    Before I bother Tesla, I want to know if it is the same everywhere. So I am on an interstate highway and I noticed that the maximum speed I can travel is only 85 mph. I am on a full charge also. Is this normal for model S75 or could mine be faulty?

    Your car may be in demo or valet mode. I know those have limited speed/performance. Especially if it is a showroom car you purchased, that would probably explain it. As I understand, in addition to top speed limit, it also has a limit of about 100kw (check the energy graph) output in full acceleration.

    That'd be my guess

    You should call service today (weekend) & have them correct it over the air..... It's a beautiful day in Maryland for a (full-speed) Sunday drive!!

    Should be 155 mph, right? Or only 140 mph?

    I had an extended test drive two weeks ago with a 90D where I was able to take the car for a 2 day period. I found out within about 15 minutes that I was electronically limited to 85mph. I was hoping for at least 88 a la Back to the Future but I guess that would be asking for too much. I'm sure that its an easy fix for the service center to solve that problem.

    i am 100% certain my P100D could break 200mph with a second gear. it's got far more power than some other 200mph cars.

    Thank you all. As DaveM140 pointed out, I called the Service Center yesterday (Sunday) and before I could explain what the issue is, the lady on the other end seemed to understand exactly what the issue is and removed the limitation over-the-air. You all are awesome. Pictures of my Blue Dragon coming up shortly

    Here it is. I just need to find some more customization like Tesla image on door handles, etc.

    Hi BuniBunie,
    If you are looking to customize, you might want to buy the Evannex wheel rim protectors. I picked up two sets today at the post office. They glue onto the edges of the wheel and protect you against curb rash. They look good. $99 for one set. I bought two sets.
    Probably go with black for your pretty blue car.
