    Just curious, there's been reports of the Model X 75D doing 0-60 faster than the advertised 6 sec... possible that the Model S 75D is also slightly quicker than advertised?

    Anyone have any 0-60 numbers they can share or anecdotal experience comparing to a 2015 model?

    I suspect the magazine article measuring 5.5 seconds for the X75D vs the 6.0 Tesla listed is the whole "with rollout" discussion, but I don't have proof.

    Perhaps but I think rollout adds .3 sec, which would still be under their guidance. Also there's a YT video of a 0 to 60 at exactly 5.8 sec which lends credence to the theory.

    Probably just the difference of running premium vs regular electricity. ;)
