    I noticed yesterday all P100D inventory cars now show a 0-60 of 2.7sec instead of the usual 2.5. If you go to the Tesla website and create a custom order, the 0-60 time is the correct 2.5sec. This must be a small oversight or it could be worse.

    I saw that post too. Perhaps Tesla is going to change 100D to low 3 seconds, have a P100D option at 2.7, AND another vehicle in the low 2 seconds? Maybe 2.3ish?? Who knows.

    One possible explanation is that these inventory cars have ludicrous mode software disabled/removed. They did this last year to push inventory sales, offering 10k off for not having ludicrous.

    I would dislike it if the new inventory P100D's were throttled back to 2.7sec.

    No, the spec sheets show the car as having Ludicrous Speed Upgrade (e.g. Model S P100D 5YJSA1E4XHF214238 | Tesla)

    Note that the 2.5 to 2.7 second difference could also be explained as the same difference between 0 to 60 MPH and 0 to 100 KPH.

    A new king of 0-60 must be on the way, Gimping the existing fleet and discounting to make the latest and greatest look the most appealing to speed hounds. I hope they make a bunch of changes rather than just increasing speed.

    At this point, I'd rather have an interior refresh and suspension upgrade or a performance suspension option, rather than just pure speed.

    However, I won't complain if they change the motors, inverters, battery capacity, interior and other options all at once.

    I just bought an inventory P100 last eve and the spec here is 2.7sec for 0-100km. Which is essentially 2.54 0-60 miles.

    For us in the US it's still showing 2.7. Must be an oversight.
