    Elon said they are implementing some changes to reduce the variations that cause production challenges:


    No longer selling the 60 kWh in a dual motor version.
    No longer selling the P85 single motor version.
    Eliminating green and brown.

    PS - those who got the prior smaller sun visor: He said prior purchasers will be offered the improved sun visor. Elon did not say without charge.

    That's too bad. I should have gotten the RWD P85.

    60D and P85 was just canceled

    60D cancelation was mentioned in Q3 earnings call and while I didnt notice P85 being mentioned, both options are now gone from design page.

    So we will have following versions available:

    S60
    S85
    S85D
    P85D

    Green and brown were likely the least popular colors. Makes sense to drop them. Where I live I see multiple Tesla's every day. I rarely see green or brown.

    They switched some other things around, too - for the S85, the D upgrade is now $5k, up from $4k. I didn't notice anything else, but I'm just going from memory.

    Removing colours is a mistake. On the other hand simplifying the dual/single motor choices in the lineup makes a lot of sense.


    BTW brown was beautiful on this car ...

    Elon also mentioned brown and green were leaving -- not sure if it's happened yet though. But yay for visors

    Goodbye Brown and Green

    Elon just announced on the Q3 call that the colors were being discontinued.
    The Design Studio has already been updated.

    I suspect we'll see some new colors soon.

    Gah, now I'm all tempted to see if I can find a new(ish) P85. Dammit.

    Is this good or bad? Charging another $k for AWD (something included?), making people get the 85 to get the D, and really making people pay for the P. Trying to drive transaction price up again?

    Perhaps the color removals are in part to make room on the production line for model x signature colors?
