this month in April. You are already about 5 months behind in the line. The drawback includes: 1. It is used 2. There likely will be some defects that super early adopters will encounter with the car I already put in my $50,000 for the new roadster. However, I only placed the deposit 2 weeks ago so I am really behind. I will probably encounter many Tesla 2020 roadsters on the road before I get mine........if the Model 3 is any indication.
