    MyTesla says the Dual Motors will be delivered approximately May 2018 and on.

    There hasn't been news on Performance Model 3. Please share if you know any.

    So how many of you will pass RWD, DM for Performance with ludicrous mode?

    My prediction is late 2018 or early 2019? What do you guys think?

    My plan ATM will be to get the 220D as soon as my number is called. Then, in 2-3 years get the P330D or whatever it winds up being and hand the 220 off to the little lady.

    Elon tweeted that P model would probably be here middle of next year. Not sure what that translates to for my position. The estimator says AWD would be available in July at the earliest, so perhaps the end of 2018.

    Here is the tweet I referenced above:

    Elon: "Probably middle of next year. Focus now is on getting out of Model 3 production hell. More versions = deeper in hell."

    for the M3 newbies:

    EST = Elon Standard Time which has little relationship to real time.

    I was, but the looks of the long "hamburger line" made me think that I could lose out on the $7500 tax credit. I'm thinking that I'll just get one of the first batch "long range" models and then trade up in 2 years.

    I'm waiting for a redesigned performance S with a real performance suspension.

    I have 2 reservations (only planning getting one car for the household). I want the performance model.

    I am debating whether or not to get the first long range model available this fall with the first reservation and then look at trading in for the performance model later next year or to (continue) to be patient.

    Just trying to work through how much of a hit I'll take due to depreciation and if it is worth it for the extra speed I don't really need :)

    I am waiting on the performance Model, although I don't need L if that is an option. I am planning on 2019ish.

    Our guess Q4 2018.

    3.1-3.2 seconds (similar to S P85D performance, which was released Dec 2014). Will blow away C63, M3, IS-F, RS4 by good half second, which is big in the 0-60mph world. Will definitely bring more of a car enthusiast demo to Teslalife.

    That's one sick car in green.

    For some reason, I get a feeling that Ludicrous would get us sub 3 seconds :rolleyes:

    My guestimate is low 50K to low 80K. If it goes over 100K, I probably won't buy it.

    I am guessing 70K since the P100D is double the price of the base model 75

    That's what I think, too. Somewhere around 70K.
