The lease on my wife's 90D expires in a month, and we want to renew with a new X in time to realize the effect of the $3750 tax credit. I'm sorely tempted by a P100D with the free Ludicrous upgrade, but it would primarily be her car, and she is the sensible type - no need for that acceleration. Almost an aversion to it, in fact. The performance of her 90 was plenty for her, and since we are leasing there is no argument for increased resale value.
As an EV evangelist, I am often making the Tesla pitch with friends and clients, and damn that acceleration is a clincher. I drive our X when I need more room for passengers, so it is often the car that gets the full demo, and I've wished I could share that part of the Tesla experience in the X. Launching to 60 in 2.7s in an SUV would be mind blowing... unless they are still having issues with the shudder?
I have my own 4 year old Model S P85D, but won't replace that until after the rumored refresh. I could afford it, but would never want to spend $20k for Ludicrous. So it's tempting to take advantage of this window to get it for free on one of our cars. (We are operating on the seemingly implausible rumor that the S will be refreshed in September, but not the X, and assuming the free Ludicrous would not extend to any refreshed car - any insights on this would also be appreciated.)
Need advice pronto, we have to act fast. Thanks!
