Anyone know if Tesla would be willing to upgrade a standard 85 to a P85
Yes it can. Originally they said no but now you could go from an S40 to a P85+. They've done all retrofits now but it's super duper expensive and much cheaper just to sell and buy new.
Good to know they'll do the upgrade!
Im looking at pre owned MS and found a standard Sig model s, and was just curious if I were to buy it would i be able to upgrade to a performance!
Well if it's a sig I don't know. Sigs used older prototype hardware that are limited in different ways. I wouldn't be surprised if a sig is NOT upgradable to a performance model.
Personally, I would never buy a sig for numerous reasons.
It's around $18k.
Where the hell did you find a Model S, any Model S, for $18k?
I'll be there tomorrow to buy from you for $20k. Make yourself a nice tidy 11% profit.
I think he's saying the upgrade from S85 to P85 is $18k.
Wow that's steep
I was hoping for something in the 9-10k range
That's for the P85+ not the P85, right? That includes all 4 21" rims even if you already 21" rims.
That's the delta when ordered new; it's going to have to be more than that to do a retrofit.
If you're buying used, by far the easier thing to do is just be on the lookout for a P.
S85=>P85 only. You keep the old drive unit.
No. That's just for the performance inverter upgrade. The retrofit from P85 -> P85+ is another 23k. So if you want to go from S85 -> P85+ it's probably going to be around $40k. Tesla seems to charge somewhere along the lines of 2x-4x of the originally order price for retrofits. It's absurd really. For that price it's much better to sell and purchase a new car and I think that's part of their strategy for their pricing (they don't want to do the retrofits).
Ouch. Yeah, better to just buy a new car at that point.
S85 to P85 is apparently:
$25K from P85 to P85+ for "full" retrofit (which, IIRC, isn't actually truly identically to a fresh P85+)
$15K from P85 to P85+ for "partial" retrofit and my understanding is that this is no longer available
its 20k just for the upgrade to the drive unit, and includes the credit you will receive for your old drive unit. It does not include wheels, seats, etc.
I requested a quote so that's why I know.
Thanks. Tough to keep track off all the various upgrades and variations there are sometimes. If that old P85 to new P85 for $5,000 ever becomes official that seems like the best option. If I had an S85 if probably wait until there was some other tangible upgrade to make jump to P85 such as larger pack or AWD.
