    Faster P100D #s coming soon? Can't wait to see what this latest tease has to offer.

    Still Waiting for the upgrade option to appear on the website.

    VERY exciting! Love a company that can embed easter eggs and not take itself too seriously, especially one that unlocks more performance :)

    Why would Tesla not enable this when the P100D was announced, do you think they wanted to 'test' the new batteries with the initial P100D's, get data, then unleash the full power? That's what I would do if I was a tad unsure on how the new batts. would perform.

    Probably extra testing and validation. Some of the first owners to take delivery of P100Ds had their deliveries delayed a few weeks for extra testing and validation. This new cooling system and battery module is brand new after all...

    This is exciting. I'm very curious to see what it does.

    I guess its more mid to high speed acceleration, since I don't think 0-60 could be much quicker. Maybe something like a ≤10.5 second quarter mile, if only by a bit.

    Seems logical. I don't recall that they ever made a quarter mile claim for the P100DL. They do state 2.5 sec to 60mph and 1.2 sec from 45 to 65 mph. So it's reasonable that they would keep those claims and increase acceleration above 65 mph. Maybe they'll publish a 0-100mph time or quarter mile time?

    Hopefully whatever performance upgrades are in this Easter egg will be available to all P100D cars. I'd hate to see a repeat of the P90DL fiasco.

    Elon tweeted to fiksgets/Dragtimes that his P100D might get the Easter egg earlier, before his Nov 13th Dragtimes meet....anyone know anything about this?
