Has anyone else seen this, Tesla is now advertising the P3D 0-60 time at 3.3 seconds! I just got my VIN allocation so I wonder if this is just for the new cars or if everyone will get to shave off a few tenths of a second via update

They also lowered the price of the White Interior by $500. No option for FSD anymore, whats up with that?

I was gonna ask, when did they lower it to $1,000? Can I get a refund :(
They lowered it today, I'm wondering if I still have to pay the extra 500 for it too, and I wonder about the FSD since I ordered my car with it. My IDS is going to call me tomorrow, i'll ask her these questions and report back

I am curious about the Performance 0-60 time as well.

I heard about the mid-range battery so I was exploring the configuration page and noticed the new numbers. Intrigued!

I wonder if the AWD times improved as well. Maybe it's a v9 thing?

My guess is: neither.

People are seeing 3.2-3.3s in real-world testing. I think Tesla is just updating their advertising to match reality.

But, that's just a guess.
Not sure about that, I've seen plenty of videos where people could only get the 3.5, give or take a tenth. Tesla's not one to advertise a 0-60 and not have it hit that time or go faster. If they advertised at 3.3 and your getting 3.5 some people would lose their minds...lol

I have a feeling it will do 3.0 now with the right conditions. I'm also extremely biased in my thinking because I just got my 2nd VIN and want mine to faster than all of yours...lol :tonguewink:

Fred contacted Tesla, and Tesla has confirmed that there are no hardware or software changes.

We asked Tesla if the quicker acceleration time is due to updated software or hardware, but the automaker says that it is not the case.
The company decided to update the time to match what several reviewers and auto publications, like MotorTrend, have been getting: 3.3 seconds.

Well that's disappointing. Oh well, still plenty fast

I'm coming from a Ram 2500 Diesel so this will still feel like a rocket ship compared to my daily driver...lol
