So I previously never thought about buying a Model S, as I really don't want to spend $70K+ on a car. While I could afford it, I'm not in love that much with cars to justify it. What I really want is a loaded M3, which is the right size and better price point. I would foresee keeping the M3 8+ years. But I don't know if I'll squeak in under the wire for the tax credits, plus I'll be waiting 2+ years. I was thinking, why not buy a fairly bare bones S now, which also helps in my M3 waitlist status, and enjoy Tesla in the mean time? I'm a VERY low mileage driver, and located in San Diego. So I figure the resale value of a S would be fairly good. From a financial perspective, what do you guys think about getting a fairly low end P70 (likely with the auto pilot feature) and then privately sell it when my M3 comes in? Taking the tax credit into account, if I could likely only be out say $10K net then I'd do it in an instant. So ~$20K depreciation in 2 years? Or would a better equipped model have better resale value? I want to minimize depreciation loss.
