    Posting this in the Model S section because I think it will get the most response.

    I've been lurking on TMC for a long time, am a big Tesla fan, and recently joined here because I will be making the plunge into the EV world soon. I'm also a bit of a data nerd, and have been following the EV-CPO site since the huge sales in the 3rd quarter of 2016. Now that the 4th quarter is behind us, I noticed that the CPO car count (being shown) is much higher now than it was at the end of Q3. This makes me think that there are a lot of folks who are trading their current Tesla for a newer one. Lots of speculation here and on other sites that Tesla doesn't always show a complete inventory picture, so there could be other explanations too. I've read many posts where folks compare their current car to an earlier one, so I'm trying to get a feel for how many people either currently own or have owned multiple Teslas.

    Have you owned multiple Teslas, either simultaneously or back to back?

    3 Model S's since 2013. Currently own two. I fit your profile I would sell the Classic P85+ listed below and get a fourth one if I could get a reasonable offer.

    I have a 2013 Model S and a 2016 Model X and if they made a truck I would sell my F150. Tesla makes everything else out there feel obsolete.

    Will trade the S85 in for a 100D next year.

    Feel like a Sir - Your sig says P90D. I'm assuming you've got two now - the P90D and S85?

    Did you trade in the earliest car to Tesla? That's what I'm trying to get a feel for - how many folks traded from one Tesla to another.

    Just traded in my 2012 for a new 70D AP2. My Tesla delivery rep told me that a lot of the original owners were trading in cars. I live in an area where tax is paid on the net price of the purchase so in fairness it makes sense to trade them in.

    I purchased an inventory car and it did not show up in any of my online searches. I was told that Tesla has a few depots across the country where they hold cars and then ship them to dealerships as they are ordered.

    FWIW, I found that the estimated range for my S85 and the 75D are exactly the same at a 90% charge.

    Have reservation/deposit in on Model 3...will see what it looks & drives like next year (...ever the optimist) and decide if I will get rid of 2013 S85.

    See sig below - I have 2.5 Tesla's - 2 real ones, and the MB has a Tesla drivetrain (similar to the RAV4EV I had before it).

    Just ordered a 2016 P100D to replace the 2012 P85, and have two Model 3 reservations (one will replace the MB).

    How can you stop at just buying one? I bought the Roadster after my wife took over my RAV4-EV. When the first Model S arrived, I thought I'd trade in the Roadster...but my wife made it clear the Model S was hers, so what was I going to drive? I had to keep the Roadster.

    I only have room for two cars in the garage so I had to sell the Roadster when the second Model S arrived a few months ago. Sad.

    That is a bummer - that is what lifts are for - so you don't have to let go of the Roadster.

    I have a used 2014 Tesla Model S 85 and about three months ago, I bought an inventory 2016 Tesla Model X 60D. I am on the waiting list for a Model 3. So far, I have not traded any cars in. I checked recently about trading in my 85 for a new 70D, but they gave me a very low trade in offer.

    I sold my 2013 60 in March after ordering a 90D. I still miss ole 9555 sometimes...

    I ordered my new one from the 17" screen in my old one, on the same date I had ordered my first one. How ridiculous am I, lol
