Not a bad idea, I will conveniently forget about itYou could do it the way I did it: I told her that I wanted to try it out of curiosity, and that we had 48 hours to return it. But, then, i totally forgot to initiate the return within that timeframe, so we were stuck with it.
As the saying goes: It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
If I am not mistaken, for a short while Tesla "admitted" that the Model 3 Performance made ~450 HP via the owners manual or maybe it was the website.Thanks, did not see this before. Here is a noob question: Are the numbers on Wikipedia and on some car sites way off? I see there that the hp for the M3LR is listed as 346 and M3P as 450
Sigh....highly unlikely though. Their days of offering anything discounted are gone. Heck, they've even taken away referral supercharger miles. All the folks asking for money back when something was reduced (remember FSD sale?) has them burned!Still waiting if Black Friday/holiday sale on "Acceleration Boost"
There's a bit less of a punch off the line than the performance, but the 1/8 and 1/4 times are pretty much identical.
But the 2021 performances also have less of that punch off the line than the older ones do. It feels to me that they make up for the softer launch on the new performances by turning up the wick a bit when the car is already in motion compared to what it used to be.
Theres like, average person idea of identical performance (whithin a second), then there is enthusiast idea (within a tenth), then there is competitive racer (within a thousandth)I don't see how a typical gap of 0.3-0.5 in the 1/4th is identical. Thats a pretty noticeable margin at the strip. I've seen a Performance hit 11.4s in the quarter. Never seen a Boosted LR hit that number.

So the P gets the hit from a dig but the boosted LR does slightly better on a roll? (Boosted LR on the right) I wonder what the SOC was on both during these runs.. Mine is a boosted LR with the 980 motor and a lightweight Ohmmu 12v battery if that makes any difference. I can probably look into that Ghost Upgrade from Ingenext one day but the boost is good for now.
Probably already posted (If so sorry).
There are numerous videos you can reference that shows at past 60mph the AWD and AWD+ catching or pulling away from a P. The chart you referenced only shows up to 60mph.
No, it does not.
It shows 1/8 and 1/4 mile as well, where the P is always both quicker and faster.
"internet video" is not calibrated and measured data.
You can also reference WUGZ actual CANBUS data showing the P always makes more power too.
With all due respect, I honestly don't know what you mean about "internet video" is not calibrated, etc. You can clearly just watch it with your own eyes and see the results on several runs.
on a roll especially 60+ mph the boosted LR and P are pretty much dead even
and in some cases the boosted LR will start to walk a bit on the P.
It means it's relying on human reaction times, not calibrated measuring devices.
