On the standard Model S AWD, the rear motor had less power than the RWD version. Will the Model 3 likewise have a different motor between AWD and RWD? If the motor is the same between both, seems like the AWD should have a materially faster 0-60. Will the P version have a stronger rear motor?

Nobody knows except Tesla. My guess is that the AWD will have two identical smaller motors and the performance version will have the rear motor from the RWD. That's what makes the most sense to me.

Tesla Model 3 dual motor design leaks in latest design studio update

Judging from this, it seems like the Model 3 will follow the same pattern as the Model S.

Actually... judging from that, it looks like the single motor and dual motor iterations share the same rear motor... unlike the S.
