    To those who were at the event in Hawthorne and had the opportunity to take a ride in the Model 3, what would you say was the 0-60 for the dual motor? I also read somewhere that they (Tesla) had to utilize a Model S component to make them (Model 3 test cars) driveable, so maybe the performance that was experienced can still change?

    I wasn't there, but it seems like the drivers went 5-10 to 60 on just about every ride. I'm sure someone could slow a ride video down frame-by-frame and tell you exactly how fast they went. Watching a few videos myself, I estimated about 4 seconds. The drivers also didn't specify whether or not the Model 3 had or would have a speed upgrade. I anticipate we'll find that out at Part 2 of the reveal.

    The cars were AWD, as a driver said, but in Elons Twitter AMA, he mentioned that the production AWD will be much faster, so it's hard to draw any conclusions now.
