    At least the top three better be ready to negotiate heavily if they want to sell. With S hitting the street and quite a few years away from a having a collectible premium, I think we'll see Roadsters dropping a bit more in the future...

    Tesla also has a number of Roadsters coming off of lease right now - these are being offered under a 'certified used Roadster' program, with warranty.

    Yeah, no surprise. I expected Roadster values to sag as people replace them w/ Model S plus the "lease a Roadster till your S is built" program will add a fair bit of supply. Should recover in a year or so as the market settles out.

    Was also told that many car people (even the ones who regularly buy expensive ones) rotate stock every two or three years.

    Bonnie - do you have any details about that certified Tesla / used Roadster program? If my current car lets its hamsters free before the X arrives, I'm hoping there's an option to move into the land of electric transportation ahead of the X :)
