    For a non-perfoamnce model (even for a performance model) that is a big asking price.

    And its not even "new". Someone drove 1600 miles on it already. If you're gonna sell at a premium markup, at least have the decency to let it sit as investment and not touch/drive it.

    How could someone only drive it 1,600 miles then ditch it? Wish them next of luck but think it will probably sell for no more than $90k.

    The owner loves the car, and testing the market. Wasn't planning on selling, that's why the high amount of miles in such a short amount of time.

    Oh, one of those deals. Perhaps then the title of this thread should be: Model S #1355 Not Really For Sale, But Just Thought I'd See If Someone Wants To Give Me A Super Nice Chunk Of Change So I Can Take A Profit And Then Reserve Myself Another Model S (Because I Love This Car Just That Much) And Have It Partially Paid For.

    They love the car but are testing the market....good luck. This would have worked better with one of the Signatures but maybe they'll get lucky and find a buyer.

    Tesla's really pumping them out now. I'd be shocked if he got anywhere near that price for a used MS. Certainly nobody on this site would be interested.

    Or...I'd like to upgrade my standard Model S for a Performance and I'm willing to wait for it if you're willing to pay a lot extra for my standard.

    Good luck. It's certainly worth the try.

    For a non-performance 85kWh, nobody in their right mind is going to pay a $40k premium when lead times are down to 3-4 months. Plus they wouldn't be getting the tax credit either.

    I feel like putting my Roadster up on the market after reading this.... I really love it, don't want to sell it, but if you have $300,000 you may be able to slide it out of my hands ;)

    Especially when a performance model with less miles can be had for less...

    Model S Used Car still a used car

    Anyway you look at it it's still a used car which means no federal tax credit and value deprecation as soon as it hits the street like any other car. I don't think the selling price is going to fly but good luck. I see quite a few of the roadsters selling for far less than what they were costing new just a year or two ago. I'm sure the Model S will be no exception.

    Interesting the price is now down to $119K. I guess he really does want to sell it.

    It's still way too much to ever think it would sell.

    That's because someone else had listed a P85 at $119,900 so he had to come down. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TESLA-MODEL-S-PERFORMANCE-85kWh-Loaded-Car-Year-Available-You-Now-/111003903215?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item19d85924ef#ht_836wt_1165

    There is also a 60kWh just listed at $92,500 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Tesla-Model-S-Actual-Car-No-Reserve-/290852122137?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item43b8232e19#ht_534wt_1165
    He doesn't even have the car yet either 'I will be taking the delivery of this car in Chicago next week.' lol

    Even on that one, it's still a $15k premium since the buyer won't be able to claim tax credit.

    I also just noticed in the design studio, they are now listing the tesla personal delivery and prep fees up front. ;)
