    Nope. The late-2013 ones use a proprietary PCIe interface. Not even PCIe SSDs in the market (like the XP941) will fit into the late-2013 ones, because Apple uses a proprietary non-NGFF/M.2 blade design for their PCIe drives.

    Not yet due to the PCIe interface. I wonder if we'll ever see any.

    Thanks to OWC, we're now i upgrade heaven! They now have PCI-e drives up to 2 TB for all the rMBP models. Only catch is to get the higher speed Aura Pro upgrades (the only line with 2 TB drives), you have to upgrade to High Sierra. It's apparently a firmware thing...
