1a 9

2008 Tesla Roadster, S/N 5YJRE11B681000349, Fusion Red with cream leather interior. 185kW electric motor with a 53 kilowatt-hour battery pack powering a three-phase electric induction motor mated to a single speed transmission…phew!

Telsa’s very first model and the 349th built…a “series 1” version of the car that started the empire…and this Roadster is a local, one-owner car that was ordered new by the current owner and he’s responsible for the ~28k miles on it…mostly commuting back and forth to work in Orange County. In spectacular condition and just serviced and updated by Gruber Motor Company of Phoenix, the Roadster experts (about $20k in receipts).

When nearly new, Tesla installed a “sound deadening kit” to this car for ~$4k which greatly improved the on-road noise level. This Tesla comes with a carbon fiber roof panel, soft roof panel, plug in charger, two 220 wall-mount home chargers, two keys and JVC head unit with navigation. These most likely will be one of the most collectible modern cars in the near future and the early ones are always the most pure in concept and design.

  • The first Tesla model and #349
  • One Newport Beach gentleman owner from new
  • Fusion Red with cream leather
  • Updated by Tesla Roadster experts in 2023

Copley Motorcars was established by Stu Carpenter in 1995. Working for other luxury and sportscar dealers in Boston since 1986, Stu has gained a longterm-experience in offering exceptional products at a fair price making the acquisition of a classic and luxury car as easy and as enjoyable as possible. The team at Copley Motorcars has a particular affinity for vintage Mercedes Benz, Ferrari and Land Rover Defender but also other blue chips such as 289 Cobra, BMW Z8 and Porsche 959. Since the market for these cars is a worldwide one, Copley Motorcars ships worldwide and can easily assist with the logistical arrangements. December 2019 marked Copley’s 24th year of buying and selling sports and classics. Their showroom is located in the center of Needham, about 15 miles west of the City of Boston. Copley has an interesting, some would say eclectic, mix of classic cars always on offer and find something to love about each and every one. And because Copley Motorcars is a smallish “boutique” type dealer, their classic cars don’t necessarily run out the door. A new arrival could be there for a day, a week or even six months. That said, all of their classics are different one to the next and are being looked at throughout the USA and the world. If you see a car you like and want to buy it, please contact copleycars@gmail.com. If you see a car and want to think about it, terrific too. But please, please, please assume that someone else is looking at the very same classic you are interested in so, if it gets sold, they do their very best to find another for you.
