Why are P85D's "cheap" now?

Kind of hurts. I bought mine in April for a lot more with less options. I guess I got in under the old CPO program but I rather save about 12k. But I will say I've loved every minute of owning it, so there is that.
In other threads there are lots of people complaining about current CPO process. Body damage, stains, poor customer support. Did you got 4 year warranty? Suspect big difference in what you got, versus what people are getting today.

Some more, some less. Just look at Wranger, Tacoma or Subaru outback prices.

Of course.

Although, that said, I for one am not so surprised that Teslas are much more near the higher end in that regard - they are at the awesome intersection of the crushing depreciation of automobiles and the quick lifecycle of emerging technology.

Starting to see P85D's in the mid to upper 50's. That seems like a ton of car for the money vs a model 3 long range.

Is this just model S valuations returning to reality or is there something wrong with these cars vs a non-P car?

No air suspension, no cold weather package, no premium package, possibly beat to hell.

A good deal if you don’t care about any of those things.

I just bought a P85D a couple weeks ago for 66k and I think I got a very reasonable deal. Ludicrous mode. Carbon fiber trim. Air suspension. Executive rear seats. Panoramic roof. 21" wheels. Premium sound. Tech package with AP1. Cold weather package. 38k miles. Looks mint inside and out. One rock chip on hood. No other nits. (I think dual chargers is the only option it didn't have)
 
The S has the slowest depreciation rate out of car in the segment...So it's essentially worth more than the class. Iv'e seen some Model S (such as this one) going for WAYY more than they are worth. This one is 11k above market going for $79,900 I could care less that is only has 25k miles on it.o_O 2015 Used Tesla Model S ONE OWNER AWD LOCAL LOADED P85D COMPARE TO ANY NICEST at Platinum Wholesale Auto Inc.

I think there's a P3D effect that's contributing to P85D depreciation in particular. The P3D provides near identical acceleration performance but in a smaller car that's more agile and had the latest tech (AP 2.5) and eligible for the $7500 rebate. Some folks who don't need the larger car shopping in the P85D segment are opting for the P3D.
