^ It's averaging 1100 units a month- not setting anything on fire. 4 months out of 7 were in the 600-800 units/month range. The model 3 cannibalized a lot of volume out of the S, which is long-in-the-tooth at this point. Plus it lost it's 'entry-level' price tier and the tax credit is ratcheting down; a double hit to its pricing.

^ insideevs shows 725 & 625 for Jan & Feb.
Regardless, it's not bad, but its on the decline as the chart shows for 2016>2017>2018... and 2019 is on pace for only 14,057. That's 3 years of declining sales. The price bump & the Model 3 hurt the S.
Agreed once you consider the price point.

Doesn't most everything decline as they reach the end of their life cycle? 

A 14,000 sales number this year would be pretty bad. They need to update that car more than just software or even hardware(which I think they have recently updated the motors themselves). They really just need to slap a new body on it. Obviously everything else new would be important as well.
