Lightly used, almost new Cybertrucks will not be cheaper than new Cybertrucks until you can walk in and buy one off the floor. Since Tesla will manage prices gradually lower to keep demand high, that could be two years from now.

Which is amazing considering most vehicles lose ~ 25% as soon as you drive it off the lot.
See post below about the ATL CT that sold for $100k or you can see the one that sold in Phoneix for $98k which is less than a new one. That one had 580 miles on it which I would still call lightly used.

I just find it hard to believe, especially from dealers. There's absolutely no incentive for a dealer to sell a truck for $100, 000 or 98k when the rest are all 150 plus. Dealers are not in the business of letting stuff go cheap that especially hasn't been on their lot for very long. I call complete BS. Unless I see a sales receipt on that there's no effing way a dealer one got the truck for less than that and two would part with it for that little it's just not good business practice.

If it was a one-off I would be of the same opinion. But there have been enough dealer sales and auctions that have completed that have been under $110k that it seems to be more and more common. Supposedly the dealer in Phoenix got the CT as a trade-in so they were likely into it for well under 100k

I appreciate the continued discussion here!

Look, I just don't have enough information to agree or disagree with the "sub-$100k Cybertruck FS"! Where and how? It just defies economic logic here.

Here are a few things I want to say beside some of my earlier comments supporting the idea that a 'gently used CT will likely keep its value by Mid-2025":

1. Online auction sales figures maybe unreliable for various shady reasons (i.e. unethical dealer self-promotion, hidden fee/ under the table transaction, certain added terms that are not publicly announced)

2. If you are seeing any VINs that are higher than 3500, those CT were SOLD extremely recently to a point that the vehicle title might not have been issued in most cases.... and for CT that was bought with a loan, it will take at least another 2-3 weeks to get the pay-off and lien removed, I can't imaging any of those Cybertruck FS are legitimately being advertised online by a "dealer" this quick. So, dealer are pre-selling a CT without the proper ownership paperwork? That doesn't make sense, perhaps illegal.

3. Fake aution listing is a thing to cause a lower national average or sample price by certain calculated and ill-motivated people.

4. Different geographical locations may have different result, but for the NY/NJ/PA/CT/MA... northeastern region, the going rate is anywhere from $150k - $165k TODAY.

5. Tesla tells buyers in black and white contract terms that "you must sell the Cybertruck back to TESLA if you don't want to keep the vehicle within the first year; if Tesla refused to buy it back, then Tesla will provide written consent for you to sell...". I don't know why anyone with the right mind would sell a 500 miles "used" CT at $98k, and risk a $50k lawsuit initiated by Tesla at a later date. Sure, people can be that stupid and/or batshit crazy.

Lastly, if you are that concern about the potential loss on future value of a Cybertruck that you waited for 4 years and 5 months, PLEASE, I am begging you DON'T buy the Cybertruck FS now and let someone else take your spot. That way, you may be able to minimize your financial loss, and sleep better at night. By doing so, you may also send a message to Tesla that "yes, I can wait another 4 years to buy the barebone CT at the original price of $49,990" with VIN# 1,456,789". THAT DAY MAY COME ONE DAY! Yeah, right!

An Apple iPhone 15 will be at $300, 4 years later in 2028. Assuming there will be Apple iPhone 16, 17, 18, 19 coming out within the next 4 years. Assuming the same will happen for the future value of Cybertruck, however, it will require Tesla to push out Cybertruck 2, 3, 4, 5 in the next 4 years. Most sane people know that will not happen.

Yea I have zero concern about the value loss, I am used to taking a 50% bath on new vehicles but I get enjoyment out of them for a few months then trade or sell them. For me those vehicles are a small percentage of my yearly expenditures.

To me I don't see why dealers would list trucks for sale and waste people's time if they did not exist, and then reporting those vehicles as sold could likely constitute fraud.
There may be some facebook marketplace or craigslist fake truck trying to get people to "just send the money for the transportation" scam but think the rest of them are likely legit going through the high profile auctions, dealers, etc.

Think region may be the biggest factor in price. Out in CA and TX they you can find one for $110k if you get into areas that there are fewer deliveries like the NE and midwest they are back up into the $140-$160s

99 Trucks for sale on cargurus alone today, and with 10+ sold yesterday.
Prices as low as $112k so pretty sure the flippers are losing their shirts!

Even the highly visible auction sites with extensive pre etc are getting well under $150k

I truly believe that this will discourage people from taking reservations with the intent of selling as in a week or two a used truck is going to cost less than a new one, which is how it should be!

Oh absolutely.
The used cybertrucks are still selling with up to 1,000 miles on them for MORE than a new one by at least $5,000 which is not common for any vehicle.

The current pricing is about ideal for stockholders as the flippers are losing their shirts as Tesla intended but the trucks are also not selling for well under new price yet, it will happen soon but the fact that the truck has not gone under 100k used yet is great.

Where are you finding sales prices? If these were legit asking prices, I don't see how they are staying in business.
