Hello all,

I noticed the turning radius changed on the 2017 model, it went from 20.35 to 19.4. Does anyone kmow what Tesla did to accomplish this? Has anyone driven both and noticed the improvment?

I had a 2016 and have a early 2017 now. I l haven’t noticed it being any better or more driveable. I can’t speak to he 2017.5 models that had a battery change and motor change though
