0 to 60 on a 2015 85D?

I purchased a 2015 85D CPO from Tesla back in January and I noticed the CPO ads for the same model now mention a 5.2 0-60 time. I am not sure if they had that listed when I purchased mine. I always though my car did 0-60 in 4.2 until I happened to stumble on one of the CPO listings. Today, I decided to test it out, and my stopwatch from my iPhone came back at 4.35. Granted, I did this myself, so it's not a true/real test, but wanted to get everyone's thoughts on this.

I don't have the link handy but one poster here filmed his 2015 85D at a local drag strip. He ran 28 consecutive runs and ranged from 3.7 to 4.2 seconds for 0-60 times. Seemed like he averaged 3.9 when SOC was around 85% and up. His slower times of 4.2 came when he was about 75% or so. I believe his overall average was like 3.956.
