    Anyone thinking of changing?

    4WD and 3.2s to 60.

    I'm sorely tempted by the P85D+!

    Any ideas on UK deliveries?

    To my knowledge the "P85D+" doesn't exist publicly, but "P85D" does and will be offered to buyers soon.

    Ah, yes, seems the + has been replaced by the D.

    "+" used a staggered setup to improve grip.
    D solves grip problem with AWD.
    Less need for extra tire width in the rear.

    I was at West Drayton the other day and they say the P85D will be the first 'D' to be delivered, and it should be with customers in the UK by the start of next summer. Tesla really didn't think about memes when they named this... or maybe they did! (S III X)

    Yep, I've been told to expect mine June/July 2015.

    Incorrect. The D includes all of the suspension changes and staggered wheels included with the now discontinued plus.

    I'll believe it when I see it in design studio.
