I've been in the market for a Model S for a few months. I kept going back and forth from buying used or buying new. S60 vs S85 vs P85. Textile vs leather. Solid roof vs Pano...(I have never used my sunroof on any of my cars)....black vs white...coil vs air....cash or finance I was also interested in several cars for sale on here as well. Got very close to buying a S85 from the East Coast. Buying used however, you do not qualify for any tax benefits. Here in CA it is 10K (7.5K Fed +2.5K State). I had to figure this with shipping as well and every time someone was always willing to pay more than what I was willing to offer. This is the deal I got for an inventory car. I pick up next week. I hope it'll help someone who might be on the fence and also provide someone with an alternative they never considered. If you are open to colors and options and don't mind some extra mileage then buying an inventory car might be the way to go. For those that don't know: an inventory car includes showroom, demo and loaner vehicles for sale and is available immediately. The down side obviously is that you get what you get. Usually these are P85s that are well equipped. Sometimes you might find a S85. I asked for both a S85 and P85 in black or white. The options I had to have was tech, 19" rims and tires and rear seats. I didn't care about anything else although I did prefer coils over air. The S85s go fast and the ones available were hardly discounted at all since they were brand new. At most 1-2k discount. One was no discount but was available now. I found a Silver P85 with 7k miles. Fully loaded including performance leather, rear seats, twin chargers, 21"s, everything except pano roof. MSRP 109k discount 14.5k. Sale price 94.5K. Tax deductions 10K. Final 84.5K (of course I still have to pay tax and license on top of that). The beauty of buying an inventory car is that if it was manufactured before 8/13 price hike then you would get premium lighting, leather, alcantara, extended leather and fog lights as stock options and rear seats, sound for about 1k less than today. If this car is built today it will cost more than 117K but you do get new options like parking sensors which I wanted but was told it can't be retrofitted due to costs to Tesla. They were offering it in the beginning but now have discontinued. I honestly think all luxury vehicles should come with parking sensors and blind spot monitoring as standard. I was waiting to jump on this car but couldn't reserve until this week. I didn't want to take delivery this year since I want my tax benefits for next year. Sadly, this car was sold. =( So this is the car I ended up with. P85 fully loaded including pano roof, twin chargers, 21", performance leather with 3.5k miles. MSRP 110-2250 credit for coils. MSRP 108K discount 10k. Sale price 98k-10k tax benefits=88k for a P85. This is the price of a S85 new depending on options. If you get a S85 fully equipped it gets to 100k very easily. No wait, warranty starts on the day I pick up, qualify for tax benefits, discounted and about the same price for a S85. I am a happy camper although I'm trying to swap my 21" for 19" at the moment and I didn't end up with either black or white. Can't win them all. Msrp today would be 119,220. 21k savings + tax benefits. I have heard about someone who found a car with 16k discount and Tesla gave them credit for swapping 21" and rear seats. Overall got the car for around 25k discount without the tax benefits included. This was an insane deal. Around 7k better than mine although I'm sure this one had higher mileage. Good luck everyone if you are in the market for an inventory car. They do go quick. I hope you found this helpful. Merry Christmas.
