I'm interested in a 40KWH Model S. Is anyone toying with the idea of selling their MS?
Whenever someone posts a " wtb a 40" thread I always think what they mean is "I want a 60 but don't want to pay for it". Not that they are cheap, but rather they want a S for 10K less than a comparable 60 would be selling for if they plan to use it for commuting. Realistically the 40 models I see for sale seem to be advertised for 60 prices in most cases so it might be easier to find a fairly priced 60.
There is one on sale on eBay right now in Illinois.
That's too of us. Sadly, most 40's that have gone for sale are being offered at 60's prices.
Up to $40K, but with several days to go before the auction ends.
I was looking a 40's but the prices are too high. Im guessing demand at the lower price point brings more potential buyers. But also the 40's I see have a fair amounts of options.
EDIT: After getting my 60 I don't think a 40 would do it for me, but your not locked to a 40 like us 60's & 85's, one call and 10k later you have a 60
I think the 40s will be the most collectible. I think they'll produce fewer 40s than they do Sigs.
Disagree. 40's are just 60's with a software limitation. Is a 63 split window with 2 spark plug wires removed worth more than one that has all 8 cylinders firing?
Any of the 40's that Tesla buys back will be upgraded (for free) to a 60 and than Tesla will pocket a nice profit.
The vin is different, so they may be worth a bit more, but most likely not anywhere near a P85.
I can't see it being worth 60 money unless its had the 60 switch turned on. Then again, people are crazy.
Here's another 40 for sale
I meant in the future, when they are antiques.
Rarity is one aspect, but desirability is quite another. When the two interplay favorably, then you have true value and thus demand.
Since less than 500 40kWh Vins were every produced, it will likely be the rarest and most valuable. That's how car collecting works.
There were more Signature than 40.
More 60's than Signatures.
More P85+ than 60s.
More P85 than P85+
More 85 than P85
2012 Model Year will be the rarest (less than 2500 produced that year).
2013 produced 22K
2014 will likely produce 35K - 40K
I don't think the 40s will command a collectors value. The difference between 500 and 1,200 Sigs really isn't that much. I would think Sig 10 would be worth more than VIN 18,000 or so that is a 40 kWh 20 years from now.
I agree that my 40 will likely never be a collector vehicle; however, at the current selling prices, it does have me wondering whether I could sell it and buy a new 60 for minimal difference. It may be a way to upgrade at a fraction of the cost. The downside is that most of the options I have are now quite a bit more expensive than when I bought them.
