    @Roadster This roadster along with these exact same pics have been floating the net for years, I believe this to be a scam, if you contact the seller, he has a copy of the title. Ask him for updated pics and see what you get. This one has been listed on Autotrader and eBay. I tried to buy it once, but it did not pass my scam test. Buyer be warned....

    My car came up for sale 3 more times over the next six months after purchase. I reported all of them as scams.

    Agreed. To my knowledge, that exact car actually sold back in 2015. It just keeps resurfacing...

    Okay. I saw this one this morning, and either I’m crazy...or it has a charge port on BOTH sides?!

    And here I thought I’d seen everything.

    I did notice on CarGurus that it reports an accident. Could that have something to do with the dual charge ports? o_O

    Whatever you do, DON'T drive it! The CDC has identified a very debilitating disease called Roadster Fever. You catch it when you first drive one. It's not deadly but victims are reporting an inability to sleep, difficulty working or executing basic tasks, and excessive daydreaming while mumbling about instant regen. The only cure appears to be getting a Roadster and driving it at least a few days a week.

    I had seen pictures of that car in listing before suggesting it was 5YJRE1A30B1001206

    2011 TESLA Roadster 2.5 Sport 8,500 Miles Pristine Condition

    Old thread about highly suspicious use of pictures of that Roadster:
    Buyer beware : suspicious Roadster listing on eBay right now

    Also, for what it is worth, I tracked down the house in the photos...

    That is one of my superpowers... Looking at things in the background and guessing where I might find something in Street View.
    I did a 'virtual drive' around Santa Monica neighborhoods until I found it. It is a thrill when I connect dots like that.

    I tried to figure out who lived there in 2015... But it is a rental house ($12K/mo), and current occupants weren't there back then.

    So this guy got back to me this morning via CraigsList email. His ad says it has a new battery, but in his email he says it's currently AT Tesla getting a new battery. Hmmm....very fishy. I'll text this guy and see what he says...and report back to ya'll.
