What's going on with new inventory pricing?

    Have been in the market for a new Model S, and last night I saw that the prices for new inventory Model S's had dropped by ~$8,000 (to ~$79K for a new 2018 100D with Enhanced Autopilot, etc., and the standard new inventory mileage of 50 miles). Couldn't sleep this morning, and then noticed that prices had dropped another $5,000 (to ~$74K for a car with same specs), so went ahead and ordered it.

    Anyone have any idea what's going on here?? The spec sheet for my order shows a discount of $36,000, and according to EV-CPO, had been listed for over $90K until it suddenly dropped by ~$16K this morning, along with a bunch of other cars - so it's not just this one!

    Am I missing something, or this just an amazing deal right now?

    My search on EV-CPO for New Inventory 100Ds with EAP for <$83K, which has had no results until last night, is now showing 78 matches!

    Likely catching up with new prices, finally.

    Or, there is a new version around the corner.

    Or, both.

    Or neither.

    P100D prices have not budged in the past week.
    Congrats on ordering your car!

    New inventory prices went down with the new prices an expected amount, but, then additionally dropped by ~$16K this morning. So an equivalent new inventory model is now ~$20K less than a custom order.

    Doesn't make sense...

    Most of the inventory ones are EAP, I don't think they've touched the AP capabilities of the inventory ones. Go on ev-cpo and check them out.

    Super tempting, but out of my price range. I am willing to go up to 80K for a P100D with AP2, and there are a couple with a 100% match of what I want for $98K, and AP2.5 and MCU2.

    How do you know if it's MCU2?

    "They just dropped by 35-40K last night"

    Priced one March 10 and priced identical one this morning.
    Exactly the same price.

    I guess I don't know for sure, but I think anything manufactured after March 2018 is MCU2. It is possible some of the inventory was manufactured before that though.

    Quick look at teslacpo.io shows this

    Very many at EV-CPO show graphs like this

    upload_2019-3-16_14-23-9.png

    So a bunch dropped by around 35-40K last night, but a few days ago they increased prices by about 20K. So the difference from 6 days ago to day is 20K less today.

    There are a few that were at 120K, never went up to 140K, and didn't drop to 100K. Maybe you looked at one of those.

    My comment was for Ordering a Model S New. Misread the inventory bit.
    Price didn't budge on ordering new but Inventory certainly came down.
    Occurred to me that it could mean that a refresh was imminent....but not a shred of evidence since that would confirm this.

    I noticed this, too!

    I've been in the market for a new or used Model S, and I placed an order on a used MS 75D on Thursday night. Friday evening, I was scanning through the Tesla's new inventory page, and noticed the huge price drops. I quickly got in touch with my advisor and changed my order to a MS 100D. Got a screaming deal on it, if I don't mind saying so!

    I passed on this car because I wanted a different color and config, but damn, what a value! One could knock a further $1,500 off by opting for the base wheels instead of the Sonic Carbon.

    Will they actually swap the wheels on an inventory model if you asked?

    Yes, my advisor told me that a wheel swap on new inventory is no problem at all.

    I just talked with my local advisor and he confirmed removing ludicrous will shave off $20k and also confirmed that I can downgrade the wheels to silver and save another $1500! Awesome!
