    Was it a CPO / inventory car? It might still be in demo mode.

    See if you can put it into -- and then take it out of! -- Valet Mode, which would also limit speeds like that (in addition to the test drive mode thing Docal noted). If that doesn't clear it, do call Roadside Assistance and they should be able to help you.

    Yup, your car is in demo mode. Call roadside; they might be able to push a new config remotely. Worst case, your local C or ranger can fix it with a laptop.

    Had same issue, called Tesla support, said: "Hi, I need you to make my car faster." and he knew exactly what I meant, asked me to pull over and put it in park, I did, he did some backend magic then said I should be good to go! I took off, blew past a certain MPH and said yep, that looks good as I double check my rear view mirror.
