Model S Changes from 2012 to 2019
We’ve identified most of the visible changes made between the 2012 and 2019 Model S. We know there are thousands of additional small and not-so small changes out of sight. Not shown are the extensive software updates and new features, since these changes are mostly included in all cars regardless of age.

Model S Changes from 2012 to 2019 | TeslaTap
 
- Tri-Motor for Plaid option

- prep for 4680 (no module, no separate battery pack) structural battery
- usual annual maintainence of production line

- some other improvement we don't yet know about (heat pump? which would require many changes)
even this may be too expensive to re-do right now - costs do matter.

- casting for front & rear frame - same as Model Y (least likely as of high cost to change on low volumes)

De buitenkant van de S vind ik nog steeds prima maar voor zo'n auto verwacht toch echt meer luxe en vooral ook de vaste middenarmsteun is irritant. De S/X had allang een vergelijkbare middenconsole als de 3/Y moeten krijgen.

Dat vind ik nu juist heerlijk aan de classic S: geen versnellingsbak, dus geen noodzaak voor een middenconsole, dus de mogelijkheid van... niets. Gewoon lekker niets. Jammer wanneer die ruimte nu toch weer wordt dichtgezet met bekerhouders, opbergvakjes enz. Very 2012.

Ik refreshte zojuist de MCU van mijn S terug naar factory settings en kijk eens aan: ineens ben ik in Palo Alto, Californie! Toch een leuk uitstapje in lockdowntijd.
