I think what Tesla does is increase the torque off the line a lot more for the 3/Y P. That makes it feel even more impressive. Then the contrast between off the line and rolling performance even starker. The car just seems to flatten out after launch.During my one brief test drive of a 23 MS LR, from repeated rolls of of varying speeds it seemed like the MS LR destroyed my MYP. I never tried hammering it off the line though. Interesting that the Plaid was cheaper for you to insure. Can Tesla please bring back stalks and a real horn button?!? PLEASE!
In other words the 3/Y P launch harder and then dial back to the same level as the LR. For me the boosted versions seem a lot more linear. They launch harder than the normal LR but not as aggressive as the P, but seem more "linear" in their acceleration. To me it feels more balanced when you drive it.
The P reminds me of the old US cars where they overly boosted the initial tip in of the throttle to make them feel really sporty and responsive. Not quite that bad as it at least delivers up to 60 mph anyway.
