    Let’s hope! Three others who were scheduled a test drive in P3Ds were told at the dealership they didn’t have them and only had the LRs. That is a lot of broken promises!

    r/teslamotors - Where are the P3D test drives?

    I'm trying to formulate it words. IT WAS SO DAMN AWESOME.

    What performance modes does it have? Sport? Insane? Ludicrous? Max battery? Launch mode?

    Any other software changes or things that stood out on the performance model?

    Did you notice a specific button on screen or elsewhere to turn off the traction control? (Same question as Tech_Guy above)
    We have seen several videos so far with P3D's sort of drifting.

    From another thread, Apacheguy asked for,
    I’m interested if there is any noticeable whine from the front motor under acceleration?

    Did you drive it on normal roads or some sort of a track?

    Any personal impressions and comparison to previous cars are welcome!

    What is the quickest car you have driven prior to this and how does it compare? We are in unicorn territory here- Congrats on that drive!
    (if you get the sense you are over-sharing, trust me, you aren't... we will soak it all in vicariously through you. thanks!)

    Not saying it didn't happen, but whole thread is suspect.

    For what it's worth (and I could've used and acronym for that, but I' old and know how to type), I test drove a blue LR3 at Buena Park on Wednesday. I saw the picts of the red PAWD3s there the day/evening before and figured, heck, why not? I'm driving right by.

    So I stroll in and ask and they said sure! But the red ones were no where in sight. But they had a LR in blue.

    Very different from my S85. Tighter, lighter, better seats & visibility. In terms of quickness, it felt more or less the same, and I didn't want to give the sales guy a heart attack.

    I do hate to say it, but to me, it did feel cheaper than my 5 year old S, and of course, I know that it actually is, but noticeable to me.

    Regardless, keeping my order in for the AWD.

    I’ll say it. Didn’t happen! First thing I would have done would be to at least post a pic....
