    How is that possible? Especially if they aren't fixing the vehicles prior to sale?

    If that were the case they need to fire whoever is working out the original lease numbers. In other words, that is not what is happening.

    Offering leases with high residuals makes for attractive lease offers, helping them push sales numbers and move units. Pulling this lever, however, defers that revenue hit until lease end, when they end up eating that depreciation.

    Teslas don't lease well at all. They are definitely making money on the lease returns and there is plenty of room for them to go lower on the pricing.

    Very unlikely. It won't have an overnight effect, and with the amount of CPOs that will flood the market + availability of M3 + release of new EAP features next month, the prices will go down.

    Someone should find the residuals on all the sub $999 lease deals from a few years ago. That would be interesting analysis.

    HA!...................not.

    Model 3 and Model S's are two different cars, they will be priced the same and only standard 85's will lose value. P85D's, P90D's and X's will hold their value.

    I'd rather have a bunch of scratches that could be masked with a full application of Autoflex than something like this that obviously needs body work - but I will say; at some point, the price will drop low enough to justify a purchase for someone. Mechanically, it's still a hell of a car.

    You know what they say about a fool and his money...

    I bet a lot of people just pull the trigger without seeing pics.

    It could be under deposit, but there's a chance they haven't yet seen pictures, or they might refuse delivery.

    It may have just been pulled by Tesla, if so it will reemerge again in another week or so, it's been relisted 3 times in the last 2 months!!

    Yikes! They should replace that business card on the photos with one that reads "Quality you can trust" :p

    They should leave the quotations marks in :D

    Does that car not have any body panels that are not damaged? Looks like the car drove into a hail storm while fleeing marauders...

    Absolutely! The only upgrade that would be worth the cost or hassle would be to 130 or whatever capacity they come up with over 100. Even then they are going to be cell and pack constrained for the next 2-4 years to meet demand for vehicles and energy storage that I don;t think they will have much excess capacity for battery upgrades.

    A third party will likely offer a battery upgrade option before Tesla but that would of course not come with any warranty and no way will I trust a third party battery pack.

    But here's an example of something I would be too scared to consider...

    Tesla Model S (facelift) battery upgrade 60, 60D, 75, 75D -> 90, 90D | eBay
