    Hope you liked seeing your old roadster again, knowing it'll (probably) stay up north !

    Yes I'm very pleased that it didn't head south. Hope it finds a good home. And that the dealer keeps it plugged in.

    Is that a fair price for a Roadster ($85k)? That’s about US$64k.

    I'd be tempted for me here in Vancouver, but feels a little excitedly priced :)

    Looks brilliant though....

    Funny that you post this just as Fred (w/ your 2012 Model S) just discovered that it <= can now do 408 km.

    I'm really surprised that it is not selling more quickly. I would buy it in a second if I had 85k around.

    Think someone 6'5" would fit in there comfortably enough to buy it as a second car?

    It all depends on how tall your torso is. I am 5’10” and fit fine, though becUse I’m all torso and no legs I can’t see the top of the speedometer (used the touchscreen lol).

    You would have to try it. FYI there is more room under the hardtop than the softop. Apparently the car does still include the hardtop.

    Yeah it gives more accurate measurements if you drain it most of the way and then charge fully. Show the full pack range and the car resets its algorithms

    Yeah, I'm using serious restraints from going to see the car. Timing is not that good, my second child is on the way in a couple weeks only, so not the best time money wise and time wise.... The girlfriend says no, the heart says yes, the mind says maybe...

    I’d really like to see it go to a good home.

    Funny how that is. I felt the same way when I was selling my 2013 Model S. I think I did find a really good guy, very big on Tesla etc. who will give it a good home up in the Ottawa area. Loving my new X, but I still do miss my old S!

    Roadsters are so rare, especially in Canada, that it is a shame to see them leave. I had a lot of fun in the two days when Lawrence gave me their Very Orange Roadster while they were putting on my summer tires three years ago.
