    If you don't mind my asking, why are you selling?

    Wrong....I haven't been able to sell my roadster and my wife won't let me keep both. I would much prefer to sell my roadster, which I have listed in a different post. If I sell that, I'm most certainly keeping the S.

    That is why I did not purchase the roadster when it came out. Not my wife but I did not want to spend big twice. I would spend big twice for two bigger Tesla's though. If someone makes money selling the car I have no issue with that BUT if you received it and drove it, I feel it would be much, much harder to sell. It is absolutely fantastic!

    You could sell your wife.

    I feel your quandary, just substitute 'right brain' for 'wife'. Or should it be 'left brain'. :confused:

    Perhaps you already thought of that, but doesn't Tesla take Roadsters for trade-in? I think that's been done already.

    Tesla will buy your car. It's just a matter of how much...

    Will you take an offer of exactly what you paid for it if I come and get it?

    That is true Telsa will take the car back, unfortunately the trade in value is ~ $20,000 below what I owe after making payments the last 19 months, a very salty number, hence, I'm trying to recoup more on the secondary market for the Roadster if possible.

    There is a fellow, Alex I think looking for a Model S. He'll buy it for $130,000 so you could make a quick buck.

    No, I appreciate the offer but it would be much less headache to let Tesla defer my delivery, which they will do, and give me time to sell my Roadster. I will only sell for a profit so I can pay down my roadster some and get back in line for a Model S. Getting the S is my ultimate goal, the Roadster isn't practical for my family unfortunately.

    I appreciate the thought but I contacted him and he only wants a performance model. Good idea though, he was offering a very fair price.

    If Tesla has notified you that your car is ready for delivery next week, you only have 30 days to accept it or lose your deposit. As a Roadster owner they might give you a bit of leeway though. Hope it works out one way or another.
