    Hi, everybody. This poll is part of the Tesla Predictions Competition. Check out the competition rules there if you want.

    1. You don't have to answer every poll. You can skip 5 polls out of 15. Only your last 10 polls out of the last 15 completed polls will count.

    2. Once you submit your vote, you can not change it.

    3. Scoring will be as follows:
    • 10 points for the correct answer,
    • 6 points if your choice is one option above or below the correct answer
    • 2 points if your choice is two options away from the correct answer
    4. This poll is about the 0-60 mph time of the Performance Model 3 as advertised in the Model 3 Design Studio when volume production starts for the Performance Model 3. The correct answer will be determined as follows:

    Step 1: Wait until Performance Model 3 enters volume production
    Step 2: Look at the Model 3 Design Studio. If the information is not there, wait until it is.

    The reason we will wait until Performance Model 3 starts volume production is that Tesla might try to encourage more Model S P100D sales before then by displaying a lower number. Therefore, no number will be accepted as the correct answer including numbers shown in the Model 3 Design Studio before Performance Model 3 enters volume production.

    5. If the correct answer is not one of the answers you can select, this poll will be canceled without any scoring.

    6. After the correct answer is found and the scoring is completed, Tesla might change the advertised time in the Design Studio. This will be ignored and the scoring won't be updated.

    7. Before this poll closes, if a number is published by Tesla, leaked by other sources or tweeted by Elon the poll will be considered closed immediately. You may still be able to vote after that but your vote won't count towards your score in the Tesla Predictions Competition. In other words, you can't use published or leaked official information to help with your answer. Even if you do, your answer won't count.

    Is the idea here that there would be only one model with performance option, the dual motor? And only one level of performance?

    Hi, @zenmaster. This poll is about the Performance Model 3 which will be the counterpart of the Model S P100D. For example, let's assume the Model 3 comes in two battery sizes: 45 and 95 kWh (these numbers are fictional). In that case, the poll would be about the Model 3 P95D.

    In the unlikely event there is also a Model 3 P45D, then the quicker Performance Model 3 will count. In this example, most likely, that would be the Model 3 P95D. It is unlikely but the quickest Performance Model 3 might come in two variants. For example, the Design Studio might display 0-60 times for Model 3 P95D with Ludicrous mode and without. Again, in this case, we will pick the quickest time.
