2013 Tesla Model S P85: 12.417 @ 111.570 MPH
Performance 85kWh, custom 19" Forgestar c5fv wheels, white/black/CF, pano,sound,tech,twin chargers!
Great news on the range and even better news that this should confirm that there are no barriers to starting production in January as promised.
P3,339: 60 kWh, blue/gray/lacewood, 19 inch wheels, tech package, sound package, air suspension
Delivered: February 8, 2013
My 85 kWhr battery is doing >310 miles rated ideal range - which I believe is going by the EPA #'s (It started at 270mi showing I think, but that was from the factory and they said they did a full charge - now it is higher )
The 60 might be enough that I could get to a supercharger, cool
Hmmm this makes the 60kwh pretty appealing to me, while I never though I would spend 25k or more on a car, it will make me feel better that I am getting one that is 80k and not 90k.
Has the Tesla site been updated with this? I don't see any changes.

The only mention of the 265 miles back then was in Elon/JB's blog post: Model S Efficiency and Range | Blog | Tesla Motors
So, there may be a blog post about the 60 kWh 208 mile rating but, not sure.

This bodes well for the 40kw too. I suspect the power limiting of the smaller packs is helping extend range. Since the EPA 5 cycle test has a more aggressive driving profile, the slower acceleration may help a little. Until full specs are provided, hopefully the smaller packs are also lighter.

Anyone know the weight difference between the 85 and 60? It must be significant given the gain in efficiency.
