    I can’t possibly see how this would be a legitimate posting. It’s at least $15,000 under market price.

    No vin number but the guy didn't block out his license plate and himself is visible clearly in one picture due to the reflection of the camera so if he is trying to scam he isn't very bright

    The only thing I see really wrong is the color of the front end doesn't match the color of the rest of the car.

    It's really visible in image #10.

    Now this could be because of a front end wrap, xpel ultimate, or something else.

    I saw this car a week or so ago and it seemed way too good to be true to me.

    Here is the eBay link to the same car:
    2014 Tesla Model S P85DL | eBay

    The text from that ad and the Craigslist ad seem very familiar. My thought is if it was a legitimate posting it wouldn't last a day or two.

    Yeah the window sticker lists nothing about the dual motors. Plus the dual motor option wasn’t out until 2015 I believe.

    I was going to say it's at least $25k under market. No way it's real.

    Send a note to the CL poster with interest and see where/when you can go see/test drive the car. Their answer will reveal all.

    Dual motors were introduced with the P85D in 2014 (I own one), and second, dual motors are listed about half way down the spec sheet image on CL.


    I don't see any photos with a photo that's identifiable to an actual person. Besides, the ad is fake, the images stolen from another ad. Happens all the time.

    This is a fairly common scam where the scammer will copy legitimate ads but change the price much lower to get replies. There is an X owner here on Seattle CL who’s ad is jacked. The real price is 80K+ and the scammer has an identical ad with an asking price of 62k. Both ads are actually visible on same page. I keep flagging it but it comes back up every few days. Really sucks for the real seller.

    It's actually down to $50K, I posted it on this site and was questioned why it was fake by people on this site.

    When I emailed the poster when they first ran the ad a few weeks ago the response was, "I can't read your response on my phone please email me at this address". Total scam.

    I sent the seller or scammer a message and never heard back. There was also a car for sale somewhere in Cali where I got a reply emailing the seller directly at some sort of pilot address.

    Does anyone know what the end game is for these scammers? So they get your email address, so what? They don't have a car so they can't sell you something. It's so common it must be "working", bit I can't figure out what the scam is.

    Does it all go back to a Nigerian prince that needs me to pick up his money? :)
