    I hope it isn't the neural net. Not sure what the thing is doing, but maybe someone should check if there aren't any games on it's server. Making it play tic-tac-toe against itself might work though...

    Up until recently all inventory 100D in Europe had 0-100km/h speced to 3,3. Now there still are several cars with that spec, but now a S100D appeared in France with 4,3 sec to 100 speced. So this means that the performance figure somehow is connected to a specific vehicle, determined by some sort of code, since right now there are 100D inventory cars with 3,3 sek spec and 4,3 sec spec.

    Ah... no. Speculation has now officially gone off the deep end. Sorry, but its pretty clear by now that its just web typos.

    I suspected it can. As I have a loaner 100D that felt much faster than my current uncorked/ performance updated 75D. Definitely under 4s eventough I have not measure it. I have tested my 75D enough time to notice the difference of 75D and 100D.

    Sounds like Tesla is moving ahead too fast for some people. They can't keep up. I really hope this doesn't deter Tesla. I hope Tesla doesn't start adopting archaic ICE car manufacturer mentality - adding extra buttons and making you pay more - renaming things - putting USB capability years after its become standard and get you to pay thousands more b/c it is "new technology."

    Looks like Tesla is doing the opposite - they are improving - giving you a better product without waiting years to add that "CD player."

    Still anxiously awaiting the 0-100 kph times on your "3.3 sec" car....

    I was quite overwhelmed by all the events/impressions this weekend. Friday night our basement was partially flooded. It was certainly not a nice experience. Fortunately just in time Saturday morning we were able to locate the cause. Then a hurry 200+ kilometres to Tilburg. Wow-wow-wow what a great customer care there! Then my first drive alone, it is a post somewhere. This experience was such a contrast with the terrible flooding!

    Then what you all here want to know: Saturday evening late, after going out for dinner, I did full throttle with four adults in the cabin, and then I knew: for sure this is not 0-100 in 3.3s! But yesterday afternoon with only a 11-year boy in the front seat and his mother in the backseat there were those gigles I recognized from the YouTube P85D videos :D. We had a little race with a Jaguar after supercharching in Amsterdam. We won sooo easily. So then I began to doubt: it is certainly not impossible that he is more quick than 4.3s, but that's all I can say now.

    Drove 485 kilometres in total. I will wait with the PowerTools measurement till the weather is not stormy here, anymore...

    I just did last Sunday’s 0-100 again, but from memory, eyes closed. The iPhone stopwatch halted at 4.28 sec, an amazing agreement with the Tesla configurator isn’t it! So I wouldn't bet anymore my 100D is doing 3.3s, am sorry for you all!

    We can always hope Tesla actually does something in Q4 to truly differentiate 100D specs from 75D

    Are you hoping its retroactive or retrofitable? Because when has they ever been the case?

    All 85/90D's were retroactively increased by ota update to 4.2 sec 0-60 from 5.2. It has happened in the past.

    I thought it was just p85d and p100d which got upgraded .01, which I personally consider neglible aside from bragging and racing.

    Are you going to press them on the performance that they specified for the car?

    I reached out to an order associate at my nearest service center about the acceleration specification of the European 100D models. For two weeks he has failed to receive an answer one way or the other from Tesla headquarters on the matter. It should be a simple matter if the specification were an error or typo. I am presuming that there is a reason that headquarters does not want to answer.

    I think I have pretty convincing evidence that this whole thing is some kind of DB error or typos on the websites.

    The Tesla website in Switzerland is available in 3 languages (French, German and Italian).

    There's a 100D listed on the site and the 0-100 Kph times change depending on the language! For the same car, of course!

    So here you go. This is the version in German, showing 3.3s:
    Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 11.20.32.png

    The Italian version also shows 3.3s:
    Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 11.20.48.png

    However, the French version says 4.3s:
    Screen Shot 2017-09-12 at 11.20.12.png

    Here are the links to the three listings. Notice that only the country/language part of the link changes:

    German: Model S 100D 5YJSA7E25HF203469 | Tesla Schweiz

    Italian: Model S 100D 5YJSA7E25HF203469 | Tesla Svizzera

    French: Model S 100D 5YJSA7E25HF203469 | Tesla Suisse

    So there you have it folks...
