    Am curious if there is some sort of limit somewhere I should be looking at; however, today was driving for there first time on the freeway and it won't move past 85MPH - any suggestions as to what I should look at?

    Demo and loaners are often limited, to 80 I think. Are you a new owner? Check with your service center.

    Was this an inventory car perhaps? They may have it in Service Limit mode, which tops out at 85 mph. There is no indication that it is in this mode. Your local service center can correct this.

    Yup, it was an inventory car - good call. I'll give them a call tomorrow, thank you!

    I'd almost like to turn that on in my S with a user controlled speed.

    My 2003 Saab 9-3 had a speed warning that would sound an audible at whatever you set it to. I know you can use cruise control but often on my commute home I like to actually drive and this car is is quick so looking down I usually see 88 mph unintentionally.

    Feature request: user controlled speed warning/limit that can easily be changed/disabled without a password in the event of a true need to ever go that fast.

    I have a loaner that is limited to 80mph. Happy to have it, but it is weird to feel the power drop off right as you hit 80mph. Of course I have cars climbing all over my backside in the carpool lane with no place to go. I am one of those who doesn't cross the double yellow lines, and welcomes removing all double yellows, as they impede the logic of being able to judge when it is best to enter and exit a carpool lane.

    With LA traffic, you often need more than ¾ mile to get from the car pool lane to your exit. Sigh, sorry, off topic.

    I've heard various damned Canadians other fer'ners asking for them new-fangled speed-limiters. If God (Elon) had meant us to limit our speed he wouldn't have created the MS (In The Beginning) with a top speed of 155. ;););)

    Just call the 800 number and speak to Tech support folks, Our 2014 inventory car had the limit turned on when we bought it. They were able to remove the limit over the air while we sat in the car. It was surreal, the tech on the phone said please pull over and stop the car, it won't let me update it while it's moving, we stopped at the next exit, pulled into a lot, and he made the change in just a few seconds. The car has been flawless since. Enjoy your ride!

    Did you have TACC/autosteer on? TACC allows a max speed of 90mph, which is near-enough what you were doing (see p72 of the manual) .

    You can get it to lock in at 82mph if you can find a good hill.

    the tacc will not stop or slow down the car when 90MPH is exceeded, you get the red screen of death and the system shuts down.

    tesla has the ability to limit the speed of the loaners to 80 mph.

    That must be annoying, having to time travel back to the point just after you sped up to 88 MPH. Be careful, you don't want temporal security after you ;)
