    Hi there... I've already done a search but I can't seem to find a conclusive answer.

    Has any successfully downgraded their Center Console S to the older style yacht floor?

    I've got a 2016 Facelift S with the center console. After driving a loaner with the Yacht floor my wife and I have decided it fits our usage scenario much better than the center console. I've found directions to remove the center console, but what isn't clear is if there is a Yacht floor underneath, or if you'd need to buy those components, or if an actual downgrade is really feasible/doable.

    Here is the research I've found.

    Has anyone figured out how to remove the Premium Center Console?

    Might be interested in this as well, I like the center console but for me personally I don't have a "need" for it really and liked the open feel of the yacht floor of my previous P85D. Was always an ahh moment when people got in and were like oh it's so open.

    No you will need to purchase the yacht floor from tesla service center. I'm sure you could sell the centre console too. My car came with the yacht floor and tesla swapped it out for the centre console so definitely doable.

    You would have to swap it out with the older style center console. They're cheaper than the one you have. You can buy a used one and sell yours and even make some money.

    eBay may be a good place to start.

    I would love to do this. The center console in my mind is a downgrade from the excellent yacht floor.

    Problem is there are no figured ash yacht floors. Although there might be an obeche yf around somewhere. Hmmmm.

    Maybe get a vinyl wrap graphic printed for it to give the same effect?

    What exactly is a Yacht floor? Google image search reveals nothing more than a center console that is shallower and slightly different design. Is that what a yacht floor is? Doesnt appear any more open to me, just looks like one big storage bin.
