    For those that don't/can't wait for a 3 you can get a Model S at a really decent price if you go CPO or used. Tesla offered me $49,200 for mine on a trade and its in perfect shape, just a lot of miles. If you look at what the S offers, even slightly used, you can build a compelling story.

    You don't get the federal tax credit and loans may be different used vs new so beware those things.

    We bought our Model S new with a factory pickup, but our Roadster, on the other hand, was purchased under the Roadster CPO program... It's been and continues to be a great car, but our first night home was no picnic. Since it was CPO, Tesla resolved it and we've been happy with it since.

    As soon as the new model S design hits the road, and the design studio announces the 100kwh battery, you will see the used market drop, and the Buy new now prices / Demo models of past design will have to be lowered.
    They dumped all of the 70d demos into the buy now screen about a month ago, and the put what seemed like ALL of the 90D demos into the buy now area about two weeks ago.
    Lease turn-ins for 2013s will also be showing up soon.----are these even equipped with autopilot sensors though??? When did it come out?

    Its been impossible to find a CPO with Autopilot. The 70D's they had were inventory cars, not CPO.

    The Tesla preowned vehicles have disappeared from the website. Previously, there were large numbers of CPO (certified preowned) at Tesla dealers across the nation. I was close to purchasing a Model S P85 for a price in the mid 60s. Overnight, all of the CPOs vanished. I contacted my nearest Tesla dealer and was told the CPOs were removed from sale to be used as loaner vehicles. This is hard to believe since scores of vehicles were removed at each dealership. It makes one wonder if these CPO vehicles were impacting new car sales. With the 75D and 100D on the horizon, Tesla needs to move a number of 70D and 90D vehicles. A search for 2014-2016 preowned Tesla on Autotrader returns 137 vehicles. This seems the only remaining avenue for preowned Model S.

    Here's an article on Clean Technica on how to get CPO Teslas...

    It's a little more manual now.

    As we all know, the vast majority of Tesla preowned vehicles disappeared overnight from their website. I followed the instructions described in the article in Clean Technica to manually access the CPOs. I called Tesla and requested my local CPO rep. Tesla stated there were no CPO reps and the only available CPOs were on the website. I visited my local Tesla dealer in Cincinnati. They also were not familiar with CPO reps. Does anyone know how to find CPOs that are not listed on the website?

    You can try the third-party https://ev-cpo.com/ site maintained by HankLloydRight on TMC.

    If you do end up picking one up there, you can save $1000 on an inventory S or X by using my referral.

    Otherwise, talking to a store helps. If your local store doesn't know how to access that, find the store in your region. I believe Lyndhurst, OH (the one near Cleveland) is where all the CPOs are in your region. (I actually visited that during our trip in May last year.)
