      Other than cocaine, hookers and illegal gun sales I see no quick way out of this

      You’d think someone credit worthy enough to purchase a car that expensive would understand how to save and have a contingency plan.

      Ways out are:
      1- repo and destroy credit and be liable for the difference between auction value and repo fees against the payoff.
      2- sell it to the insurance company
      3- continue making payments by selling ones body to sex fiends
      4- liquidate investments, sell it, and cover the payoff

      Good luck anonymous Facebook marketplace idiot.

      Well I thought that Teslas were an appreciating asset?
      Jokes aside, that sounds like worse depreciation than a V12 S class

      Yeah, I can see the appeal of leasing an expensive car like that. $53k would have likely covered the entire lease period on this car.

      Those extended warranties are expensive

      I tried building one and topped out at $127,490.

      I just built one and only got to $115. Let's say $125 after taxes and fees. Long ways from $173.

      Then again, they're quick to bring up adding negative equity to a trade. Maybe $173 out the door included negative equity from a 2018 G30 or something.

      I swear I read this before. I can't remember if it was here not, but it was long enough ago that there should be an update by now.

      Tesla drastically reduced the price in 2018. Before it was possible to spec then that high.

      Agreed. I believe it was here.

      I believe in your ability to sleuth to find out the update

      Might be Canadian dollars, a P100D with Ludricous lists for 167k, according to teh internetz..

      EDIT - whoops, that was Model X. Model S with Ludicrous is now 132k after a price drop, but that means a 2018 could hit that’s figure before the discount. This would have made his timing even dumber, as the 2019 version of his car would have been roughly 30k cheaper.

      If you can't afford a couple months payments if you lose your job, maybe it is too expensive? Or maybe you should save some money before you finance things for $2400 a month? If he was making enough to afford that in the first place he probably has skills in demand enough to find a new job pretty soon you would think.

      I found a few conversations, but they all started and ended a month ago. They were all very similar to what we'll end up discussing here.

      Surely the owner has had to make another payment by now. Either they are still trying to figure it out or is making a $1800 payment to drive a seven year old Altima.

      Hopefully it "accidentally" caught on fire, he had gap insurance, and insurance bailed him out.

      Seriously though, this guy sounds like someone living in a Mc Mansion and way above their means.

      Good idea, but most GAPs only cover 150% of claimed value. Seems like he would still be out a good amount of cash he probably doesnt have.

      This is exactly the reason I don't have an early 911 instead of a vintage Bug. I can't imagine putting myself in that kind of situation.
