    VIN 959 is a 2.0 Sport in Radiant Red. Exterior Carbon Accents, Executive Beige, Silver Forged Wheels, and used to be a CPO car. Unfortunately, I did not grab a picture.

    Thanks, but that is out of the EU/APAC production from the UK factory. I was trying to find all the North American bound Roadsters that were 'assembled' in California.


    By the way, is this your Roadster? :

    TEG, do you by chance have, or is there any easy way to generate a list of totaled/salvaged roadsters?

    This could be useful to be sure these don't end up on the market again, and if they
    do the buyer is aware. Title should declare but we have seen some strange things such as the one
    roadster that came up on the board a few months ago (auctioned as salvaged previously but then came
    on market clear). Also, it would be great to track how many are left...

    Maybe this is already listed on the forum somewhere and I missed it, just wondering..

    Thanks for all you do!

    I haven't made an attempt to keep track of salvage status like that. The US has a database, but I found that VINs can drop off the list after some time (~7 years?)
    So some cars which were totaled long ago can show up "clean" again. I think with an older car ( > 7 years) you start needing to do inspections rather than counting on the history to tell you enough.

    Are you collecting photos of each car for your data set? If so, I can provide pictures of 693.

    I always enjoy more photos of Roadsters. Yes, I try to keep as many as I can for posterity.

    Yeah car is awesome but have limited garage space. Testing out market since if price that high could mean large profit. One of my cars will have to go when the 3 comes - itll be whichever one I can make the most money on. If all else fails I'll keep it as my autocross car :)

    Yep, I know. A couple of people I know who repair Roadsters have been watching that.
