1) Is the only difference between 90D and P90D the ability to accelerate at a faster rate and the possibility of the real spoiler in the P version? While cool and all for $20k price differential that seems awfully expensive. I can't imagine really needing that acceleration and using it in normal driving.
2) Tesla states that 90D will ship in mid-2016. Do others think that is being conservative and it might ship faster or may this date further ship? I can't imagine that of the 20k-30k reservations that a huge number of those want P90D or P90DL. Suppose of 30k reservation holders 5k want a P version. Then that implies one of two things:
a) Assuming June start for 90D delivery then they are only producing 5000 units/ 5 months = 1000 units /month which seems quite low. That means they are building only 250 units/week.
----- OR ----
b) They can ramp up production faster and get to producing 90D faster than they are committing to in the configurator.
Of course all of this is determined by how many P versions people want. So another question is
3) How many P versions of the Model X do you think people want in the reservation list? Do we know some similar statistics from the Model S?
