I was in the market for a CPO Model S and ended up putting a payment on one on Saturday (1 Dec). After doing some research the past couple weeks, I've learned the CPO process has significantly changed, one of which is that Tesla was no longer offering shipping and local pick-up only. This was my assumption going in and I was prepared to buy a plane ticket to San Francisco where the vehicle was listed as a local pick-up. However, I received an email this morning from a "Tesla Inside Delivery Advisor" saying this vehicle would be shipped to my nearest Tesla delivery center. This was obviously news to me so I gave her a call to clarify. Apparently, as of this week, they will ship CPOs to your nearest Tesla delivery center for a flat rate fee of $2,000. While not the cheapest option, it does save me a lot of time and money since taking delivery of a vehicle in California requires you to pay CA sales tax regardless if you're an out-of-state residence. The state I'll be registering the car in doesn't have sales tax so that's a pretty significant saving. Anyways, just wanted to let anyone else know that is in a similar situation.
