I'm no electrical engineer, but couldn't Tesla make 800V cars by essentially having two 400V packs that can be charged on legacy Superchargers and then have a contractor that puts them in series after Supercharging stops?

You may not gain any charging speed benefits, but the car itself can benefit from the high voltage architecture.
