I’m biased as I have a performance 3 so it gets my vote however an AWD with the extra power boost is really quick too.

Hey - Aren't you also a stock holder? :blush: Upsell is everything !

On another note of this, which has more profit it in it for Tesla? The P or the AWD with P-boost?


NOTE - Post updated to properly spell "Stock" however this disclaimer left so that those with fun gifs in their replies don't look like the crazy ones! And just a side note, until we get some better telepathy software that can translate my thoughts my posts will have typos that I correct later :cool:

I think the range hit is due solely to the heavier 20" wheels and performance-oriented tires.

The sport wheels are heavy! Even the Zero-Gs are only 1lb lighter but make no difference. There's a reason that Tesla drag racing YouTuber does so well: he's removed all the inside bits to reduce weight. I'm sure my car would go faster if I did the same, put on lighter wheels, took off the 60lb tow hitch etc... ;)

These cars are already stupid fast. Unless anyone is tracking their car just enjoy the looks over all else is generally my motto.

I need to get on the treadmill and get rid of my 60lb tow hitch.

My P3D+ would probably be quicker.

( I'm aging myself calling my car a P3D+. These young kids don't know what that is. LOL ).

It’s a total pet peeve of mine but there is no such thing as a P3D. It’s an M3P (Model 3 Performance).

I’m not even sure how or why that naming convention took off.

If it’s a play on P100D from the S/X then the Model 3 Performance would be a P75D.
