    Hi everyone (and I hope Tesla Motor and M. Musk )

    *All of this, is only speculation*

    I've had a dream about Tesla making a kind of Crazy Sport Package for the Model 3.
    This package will include the Dual Motor All Wheel Drive and the Ludicrous Speed Upgrade, but this one gonna have an extra Drift Mode (like the new Focus RS) and a Electronic Line-Lock (like the new Mustang GT Premium).
    The Smart Air Suspension will have a sport tune.
    The car will include exclusive wheel, Recaro style front seat and some carbon fiber trim.

    What are you think about a package like this ?
    Whit this pack, the Model 3 will be a daily drive Beast !!!

    If it'd mean keeping up with performance cars on the race track, I'll add the option. Not going to happen without some serious rethinking though.

    Even if you take the RWD, if the Traction Control it's too strong, you don't gonna have any fun ;)

    The Focus RS uses a torque vectoring system that wouldn't really work with the tesla single motor per axle system.

    Line-lock seems to serve no practical purpose besides wearing your tires.

    The other posters are correct they're going to save the sport model for the new Roadster.

    Is Tesla using torque vectoring... like some conventional sports cars already feature, such as the Porsche 911? That car also uses four-wheel steer, resulting in yet again improved handling.

    It ought to be easier to accomplish with electric drive than with ICE propelled cars that have to use complicated differentials.

    They use torque vectoring to a degree, you can control the front and rear axle independently, but since there are not four separate motors, you cannot have torque vectoring per wheel on a direct drive system.

    You'd have to change it from direct drive to use differentials incurring efficiency losses for something you don't even need.
