    I have a 2016 P100D with Insane mode (not ludicrous). I called Tesla support and was told that even though it's a software config, they won't allow an upgrade. She checked around with multiple people trying to get a different answer, but sounds like there's no upgrade path.

    Such a bummer.

    And I thought all 100's were long after every P had L standard... where is that spreadsheet with the timeframes for the options, as I'm totally confused. This car had to be late last fall, no? Was Ludicrous still an option then?

    I bought it in December 2016 as an inventory car.

    It seems a few cars were sold in Q4 2016 without ludicrous. It wasn't an option in online orders, however inventory cars were sold this way offering the buyer 10k off the price to increase sales.

    I thought this also included a higher power contactor relay (?)

    These cars were P100DLs that had Ludicrous, but then had the config removed over-the-air. At the time I was told I could enable it whenever I wanted with an update.

    Any thoughts on what I can do?
