@DeedWest put in a lot of work in assisting me sell my beloved Very Orange 2011 #1339 roadster. It's not just the writeup he did but numerous other things too...too many to list here; for example, he recommended a transport carrier that both I and the buyer were comfortable with; he answered the buyer's questions about the history of my car that not even I knew about; he showed the buyer his own roadsters and let him test drive one (buyer never saw one in person)...list goes on and on. My point here is if you have a roadster consider using Thomas to assist you with your sale. And yes, I did pay Thomas. And no, Thomas did not want payment. But I paid him anyway because he did a lot of f'ck'n work. Thomas' only request from me was to take great pictures representative of my car. I hired a professional car photographer; I had the car detailed. At the end buyer trusted me and Thomas. Sale went as smooth as can be thanks to Thomas' assistance.
Hello all. I am facilitating the sale of a 2011 Roadster 2.5 for a very good friend of mine, per his request. I have owned several Roadsters over 6+ years now, and I have not found a more complete and flawless spec Roadster out there. It has been meticulously maintained and upgraded in California throughout its life, featuring an active warranty on its Power Electronics Module, and a full body XPEL paint protection film - custom cut to an exact fit on every single panel with a warranty that carries over to the next buyer.

I will do my best to outline every detail I can below, which still may not do this vehicle justice. I do not apologize in advance for the novel. Additional photos below description.

This is a three-owner vehicle, and has never left the state of California. Its current owner (#3) purchased it in 2019 and has spent over $40,000 in both factory and custom upgrades to bring this Roadster to a more-than-complete "factory-plus" specification. The idea was to create a perfect Roadster that appears factory, with subtle additions that improve the quality of the drive experience. For example, the original Roadster was notorious for terrible headlights and brakes/rotors, so this owner spared no expense when it came to remedying those downfalls. It carries a clean CarFax with no accidents reported on file.

This is a chance to own a near flawless, late model example of a fully optioned Roadster with tasteful factory and custom upgrades. This is of the last 120 NA production Roadsters built, and just one of 107 produced in Very Orange of the 1,5XX produced for North America. Note that this is the only Roadster 2.5 for sale on the market currently, features a warranty on the PEM, and every option imaginable with full paint protection to boot. Similarly, there are less than 3 Roadsters actively for sale on the public market currently.

It is important to note that Roadster production numbers are dwindling as the days pass due to buybacks and accidents totaling the vehicles. There are estimated to be less than 1300 of the 1,5XX NA production Roadsters remaining.

The owner prefers the vehicle to go to a loving home, preferably next to other Tesla vehicles. Please message me directly for any further questions, additional photos, or offers on the vehicle. I am happy to help.

Thanks for looking!

Did this sell?
Hi @DeedWest and @Bunnak Did you all use an escrow service for the sale? I will be listing my Roadster in the coming weeks (family is growing - have an MX Plaid on order). My past vehicle sales were in the "bring cash" range but that won't be feasible for this. I looked at Escrow.com but they seem expensive. Any other thoughts/recommendations?
