Buying a used luxury car can be a pricey proposition, especially an early EV like the Tesla Model S. But that didn't stop someone from taking home this 2013 Model S P85 with 269,221 miles on the odometer.

Purchased at auction for just $7,800, the Model S runs and drives, but the air conditioning doesn't work. Despite racking up over 260,000 miles, the electric tailgate is still functional, as are all four windows, the sunroof, the instrument cluster, and the touchscreen.

Interestingly, the driver's display shows 133 miles of range on roughly half a battery. This version of the Model had an 85.0-kilowatt-hour pack, which was rated by EPA back in the day at 265 miles. While there's no documentation of the battery being replaced, it's hard to believe there's virtually no degradation after a decade of use.

We previously wrote about a Model S P85 that went through three battery packs and 13 motors after covering 1,181,268 miles (1,901,067 kilometers). How much would it cost to replace the battery packs? J.D. Power, Insurify, and Reccurent Auto say you could be looking at spending as much as $20,000 or more after factoring in labor.

This one is a simple P85 model with a single-motor, rear-wheel drive, and an output of 373 hp and 325 lb-ft. There are no apparent red flags when the car is out on the road – the air suspension works as advertised, the acceleration is swift, and there are no weird noises. So unless there are some hidden faults, this Model S might have been one heck of a deal.
