    As posted on Telsamotors forum, the German language version of the Swiss ordering page showed higher hp numbers for both motors and a matching higher total horsepower number for the P85D. Here's a screen grab before it was changed. A 10% horsepower boost, delivered over-the-air, would be sweet!

    Probably not, they still refer to "motor power", instead of actual power like the other models. And performance stays unchanged. I'd be more excited if the actual power achievable on a P85D had been leaked instead.

    After this was posted, they updated the page with the same numbers as every other page, with 700 total, but they still us the same terms ("motor-power")

    I bet the Hellcat can't get an OTA update that increases horsepower 10%!
