    That must be what they are referring to -- but I find it strange that they use a vehicle with the old nose cone to make this veiled announcement.

    Well, obviously some of the newer "S90" models (including pre-facelift ones) are actually S100 but they didn't tell anyone. Discuss. :)

    I'm happy to see the improvement in battery capacity, but so far Tesla has been absolutely against upgrading batteries for existing owners. So every incremental update has made early buyers feel left out. The only option was to buy an entirely new car. I hope with the 100 they will finally let people upgrade their battery. How about letting long time owners (who payed the same price but didn't get AP hardware and other newer features) and owners of 60 batteries upgrade first.

    404 would be more appropriate, or maybe 302

    I'm in the same boat as you. Is it really worth the extra cost involved to upgrade from an 85 to a 100? I bet that won't be cheap so I'd rather just pay the additional required to get a new car with the new battery, autopilot and the new nose.

    It's a super common emoji used by millennials. It means, "awesome, great, super". I wouldn't read too much into it.

    Y'all sure it doesn't read "700"? ;) Now that certainly would be something to get excited about!

    Given the Emoji implication, it is highly likely this means nothing, however I would love to be wrong. If someone posted this without realizing the implications they're a fool and should be demoted. I think it actually hurts sales because it discourages people from buying today.

    Happy they have not started my MX 90D with 5 seats. Maybe I get the upgrade sans charge? Peut-être?

    Yes having the old nose is strange, so maybe it is something else. Celebrating a 100k miles driver maybe? 100k model S sold (I must admit I stopped following this number long ago)?

    Someone that has Twitter should tweet him about it and see if he responds.

    I believe that on the Tesla page a 90D is rated at 302 miles. I would assume, using simple math (what else?) that a 100D would be eleven percent more, or 335 miles. Of course we could be talking nonD (do they make those?)
