    Now, for the $5000 question: is this mode exclusive to the performance upgrades package or will those of us who want to do our own thing in the brakes/wheels/tires/suspension department get to play as well?

    I hope the 0-60 3.5s rating isn’t dependent on this mode being activated.

    Thankfully, it’s not. In mkbhd’s video, he explains its a mode that allows you to (instead of feeling super planted) throw the backend out, power slide around corners, etc.

    This is exciting! I wonder what other software unlocks the P3D might have.

    The ability to add functionality and features to this car through software makes this car so griffin amazing.
    Years ahead of the competition.

    The possibilities of having functional changes and simply fun changes is endless.

    It’s a iPhone on wheels. !!!

    Love it.

    One can only do so much with software. Most performance changes are in hardware and SW features were added to compliment the hardware.

    Well, I still think the changes, additions, and functionality are just starting for this car.
    Think of what can and has been done for smart phones.
    Now think of what could be done with a smart phone with seats, wheels, and cameras. !!

    How does that mean it couldn't be limited to the models with the Performance Upgrade Package?

    He didn't say anything about which cars would or would not have it. In fact it sounded like he wasn't even sure it would be on cars yet. (They haven't given it an official name yet.)

    I was responding to Powered By Jay’s question, not Petra’s. I have no idea.

    Hopefully it arrives soon, as it appears that track mode doesn't exist on the public P3 yet.

    News just in that it will be limited to the P3D+: Electric sliding: We test the Tesla Model 3 Performance's new Track Mode

    So now we know that they are only planning on giving track mode to the people that paid $5k for the Performance Upgrade Package.

    Yay. Glad that I didn’t accept the P3D- and upgraded.
