    Tracking P85D Next Generation Seats Delivery Thread

    As if we didn't have enough tracking, delivery and general complaint threads I thought I'd start another one.

    This one is for those of us waiting on the Next Generation Recaro Seats to be retrofitted in our new P85D. I got the Nappa Seats in mine (both front and back) and while they are actually nice seats (love the feel of the leather compared to my previous performance seats) i can't wait to get the seats I ordered (and paid for).

    I would think that unless Tesla has just completely written off all the seats (Nappa, Performance and others) that they have "temporarily" installed in hundreds of cars that it would behoove them to get the next gen seats to us as quickly as possible in order to minimize the wear and tear on the seats they will be repossessing.

    My DS could not give me any indication on a time frame as to when I could expect to get the seats. Frankly, I'd rather that answer than just a wild a$$ guess that has little chance of being correct. Please post any definitive information you may have or you may get as to when we can expect to get our Next Generation Seats...

    Tracking P85D Next Generation Seats Delivery Thread

    I'm in Alaska and learned my P85D that finished production yesterday will have front next gen seats and old style rears. What a huge shipping expense (both ways) along with flying a ranger here... I'm not complaining, whatsoever, but just acknowledging the logistics involved.

    No need to rub it in!

    Congrats and as I posted in the other thread, I'll just look at it as getting a new car again when I finally get the new seats!

    I really don't understand Tesla's logic in many situations.
    P85D Black, Grey next gen seats, black alcantara headliner, matte obeche trim, 21" silver summer, 21" winters, all options but 3rd row, HPWC installed.

    I took delivery today - Nappa Tan seats front and back. I was told at delivery to expect the Next Gen seats in March or April.

    Guess I was wrong! My awesome DS in Seattle snapped these for me before my P85D's boat ride north:





    No heated steering wheel for my Alaskan fingertips, though! :P

    Congrats! I don't know why Alaskan cars have no heated steering wheel, though I heard it was because they come through Seattle. I picked up mine there and was told no PacNW cars get heated steering wheels "currently", though the DS' continue to plead the case

    I am among those who received next gen in front and nappa in the rear. Because I don't normally carry rear passengers and because the next gen rear seats block the view out the rear view mirror, I'm questioning having the rear seats installed at all.

    One thing to do is to test drive a P85D with next gen rears before I have the new seats put in.

    What do you think?
    ​P85D delivery at Fremont 12/31/14, red/tan.
