    For fellow Model S P85D owners that are planning on getting a Model X - are you thinking of a Model X 85D or P85D? Or 70D?

    Model X 85D - maximum range (250 miles?), probably $20k less expensive, you still have your Model S P85D when you want to "have fun".
    Model X P85D - insane mode 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds?, bragging rights, earlier delivery, less range (230 miles?) but still enough for daily usage?
    Model X 70D - save another $10k, later delivery, much less range (220 miles?) but still enough for daily usage? Still have your Model S P85D when you want to "have fun".

    Of course, this assumes the Model X uses the same batteries and motors as the Model S. There is also the possibility that the Model X P85D won't use the larger rear motor, but rather it might use the same medium sized motors as the 85D but with upgraded inverters (i.e. Model X P85D might not be the same motor configuration as the Model S P85D) resulting in less of a performance improvement compared to the 85D, maybe 0-60mph in the low 4's or high 3's.

    Our X will be my wife's primary car, and the car we take on road trips. I still travel into no supercharger land, so we will probably opt for the vehicle with the longest range. Even if cost was no object, we don't have a need for two P85D equivalents.

    Hello,

    Regular person here. I'm just trying to get my first Tesla. & Maybe a model 3 in a few years if I'm lucky.

    Really depends on the Performance of the X PxxxD,

    Most likely will get that and trade-in/sell my P85D, but if the 0-60 goes back to 4 seconds or so, then I might just go for the 85D.

    I'm not sure how much of a choice I will have as a Signature reservation holder.

    As a non P85D owner, but Roadster owner... A Model X will be replacing my wife's Highlander Hybrid in the next few years. We'll be going for max range and road tripping. So a Model X 100D or thereabouts for us. No performance mode necessary.

    We'll be going for whatever has the longest range, since the X will become our main vehicle.

    EDIT:

    (My reading comprehension is off tonight, as I just noticed this was open to current P85D owners)

    Sorry for skewing the results!

    +1 And most importantly, it will become our main road tripping vehicle.
