Hi @Klaus-rf ; Haven't heard of a plaid model.
For me a Plaid is part of the uniform (not shown in my picture).
Probably doesn't help you, eh?

For Model S now there are three base configurations on the order page: -Dual Motor AWD aka "Long Range Plus" ($63,920*), "Performance" ($86,490*)and Tri Motor All-Wheel Drive aka "Plaid" ($134.490*):

"Model S Plaid includes:

Quickest 0-60 mph and quarter mile acceleration of any production car ever
Acceleration from 0-60 mph: <2.0s
Quarter mile: <9.0s
1,100+ horsepower
Tri Motor All-Wheel Drive
520 mile range

Beginning late 2021"

That's what I'm curious about.

So just to make sure, not sure if you haven't heard or if you are having fun with a little sarcasm, but it's only $158K loaded.

Well it was intended as a little Piper humour - or perhaps Spaceballs. But any quip that has to be explained is clearly not so funny.
But neither is that price! Particularly in Cdn$. And no more driveway delivery. And no Service Centre within 1200 Km.
Glad I'm still delighted with my M3. There's no where here to get to 100 Km/hr within 2 sec. unless you think the car will float.
(Emoji for clarity) ;)

Nice but keeping my S for now. Maybe I’ll change my mind if I sit in a new one and test drive. But looking forward to reviews.

That much $ and you only get half a steering wheel? Och!!
Kidding!
It looks very cool, But I would expect my choice of tartan for the seats as @GDN suggests.
