Try making setting up a search on EBay and you'll get an email update whenever someone posts a Slingshot for sale.make sure you specify "Polaris Slingshot" or you'll get a lot of hits for (toy/hunting slingshots). You can also try SearchTempest.com which will allow you to setup a CL search and specify within whatever distance of a given location you desire. You can Save searches and also use it to search EBay or Amazon.

The 2020 Slingshots have some automatics. None of the older one were auto's,
Some of the pre-2020 Slingshots may have had a true automatic transmission added via the aftermarket, so if you come across a listing for a pre-2020 Slingshot with auto trans, keep that in mind.
Also, keep in mind that if you find a Slingshot that really meets your wants but lacks an automatic transmission, a conversion costs $5-6K, meaning you'll probably spend less compared to buying a new 2020. Also, the new 2020 Slingshots technically have an automated manual which currently lacks the refined shifting of a traditional automatic transmission and also does NOT allow you select what gear the Slingshot is in at any given time. The AutoDrive tnds to shift a little abruptly and at least one person got rear-ended when his Wife was following in the Slingsdhot and the light changed when she accelerated a little more briskly than she intended! At the same tiome, the new Poalris engine is reported to allow a much more motorcycle-like driving experience since it revs much higher that the older GM-manufactured engine. I'm sure some of the aftermarket supporters of the Slingshot are trying to figure out if they can improve the shift performance of the new AutoDrive.
