    Hello! I've been a Tesla fan since the Roadster was announced. I finally have the cash ready to spend, and I'm going to buy a used Tesla Model S within the next week or two.


    I plan to get my Tesla wrapped, so I don't care about the color. I prefer the Tesla turbine rims, but I'll take what I can get. I do want the panoramic roof and the tech package, but the other features aren't deal breakers for me.


    I've seen 85s in great condition go for as low as $70k through eBay, Craigslist, and Autotrader.


    I'm ready to move quickly, but I'm not in a rush, so I can wait for a good deal. Any help finding a car will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    I hope you are going to be really patient or take a car with an accident history and/or high mileage if you expect to get an 85 for 70k

    I ended up buying a used 2013 85kWh w/ tech package, pano, nav, and paint armor for $72.5k. I'm happy.

    I also want to buy a Tesla 85 or P85

    My goal is identical to Ryan's. Looking for a used 85 or P85. My only real requirement is leather seats. Panoramic roof is a good plus but not an absolute requirement. I'm in Minneapolis/St. Paul MN area so the upper Midwest is easiest.


    Willing to move immediately but also not in a hurry.

    Ryan any tips on how you identified yours?

    Figure this the place to ask - What are the odds of finding "P" versions w/o active suspension? IOW, a straight coil/shock P85/P85+? It looks like it has to be deleted from the "+" version. I had a Tesla rep tell me its about "50/50" whether the Performance cars come through inventory with Active, or not. I no longer think this is true, and am not sure hanging out for non-active inventory is wise.

    I'd honestly be up in the air over P85/Active, or S85/coil. Big price gap to be somewhat indifferent, I know.

    WTB another P85 (live in virginia and don't need AWD) - I already own a Dec 2013 production P85 loaded and want the similiar one for my wife - (HID headlights - believe this was standard after AUG 2013 with tech, would like the SubZero Package, Ultra Sound, Tech, Parking Sensors, dual chargers- 20 KW, Air suspension & sunroof) I am willing to pay ~$72Kish for a P85. Only consider tan leather interior, exterior color i can be flexible on. 19 inch rims preferred, Would like the red brake calibers - but not a deal killer...

    Don't need the following; Jump seats, 21 inch rims, P85+ or black anything (exterior or interior)...
