Model S Performance Vs LR Range

I'm sort of considering the idea of buying a Model S, especially if the rumored interior refresh does actually happen. I'm wondering if anyone knows why the long range MS gets almost 650km rated range while the Performance only gets 560km? They both have the same 19" wheels so it's not that. Does the performance have a different front drive unit or something along those lines?
