    So far there has only been wishful thinking by customers.

    It's already happened -- it's called a "trade-in".

    :)

    Tesla would rather sell you a whole new car then allow battery upgrades. But I'm with you,I'm holding out.

    I will never trade in my P85DL with sport suspension and rear next gen seats with any PxxDL with "boat" suspension and a rear bench. Holding out too.

    Same here. Can't afford $160 for a similarly spec'd P100DL (not to mention having to pay off the P85D loan). But if Tesla offered a battery upgrade for $25k, that would be really tempting.

    Even the P90DL users are waiting for the P100D Retrofit program to begin. Announced last August, and it's now July, 11 months later. Hopefully soon!

    Now it's July 5th. We are all still waiting. Tesla has been silent, but I'm guessing his comment (see below) is a potential reason why the retrofit has not started)

    “The major factor affecting Tesla’s Q2 deliveries was a severe production shortfall of 100 kWh battery packs, which are made using new technologies on new production lines. The technology challenge grows exponentially with energy density. Until early June, production averaged about 40% below demand. Once this was resolved, June orders and deliveries were strong, ranking as one of the best in Tesla history.”

    Of course, only if you are willing to spend that kind of money or have the knowledge and skills as you do(car guru?)

    Your 4th july podcast was awesome :D

    Good bye warranty ;) Too much hassle for me.

    I get Tesla not wanting to upgrade batteries and rather you trade in, given they have way more demand for batteries than they can produce. But if they do start offering battery swaps, I think it could be quite interesting to see if these old 85kwh and 90kwh battery packs are made available to put into the older S 40 and S 60 cars.

    I've got an S 60, and would love to upgrade to 85 or 90. I wouldn't mind a second hand pack if the price/condition was right. Of course 100kwh would be better, but hey, maybe a 2nd hand 85kwh battery wont be that expensive?

    I've heard of used 60kwh packs being available for just $6,000 or so. Suggesting an old 85kwh pack may be available for $8,500. Of course you have to pay for installation. But this isn't just an upgrade price. You technically can keep your old pack and turn it into some sort of home power storage.

    Any reason Tesla won't simply offer older packs to cars with even less capacity?

    i second that. If they come out with something for me to upgrade my 70kw/h battery to 85 or 90 for under 15k with battery swap/trade in benefit. I might strongly look into.
