Aside from the ridiculously high auction prices for these crashed cars, if you go to the auction site, you will see from the other pictures that the passenger compartments are all intact despite some cars having very heavy impact damage. These auction prices may drop as more an more Model 3s end up on the salvage auction but with the aftermarket uses of batteries, motors, and other parts, I suspect that the prices will remain high. We see that flood salvaged Model S/X cars still command very high values and I expect flooded Model 3s with no major body damage to do the same.

Remember this Model 3 that went into a light pole? It only had 490 miles on it (OH THE HORROR!)https://teslaownersonline.com/threa...affic-light-pole-passenger-cabin-intact.5749/
Guess what? It looks like it was auctioned to a bidder in Ukraine for $31,500!

Even this heavily damaged Model 3 sold for $22,600 to Missouri (Looks similar to the one that EVTV used to do their battery teardown video and their battery was fully functional)

Wow - sad to see them meet their demise that early. I'm sure interesting stories for each one. You hope everyone was OK afterwards and I know they are just auto's, but man I'd be crying to see that happen. Windshield in tact on 3 of the 4 it looks like even with front end almost destroyed.

With the constraint on parts and overall price of the car, those prices don't surprise me I guess.

I know that if I could get my hands in that trunk and any of them are later VIN cars, there is at least one piece of trim in there that is in high demand ! lol

And then I'll just ask @Brokedoc just what kind of sick man goes looking for destroyed Model 3's?
