Tesla teases Model 3 dual motor & performance packages

While horsepower and torque have not yet been revealed, Musk says the new standard dual-motor all-wheel-drive Model 3 will hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and run to 140 mph. The second motor, which brings with it AWD, will cost an extra $5,000. ... will have a total driving range of 310 miles, the same as the current long-range, big-battery Model 3 equipped with a single motor
...
a second, higher-power dual-motor, AWD performance model will also be available, featuring a brisk 3.5-second 0-60 mph time, a 155-mph top speed and the same 310 miles of range. Those numbers suggests that the high-end Model 3 will deliver performance very similar to that of today's larger Model S hatchback.
Bloomberg reports Tesla produces 500 Model 3's a day now, but will halt the production line for a week soon to make further adjustments.

It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.

When I drive a car I'm a driver. When I'm sitting on my couch I'm a biker.
