On a more serious note, It cannot come as a surprise that they have to slash the battery current as the batteries get older. Internal resistance goes up and they will catch fire otherwise.
And 620 kg of batteries per car (Model S 100D) that cannot be recycled economically. Approx. 5% is recycled today, the rest is going into landfills or "storage".

Planned obsolescence at its best.
Wrong is evil and must be defeated. - Jeff Ello
