The Future Was Yesterday: 2013 Tesla Model S 85

I’ve been dismissive of Teslas (and the electric car in general) not because the owners are wealthy, pompous, self-aggrandizing douchebags, but because they were foolishly expensive. And I get, the electric car is the future, and I’m not going to fight it, but I’m not going to pay more than it is worth because I need to keep up with the Joneses. Quite the opposite, I am going to wait until they are used and abused and get one for cheap, like this next thing. Or I will wait until this is salvaged a few times and get it for 1/2 this price. Not sure. Find this 2013 Tesla Model S offered for $26,000 in Huntington Beach, CA via craigslist.
