Earlier in May, we told you about three zero-mile 2010 Tesla
Roadsters found in a shipping container overseas. These
pristine examples will seemingly be the last brand-new, completely
assembled first-gen Roadsters to be sold 13 years after they were
initially built. But why were they never delivered? And how did
they land in China?
Gruber Motors, the shop brokering the deal, performed some
detective work to figure it out. It was discovered that the three
Roadsters were all intended to be dismantled by an early Tesla
competitor — test mules in last decade’s international EV race.
And now, someone has submitted a $2 million bid in hopes of adding
them to their collection.
