    From what I recall, that 85D 0-60 was 4.4 sec, but it now says on the website 4.2 sec. Any news on that?

    Been like that since 6.2, the old numbers were just underrated.

    Not quite true.

    Original 85D acceleration was 0-60 in 5.4 sec (this was probably also underrated).
    On a point release after 6.2 (that I don't recall) they added a Sport mode to the 85D that made it 0-60 in 4.4 sec (again still underated).
    Another subsequent release removed the Sport mode and made the 85D always be 0-60 in 4.4 sec.

    It's been generally observed that you can do better than 4.4 sec in the 85D some saying as low as 3.9 sec.

    It's not clear if the reduced time is a further hardware improvement on newer cars, a software improvement, or no improvement and Tesla just adjusting the number to be more realistic.

    Time and testing will likely answer that.

    So in "real life" is the 70D 0-60 time 5.4 sec, or quicker, or slower? Anyone time their 70D?
