Tesla S85 Owners expecting to Sell/Trade Soon….Be WARNED! As the owner of VIN 9649 Tesla Model S85 (NOT P85), I am getting my car advertised to sell prior to delivery of my P85D next month, and I have just discovered a MAJOR identification disaster that Tesla has inadvertently imposed upon us: Despite the clear implied separation of the 60kW, 85S kW and the P85 models on the Tesla order/sales pages of their website, it turns out that Tesla has coded the cars into ONLY 2 subdivisions: Base and P for product specification based on the actual VIN codes. This has the impact of merging all the 60kW cars with the 85S cars when ALL the internet websites are collecting and reporting “values” for the cars. This further means that all 85S cars are AVERAGED in value estimates with the $10,000 less original cars along with the less options potentially on those truly “Base” 60 kW models. YIKES ! When I click on my cars.Com sales website for my 85S, it produces a “value” report of about $25,000+ LESS than a P85 estimate produces when the original cost of the two cars similarly equipped was only about $12,000. Apparently ALL the internet sales listings use the same “two category” designation as speaking today directly to Tesla officials they say “the 85S is treated as an option” not a separate model, but the P85 is a separate model because it has so many feature differences.” OK, I understand that the P85 has hardware differences, but when YOU (Tesla) sold me (us) the 85S the sales website presented the 85S as a separate category from the 60; it was NOT a battery size option only as it was marketed/sold. The lack of a model distinction between the 60kW and 85S versions is producing low-ball valuations on EVERY marketing and listing and valuation website for the 85S. I am virtually certain this was not intended, but it IS what you have created and now that more and more of us are looking to “move up” to one or another version of the newest “D” series cars, you have put our backs against the wall in terms of getting honest and appropriate value for our initial Model S purchase. YIKES again ! Of course if you are reselling a 60kW you are all smiles ! 8 - ( Fix it….yesterday, Please!
