I Purchased a Tesla for $120,000 at Auction and Received a 50% Discount Due to it Being Marked “DEAD”

Have you ever heard of a $120,000 Tesla P90D being sold at a used car auction for just $10,100? Well, that’s exactly what happened in this intriguing blog story. The Tesla was sitting in the junk section of the auction with a bit of writing on the window that devalued it by 50%. Despite its dead state, the author won the bid and got the car for a steal.

Upon closer inspection, it was discovered that the car just needed a charge to turn back on. With some cleaning and a ceramic coating, the Tesla started looking brand new. The author then took the car to a Tesla service center for a high voltage battery fuse replacement, which was done efficiently through the Tesla app.

The author also DIYed the replacement of the lower control arms, ensuring the Tesla was in top shape. With all the repairs and upgrades done, the author now has a fully sorted P90D for around $1,000. The blog also discusses the benefits of buying a used EV with a tax credit, making it a cost-effective option for those looking to own a Tesla.

Overall, this blog story is a fascinating journey of turning a seemingly worthless Tesla into a gem through smart bidding, DIY repairs, and taking advantage of tax credits. It’s a testament to the potential savings and rewards of buying and refurbishing used electric vehicles.



  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
