    Model S 85 - 2013

    This car is for sale on Ebay, please vist there for more pictures: http://www.ebay.com/itm/191813868627

    Awesome Tesla Model S 85!

    I originally bought this car for my wife as a project because it was the only way we could easily afford to get her a Tesla (her favorite car). It had one owner before us where it was involved in a flood, so I used parts from a donor car (totaled in a front collision) to make it purr again! I'm an accomplished Electrical Engineer, and a perfectionist, so I put this car back together with loving care because it was for the love of my life! She's now in another Tesla I restored, a 60 in Pearl White. (which is her favorite color!) She doesn't need the range of the 85 and likes the color of the 60 better, so so this one is looking for a new home where it will be cherished as much as she did. I've been a long time Electric Vehicle fan and activist, have even built my own EVs. My day job is coming up with ways to help others enjoy their electric vehicles! (Google "Electric True Believers" to see the article the New York Times did on me 5 years ago.)

    Has a new drive unit installed by Tesla with only several thousand miles on it now. Tires were also replaced at around that time. Drives smooth and quiet, as you'd expect from a Model S. Battery is in excellent shape with reported 219 amp-hour capacity (see picture of diagnostic screen). *I am so confident in the condition of this car that I will offer the buyer a powertrain warranty for 3 months (90 days) from date of purchase. If anything prevents the car from driving, I will repair it at my cost, provided you drop off and pick-up the car at my Berkeley location. I will also be happy to assist in the future should you ever need anything for the car. (I know these cars inside and out and can diagnose them just like Tesla technicians can.) How many people selling you a used car will do this for you?!? You can also take it to your local Tesla service center for maintenance and parts. (Proof of ownership transfer required by Tesla.) Since this car was not in an accident, and has never had an airbag deploy, it is not "blacklisted". Feel free to call Tesla, the VIN is listed above.

    3G Internet access, Navigation with Google Maps, Voice Activation, Streaming Radio, Homelink, Remote Access, Keyless Entry, Latest Software (2.10.71).

    If you have children, I can re-install the original 3rd row rear-facing child seats for $500. I removed these for extra storage in the trunk because we don't have children.

    Car is located in Berkeley, CA and I welcome people to come for an inspection and test-drive. Contact me to arrange for an appointment.

    I'm also happy to talk about Teslas anytime!

    Note: I reserve the right to end this auction early, as car is listed for sale in multiple locations. As-is, where-is except for my powertrain warranty provision (details above).

    -Phil

    Does this one come pre-rooted? :wink: Seriously, this looks like an awesome deal and even though it doesn't come with Tesla's warranty I would totally consider this if I needed another Tesla given that you can pretty much repair any issue that comes up.

    Side favor: I notice this is an S85. What's the passive cooling target listed on the thermal screen with range mode off?

    It's not pre-rooted, but I will be happy to give the new owner diagnostics access if they need it. =)

    If I lived on the west coast to be closer to you in the event of issues popping up I'd jump on this one.

    Since Ingineer says it isn't blacklisted and the battery is in great shape there should be no issues with SpC.

    $25K?? Really? This is a helluva deal. But will you sell it for $25K if somebody buys it on Panjo? 'Cause the ebay bids are higher than that.

    No, it's up to $30,200 on Ebay. (It started at $25k) Clearly I'm not going to sell if for $25k, I've got more than that in it.

    Please see Ebay (link above) if you want to bid on it. There is no reserve.

    Does it still have Tesla's 8 year - unlimited mile power train warranty, or is that voided due to salvage title? Sorry if the blacklisted question already answers this but I don't know what that means.

    It means that Tesla will not touch it for any reason, you are 100% on your own.

    Are you saying they won't touch it even if I was paying for it, even though it's not blacklisted, or are you saying they won't touch it if it is blacklisted? What I want to know is if the power-train warranty is still valid or not?

    Blacklisted means that Tesla will not touch a car. This car is NOT blacklisted, so the OP says. Sorry for the confusion.

    It's not blacklisted so Tesla will service it and you can buy parts for it. Technically the warranty was voided when it was branded salvage.

    What parts did you replace in the vehicle that were damaged by flood water? Also, with the Rear facing seats, are you also going to replace the 2nd row seats that have the latch that the RFS connect to?
