    I tried to keep up with a 3 yesterday (got a 14 S85) on a back road and I got dropped pretty quickly. Definitely seems to allow for spirited driving. :)

    I have a 14 S85 and a Model 3. If the road is windy, the S has no chance.

    The 3 weighs about 1,000 pounds less I believe, so that really makes a difference.

    No doubt, although I was happily surprised by how composed the S was. 3 is the car for canyon carving for sure.

    I have a 3 on 18"s with factory Michelins, and even though it feels much sharper/willing to turn than the S, my S90D on 19"s/Goodyear Eagle Touring feels like it has better cornering grip.
