Tesla on Turo

I am thinking of buying a used Tesla Model(X/S/3)  and list it on Turo, for an additional income.

Can someone please share your thoughts if I can write off the cost of the car, maintenance & repairs as an investment expense?

You can BUT it is not an investment expense  ... you will fill in a Sch C for self employment since you will be in the business of renting the auto and you will need to  use the actual vehicle expenses + depreciation option  prorated between the miles you use it and the miles put on it by the renters.

Review chapter 4 of IRS publication 463 for how to treat vehicle expenses.
