How about taking the Performance Model 3 platform and creating a two-seater (with focus on the driver's cockpit!) to compete with (and kill) the new Corvette in performance and price?! Come on Elon - you can do it!
Good to see you, I haven't been on the forum for a long time.I actually always thought a 2/3 sized Model 3, 2 doors, could be pretty great - the roadster (not really) that I likely will never afford (likely)
Yes, I feel my little sedan is a sports car - but it needs to go sub-3, like the Corvette!The Model 3 already has mid-engine weight distribution. Put duct tape over your rear door handles. Boom, its now a "mid-engine" legit sports car coupe.
Where's that fellow at who is hollowing out the interior, in preparation to put in a cage or something? He had dropped some serious weight (100's of lb) and he hadn't even gotten to replacing the driver seat, removing the various interior decorative panels, and so on. I'd like to hear how much he can drop off the off-the-line time by dropping lb.Yes, I feel my little sedan is a sports car - but it needs to go sub-3, like the Corvette!
Should be fun and easy to do with a few tweaks. Franz can do it!
Replacing the roof is likely to be a big no-no. My understanding is it provides a lot of structural stiffness, even more than metal roofs usually do.I also think they should do an all out track version of the 3, stripped, CF roof, all the widgets on the screen (g meter, track layout/timer etc)
huge brakes, adjustable suspension etc.

I talked to a tech from Fremont (that was in town training the staff at a Service Center) that said the early cracked roof panels were because they hadn't made them strong enough, that the vehicle trying to flex was causing that. So they went back and made the roof glass stronger. The stiffness of the body is part of why it handles the way it does.
What conditions aren't they working for you in?I wish the auto wipers worked normally
They never work fast enough for the amount of rain on the windshield. It is like 2 steps below where it should be. I have to choose manual setting to clear the rain after I get tired of pressing the button.What conditions aren't they working for you in?
The other day I was annoyed by them for the first time in months. Then I realized they weren't running because I'd turned of the wipers when I was cleaning the bugs off and I didn't want them to turn on when I was scrubbing it.
