    $1,000 Order Fee added to my update Plaid + Order

    I also got some ridiculous comment about this, that it’s not actually my refundable deposit but a new fee.

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    I got the same thing. Really annoying they keep doing stuff like this. Hopefully they change it.

    Elon tweet: Tesla will honor $10k discount for Plaid+ reservation holders

    If you hold on to the reservation and don’t complete the online delivery checklist, can you hold on to the deal for as long as you want?

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    My order has finally been changed in the account page. A couple questions for you guys: 1. For some reason my interior trim is now carbon fiber instead of wood like I wanted, but if I try to edit the design I get slapped with the $10k FSD instead of $8k FSD like my order originally had. How do...

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    I essentially got a similar reaction from an engineer last night. Asked about 4680 in the S. He was like “uhhhh. Not at this time. I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say” and another engineer interrupted him.

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    I was told the same thing. Incredibly frustrating. I won’t be buying the car.

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    Honestly if this is true, this is incredibly disappointing. I’ve waited for YEARS for a refresh S. Finally the Plaid+ was everything I wanted. Had the reservation since Battery Day. What the hell kind of company puts up a product for sale and then cancels it?

    New 2021 Model S Unveiled January 27, 2021

    Has it been confirmed that those who ordered the Plaid on Battery Day are getting the Plaid+?

    Ordered my MS Plaid

    Trying to decide between 21s and 19s. I know the 21s are a rougher ride, but they just look so much better. Is it REALLY so much worse than the 19s in terms of ride comfort?

    I ordered. How can I edit the order though?

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    While he initially said they would try to change the dimensions to roughly 3% smaller, he later went on to say that the proposed changes would make the truck too small and therefore the changes would be minimal.

    Project Palladium Wishlist - New Model S and X

    Agree with pretty much all the proposed features. Always rubbed me the wrong way that Elon said new tech will always come to the S/X, yet here we are and all the new tech has gone to 3/Y. Really looking forward to new battery tech, hopefully an interior refresh with landscape screens. Exterior...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    My understanding is the exterior won’t change until at least next year. We are heading towards some sort of update I’m Q3 or Q4 though. Likely Plaid powertrain.

    FSD NOW 8k for all models

    Sorry but $8k for FSD in its current form is too much. I get that it will improve over time. But I know a ton of people who were choosing not to pay even $7k. At some point it just becomes too cost prohibitive and people just want to drive their car.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    I refuse to give electrek any clicks but not sure why it’s summer now. Elon said about a year from now in like October 2019.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Interesting timing regarding the 402 mile Model S. Doesn’t seem like an actual “upgrade”, simply a re-rating by the EPA of all S cars since late January. In my mind, the next significant upgrade will be Plaid Model S - which will likely be end of year or early 2021 based on Elon’s comments...

    Model S standard and performance just got reduced by 5k

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Anyone with AP1 and MCU1 get an invite yet?

    thank you for posting these. I personally can’t stand the 20 minute videos with info like this spread out. Just drop a quick article and give people the most pertinent info.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    I may have to do the same. I have to think that there will be other upgrades before Plaid. Strange the way that announcement worked out.

    Model S Plaid

    So excited for the plaid S. What an unusual announcement by Elon. Would think that it would Osborne S sales for a year now. Certainly made me hold off cause I’ve been waiting for an upgrade, was hoping it would be sooner than a year from now.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Yeah not at all the same thing. No way you’re actually arguing that $7k for autopilot in its current form is a good thing. Some vague promise of “at some point in the future FSD will actually be a thing” and “feature complete” is dumb AF. Elon is way ahead on the pricing and well below...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Totally agree. Their communications strategy has been erratic as hell for a long time now. Been tough being long on this stock.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    The FSD price increase is such nonsense. FSD is not compelling enough to discuss any price increases whatsoever. Completely boneheaded move by Elon. $7k for FSD in its current form is insane.

    Is it quieter than your old S?

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    This isn’t a fix by any means. It’s a temporary demand lever, that will surely go away next quarter.
  29. D

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    In my mind, free unlimited supercharging is a demand lever for this quarter and hopefully the battery change +/- some upgrades are coming next quarter.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    I don’t think any updates have been pushed to January. I still think we see something in Q4.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Next-gen Tesla Model S/X rumored to have 3 electric motors, 400+ mile range I think there’s no question that there are prototypes testing some new upgrades, potentially three motors and a bigger/better battery pack. This is just a game of semantics. Whatever upgrade comes next, it won’t be...

    It’s never exactly what Tesla said. They always have something cooking.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    In my opinion, the elimination of the lower end S is signaling that a new battery is incoming and the S will move further upmarket.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    It’s not so simple, and certain parts of what you said are simply not true. Porsche will undoubtedly advertise. Even the crappy Audi etron with 204 miles is heavily advertised and in some publications even suggested as better than Tesla. The comparisons and how much “better” the Porsche is, will...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    While that’s true, the Taycan will always be compared to a Model S, not the 3. And because Porsche/VW pay for ads, you can expect a ton of incorrect info out there and several large publications that will say the Taycan is better. Those ads don’t work on people like you and me, but they do work...
  39. D

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    The S HAS to get upgrades, plain and simple. Raven wasn’t enough. They have to keep selling their premium flagship product, especially with cars like the Taycan on the horizon. They’re not going to abandon the S/X in favor of the 3/Y.

    Where is the info about GF1 increased cell/pack output? Would be awesome!

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    I think it’s obvious Elon’s twitter posts are related specifically to the word “refresh”. He has said on numerous times Tesla does not do refreshes. Also no interior “redesign” but maybe a dashboard change. New battery. Upgrades are definitely coming, it’s just not a “refresh”.

    Yet another hit piece. Right on cue.

    That’s an interesting thought. Dual motor badging foreshadowing tri motor badging. Would be super into this.

    How embarrassing it must be for Adam Jonas. What an idiot.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Interesting info. What’s the timing on that solid state battery pack?
  46. D

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    How irresponsible of Adam Jonas. He’s discussing a “restructuring” story of Tesla after one bad quarter. No growth apparently. Q1 year over year growth didn’t count. Guidance of 360k this year is no growth.
  47. D

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Similar timing to what I’ve been told. Let’s hope!

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    This post resonated with me as I am in a similar position. Unfortunately we all believed Elon. I love the guy, he’s incredible, but he just oversaw nearly a 50% drop in market cap. That is disastrous. I hope he learned his lesson. Nobody gives a *sugar* about robotaxis, people want TANGIBLE goals...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    LOL I was getting ready to counter everything you said until I read the end. For what it’s worth, I have a very reliable source that says it’s happening end of year. Like you said, who knows though
