    For those who subscribe to WSJ, its article on MS 100D got its price corrected once and it is still in conflict with the web price.

    It says:

    "Corrections & Amplifications
    Tesla’s Model S 100D starts at $93,700, including fees, while the P100D costs $135,700. An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the starting prices."

    If you look at the web, the starting price is $92,500 INCLUDING Destination & Documentation Fee:

    I figure WSJ take $92,500 INCLUDING $1,200 Destination & Documentation Fee and add another duplicated $1,200 for its latest correction for an overpriced of $93,700.

    Would somebody please check whether my math of $92,500 or WSJ's math of $93,700 are correct?

    Thanks!

    Sorry! False alarm. I asked the author who wrote back to me and I did as he instructed: CLICKING the plus sign next to the $1,200 if you want to include that amount. I didn't know I am supposed to click that. Very confusing price set up!

    So the article price quote is correct.

    Yikes, the misleading prices continue to be a big disappointment to me. Show me what my to-my-door cost is (maybe without state sales tax) and then have "adjustments" like tax and gas savings. Talk about YMMV.

    I agree. The setup is very confusing to me. It lists 3 negative signs for credits/savings and one positive sign for fee.

    It makes me think that all those negative and positive signs are already included in the prices.

    WSJ to be taken with a critical eye for truth; mimics FAUX News, another in the family.

    So the headline of this thread "MS 100D price confusion at WSJ ", should really read "MS 100D price confusion by some forum members". ;)

    Would somebody please help me to figure out how Fortune can quote a quite higher price $98,300. May be because it is based on Autoblog instead of Tesla?

    This is an enourmous mistake, I think we should probably call the cops.

    I don't know how grandpa is going to figure out what a base price is if the more the Fortune's reporter work on it a more different base price appears:

    I finally figured it out:

    $92,500 Base +1,000 Paint + 1,500 Glass Roof + 3,300 Interior Color = Fortune's quote of $ $98,300.
