Saw this parked today. I this for real or just stickers?
It is a real sticker.
That wasn't the question. The question is "is it real" i.e. an actual P75D. Anyone can buy real emblems from the Tesla parts counter.
My vote is that it's not real since Tesla has never sold or advertised a P75D.
Yeah, I always heard that the larger battery was required in order to get the performance numbers that the P90D and the P100D can achieve.
When I first saw this, I did a search and cannot find anything on Tesla offering this ever. So I suspect it's a silly sticker job from a new Tesla owner not realizing what they are doing.
Which is what exactly?
I think they are realizing what they're doing. Making a joke.
I laughed because everyone at work acts like I drive a "P"70D, even though some of their cars cost just as much if not more than mine...
There was also that British magazine review recently of a Model S which kept referring to the car as a "P70D" I think. Does bring me back to the 75kw announcement though... I was really hoping the bigger battery would knock a few tenths off the 0-60 time.
There's no reason to believe they couldn't produce a P75D. It just wouldn't have the same level of performance as the P85D but there's no reason they couldn't bump the 75 battery up to a 1600 amp fuse.
The only P models Tesla has sold have been 85s, 90s, and now 100s. There's no such thing as a P75D. Someone is just having a laugh.
The smaller battery pack cannot put the wattage out needed to achieve the same performance. That's why the 90D is faster than the 60D and 75D.
Wishful thinking but maybe this is a Model 3 chassis being tested with a Model S shell on it
Doubt they would advertise it, but one could hope
I too hope they're already secretly testing the (pardon the language) crap, out of some/most of the m3 components already (software, displays, drive units, etc).
This was taken on a military base. Im fairly certain this is not a test mule.
That's funny. If I had 60, I would make it a P60D just for laughs.
I thought the model 3 was going to be a smaller car. How would a model s shell fit into a smaller model 3 chassis?
HA! Now I want to put P40D on mine and watch people at super chargers try to figure it out.
Isn't that what I said
This is exactly what a Tesla employee told us when we visited the Fremont factory in July. That you likely won't see any M3 mules driving around (at least not for a while), because they will be well disguised as Model S. You'll have to look inside for M3 clues.
And even if it were a M3 in MS skin, they surely wouldn't badge it as a potential M3 trim line.
There are enough numbers from the various version that you could do something like a P57D+
Someone previously tried to convince the world that his chrome coloured P85D+ was real. Didn't really fool anyone, but he was very insistent. Some people just have to be "special"
Wouldn't the wheelbase be shorter on the M3 frame?
