Elon Musk on Twitter 0-60 in 3.5 seconds I know months ago I had a few discussions/arguments that there is no way the Performance Model 3 will be as fast as the Model S P100D. This enraged some individuals. The most common argument was “the Model 3 is lighter so why wouldn’t it be faster?!” My answer was simple: marketing and placement. Every other company does it and it mostly reminds me of the artificial power/performance gap between a Porsche GT4 and GT3. A smart company simply doesn’t encroach on the flagship car’s performance with a lesser/cheaper vehicle. Elon directly compared the Model 3 to the BMW M3 and stated it’s 15% quicker and handles better on track That’s a bold statement and extremely impressive if true. In addition to the Model 3 Performance upgraded 20” wheels and sportier tires I’m going to state that the suspension must have been upgraded as well. What are your thoughts?! Excited or disappointed?! I personally am impressed. 3.5 seconds is what I guessed a long time ago as claimed/advertised performance, and 3.1 seconds actual street performance (we’ll hopefully find out soon if that holds true) Even if it’s as advertised 3.5 seconds is properly quick for $78K!
