Has Jaguar done that? Honest question, I have not followed.
It is like more of a crossover, no?

They let hundreds of press drivers road race them around a track in Portugal at WOT. No brake or cooling problems.

It's new kind of layout. A cab-forward AWD crossover with 396hp. But it's also very, very good off-road and in snow. It climbs like a goat, and crosses 500mm of water.

Mine will be built in 28 days.

Yeah, the rotors are bigger.

Wish I would have seen that pic 3 months ago.

I think I will commit to the Jaguar unless Tesla can prove it's a real performance car, not just a 0-60 mph car.

The software, service and charging infrastructure make up the guts of the Tesla ownership as much as any performance.

That’s a big assumption and leap of faith Jaguar matches Tesla support and their is sufficient consistency across there service centers.

If Elon Musk is correct, it will be easier to buy a Model P3D a year from now than it will be to buy a Jaguar i-Pace.

If I don't like the i-Pace, and demand is good, I won't lose any money, but even if I lose $20k, I've been waiting way over 2 years for a P3D. $20k doesn't cover 2 years depreciation.

There is still no real information on the P3D. And Tesla is not big into 3rd party reviews.

Besides 6/15/2018 was Commit date. :D

Commit date as in you are now out substantial money?

Max loss I think is 2500 backing out of delivery on Model 3? I’ve not made it that far.

No, I can legally get my money back, all of it. I cannot alter my configuration choices. But I shook hands. My word is good. It was more than $3500 which I think is what you lose if you order a Tesla and refuse delivery.

Wonder if there is gonna be some bling that will differentiate the AWD/Performance model from the LR commoner vehicles. There's gotta be something that will show show off that I got the more fancy AWD/Perf model..
Perhaps a thick cloud of smug? :D

Suhweet:
Tesla Model 3 is finally getting a badge: Dual Motor and underlined for Performance version

Got my AWD drive invite Wednesday. Will wait a few months to see if any more information released about when they might start leasing the 3.

With my currently extended lease expiring late November I might be caught in a few month gap.

If this was the event that Forbes magazine attended then travel costs for some journalists were covered by Jaguar. Perhaps that is typical for a new car roll-out like this but I don't think Tesla would do the same.
I'm looking forward to owner reviews of the Jag, including yours. I'd love to have a solid EV SUV that can be taken off-road.

Yeah, it's so ugly. I finally sprung for the P last night with the debundling of 20" wheels and price drops. Taking that terrible badging off will be one of the first things I do when I get my car!
Yeah, not a big fan of it either. I would much rather have the T E S L A lettering on the back like Franz's 3 and the Roadsters. Maybe @ryanjm can work some of his magic. I bet Elon's in a good mood today. If I could get that, some Arachnids and a heated steering wheel, I'd be pretty darn happy myself. ;) (I'm pretty much there, either way. :D)

Aftermarket companies already have lettering like that available. I believe it is Abstract Ocean. Of course, coming from the factory that way would be preferable, but otherwise it's not that difficult or costly of an install for DIY.
