    Looking at the configurator are the NextGens gone? Also has anyone experienced the difference between the NextGens and the new seats (i.e. Comfort Level)? I believe they're listed as premium?

    I remember reading an article that said they were insourcing their seats. The premiums are most likely the next gen replacements. The pictures look similar with large bolsters and support.

    Yes, next gen were replaced with premium. The premium are essentially model X seats. So I presume it saves costs by having them all the same.

    NextGen seats were made by recaro. Premium is made by Tesla. Imho, having now owned Teslas with all 3 seats variants, I much prefer the premium.

    I tried both the NextGen (in a floor model Model S) and the Premium (in the Model X) and much prefered the NextGen, so much for that it was the deciding factor of going with an Inventory car vs custom build.

    The NextGen were noticeably sportier, more bolstered, especially the seat/thigh bolsters. The Premium did seem slightly more comfortable from a softness level, but I love the way the NextGen hold you.

    The big difference however was the wear. The Premium looked terrible, the seat area was very wrinkled/warped and I have a feeling it was due to the perforations since the surface isn't as "rigid".
