So what makes a Plaid + worth $30k more than a Plaid? [Update: Plaid+ canceled]

... and the plaid is available one month ahead of the long range. .. Well, I guess the title should be, "What makes the Plaid worth $40,000 more."

The Model X Plaid is still a $30k upgrade.

$_80k - Model S - Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive
$120k - Model S - Tri Motor - All-Wheel Drive

$_90k - Model X - Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive
$120k - Model X - Tri Motor - All-Wheel Drive

The Model S Plaid costs now $130k !!! Well, I guess the title should be, "What makes the Model S Plaid worth $50,000 more."

The Model X Plaid is now $10k cheaper that the Model S Plaid ???

Note: Don't the front and rear casting was supposed to suppress about 30% of the assembly lane and thus reduced the manufacturing cost?
Or is it only an effect of supply and demand?

Ok, I am still trying to figure out how Drag Times only got a 2.74s 0-60 time when the battery was charged 94%. There was 3 people but should have barely effected the 0-60 time of this type of car. Any ideas as to why that number was so low?

I find it dubious that Tesla will keep orders open for a defunct product. Makes no sense.

I’m sure they will call and have holdouts cancel or convert. I did. And I got my $1k back.
