Tesla treasure trove found in China after 13 years now worth a record $2 million

A trio of brand-new Teslas that were sitting in shipping containers on a Chinese dock since 2010 are about to be sold for a record amount.

The Roadsters were recently discovered in the city of Quingdao, having never been picked up by their buyer.

They were reportedly ordered by a Chinese startup electric car company that went bankrupt before it could claim them, presumably to reverse engineer the vehicles to assist with the development of its products.

Phoenix-based Tesla specialist Gruber Motor Company is handling their sale and accepting bids.
