    Looks like it is a Model S 60 with 43k miles on it. Was totally wrecked at one point, someone fixed it up nice. I bet Tesla won't activate it, and the person who bought the wreck and fixed it is taking a loss.

    Oh, you guys are toooo good. Great detective work.

    look at how smacked up the rear was (wheels weren't even facing straight). I gotta say, it cleaned up very nice to the untrained eye.

    Stuff like this you have to look out for when purchasing a salvaged Model S.

    Have a crack at this one...

    Car seems to be riding pretty high, also rear seat has been removed at one point, someone will be in for a rude awakening when they find out all the high voltage stuff is gone.

    Oh that first one is easy when you look at the last picture--a cat jumped up on the hood and scratched the paint a little, so it had to be totalled...

    @ChiGuy - Yeah, dude, that one has a little rim rash on the front right wheel. Buyer beware, going to have to replace that.

    that INOP DIGITAL DASH notice is a bit concerning, hopefully just a fuse and a reboot required.

    Damn. A couple of those cars have the CF trim I'd like. Too bad I can't get it for cheap. Would also be nice to upgrade to the higher resolution instrument cluster screen (or whatever its called).

    A few of those cars definitely look repairable. But then again what do I know.

    So wait, someone buys this, gets there and says, "wait, I didn't expect it to look like this" and then buggers off?
