What evidence do we have that the P85D's top speed limitation will be changed in firmware 6.2?
None. We've been told that it would be in a future firmware update, and 6.2 is a future firmware update. However, there's been no discussion of the speed update being in 6.2 that I'm aware of.
In the most recent press conference, Elon said it is coming in 6.2 Tesla Motors Press Conference: OS 6.2 Adds Range Assurance, Trip Planner to Tackle Range Anxiety - Transport Evolved
Huh. I don't remember hearing that in the actual audio transcript, but the article you linked is certainly very clear on what they think is coming.
Interesting that the press kit doesn't mention it.

Hmmm, interesting - the press release originally _did_ have a statement that:
See Tesla Model S End-Of-Range-Anxiety Announcement, P85D Top Speed Increase and Valet Mode for a copy.
Yah. I thought I saw that too, that's why I went back to that link to find it. Interesting...
Also interesting that the "P85D Top Speed" part of that capture wasn't in bolt. Perhaps that's a symptom of an editorial misstep including it in the 6.2 list.
I hope it comes along soon enough... I've got some track days in mind this summer!

I just noticed that Model S Design Studio | Tesla Motors has the top speed asterisk only on the P85D. Similarly the commentary for the asterisk specifically calls out the P85D configuration.
Does the 85D currently allow 155mph (with 6.1)?
Unfortunately, it was raining at the track on Sunday. I was hoping to find out then. ;-)

Ah, no - fine print at the bottom of the page states that the P85D is currently electronically limited to 130 mph, with an OTA in the coming months to up it to 155.
It did mention it, but they removed it for some reason (as I said in the other thread)
Well, it didn't happen in 6.2 but it seems they've dropped the asterisk on the top speed line on the Design Studio page...
I believe there was evidence elsewhere that vehicles in Germany have the higher speed, possibly since 6.1 ...200. Not sure if some of those articles relate to other countries where the speed may have been raised.
They don't. Only the (S)85D has a 155 mph top speed.
"The top speed for P85D is now 155 mph" was mentioned in the press release, but they quickly removed any hint of it soon after.
Fixed in 6.2 (2.4.153)
Now I just need to find a place to test it
It should base on this:
That's 757 HP!!
Where is that picture from? Thats not how the german design studio looks now.
P85D to get 768PS??
