    What (if any) badges are applied to the newest MS now that the battery size designations are discontinued? Any way to identify a standard range from extended range? Are the Performance cars badged as such? Ludicrous option underlined?

    Just talked to a friend who lives near Freemont plant and said he saw a truck of Model S's/X's and none had any badging on the back. Possibly something the dealers put on now? Or they are blank! Still trying to figure this out for sure

    Sorry, I'm late to this conversation.
    So new S/X's are being delivered with only one battery size?
    I just checked the Tesla web site and they say Standard, Long Range and Performance?
    What does that even mean?
    Day one (2013) no cars were badged. Back to the beginning?

    Yup looks like this. The new long range raven Model S tested in the motor trend video had the dual motor badging.

    You can “build a Model S” on the website and view the rear of the car. It appears to show the Model S on the left of the rear but no battery designation at all on the right

    Perhaps your statement about day 1 Model S badging? I got a P85 in Dec 2012 and it had "Model S P85" badging.

    Maybe different parts of the country. None of my peers had badging during that time frame.

    Some of our dealers remove badging to apply PPF, and then often reapply the badges but not always depending on the car owners request. A bit off topic - but I've seen some use a gauge for proper replacement of the emblems/badging. Does anyone know where those can be found?

    Picked up my Standard Range Raven Model S on Saturday. Just has the dual motor badge on the back right of the hatch. I’m considering adding the “model s” badge on the left. Seems odd to me that it’s not on there in the first place.

    Interesting, thanks for the info, and congratulations :) I don’t supposed you noticed the badging on the other cars when you were picking it up? ;)

    What does it look like? There was the original that looked like an M3 / Audi S badge that I only saw in photos and then there was the one they stabilized on for production permanently.

    My 2013 was delivered without badges.
