    Out of curiosity, how many p85d owners in the U.S. Have actually been able to go beyond 132. I have the latest .250 and have never been able to do so. I'm wondering if it is because I am running my 19 in wheels. I have factory 21 in turbines which came on the car that I haven't yet put back on for the summer. After many attempts under various conditions I'm always capped at 132.

    I saw 137 mph crossing Nevada in May and I was still picking up speed when I "chickened out" and backed off....

    How man KW are being pulled continuously at 137 MPH? Is it a lot more than the 112 KW we briefly see supercharging on an almost empty battery?

    my S85 is capped at 140 I believe, but I've also chickened out around 114.... or you know... lived to tell about it.

    My P85D capped out at 130mph (foot to the floor) @ 100F around Mojave, CA with Range Mode on. Note that the vehicle was loaded (3 humans + scooter + luggage).

    I was on .236 firmware at the time.

    The road that goes to the Tesla Giga Factory is I presume private property. Tesla should make that the first Autobahn of the US without speed limits so those visiting for Giga Factory tours can test their max speed limits :)
