    That's 201 of range left. Odo reads only 41 miles. Crashed it right after getting off the truck? Next gen rear seats too.

    Is a P85D too much power for some?

    For any amount of horsepower, there exists someone that it is too much for.
    ... the P85D has too much power for many.

    Some items to consider
    - battery pack may have survived..
    - tires look great
    - seats are virtually new (new performance seats)
    - oath parts to be salvaged from rear motor to wipers...

    This was my first thought as well. Too bad I don't have all your skill and expertise.

    I pass through VA on I-95 quite a bit. If you got it I'd come give you a hand. :)

    Maybe I need to look at salvage cars for the power folding mirrors, auto close charge port, and next gen seats! Are parking sensors (if they survived on a salvage car) be transferable to another car? I presume the whole bumper assembly would have to transfer over. That one may be difficult.

    That's the sound of all our insurance policies going up $10.

    It almost looks like this car fell off of the truck it was being transported on...

    Exactly my first thought. 41 miles sound like just a bit over factory testing miles.

    It would seem possible, especially since (thankfully) there's no sign of blood on the light-colored seats. How are air bags set to perform when a car is empty and off?

    If this was a GM vehicle, the airbags wouldn't work when the car is "off".

    The badge on the car :wink:

    Whoever typed that up also thought the rated miles was the odometer...
