    Perhaps international, but not in the US. Prices are the same as far as I can tell in the USA.

    You mean in the EU? Maybe adjustments for the Euro?

    It's the Tesla penalty on those who use Internet Explorer. Use Chrome or Firefox instead.

    Dead serious. Try it out.

    Tried it and you are right! Looking at details it adds $5K for AWD if you use IE.

    Well, which of the prices is right?

    Sama thing in Finnish site. With IE price is 5500 euros more than with Chrome.

    Unsurprisingly, it seems the price in IE is the anomalous one.

    Apparently lower price is right. When you change AWD to RWD price drops 2 times AWD’s price.

    Sorry, could not resist.

    All browsers FireFox, Chrome and Opera show 85k. Even in IE, if you go to show selected options it will say 85k. So most likely a display bug in IE, nothing uncommon.

    Spartan/Edge also shows it as 90k.

    Your quote from Martin Eberhard may be apt after all...

    IMHO the fact that people using Chrome can get a significantly lower price is strong evidence that Tesla and Google are planning on a merger very soon. Look for the iPhone app to be shut off.

    What happens in IE if you clear you cache?

    That is funny......
    The issue is the IE code has an error (obviously nothing to do with IE) that adds an additional $5000 cost for All-Wheel Drive for the 85D when that should be included.
    Look at the [show selected option] to verify.
    Nothing more...

    Yep. I identified it first thing yesterday morning in another thread. It says AWD is +$5000 but then it adds (or subtracts) $10000 when selecting/deselecting AWD.

    It is not a caching issue. It is an issue with the code when run in IE. I've tried it on multiple computers and the bug always happens in IE. It doesn't happen in Chrome or Firefox.
