Right^^^ I think it’s too soon to speculate, not enough data points, and Tesla probably running conservative tuning on the MY. There will be updates in the future.

Yep. We need some side by side runs I think, with the different configs of each car. Plus give Tesla some time to do its fine tuning with the MY like it has with the M3 over the years. I think at the end of the day its going to stay the same as it is now as Tesla has marketing to worry about as well. If looking at pure 0-60.. M3 P < MY P < M3 AWD+ < M3 AWD < MY AWD. With maybe a MY AWD+ coming into the picture at some point.

Tesla will most def release a boost for the MY AWD, as they are money hungry and ppl will buy it. As far as fine tuning, the MY holds back at the launch but then makes up for it and i think it’s software limited. It’s just 300lbs heavier which isn’t much.

I just test drove both the performance PUP Y and the performance 3 PUP.
Overall very similar..

I must say the size of the Y is substantially nicer when your in it..it felt comfortable to me and decent size and the 3 well just feels compact..

Handling , similar but the 3 definitely does curves/ramps better...maybe a 25% improvement in my book?

Overall i really liked the Y, i wish the seats bolstered some more on the sides as a big guy and around curves it doesn’t hold me like my current sports car....then again its a crossover not a sports car..
