but, $1K is paint, $5K is AWD, and $3K is wheels and spoiler, etc.

so, something like $20K, not $29K extra for the Performance Model 3 vs. the AWD LR Model 3.

Again....I believe there are things Elon isn't mentioning concerning getting from 4.5 to 3.5 plus seats....maybe different brakes....inverter changes....etc.

The prices will still be silly. The 35k price was BS - this is a giant bait and switch. Everything else that you'd want is just priced insanely high. Who charges 5k for AWD on a 35k car? That's more than what it was for the S since the S included air suspension as well

Tesla cannot make their gross margin goals selling only base 35K Model 3s. Only way to raise ASP across the whole line is to charge a premium for the performance model significantly above cogs.

Look at any other performance car and find out how much it cost you to cut one second off 0-60 times. It’s a lot.

I highly doubt Tesla will design the model 3 performance to compete against the P100D, Roadster2.0, and Rimac. But you guys can dream all you want.

I expect the Model 3 Performance 0-60mph to be in the 3 - 3.7 seconds range.

It's official, 0-60 on Model 3 AWD Performance will be 3.5sec.

Point was that the $29K differential someone had suggested between the LR AWD, and the Performance 3 was well off the mark.
