    Wow....what to do. My 90D with all options with the exception of the subzero package has an estimated delivery date between late July - August. I wonder if Tesla will give an option to add those new features or will they add them in without any additional cost (doubtful, but hopeful). Any opinions?

    After doing some searching, I was able to find on the Tesla site they will either build per order, cancel the current order and move forward with the new pricing/options. I am not certain if the $500 change order fee is applicable in this situation.

    Autoweek is Dutch. Anyway, I guess they'll put the falcon wing doors on the S :)

    I haven't visited the design studio for a while, but it is new to me that a 60kw version is sold, and that it can be upgraded to a 75kw via SW (the SW upgrade from 70 to 75 is known)

    That's new from today so that was probably what would be announced today.

    Base price is now $66,000 for Model S 60 kWh RWD. Adding the range upgrade to 75 kWh makes it $74,500.

    Upgradeable after purchase to 75... So this is just the same battery, but more software locked? Crazy.

    That's a good move. There's little upgrade incentive moving from 70 and 75 but going from 60 to 75 will be a lot more tempting. While, at the same time, it lowers entry point which could in turn enable Tesla to sell more cowbells upfront.

    I'm willing to be that 60 is upgrade-able to 75 via software.

    Note that the new-again S60 is like a reduced S70:
    - Supercharging included
    - "Infinite miles" battery failure warranty.

    Many of us have been joking that our 70D refresh models were going to be rare, but I didn't think it was coming this soon. We'll see if anything else gets announced though - guess the prohibitive favorite is ventilated seats

    No betting, it absolutely is. Enable after delivery for $9,000.

    On the website now. No more Model 70 or 70D. Starts at 60, upgrade able to 75 for $8500. You can now get into a Model S for $66,000..or $58,500 after tax credit.

    Does this make the refreshed 70s (that have the option to upgrade to 75) more unique and perhaps more valuable? Thoughts?

    I am a bit curious as to how 10KW adds 22 miles from 60D to 70D, yet 5KW adds 19 miles from 70D to 75D
