According Tesla today, they are now building the fastest 0-60 sedan in the world, beating out Porsche and Ferrari. Today people can now order the P100D with Ludicrous mode! This allows this 7 passenger sedan 5 adults / 2 kids to hit 60 in 2.5 seconds according to Tesla's own Blog. The Tesla X P100D can hit 60 in 2.9 seconds. The battery is 300 miles in Ludicrous mode and 315 miles in normal mode.

Tesla says all S and X orders not delivered can upgrade to the 100 battery pack for $10,000 and existing S and X can upgrade for $20,000 to the 100 battery pack. The higher upgrade fee on existing owners is due to disposal of the 90 battery pack.

Tesla goes on to also say that this helps fund development of the Tesla 3.

I always thought that there would be room for custom tuners and now I see we have a first one that is focused on Tesla.

They have all types of custom packages from internals for the cabin, wheels, and more.

      PepsiCo has placed a pre-order for 100 of Tesla's recently released Semi-Truck.  Wal-Mart, J.B. Hunt, and Sysco have also placed orders. Reuters tallies the total so far at 285 units.  Tesla was initially asking for a $5,000 reservation fee, but has since increased that to $20,000.
      Pepsico plans on using the trucks for lighter snack items and fixed routes between distribution centers.  An order of 100 trucks represents about 1% of Pepsi's 10,000 strong fleet. Over 260,000 conventional semi-trucks are produced each year.
      The Tesla Semi has a promised range of 500 miles with 80,000 lbs at 65 mph. Promised performance increases over a conventional diesel include the ability to maintain 65 mph up a 5% grade versus 45 mph for the typical diesel, and an unladen 0-60 time of just 5 seconds and 20 seconds with an 80,000 lb. load.
      The Tesla Semi will go into production in 2019, but test mules have already been spotted in the wild.

      As lawmakers continue to work on comprehensive tax reform, one item related to the automotive industry on the table was the tax credit for electric vehicles.  The credit, which can be up to $7,500, was dropped in the House version of the bill but kept in the Senate version.   The credit was started in 2009 as part of the economic stimulus package as a way to encourage investment by auto manufacturers in the development of electric powered or assisted vehicles.  The the current version of the bill in reconciliation keeps the credit.  Analysts estimate that scrapping the credit would save $200 million over the next 10 years. 
      The credit is capped at 200,000 qualifying vehicle per manufacturer, which no automaker has yet reached. Most manufacturers have announced billions of dollars in investment for sweeping changes to their lineups with many models gaining plug-in hybrid variants over the next 5 to 7 years.
