    Certainly one of the best condition and most fully equipped Roadsters you’ll find. Fully upgraded by Tesla (headlights, sport suspension, double DIN dash).

    If you have never experienced one of these, then please don't judge them. The instant torque will always put a smile on your face. Light weight (for a fully electric car) with decent range and great handling. Rare enough that it always attracts attention and questions.

    This one is in beautiful condition inside and out. As the next generation Roadsters keep getting delayed, these are going up in value as there are not a lot of them around.

    Exterior
    • Premium Electric Blue paint (one of the rarer colors)
    • 3M VentureShield protective wrap on most body panels subject to damage
    • Opticoat paint protection
    • Solarguard windshield
    • Headlights upgraded to Tesla HID units
    • Tesla car cover
    Tops
    • All 4 roofs that are available for the car:
    • Body colour carbon fiber hard top and carrying case
    • Visium transparent hard top (very desirable)
    • Taylor mesh top (very desirable and not available any more)
    • Standard soft-top (easy to put on and take off and stores in the trunk)
    Interior
    • Premium leather interior
    • Dash upgraded to 2.5 style
    • Interior Carbon Fiber Kit
    • Double DIN Pioneer AVIC-8201NEX with Bluetooth, GPS and backup camera
    • 6-way Focal speakers
    Wheels / Suspension
    • Upgraded to Tesla adjustable sport suspension
    • Black forged aluminum rims with Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD07 tires
    • Additional set of silver cast aluminum rims with Pirelli Sottozero II cold-weather tires
    • Carbotech AX6 brake pads
    Charging
    • “240” Tesla Motors charger
    • Universal Mobile Connector with 14-50, 6-50 and 14-30 adapters for 240 volt charging
    • Original Tesla “yellow” 120V charging cable so you can plug it in any 120V outlet to charge
    • Model S and J1772 adapters (CAN SR and JR)
    Consistently charges to 250 kms on standard range charge and driving.

    The main battery is the original one. The 12V one has just been replaced.

    Just under 62,000 kms on it. Regularly serviced at Tesla.

    Asking $77,500 US. The car is in Ontario, Canada. It can be imported and registered in the US.

    Huge price drop. The price was a bit of a trial balloon since I wasn't 100% sure I wanted to sell it. Pretty sure I do want to sell it now, so I've dropped the price to $69,000.

    If was ever to buy an EV this would be it!
    I'm just not sure I could live without the sound of a screaming engine.

    For those of you who have never had the experience of driving one of these, they are simply fantastic! Fast, nimble, fun. I often choose to drive mine over one of my other sports cars (Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche, Alfa, etc). Fun for road trips, fun for errands, fun for commuting, even fun on track days (understeer at the limit). Did I say fun?

    Thank you for the nice comments. These do seem to be underrated, but only by those that have never experienced one. A little additional info since many are not familiar with these, or any electric car.

    Tesla recommends keeping it charging whenever it is not being used. I just plug it into a normal 120V outlet and overnight it generally tops up the charge for any driving I've done. I also set it to automatically charge after 7:00 pm when the electrical rates are lowest (where I live, don't know if this is true everywhere). So it is like always having the gas tank in your car full when you take it out.

    Also (again, I don't know if this is universally true or not) there are of course preferred parking spots for electric cars, but I've also parked in ones that have free charging while you are parked. Think about it. It's like someone filling up your car with gas while you are out for dinner and not charging you for it!

    And just to add a bit more information on the technical aspects, the frame is aluminum and the body is carbon fibre.

    Feel free to ask any questions.

    Rick

    I tink they will end up more like the Tucker.

    Very cool car, in a very cool color. This is the Tesla to own.

    Is there a link to this car for those whom are not members of Ferrarichat? I would like to send to someone perhaps interested.
