    Makes little sense to pay $96K for a P90D that does not seem to have Ludicrous Mode. Much better off putting a bit more and buying a P100D or waiting a few months for P100D prices to come down. This way you get Ludicrous, a more reliable battery with greater capacity.

    That car did have Ludicrous, full new car warranty, still had the $7500 tax credit available, and only .01 less speed! Tesla has the Ludicrous in demo cars and it shows it here to be active, a good deal as you could get a total of 8 years warranty if wanted. Looks like the 3.1 was a mistake, besides it is very doubtful anyone could tell the difference in P90D vs P100D acceleration unless measured electronically or side by side racing.

    Good to know. Ludicrous was not mentioned on the details page for the car.

    Still though, if it were me, I would not pay almost $100K for a P90D with 18,000 of miles knowing some of the battery issues with the 90 pack. Also I don't think the actual battery capacity you can use is 90. With the P100D you end up with a more solid battery, faster acceleration, higher power output, and most likely better depreciation.

    I bet P100Ds with a bunch of miles can be had for just a little over $100K soon and that's a much better buy, at least as far as I'm concerned.

    True you can’t use 100 percent of any battery, 60, 75, 85, 90 or 100. Still the P90 and P100 have virtually no seat-of-pants detectable acceleration performance difference. That said I’d still rather have a P100 for bragging rights even if the difference is undetectable. My point was that you can have up to a full 8 years of full warranties on the inventory car where you can’t get that with a used car. I have one of each battery and have had virtually zero battery degradation. While you may hear of problems I truly believe they are somewhat isolated and 8 years of bumper to bumper warranties would put my mind at ease. My biggest fear on an inventory 18,000 mile P90 would be 18,000 launches, that would be hard on a car. :confused: Oh yeah as far as Ludicrous, I would rather have the $10,000 in my pocket to spend instead of having L in the car for the few times times it might get used.

    I don't disagree with anything you said. Just that if I pay almost $100K for a used Tesla, I'd rather wait a few months and buy a P100D around that price range. The usable battery capacity of the P100D is a lot greater than the usable battery capacity of a P90D and you get to enjoy that without any of the documented issues with the 90 pack...

    Yeah also agree on it not a good idea to buy a ludicrous mode car that has been used as a demonstrator/loaner car for 18,000 miles. That's probably equivalent to 100,000 miles of wear and tear for a normal owner and likely incurred at least 10,000 launches :eek:

    I’ll definitely be in the market for a well equipped low mile X P100D if they get cheap soon, as well as another S if the prices are right. :cool:
