    I can't stand waiting for the S85D to become CPO!!!

    That is when the moon and the sun lines up financially to make owning the S85D a reality. So now I'm lurking on the CPO consolidator website, try to convince myself I'd be happy with the less range, etc... of the 70D but I know those last few miles will probably be the difference between making it to a charger or calling AAA.

    So thanks for reading me rant and who else is out there in my boat waiting for the S85D to hit the CPO market?

    I was. But I decided to go with new, mostly because I wanted dual drive also. If S85 with autopilot is enough for you, check inventory. They have some seriously good deals right now. 85D - you'll need to wait about a year for decent deals on that.
    70D on da way! OOoOoooooo!!

    You'll likely get your wish when the Model X ships in numbers.... Likely next year.

    That's one of the things I'm banking on.

    Once X production volume ramps up there will be even more S trade ins to choose from which should further driver down used S prices.

    the X isn't quite as sexy as I was hoping, but I hope that some people buy the X to replace their P85D, which will be my next purchase then CPO of course...

    I went through my first Minneapolis winter in my RWD 85 on X-ice snow tires. Granted our winter was less snowy than usual, but I was very pleased with how the car performed. If you want the D for winter weather I would strongly consider an RWD with quality snow tires. You could probably save around $20k, have the car in a week, and have a larger frunk as well as some protection from depreciation.

    I've had a Wrangler, a Tacoma 4x4, and a few FWD VW's and Hondas. I'd say only the Tacoma 4x4 was meaningfully better. My girlfriend has a Prius which was on brand new all-seasons and the Tesla was for sure better in snow. Food for thought...you'll be happy either way.

    Exactly my thoughts, the X is not even half as sexy as S. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so probably some folks will say the reverse.
    X will end up putting some S's on the used market lots for sure. But also remember, some tax benefits (especially state specific) may go away next year.
    I looked at the depreciations we have now, features we have in the new car - and decided CPO was not for me.
    I then started looking at inventories, and it came down to this - wait 8 months for 2-3K discount, and not get exactly what I want.
    So I decided, wtf, yolo, bought new. It is a big purchase for me, coming to almost 90K when all is said and done. Should I be spending that much on a car?
    I am still not sure to be honest. I'd be happy with a Prius C. I just don't want to spew out hydrocarbons in our air anymore, and most of all I don't want to support the oil economy and all the nastiness they bring to this world.
    God has given me enough that I can afford to spend on this, it may not be a sensible financial purchase, but I'll get some karma credits. So I went ahead with it.

    oh and plus its a nice car.
