Tesla : Roadster CONVERTIBLE in Tesla | eBay Motors Roadster 179, which we saw for sale about three months ago, seems to have shown up again. But it is now being sold from Texas, whereas 179's original seller, Tim, was in Los Altos, California. Here is the TMC thread, which journeyed into comparisons with Porsches and several other topics. The ultimate outcome on 179 isn't indicated therein. #179 - Thunder Grey/Saddle Leather - Los Altos, CA It seems from the eBay listing that the seller grabbed the language from the original 179 listing on eBay. It is well-written - sort of. It references things that a true owner would appreciate, like being hand washed, and it is properly described as a 1.5. Here is the language: Lovingly maintained by a single owner. Excellent condition. Regularly serviced at Tesla facility by Tesla service team. Battery has clean bill of health from Tesla Techs. Only handwashed by owner never at a carwash.As one of the first 200 cars, it came with all options by default.It includes...

Battery: Excellent. Properly cared for, seldom pushed to extremes. Other: New tires (less than 500 miles) Priced for a fast sale !!! Only 42k..For more photos and details you can reach me at : [email protected] What seems fishy to me: 1) It looks like a cut and paste from the original 179 listing. There is a space before the first letter of the text. Spaces are omitted between several words. "Colormatched" "Teslainstalled" "handwashed" "carwash." The listed options look to have been from a list, but converted to a paragraph, with no commas between the listed features. 2) It says it has carpool stickers (tastefully applied). But the car is in Texas, so a seller there would have little appreciation for California carpool stickers. 3) The style of writing changes mid-listing, with the final "paragraph" in scattered prose. A space after the word "sale" and before the three exclamation points, no dollar sign before "42k," two periods after "42k," a space after "at" and before the colon... 4) Only three pictures, and those are all Tim's from the original 179 listing. I might email latimerg47 or the seller (through eBay) but I'm not in the market and I don't really feel compelled to engage someone I think is a scammer in an e-dialogue. BEWARE!
