Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, Musk noted that the Plaid mode is “just so good” as reasoning for the cancellation. With the Tesla Model S Plaid already expected to be the fastest production car ever, the minor speed upgrade and added range of Plaid+ with a higher price tag seems to be unnecessary. Many are noting that Plaid+ may have crossed into what Tesla is aiming to do with its highly-anticipated Roadster.

Plaid+ is canceled. No need, as Plaid is just so good.
