For Trade: Tesla Roadster Sport - rare signed Ambassador model

trade or sale. Sport model used as an ambassador car. Sent to Detroit to appear with Elon when he was presented the automotive engineering award - 77K , black, camel, excellent battery, mechanical and cosmetic. 52 invested July2016. Full checkup from Tesla.. Quite a bit more car than the non-sport I had just before.

(For some reason photos of this car has appeared in Fraud ads. This one is real and in San Francisco. Someone recommended watermarking the photos. I will do that before adding more photos. )

so sorry! you are correct. Thank you for pointing it out.

On my phone I didn't realize there was an audience here. I meant to $50,000 or best offer.

trade idea came up because the sale of a potentially collectible is to raise money, we are also short a four seater, or a 2+2.
To make up for the loss of the fun car, a Panamera would be nice. Or a Fisker Karma.
Or an Elise plus money to help partially to purchase some other Infiniti G37 or Lexus ISF

77,280 miles

Car was sold with a deposit on the Tesla site, but he forgot to ask wife? On that site you cannot edit, so I asked the moderator to delete. I need to circle back. I just got "Error establishing a database connection"

We avoid charging in range mode. Normally charge in ideal mode to max 170, can go 215. The battery is an excellent shape. Likely better than 85% of the out of showroom range, which is affected by age, number of cycles, and how often you charge fully. Tesla went over the car last year.

It is pouring rain in San Francisco. Maybe sun on Saturday for more photos. Garage is pretty cramped.

I give up on that site! for today anyway.
I did sell my 5,000 miles orange roadster on that site however, and that was just a mention that it might be for sale (which is nice as I am not crazy about the "publicity"). I do strongly prefer this one, because it is the Sport model. I sold that one because I lost my garage in a move (or more accurately the driveway that a Tesla could navigate). As soon as that changed again I sold my 911 to save up and I had to have another Roadster, and it had to be a sport. I am in the camp that it has a lot of Lotus heritage and I have always been an Elan and Elise (and Elite) fan, even though I am 6'3. I think that when the Roadsters eventually become collectible (mainly due to EV Cars / Elon history and the rare numbers of Sport Roadsters), part of the draw will be the Lotus Elise, and I do think those will hold value and the rare models will appreciate in the future. Who knows when. It is the 12-20 year-olds who will eventually have money I guess. I would post a photo of Elon's signature but the scammers would steal it. I need to watermark it with this site name and my username, as someone suggested.

Anyway this one has both chargers, the one top, original and aftermarket radio unit, heated seats, protective film, carbon in the right places. One rubber rear wheel guard needs to be glued, one blemish in the lower horizontal valence underneath the car.

The chief differences between the base roadster and the Sport include the Sport’s new drivetrain software and a new stator in the car’s 375-volt AC induction motor with higher winding density and lower resistance, bumping the motor’s horsepower rating from 248 to 288 and the torque from 273 lb-ft to 295. In the suspension, remote-reservoir shocks offer 10 stiffness settings, and there are three positions for the anti-roll bars. Black forged wheels wear stickier rubber—Yokohama Advan A048s instead of Yokohama Advan Neova AD07s. There are also Sport badges on the rump and door sills. For all that, the Sport version adds $19,500 to the base price or $110,950 for a total of $130,450.

Losing the competition as there are two that I know of with over 100K miles. At $1 per character I have been far too wordy.
