    Reliability of Electric Motors on Track

    Like what? There's no transmission and the battery lasts pretty much forever. Tires, breaks, and suspension aren't prohibitively expensive. Thus the motor(s) are really the primary concern. Anyone know the cost to replace them and how they would handle being pushed to the limit on a regular basis?

    Reliability of Electric Motors on Track

    Hoping someone knows this answer. I've heard that a dozen miles on a track is equivalent to 1,000 normal miles. When it comes to electric motors, how much would someone have to worry if they put a couple thousand miles on the track in a performance model 3? Also, if worst case scenario a motor...

    Performance Model 3 is too cheap - about to drop some truth bombs.

    Unfortunately for Tesla and myself, I won't be buying either - very disapointed

    Performance Model 3 is too cheap - about to drop some truth bombs.

    All due respect to the OP, but the P3D makes absolutely zero sense at it's insanely high price. For less than 5k more you get a fully loaded 75D. Air Suspension, Bioweapon defense mode, unlimited supercharging, better looking, better resale, and overall better car. You literally only lose .7 sec...

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    The Model 3 is meant to be the car everyone can afford. He's got half a million pre orders even with a 2 year wait - he has all volume he needs to keep prices down. Elon himself said the options would be cheaper - they aren't. This is a bait and switch plain and simple

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    The prices will still be silly. The 35k price was BS - this is a giant bait and switch. Everything else that you'd want is just priced insanely high. Who charges 5k for AWD on a 35k car? That's more than what it was for the S since the S included air suspension as well

    5k for AWD? Not a good day unfortunately - Elon broke his word on that one. 29k extra for performance? Just silly

    It should not be that expensive - stupid move. Really disappointed at how they are pricing things. Loyalty for Tesla is fading

    Thanks Chrisanne - posting this question to your new thread actually. Now that XPEL has released XPEL Ultimate Plus, is it possible to do a full comparison of it to scotchgard pro?

    Guesses on "token of appreciation" for line waiters tweeted by Elon Musk

    Should be free supercharging. Or how about not making the line waiters wait until July-October for AWD on the east coast. It won't even be an option for line waiters due to the tax credit schedule.

    "There will be something special", Who does this apply to?

    They should give the sight unseen line waiters free supercharging. Easy, cheap, and great

    Fully optioned Model 3 price in USD?

    i hope they max it out at no more than 70k. Prices over that cant be justified for normal people no matter how hard you try (and I'm trying! :)) Price for volume Elon!!
