    0-60ft 2.17s w/ 1 foot rollout (2.39s without)
    I wanted to get the 10mph splits but for some reason the app is only giving me a few measurements. I can probably pull the data off the SD card and get it.
    30-70 3.56s
    50-70 2.06s
    Definitely doesn’t have a lot of jerk off the line like the P or launching a turbo Subaru. The 30-70 acceleration feels very strong.

    What wheels and tires?

    What SOC?

    18” Aeros. These tires are pretty bad but I doubt stickier tires would make any difference. Looks like it pulls a flat ~0.65g from 0-45mph. People with aeros on the performance are much quicker.

    Thanks for posting. A little bummed it doesn't have as much oomph as the P 0-20mph.

    Was also hoping it was closer to 4.2s so there would be a more noticeable difference from the RWD.

    Cmon Tesla, unleash the beast!

    The LRD does seem tamer off the line than the 3P but it’s the passing times that matter more to me. For those, the LRD is better than half way between the LR and 3P.

    30-50mph
    LR: 1.9s
    LRD: 1.5s ...21% faster than LR
    P: 1.2s ...20% faster LRD

    50-70mph
    LR: 2.8s
    LRD: 2.1s ...25% faster than LR
    P: 1.7s ...19% faster than LRD

    Thanks. So, assuming that data is correct, virtually all of the 0-60 difference (0.55-0.6s) between the RWD and the AWD is between 30-60mph.

    That’s what it would imply, but I don’t believe that to be true based on the benefit of AWD traction off the line. So I’d say the numbers are suspect.

    We got 4.63 by counting frames on my buddy's non-P AWD twenty minutes after delivery, so probably 85% SoC. He had a passenger in the car so maybe 300lbs total. I would say that is consistent with your time.

    Wish I'd kept my vBox but am looking forward to the first CANbus data.

    Just to point out how insanely good those 30-50 and 50-70 numbers are...


    https://hmg-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/files/2019-chevrolet-corvette-zr1-vs-2018-porsche-911-gt2-rs-final-scoring-performance-data-and-complete-specs-1532365631.pdf

    That's a $143,810 ZR-1 corvette vs a $348,730 Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

    Vette 30-50? 1.9 seconds. 50-70? 2.3 Both slower than the AWD Model 3 by 4 and 2 tenths respectively.

    GT2 30-50? 2 flat. Still half a second slower than the M3 AWD. Finally at 50-70 the Tesla, at 2.1 (or 2.06), loses... to the 350k porsche which does it in...2.0

    The P still slaps both around handily of course. I'm not sure there's anything quicker at either test that doesn't say P90D or P100D on it.

    Typical “top gear” passing acceleration numbers, such as from C&D, include the downshift delay for an automatic transmission. All EVs have a huge benefit here. The Bolt EV 30-50mph is 2.5sec, a half second behind that GT2 RS.

    Ignore passing acceleration numbers from cars with manual transmissions. They don’t downshift those cars and thus the times are way longer.

    But are those times calculated by cruising at 30 or 50 and then stabbing the throttle? Versus OP times that are calculated mid acceleration (if that makes sense).

    Thanks for posting this. Regretting getting the non-P, but I don’t want to go to the back of the line. Hopefully I won’t care after a few weeks.

    Given the Model 3 doesn't have any gears to downshift I'm not sure if that matters?

    And just to clarify, on the sheets it says those 30-50 and 50-70 numbers are at top gear during acceleration. The model 3 will be quick, but not supercar quick. As someone posted above, the acceleration will be instant and consistent which might be different from the ICE cars people are used to. I know my current WRX is a drag until that turbo spoils up and then tappers off. The model 3 will be nice and instant and linear.

    Yea but you still have momentum on your side if you are doing a 0-90 run and taking the 30-50, etc times based off of that. Versus cruising at 30 and going full throttle which I thought is how most automotive publishers do it. The difference could be minimal since there is no downshifting and you have instant torque.

    Its probably not too late, and you'd probably get your vehicle quicker than an standard AWD.

    How did you calculate the 4.26 sec w/ rollout time? Trying to understand whether the M3D is quicker the the Audi S4 which car and driver clocked at 4.3sec with rollout.
