Upgradeable to a 70?

Whoever has been driving it, has been doing launches in it like it’s a P100D and keeping the accelerator to the floor :D

Can you even buy an extended warranty for a used Tesla from Tesla?

I'm in the process of buying a CPO 2015 S85. It has 2 years of original warranty remaining.
It will have 4 years of CPO warranty when I get it.
Can I purchase an extended warranty for a CPO for the out years?

you get either the 2yr/max 100k or 4yr/50k miles from date of purchase if you buy from tesla, no more warranty can be bought beyond this.

the only way to buy the 2/4yr extended warranty would be if you bought it from a private seller.
 
Thanks. So this chops dealer-sold Teslas out of extended warranty coverage. Ok, I get that.
But what I don't understand is Tesla's excluding CPO cars from purchasing extended warranty coverage.
Yes, we get the standard 4 year (or 2 depending). But why would they exclude us and then include private sales?
What's their business case for this?

it kind of makes sense and to clarify, you dont get the standard 4year, you get 4years/50k miles from the date/mileage you purchase the car.

some of my personal thoughts why tesla does this. from a business stand point, you dont want to be liable for the car for too long.

i guess they want to keep the warranty mileage MAX around 100k and under 8 years.(that is the most you can have excluding some cars before the new 2yr was introduced might have warranties above 100k miles)

the CPO warranty is actually pretty nice/same as if you were buying the car new. they probably dont give you extended because of what i said above.
