    I don't think the pictures match the VIN on this listing:

    Tesla: Roadster 2.5 Sport

    And I think the pictures were taken from an old listing long ago.

    Seems extremely fishy.

    Nothing 'possible' about it. I recognize the VIN, it's not that vehicle, and I reported it to eBay.

    (Thanks to TEG for the heads up.)

    The most popular one on eBay too! (52 bids!!!)

    I've had mine listed for a while, no takers yet, same color, maybe I should get the black wheels and it'll move!

    Excellent work. I just saw this one this morning, and immediately thought "this isn't 1194...".

    The photos are from VIN 1206, which sold for $74,980 from Houston, TX, and a month later, sold on eBay in the high $80's if I recall correctly.
