    Edit: False alarm. See post #8.

    Here's something strange I noticed on the design studio today when pricing out various options:

    Probably done to reflect the $2k they supposedly say the supercharging hardware and software costs

    Design Studio is clearly having some problems.

    In drees' post, $49,900 + $22,000 should equal $71,900, not $73,900.

    I just got this:

    Which at first glance seems fixed (85kWh battery is $20K, not $22K), but the math is even worse: $49,900 + $20,00 = $69,900, not $73,900. Somehow an extra $4K got added....

    If so, then the supercharging really isn't included anymore (since the price recently went up).

    Regardless, I went to the site myself. It may have been a glitch.

    EDIT: wow...three people taking screen shots and cropping in imaging software on a Friday night. Ain't that something?

    RDoc and kevinwelch, see my post just before yours. Design Studio still can't add.

    That's the cost of the 3G package!

    Yes, I noticed and deleted my post.
    I really really hope the software on the car is better than the web site!

    Just received this message -

    Hi,
    The 85 kWh battery pack price remains $20,000 over the base price of Model S, not $22,000. There was a problem in our design studio which we have just corrected. I'm sorry about the confusion.

    Thanks,
