    Article.

    Are we positive they’re all Performance? Hoping some are AWD only variant.

    So, that news was posted about 9 hours earlier than this on Reddit, and that post has 132 comments and 468 upvotes. Huge news.

    The same news here has 100 views and zero comments (other than this one I guess). So, not to be a jerk, but I'm starting to doubt the usefulness of this forum vs /r/teslamotors...

    I saw the post elsewhere and I don’t get it. I thought you could tell by the VINs if they were AWD. What does ‘rumored’ mean? Don’t we still have digits in the VIN that tell us stuff? :D And I guess I can say the same about P also, but perhaps that’s not been determined?

    You can tell. I'm guessing it means the author didn't feel like entering 6000 VINs to see which ones were AWD and which ones aren't. They just enter random ones and see what ones come up valid. They use that to estimate the number of VINs registered.
