Three brand new 2010 Tesla Roadsters found in shipping containers 13 years after being shipped into China.
Trio of Roadsters were bought by a customer in China but were never delivered to its owner due to unknown reasons.
After arriving in China, the Roadsters were left sitting in containers at a port, accruing storage charges.
If all-electric cars fail to find buyers in China, they will be brought back to U.S where they will be sold to the highest bidder.
Three brand new U.S spec 2010 Tesla Roadsters have been found in shipping containers in China about 13 years after being shipped from the United States into the country.
According to Tesla Roadster broker, Gruber Motor Company, the three Roadsters finished in Radiant Red (1) and Orange (2) were bought by a customer in China but were never delivered to its owner due to unknown reasons.
After arriving in China, the Roadsters were left sitting in sea containers at a port, accruing storage charges, though Gruber notes that the charges are being paid for by the seller.
If the trio of all-electric vehicles fail to find buyers in China, Gruber Motor said that they will be brought back to the USA by mid-May where they will be sold to the highest bidder.
“What we do not yet know is if the ESS pack Service Plugs were pulled before shipment, and even more intriguing, if they were, is there any life left in the packs after 13 years of storage. We will not know until they are retrieved and fired up.
“We also do not know how many, if any miles were on odometers from testing/delivery of new Roadsters.
Once, or if the Roadsters come back to the US, they will be shipped to Gruber Motors for a full technical review.”, says Gruber Motor.
