    Those considering one of Tesla’s higher end vehicles will be delighted to find that the company has lowered the price of the 100D and P100D versions of the Model S and Model X. A Model S 100D with 100 kWh battery pack now has a base price of $94,000, down $3,500. Tesla’s top-of-the-line Model S P100D...

    I think the buyers at this level(can afford 100D and P100D) would appreciate upgrades/improvements vs. discounts. Could take a page from Apple's playbook here: never discount but offer new features etc. with every new release.

    You can peruse TMC for the endless wishlist of stuff/improvements people would like to see in a Tesla. How about adding some of these features as standard to the high-end models and hold the price where it is? I think customers would be more enthusiastic about this(more cool whiz-bang stuff) over a small discount and I'm certain it would increase margins for Tesla as well...seems like a win win vs. a meh discount and no new features.

    as the technology matures and production of components rise the prices will inevitably come down a bit.
    I remember the prices for the first flat screen plasma TVs were in the $4k plus area, now decent flat screens can be had for a fraction of the costs of the original tvs. the same scenario played out with mobile phones. While the price decreases for the tesla probably will not be as dramatic, innovation, competition will force reductions in prices.

    Yeah, but I doubt P100D customers are in the "wait for tech to come down in price then I'll purchase" crowd.

    encouraging waiting wasn't my point of the comment, I and many others bought a $5k plasma tv, a $1500. cell phone and a higher priced tesla.
    early adapters aren't driven by price points.
