Pros of an Older Tesla:
- you can get a Models S for cheaper than a Model 3
- Older Model S has the same interior space as the new
- You will find little loss in performance compared to a new one
- You will see little battery range loss

Cons of an Older Tesla:
- no factory warranty, unless you search for a model with one
- No 4g. Older Tesla Model 3 had 3G internet. If you don't do much browsing on your Tesla, you will be fine.
- No access to Supercharger. Very few of the 2013 and 2014 can be charged on a Supercharger. If you want this, look for a model with this function.
- No Enhanced auto-pilot. This is new for 2018 models and onwards.

Now, unless you want the latest and greatest, used Tesla cars are more than enough. What would you rather have a new Prius or Volt or a beautiful used Tesla Model S--- we know the answer.
