View Full Version : Front Damaged Tesla on Ebay

Discussed some in the parts thread in parts thread master about the rear bumper, but I thought it deserved its own thread.
That car was auctioned off at Copart a little while ago. The bad thing is, its not under warranty anymore because of the salvage title.
For some reason that link didn't work, so here is the one I posted before:
Here was the original auction before they pulled off the ruined bumper and cleaned up the rest of the car:
I hope the driver/passenger were OK...
I wonder if the seller has replaced the airbags, or just put the covers back on top of deployed airbag compartments?
I was highly tempted to take it on as a project car, but got the wife veto on something that can't be registered without major work...

You mentioned that you thought it might have chassis or frame damage. What was the source on that?
The before pictures do give a bit more pause for thought, though.
Just basing it on salvage title and looking closely at the pictures. There are hairline cracks in the carbon fiber pieces in front, and some of the mount points up front don't look like they are quite where they should be anymore.
Seems to have sold with "Buy it now" $46,900.00
