Curb weight decrease?

I know that Tesla tries very hard to keep the weight down of the car and doesn't release the car in model years. This is so huge difference that it needs to be discussed

When I visited http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Sho...-Newer+Vehicles/Vehicle-Detail?vehicleId=9834 the model s 85D tested wieght just 4321 lbs down from
2,188 kg (4,824 lb) according to wikipedia. Maybe there is something wrong with the test data, the p85d shows the same weight (432lbs).

Thats a difference in methodology not necessarily actual weight change. If you notice safercar.gov has the same 4321 listed for everything from the 2013 60 to the 2015 85D.

Car and Driver tested the 2015 P85D at 5010lbs, the 2015 70D at 4608, the 2013 P85 at 4785 and the 2014 60 at 4323. Thats much more reliable data and doesn't indicate any significant weight creep.
