    Just ran across this, I don't think they know what they have:

    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/cto/4801933737.html

    Looks like a 2011 Roadster Sport, 2.5, Exec leather, hard top, with 1000 miles! for $82K. If I had extra money around, I would go grab it. So someone please buy it before I'm tempted. Just read their description - two motors, 150 mile range. :)

    Sure they know exactly what they have: the rare optional second electric motor in their Roadster. That explains the extra range!

    Price doesn't seem unusually low.

    For a 2.5 Sport, with only 1000 miles, it seems a bit low - I would think closer to $90K. There is a green CPO on the Tesla website for $120K, though it has carbon fiber in and out and a warranty. But maybe that is about $40K worth actually. But it only has one motor and that unnecessary extra 100 miles or range.

    My guess is that the ad was a scam.

    I had seen that roadster parked in front of a big mansion in downtown Palo Alto for a long time.
    I suspect it had been someone who has houses all over the place, and just wasn't here enough to drive it much.
    Suspect it was a legit listing, but got removed because someone bought it.

    Got a response from the closed ad.

    Hello,The VIN number on the vehicle is 5YJRE1A30B1001223. It is important to note that the vehicle is sale pending and if anything changes I will be more than happy to keep you notified.


    Best Regards,
    Greg

    The message I posted that was shown at the craigslist URL for that Roadster ad is not what would be shown for a sold item, as far as I know.

    I think that may show when the original poster cancels their listing.

    I agree that is a really good price for a Roadster Sport. Of course you'd want to know the Ideal/Range Mode miles and CAC:)

    Wow, the price on that 1.5 with a hardtop and 17K miles is just $60K. Seems like a good deal.

    Interesting to see so many Roadsters on the market. My guess is a lot of owners are moving on to a P85D.

    60k for the roadster is about right. Mine is silver, same mileage, with 2.5 bumper, I'd prob be willing to part with it for 60k.

    Hello,
    My name is Rudy and I am the proud owner of this Roadster. I think it was a great deal, not only does the car only have 1000 miles but because the car sat so long with very little driving the owner put a brand new battery in the car last month.

    Congrats! I guess the previous owner bricked the car so that's why it only had 1000 miles ;) Make sure you leave it plugged in if you ever store it or don't drive it in a long while.
    Welcome to the joys of the roadster world!
