    It appears, at least as near as I can tell, that the Ludicrous retrofit is no longer available for the Model S P85D and Model S P90D.

    Is this the case?

    Seems that way, from the 'Shop' list for Model S. They were only doing it for original buyers, before something like July, 2015, anyway. An eligible pool that has naturally shrunk.

    Well we've gotten over 200 views of this thread and no one can tell us otherwise.

    All of the CPO inventory for P85D and P90D cars ar sans Ludicrous.

    The only way that you can get Ludicrous right now is if you buy a P100D or if you go through the used market outside Tesla's CPO offerings.

    At $5k, I am certainly glad that I got it when it was available. I'm sure that many others are as well. There aren't very many P85DLs out there.

    And it looks like there won't be any more.

    Nor P90DLs either for that matter.

    The only cars out there with it are:

    1. Retrofitted P85Ds and P90Ds.

    2. Factory ordered P90Ds which are no longer an available factory option.

    3. P100Ds.

    I'm leaning towards keeping my P85DL for a little longer in light of the above.

    Any one have idea how many were done? I've only seen two others in the wild besides mine so I'm guessing it's rare. I've also heard that tesla removes that designation through the CPO program so that makes it all the more rare. I guess I'll keep mine until the interior redesign which is hopefully in 2018

    I just looked on the Tesla website and found several P90D offerings that said they had the ludicrous upgrade.

    On the CPO site?

    Yep. And I think that's the reason why it's disappeared and seems to have been removed from cars that may have had it before they became CPO cars.

    I got a quote from the Burbank service center for a Ludicrous upgrade on our new to us CPO P85D for $5000. That was only a couple of weeks ago, so I think the service centers still do them even if it's not on the website.

    And it appears you don't have to be the original owner, the option is tied to the VIN.
