    There was a recent tweet where someone asked about ludicrous for the 3, and Elon tweeted back, “you never know”. So, it’s a possibility, but certainly not guaranteed.

    I think if something he says translates into a sale he should make good on it.

    Seems like it would compete with the S. Not sure he'd do that.

    @OP - There are already numerous threads which dive into this general topic. Please use search. A few thread titles such as the following are probably all you need: "Ludicrous Upgrade" or "For AWD owners wanting a P3D-" or "Teslarati speculates that Ludicrous mode is coming" and "Petition: AWD to P3-".

    In any case, Elon actually did tweet a month ago in regards to the model 3 and possibly "more performance" via OTA. I think it's in the cards, but they're holding off on it because they want to time it right. This and the old tweet are the most "official" info we have.

    That was not in reference to Ludicrous mode per se. just “more power” which could just mean a small, OTA improvement.

    Well, this is kind of a no-win situation.

    Elon tweets about something in 2016. Let's say it's "ludicrous" for Model 3.

    Two days go by, someone asks him where it is. Response, "Dude! Give the man time to work!"

    Six months go by, someone asks him where it is. Response, "Dude! Give the man time to work!"

    One year goes by, someone asks him where it is. Response, "Let the man work!"

    Two+ years go by, someone asks him where it is. Response, "Really? you're going to hold him to a tweet from 2016?"

    So at what point is it considered enough time to ask, but not too much time that we can no longer hold him to something he said?
