    The frunk picture looks exactly like mine. I think the 85D frunk is much smaller. Yet the screen pic shows 85D. Sure sounds like a scam.

    The frunk looks right for a D, but totally a weird deal for sure. There is no way you could buy a Tesla from the company and not get it registered - it's part of the sale and required I'd say. They wouldn't keep the registration with them otherwise it would just be a MFG car etc. This seems like a scam, stolen right off factory floor/lot (hehehe), or something else odd...

    That and/or he is trying to milk the fact it isn't easy to buy in Texas, the tax would be avoided, etc. for someone that just doesn't want to wait.

    Well, it would be $53,199,300.00 in Zimbabwean Dollars so seems 147,000 doesn't look so bad ;-)

    Even in Canadian dollars a brand new one with all the options would be cheaper. Actually, that sounds a lot like the one I saw on Autotrader Canada, for $145K. I said to my best friend "Are they on glue?"

    Yeah. Smells to high heaven like a scam. Especially with that answer he gave the person who asked the question.

    My D frunk does not look like that. That's an non-D frunk.

    That's not a non d frunk. The microwave area is gone similar to the D cars. It looks like it was just maybe taken from an odd angle.

    Cross referencing the radio station that is playing, the car IS located in Houston. Given that it's Texas, tesla would provide a MSO and not register it directly. So It's possible the tax credit has not been redeemed yet. HOWEVER, even a MSO still has the buyers information assigned to it on the back, so this guy would be title jumping, which means good luck registering it upon purchase.

    This ($147,000) would be the highest price paid for ANY Tesla Model S I have ever seen.
    And it is not even the current top-of-the-line P85D.
    Of course, one could just go on-line and order the same car for ~$50K less than what the seller is asking, and still be assured that the $7,500 Federal tax rebate was valid.
    Er, the car is NOT priced competitively with ANY Tesla Model S or similar vehicles I have ever seen.


    Best of luck to the seller, hope he is successful.
    (Or at least legit.)

    The guy is super-cagey about details... it just doesn't seem like reasonable behavior.

    Is this a joke or a scam? Did you add the #1 to the beginning of the price by accident?

    The guy has never sold anything on ebay and it has been over a year since he bought anything. Would not trust this guy!

    I noticed that one too. More power to him if he gets it, but I have a hard time believing that any buyer of this sort of car wouldn't check what a new one is worth.

    It does say the car is priced competitively. Maybe be means by winning the competition for the most outrageously priced vehicle?

    I am sorry but you all are being completely and outrageously unreasonable.

    Did you not know that a used Model S is worth more than a new one? Someone went to a lot of time and effort to add those miles to the car and you are acting like that's not worth anything. It's like some people expect someone to loose money on a car sale. He's just charging you what he paid for the car and a few dollars for each quality mile driven, and possibly the sales tax paid on the car.

    If your grand grandpa managed to buy Ford Model T in 1920 and yr family still have it, it is worth way more dollars now then in 1920. So yes, cars go up in price as they age :tongue:
