I agree with you. I have a house built in the 1950's and it's wiring works just fine. As long as rodents and termites haven't been gnawing at the insulation, the wiring should be fine. If the outlets show any sign of damage though, then they should be replaced as a precaution.
But back to your original question. The problem is that battery degradation is time-based as well. So even if you can find a 2013 with 11-12 bars remaining, the battery will still degrade over the years. Will it self-degrade below 50miles of range? I don't think I've seen anyone claim one way or the other.
So I think you need to also state how many years of service is this car to provide?
