    I know there has been some random thoughts a while back, but what do people think the actual 0-60 time will be for the AWD? I think the P and D will both do better then published, but what will it be?

    I'm guessing 0.1 to 0.2 faster than advertised. But... the non-P AWD cars will probably be bin lottery. Some cars might get motors that only get advertised 0-60mph but others might get a motors that are a little quicker. Though we have no clue how the "software lock/cork" on the non-P AWD cars actually behaves. It could neuter even the better motors.

    You think there's that much variance with the motor?

    It's possible. Also variance between battery packs.

    It would be sad if the AWD only got advertised 0-60 since the RWD models have tested as low as 4.6s - about 0.5s quicker than advertised...

    I think it would be great if AWD were more like 3.9-4.1s and the P was more like 3.0-3.1s

    I have a feeling that P with ludicrous update will get like 2.9 - 3.1 seconds, pushing toward 2.9s tho.

    Do we know if the performance AWD 3 has ludicrous and launch mode?

    I haven't seen anything official. It would make sense for a Performance edition to have launch mode, but it's probably closer to "Insane" than "Ludicrous" in terms of 0-60 speed.
