Hi everyone, After following Tesla for a couple of years and obsessing over the S in the Design Studio, my wife and I made the leap into a CPO car. We both drove Land Cruisers, still do at times, but really needed and wanted to get into an EV. We are Landscape Architects and travel from San Diego to Santa Barbara from our base in Orange County, CA and were spending $500 a month on gas, plus dealing with the rising maintenance costs, since the the Land Cruisers both have over 150,000 miles on them. We looked at all the Hybrids, and ran the numbers in every way possible. What we found is that if we compared a new EV to a CPO Tesla, that it would be close. Once that was decided, we started test driving cars, and after trying a Model S, it just became how much Tesla could we get for lowest acquisition cost. Most of you know how that goes. Test drive a Tesla, then own a Tesla. I started living at the Buena Park Service Center/Sales Facility long enough for an Owner Advisor to start sending me emails about cars that had come in for certification, but not yet up on the national CPO site. Within a couple of weeks a dark blue 60 came in in the mid $40K range and it was everything we wanted, except it was a 60. I kept looking at EVTripPlanner, and figured that it could work. I decided to wait a day (which is playing roulette because the advisors can't hold anything without a deposit) since it was not on the national CPO page. That evening, I got an email that a white 85 had just come in, and that it was a few thousand more for the 85. I was there the next morning reviewing it and by the afternoon had my deposit in. We are 7 weeks into our journey and have put 1,500 miles on it - all fun! Now all I keep thinking about is a P85D. Hmmmm.
