I've been thinking nonstop about how I should've gotten the P90D instead of 85D to feel the acceleration and power, but it seems like they're more similar than I once though.
85D 0-60 has been seen to be sometimes as low as 3.85, average around 4.0. This is without rollout
P90D is 3.1 with rollout, which means really around 3.3
Seeing this, I feel better knowing that 20K+ would only get me a car half a second faster. Delivery should come soon (hopefully)

Any 85D owners thoughts on acceleration?

I love my car and definitely don't find the acceleration lacking. I had a P85D loaner a few months ago and it's a whole other level of fast.

Worth 20k more? That depends on how many extra 20ks you have sitting around i guess. :)

First, if it hasn't been said already, welcome to the joys of ownership. I wish you the best with an awesome car incoming.

So you know there's a thread dedicated on comparing how Tesla originally marketed the p85d in which there is some discussion of the relative performance characteristics. Although just over, ahem, 2800 posts now there's a good summary of the debate so far at http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/show...85D-and-P90L?p=1344281&viewfull=1#post1344281

There is also a thread on how some brave owners are gather high-resolution performance data from some of the cars via. the CAN bus over here: http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/61570-Chassis-CAN-Logging-To-ASCII-Text-Plus-Graphing

Also, you might want to look into upgrading that 85 to 90KW battery if it's only $3K: http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/show...terisk-(up-to-81-kWh-with-up-to-77-kWh-usable). No digest post, though high likelihood that 85KW battery is actually 77KW useable (after 4KW reserved). Get the 90KW battery if you can for that bargainous price difference.

Definitely an exciting and passionate userbase on this forum :)

Again, good luck and happy reading

The best I've seen is 4 seconds *with* the 1 ft rollout. Where are you getting your numbers?

I should note that the quoted 0-60 when i ordered my 85D was 5.2 or so? And got 'upgraded' to low 4s before i took delivery. So i definitely got more than i expected.

Tesla Model S 85D Drag Tested 28 Times - YouTube
Although it seems like his clock is counting a bit fast. More like 3.95-4.15

Thanks, I'm very excited :). Unfortunately, they wouldn't allow me to change any options. They told me it was being built already over a week ago, which seems fishy to me since it takes only a few days to build.
If I had the chance I'd definitely upgrade to the 90d. Honestly don't know if I'd go performance.
