    I am about to place an order for a Model X 100D and says it will be late October delivery. This means put it in Q4!

    Do you think they will make an update on the 100D speeds? I know some people haven been saying in Europe it shows they are fasted?

    Any information on this would be awesome.

    The reason I ask is because on my Model S 75D I missed the new speed by 2 days.

    Also, with all the price reductions on the inventory models right now. Is it because they are trying to clear inventory before the end of quarter or refreshing for an update?

    why does tesla make a person paranoid hahah

    if you're in such a rush to purchase, why not get an inventory P100D for the same price

    OP is asking if the cars will be faster (e.g. 0-60 times) not whether they will be delivered faster.

    Ya sorry that's what I meant

    Don't think anyone has any answers probably but just curious. I know the huge discounts right now make me wonder.

    I think it's a mistake, there is old Model S 75D that's sold as used and they are rated at 3,3 sec, have really hard to believe they will update old cars to to that.

    thats what i was confused about too.

    So you are thinking the 100D will stay where it is at? Is it worth waiting another 1 week to order so that way it coincides with the SEMI reveal? Regardless it will be a Q4 delivery.

    There is an inventory 100D model X in Canada showing the updated 4.5second 0-100 sprint already.

    Conjecture with basically all of Europe displaying the new speeds is that an announcement is forthcoming for the S/X 100D.

    Nothing from headquarters officially but if you're taking delivery late Oct, any change announced in the coming weeks you'll likely receive anyway.

    So that is crazy. Do you think it could just be a typo when someone put it since it's only on one car?

    There is only 1 model X inventory 100D avail. The 100D model S are not upgraded speeds as yet. They used to show 4.2 sec but recently they don't show any speed. But in Europe all the models S/X are showing 3.3 and 4.5 respectively. Not just a few.

    Update: found another inventory 100D in Montreal. Same updated 4.5sec

    Well ev CPO shows a few 100d model x's availavle. In the us atleast.

    And I wonder why they can't get the X faster than 4.5. You would think maybe closer to 4 to have more of a difference in the 75d

    They probably can however they won't encroach on the P90D speed of 4.0...that would be a bad marketing move I would think. 4.5 for an SUV is unreal :)

    Not encroaching on the territory of an older but higher performance model is typical Porsche tactic. I don't think Tesla plays this game.
