    Anyone notice the new 0-60 times listed in the design center? It now shows 75 at 4.3 seconds and 75D at 4.2 seconds. That's 1.2 seconds less for 75 and 1.0 second less for the 75D. Just curious what changed? New hardware or possibly a software update? Anyhow, very pleased with new numbers!

    They probably just boosted it somewhow to differentiate the S more than the 3.

    Hmmm that's weird. I think it's just a 'typo' but if not, I very much hope that it's a software change and the older 75's get it too...

    I hope they release a software update to drop the 5.2/5.5 S75/75D cars a bit for those of us who purchased recently, but doubtful. Part of owning a Tesla I suppose.

    From the article:

    Since the enhancements include hardware upgrades, those new specs are for new vehicles being built today and not the current fleet.

    Another unknown when you buy used. No official release week or VIN or anything so you can only guess what you're buying in the future...

    Will existing 75s get some of that acceleration boost through a software upgrade?

    My 75S is scheduled to be produced according to MyTesla, ordered 3 weeks ago. Will my car have the new performance level?

    I got delivery of my 75D late last night (ordered thurs collected friday)
    Is this right that it will be only for cars ordered from today ? That really hurts if true.

    The only one that can answer that question is probably Tesla, ask them and if not you can always consider cancel you order and order a new.

    If you order it on Thursday and collected it on Friday it must have been an inventory car wish was produce some time ago. Sadly it most likely means that you didn't got it. Maybe they introduce it in production today wish means that some people that order there cars for some days or weeks ago and still haven't got there cars in to production can get the update as a nice surprise.

    Interesting.

    $100k+ 2012-2014 Tesla Model S P85 - 4.2 seconds
    $70k 2017 Tesla Model S 75 - 4.3 seconds

    I love progress.

    More typical Tesla changes to irritate their customers, especially right after a EOQ push.
    they just screwed people a few months back on the battery pack changes and now performance changes. Smooth move Tesla.
