The 2018, 2016 & 2015 Tesla Model S model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 66% of the original cost with 92% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 Model S. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 25.34 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2016 & 2015 Model S model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
