Bigger battery and uprated fuses required. Definitely both retrofittable, so lots of existing owners and order holders getting very excited on the Tesla fora!

Hmm even more Tesla news has hit my inbox!

From Insane Mode to Ludicrous Speed
The most powerful Model S ever, the P90D, increases power delivery from an insane 3.1 seconds 0-60 time to a ludicrous 2.8 seconds and a sub-11 second quarter mile time.

Increase your range to 300 miles
The new extended range option is an upgrade to the battery pack energy from 85 to 90 kWh for £1,500 on new configurations, which provides about 6% increased range. This makes our longest range model, the 90D, capable of almost 300 miles of motorway range at 65mph.
