P Configurations

I thought it would be interesting to see what configurations we have chosen, especially for the P reservation holders. And, perhaps, why.

I think that there is a similar thread somewhere out there. But, there is no way to search for it. And, what the heck, let's start a brand new one.

My reservation is P 6806, and my configuration is:
- 230 mile battery pack
- black exterior
- black cloth interior
- upgraded audio system
- no other options

Pretty much the basic stuff. The only reason for the 230 mile upgrade (from 160 mile one) is to be on the safe side where I can use a supercharger if needed. And if the supercharger hardware costs more than $3000, I might as well get the 300 mile battery pack.

My concurrent configuration:

60 kWh Battery
White Pearl Paint
Pano Roof
Cloth interior
Air Suspension
Parcel Shelf

P3270

60kw battery
Air suspension
White Pearl
Haven't completely decided on cloth or grey leather
Super charger option

If there is a lease option this will completely change to a more loaded vehicle.

P3327

My Config

Performance
Tech Package
Black / Black/ Carbon Fiber
Silver Wheels
Premium Sound
Pano Roof
Parcel Shelf

Why - I'm going to be in this car for the next 8 years. I don't want to spend those years wishing I had gotten the car i really wanted.

prash.saka, since I've got a reputation to defend... ;-) You may be referring to one of these older threads:

@Volker, yep you do. I don't know how you do it ... but you do :)

I see that, as I suspected, most of the P's are 60kw. Ideally, I'd prefer the 40kw and get all the other upgrades if only for the lack of supercharging for the 40kw.

Here is the count so far:

40kw - 1
60kw - 4
85kw - 2

I have S802 and P6372 reservations. My hope is that I can take my one time deferral on my signature reservation and order the car I really want without having to wait until next Spring to get it. I'd love the opportunity to hear cars with and without premium audio, but am not willing to drop the $$ on it without being completely blown away. I listen to NPR 98% of the time anyway. So first choice would be:
60kw
Blue / Black leather (husbands choice - I like green/tan)
Tech package
19" wheels
Air suspension
Paint armor

If I have to wait an extra three months to get the 60kw though, I will probably get the 85kw and eat ramen for a few years. If I can't take a deferral on a Sig and get an early P instead, I'll probably sell a kidney and get the Sig. And I'll be trolling the wanna trade wheels thread.

I'm almost sure I'm going this way:

85kWh
Tech package
Silver or white or pearl white
Tan
Lacewood
Pano roof
19" wheels
Paint armor

Still contemplating the air suspension due to timing, and my wife wants the upgraded audio for XM. My feeling is why bother when I can just use Pandora. Thougts?

P1675
85 kWh
Silver
black leather/piano black
tech package
sound
air suspension
parcel shelf
twin charger

I'm going to have defer (or even cancel and reorder) to do it, but I want
85 kWh pack
Tech package
Air suspension
Aero wheels
Metallic paint (I have to look at blue, green and brown before decicing)
Leather interior, maybe tan, but probably gray. Also have to see dash colors in person before making a decision.

The stock market in general and TSLA in particular have to go up a lot before my wife gives me permission (and I feel secure enough) to go ahead.

Depends on what you are looking for with XM radio. If primarily for music listening I personally would give it a pass because of the terrible compressed audio. If however you need the specialized channels then go with it
(Even pandora sounds so much better than XM)

That is my thought.

I should have also said twin chargers for my config.

P2595

60kWh
white exterior (not sure if pearl or standard)
black roof
black leather
lacewood (pending how it looks in real life)
tech package
sound
air suspension
twin charger

**may change to an 85kWh depending on the supercharging hardware cost, trade-in value of my current car and interest rates.

Here is the count so far:

40kw - 1
60kw - 6
85kw - 5

Somehow that's what I was thinking. Going for only 100 mile range is a mistake for other manufacturers, you need over 200 to make it really work. Reason why everyone is not getting 85kWh version is simply the $10k difference. $400/kWh is still quite a lot, I'm hoping that goes down to $200-$150/kWh in next five or so years (so that genIII cars would get same or bigger range with fraction of the cost).

I might get the Paint Armor when my wallet recovers!

Paint armor may well be a lot cheaper aftermarket , and often can be part of a package which includes glass treatment, paint protection and leather protection. Especially with white leather and probably worth it if you are keeping the car long term.

Current thoughts for reservation P5903
- 60kW battery
- Sequoia Green paint
- Pano roof
- 19" wheels
- Black leather with lacewood
- Sound studio
- Air suspension
- Paint armor (maybe)
- Supercharge hardware (if the price is reasonable).
If lease option becomes available I will consider bumping up to 85kW

However it is most likely I will defer or completely cancel my order.
There are just too many little "surprises" with the 40kWh version and the car has gotten too expensive.

Really want to keep the price to $65K (after tax credit).

That would be a shame! Watch this, and then reconsider... ;-)

I already watched the shareholder meeting. I won't make my final decision until after a test drive (Mid July). I also know that there is some kind of supercharger news coming but it won't matter for the 40kWh version. The hint at battery swap might make a difference if Tesla will allow me to borrow a 300 mile pack for longer trips. We'll see.
