Owners putting a higher trim badge on is one thing but this is pretty funny

    I saw this in a parking a lot. Guess they are letting their Tesla goals be known.

    Well.... There was a Tesla-Toyota partnership... Perhaps this was a "beta" [emoji14]

    It's really the anti-keying holographic projector that you enable when parking in unfriendly areas.

    People used to do that with GTR badges (on cars that were not Nissan), but it's funny seeing the P85D badge being used. I guess it is a sign of a new era.

    Absolutely. It's both amusing and heartening to see.

    That's hilarious. I bet this is the second car of a P85D household that debadged. It's not that easy to come across the decals.

    Don't know if they sell to just anyone, but they're expensive. The P85 badge itself is $76. Don't know how much the 'P85D' badge costs.

    Personally, I'd like to get the 'X' and create a P90X badge. But maybe they'll reserve that for the Model X.

    Probably because P90D badges are rare. Maybe they can get one from an S60 and rotate the '6' around. :biggrin:

    I am surprised all you Tesla fans missed this - it is clearly a Model X mule in disguise to fool the paparazzi as we know the other X mules are 'fakes'.

    Or it is the revised Model S due out in a year or two or three......

    I had all the badges on my original STi stolen off it while it was in the carpark at work. I feel sorry for whoever's car that badge probably came from.

    One can order them as "parts" but this is NOT cheap. I ordered the single symbol "+" which I am going to add to myP85D when I get the "ludicrous" upgrade and just that single symbol cost $22.xx
