With the introduction of the dual motor Model S, Tesla now has quite a few different motor/inverter options. Let's take a look. From the S60 & S85: 380HP Rear Unit From the 85D: 188HP Front Unit 188HP Rear Unit From the P85D: 221HP Front Unit 470HP Rear Unit What can we speculate about the Gen 3's powertrain from this? Base Model 3: 188HP Front Unit Only - More power than most modern 4 cylinder turbocharged engine options Mid Model 3: 221 HP Front Unit Only - V6 power AWD Model 3D: 188HP Front Unit - V8 sports coupe power 188HP Rear Unit Performance Model 3: 380 or 470HP Rear Unit - High performance sedan Performance+ Model 3P+: 470HP Rear Unit - Supercar beating 221HP Front Unit Obviously just complete speculation. I don't know if front wheel drive or rear wheel drive will be the standard (I'd hope FWD).
