    Hi all,

    I’m in the market for either a 2015 85D or P85D. I’ve read about an over-the-air firmware update that took the 85D’s 0-60 time from 5.1 down to 4.4. Does this apply to 2015 85Ds as well? Thanks!

    I can’t figure out how to edit my post, but want to add the reason I’m asking is that all the Tesla.com CPO listings have the 85D doing a 5.4sec 0-60.

    The CPO listings have the original 0-60 spec, but I believe that all of the 85 D cars have been updated over the air to the new 4.2-4.4 sec spec.

    I have a March 2015 85D that I bought as CPO in Oct 2016. It does do 4.2s 0-60. It reports
    325 kW (436 HP) when you stomp on it with close to full charge.

    I have a Feb 2015 S 85D. A few weeks after I bought it an OTA update increased the power and lowered the 0-60 time. I was very pleased since I bought the car with a 5.1 second time and literally overnight it went to 4.4.
    I think people are using the originally advertised 5.1 seconds in the listings. All of the cars got the update.
