Standard or extended range to buy, drive 1 year / 5,000-10,000 miles, and sell?

I was going to order a Lariat ER, but a $7,000 question just became a $7,000+$7,500 question due to the tax credit loss (>$80,000).

Considering the new price of the option, and tax credit, would it make more sense to just go with SR or will demand really be that much less on the tail end?

I figure if I loose 20%, typical one year depreciation, $75 lariat = 60k. After tax credit I'm only in it $67,500 so it's not that bad.

Ordering XLT isn't an option anymore as its "sold out". It was there yesterday, but I finally got my dealer to agree to MSRP and now its gone :)

seems Like an odd plan to strategize your purchase around using it for a year only to sell it. Maybe I get it, as Tesla driver said, get the ER. Especially if ranges are turning out to be underwhelming, you’ll want as much as you can when you turn around to sell it.
