    Deliveries for AWD should be starting this week from what I can gather reading the forums. If anyone becomes aware of any reviews of AWD (or videos), please post them here. I'm really on the fence on changing from AWD to P but any info from new AWD owners would be helpful.

    A few things I'm curious about:
    If the AWD has the 0-20 lag the RWD seems to have off the line.
    0-60 4.5s accuracy. I'd guess it'd be on the mark considering the P is close to 3.5 and definitely not under rated.
    Any options in the interface new to AWD.

    yes I am also dying to know if the 0-20ish lag on the RWD is also there or not. there were a couple forums members who were supposed to get it this weekend but it was pushed back to later in the week.

    Someone's had to have gotten one by now. Why aren't they here posting instead of driving their new car?!

    Here's a video of a Performance Model 3 going 0-60 in 3.15 seconds! Three people are in the car. Posted by YouTube channel DAErik yesterday.

    and essentially just guessing at the actual time since they didn't use any sort of calibrated test equipment.

    Oddly he says there "It is much faster than my S75 RWD"

    Odd, because the S75 RWD is 4.3 0-60.

    I could buy Tesla under-rating the AWD a bit and it's similar, but it certainly shouldn't be much faster if it's not a P.

    Probably just new car euphoria. It’s smaller and perhaps the AWD give the feeling of faster accel.
