    A P3D with aero wheels doing a quarter-mile run. Considerably faster than Road And Track’s time of 12.07 seconds.



    Enjoy!

    Nice to see. Thanks. Road & Track is one of the few car magazines that does not abuse its cars when testing. No dropped clutches, speed shifts, etc, -- not that any of that applies in this case. I believe they also test with two people in the car. So their numbers are usually a touch slower than other magazines but also more realistic.

    Road and Track actually amended their article (see below...bolding is mine). Note that I'm not sure that I agree with the "industry-standard" comment, but it certainly seems the mags are caught up in the "we better publish better numbers like the other mags or our readership will revolt". I have a feeling that Car and Driver does NOT follow this industry standard (and I tend to view their numbers as gospel). I will say the rollout is, at least, consistent with what happens on drag strips across the world.

    At the end of the day, just make sure you are comparing apples-to-apples. As an example, I was researching my old P85+ numbers vs. the Model 3 numbers last night and depending on the magazine the swings can appear much bigger or smaller than they really are - in short, try to compare from the same source. Oh, and as for my P85+, it looks like it sits exactly in between the Model 3 AWD and Performance in 0-60...oh wait, I used two different magazine sources...never mind!

    From R&T
    Tesla fans know what that means. Like the gnarliest versions of models S and X, this all-wheel-drive 3 launches from a standstill like a rifle shot. Our testing measured a 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds, 0-100 in 8.6, and a quarter-mile of 11.8 seconds at 113.7 mph. Keep the pedal nailed, and you'll hit a 155-mph top speed that's 15 mph higher than the base Model 3. The braking is prodigious, too, with 60-0 and 80-0 distances on par with a BMW M3 on carbon ceramics.

    Ed. Note: Initially, we published a 0-60 time of 3.51 seconds, 0-100 in 8.84, and a quarter-mile of 12.07 seconds at 114 mph. After publication, it became clear that these numbers did not account for a one-foot rollout, an industry-standard adjustment we apply to all acceleration data we publish. The acceleration times we measured for the Tesla Model 3 Performance have been updated here to reflect this adjustment.

    I usually race on an empty stomach:rolleyes:. And I remove the spare tire. And the seats when no one is looking.
    Or I have my 14 year old drive if on private property (no shifting required:p).
    I won't bother to share numbers.

    It is absolutely uncanny how close the numbers are across the board! Doesn't matter 20" or Aeros... 3.2-3.3 0-60s (or ~3.5 w/o rollout) and 11.7-11.8 quarter -- with the top ranges at higher SOC ~90% or better. I'm ready to see some robust data for the LR-AWD instead of these recording of the speedo type videos :rolleyes:

    Another one!

    Different car, different track. 11.785 @ 115!



    Seems this is most definitely an 11 second car! No longer having sellers remorse trading the Camaro SS for this baby :D

    I'm curious how much power Tesla will add OTA in the future. According to the firmware hacked by Ingineerix, the battery is capable of delivering over 600hp(480kW). His teardown of the drive unit showed that the inverters should easily be able to handle that.

    Launch mode will shave a tenth of the 1/4 mile. This should arrive by the end of the year.

    I’m not sure Ludicrous mode will be provided OTA. Tesla might roll it out with a larger battery on the 3 and require a new purchase.

    Pardon my ignorance, but how much time did Ludicrous mode knock of a "regular" PXXD's 1/4 mile? Do PXXDLs still have Insane mode in addition to Ludicrous?

    Do you remember where you saw that? I don't remember him disassembling a P3D yet.

    Not 100% it was this video - but it stood out when I heard the max limits

    His detail of the Model 3 firmware below reveals that the battery is capable of about 480kW, which is something like 640hp. His later breakdown of the inverter shows that two of them should easily be able to handle that much power.
