    That hyperlink doesn't go to what it says it does. You might want to fix it.

    But the P85D is "gen 1" as much as a 2012 Model S. It has some improvements, yes, but it's hardly Model S 2.0. It's more like version 1.5.

    Going to have to disagree here. I think AWD combined with autopilot features (when delivered) is a pretty strong argument for 2.0 of the platform.

    Then again, in some ways I would agree with calling Sigs a v0.9 product at times.

    Me thinks that the NY Times might want to "get with the times" and subscribe to Green Car Report before to avoid their continuous misreporting of Tesla's, EV's and battery's!

    Coming from a late 2013 P85, the late-2014 autopilot car (especially the P85D) is a significantly changed and upgraded car. If not 2.0, then at least 1.5. But really the autopilot additions alone push this into a 2.0 type of change.

    "Current production Model S cars can intelligently change lanes on their own via full proximity sensing systems and a simple flick of the turn signal when at freeway speeds. This feature too is currently operational."

    Is that correct?

    I am not an owner yet, but I do believe I've read a thread that is operational as part of the TACC. If your are cruising below your Max and flick the signal, the car will change lanes and then speed up to your max speed (if traffic or any other car you end up following allow for it).

    Not quite: at this time (.139/.140 firmware) all steering inputs are still done by the human driver. Flicking the left turn signal while TACC is engaged induces an acceleration under software control toward the current set point speed, no more. I haven't experimented to see what happens if you don't change lanes.

    Thank you, I stand corrected. I must have read the thread that they flicked the turn signal and turned the steering wheel without any input to the "go" pedal and misrembered. :)

    I too saw at least one early report of the automated lane changing, but have not tried it yet in my own driving. Others say "not yet," so perhaps it was briefly functional and withdrawn on the .139/.140 software updates?

    I've been lurking for quite a while, but now I'm an owner so I decided to register finally!

    I too am wondering about that... Is there a place to get details on what was affected by software updates?

    I found this but it's old: http://www.teslamotors.com/blog/software-v60
    Tesla must have a list somewhere...

    I had to Google to find out what you were referring to. Lol. I don't think it was quite at that level. I'm never afraid to be wrong as long as I've civilly been corrected and there was some sense of reason for why I felt like I originally did. Now if we can only convince others not to take things personally!! :cool:
