If you’re going to buy a $75,000 Model S, it pays to avoid brown.

The color—only available with a special order after it was discontinued in 2014—was the most likely to be discounted among used Tesla vehicles analyzed by automotive research company iSeeCars.com. On the used market, more than a quarter of brown Tesla’s were discounted at least 10% compared to the average Model S vehicle. That’s at least $5,155 less. One is selling for just $39,999.99.
