If you're even slightly into cars, you've probably met a lot of "Tesla deniers" -- people who complain bitterly about Tesla, its vehicles and its owners, and who loudly insist that Tesla will be out of business soon. These people often also assert that Tesla's vehicles are poorly made and that they don't last very long. This Model S seems to show otherwise.

This is a 2013 Tesla Model S, and it's offered by a private seller in Berlin, Massachusetts, west of Boston. It's not especially notable, except for one important item: It has traveled 163,000 miles from new. That makes it the highest-mileage Tesla currently listed for sale on Autotrader, and surely one of the highest-mileage examples overall, especially since it was sold new in December 2013, meaning it hasn't even been on the road for five years.

Interestingly, this Model S looks like it's held up fairly well to all the miles. The interior looks nice, with no unusual wear, and the exterior looks exactly how you'd expect a Model S with half the miles to look. Both interior screens also look fully functional, with no exceptional wear.

According to the owner, this Model S still has over three years of battery warranty left, which makes it a pretty good deal at just $29,995 -- well under half the original MSRP. And while one single anecdotal example may not prove Tesla's reliability, you have to admit that this thing has done pretty well despite a lot of time on the road.
