    Upgrading early model s

    I'm trying to upgrade my early 2013 model s60 to a p85. The reason I'm doing this instead of buying a used p85 is because my 60 is my first car and I don't want to get rid of it. This is a crazy idea I'm cooking up in my head so bear with me here. I have been trying to learn how to reconfigure...

    Model X 60D upgrade option not available

    I have a 2016 Model X 60D and with the recent tesla account site update they removed the upgrade option for my vehicle. It's very frustrating that they have made it super difficult to reach support to find answers. I was at the service center and asked them about the upgrade and they are now...

    Model S 70 to 75 Battery Up was a ripoff

    Recently purchased over the air 70 to 75 battery upgrade for my 1 year old Model s. Expected increase was 15 miles but actually got 6 miles. Talked to support and they ran diagnostics etc but they said that's all my car will get. 15 is just an estimation and given the car is 1 year old and got...

    Are current Model S/X upgradable to higher battery capacity in the future?

    Here is a question that might have something to do with TESLA future revenue: is it possible for currently Model S/X to upgrade to larger battery after 10 years? Say, 10 years later, 130 kwh battery is only $20000, and my 10 year old 75D can upgrade to 130D? Any rumors of that?

    I just read a post ( https://www.engadget.com/2016/11/14/tesla-model-s-60-price-increase/ ) that states the price of the base Model S 60 will increase by $2k. Do you think that this in turn will reduce the cost of the post purchase battery unlock/upgrade for the current owners of the software...

    Upgradeable 60kw Battery

    Sorry if this isn't the right place for this question, but how can you tell if a Model S w/ 60kw battery OS one that can be upgraded to 75kw? Is there a VIN number or production date that lets you know if it's possible or not?

    You 85kWh -> 90 kWh, me 40kWh -> your old 85 kWh pack + money to you...

    Hi All, I have 40kWh Tesla, because the supercharger network can now finally reach the place I'd most like to take the car, I'd like to make the leap to upgrade to 85kWh / 90kWh pack... Given how little I drive (20k km in 3 years), it's hard to justify the cost of a new 90kWh pack. Maybe you...
