    I can't wait for the announcement, i even reserved a 2nd TM3 just in case it's too tempting :)

    I see the dual motor Model 3 as an opportunity for them to sorta challenge the M3 and AMG C63 segment of the market, which sells around $70K and has 0-60 under 4 seconds - hopefully they will do that!

    Then you might have to wait for the performance version. AWD and RWD 0-60 have traditionally been rather close.

    I don't think AWD will provide the kind of performance that @kbecks13 is probably looking for, however, AWD will make a significant improvement for the 0-60 speed. Just look at the S85 - 2wd is around 5.4 and the S85D is around 4.2 to 4.3. That's quite a difference.

    Canada delivery estimates show Mid 2018 for AWD, so I imagine we should know specs and prices around early may.

    I want to know the specs of the SR battery too. Theorically, available at the same time.

    Clever tongue-in-cheek, but there’s actually a poll category for that (June 17-). :)

    Could, but the 75D and 75 were rather close and while 85 and 85D was more of a refresh, that ended the 85 eventually, the 3 and 3 AWD will have to coexist.

    The difference is: Shrek and Donkey were supposed to be going to “Far Far Away”. We are supposed to be going to Spring 2018. ;)

    I'm guessing AWD will be announced end of April or early May, right before their Q1 quarterly earnings call, to take away some focus of Tesla under-performing on their Model 3 deliveries. Distracting the market with an announcement of the AWD at the end of April will bring another round of "Hope" and something for people to talk about and look forward to.

    Unwritten lines:
    Donkey: But Shrek, we are already Far, Far away !
    Shrek: I know Donkey, but we will get there when we get there. Nagging does not speed up time.
    Shrek: Lucky for us, Donkey, we can enjoy the trip.
    Donkey: Uh huh. How ?
    Shrek: We sing !

    Donkey: I had a hunch those mile markers were set up by Elon.

    I like the pragmatic optimism. Even specs and pricing alone would be nice to help with purchase decisions. Seems like it would be in Tesla’s interest to reduce uncertainty in that regard.

    Given the “probably July” tweet from Elon about the arrival of dual motors, I’m afraid about 70% of us might have been overly optimistic about when specs will show up. What do you think? Will specs and pricing show up well before production starts? Would help with making a decision on RWD vs AWD for some I’m sure.

    Looks like those who predicted
    May 6-May 19 might just be spot on if Tesla really opens AWD orders this week. Congratulations on your perfect prognostications.
