If I remember reading an investor conference call transcript correctly (I am not an investor) the company anticipates the average model 3 transaction price to be about $43,000 once all options are available.
I am seeing S's NOT holding anywhere near good value.
Could you link to some? I know a number of people who would like a bargain S.
What I’m seeing for the used Model Ss in my market is about 50% value retention at five years of age, which is unusually high in its market segment. If a 2012 Leaf held its value similarly it would be going for $13,250 on the used market. Of course the Leaf isn’t and I just bought a four year old example with 36k miles on it for eight grand.
