Anyone who wants to whine about PM3 price is about to get wrecked so fair warning in advance. Those good at analysis or at least interpreting the work of others should have reached the conclusion: The Model 3 LR destroys the Model S in almost every area. The S only beats the 3 in very specific use case scenarios such as wanting to seat 5 adults and two children. Or if you must have the extra cargo capacity. The S cannot match the 3 in areas like being easier to park and the benefits of just having a smaller car. The Model 3 beats the S so soundly that Tesla has to antisell the 3, and unreport range and performance. The P Model 3 is $3.5K more, mid-single digit price premium over the BASIC MODEL S. It's -Leaner -More advanced technology -Faster -Decked out interior -Carbon fiber spoiler (there's your badge to show off) -Much more range. -I know I'm missing much but no one really needs convincing here. I think we know who wins the contest of Performance Model 3 vs Base Model S. Rebuttals / Counter rebuttals Elon said cheaper options on the 3 than the S. -Who cares what Elon said. Tesla needs to make some money. They can take mine if they would hurry up and let me order. Maybe you shouldn't of fired the website contractors so hastily! The Tesla PM3 doesn't have bla bla bla on the BMW M3. - Umm no BMW is a Tesla. This can't be explained to you, you either get it or you don't. If you think the Tesla is not a BMW, there's no point convincing you. Go buy the BMW M3 and be done here. Those not "impressed" can go impress themselves with something else. Lastly, the PM3 is a disaster creator for the Model S. Look for real world PM3 specs to be better as advertised and look for the S to be made much beefier. It has to be. Otherwise, just shut the S line down except for P100D.
