The long range AWD is already very fast with very hard acceleration. The Performance is literally painful. When I got a ride in one at Tesla store I wasn't ready for the stop light launch, and my neck was hurting afterward. My buddy traded in his Camaro SS 1LE for a Model 3 Performance.
The P3 is scary fast, I think my kidneys were pressed against my back. You're not supposed to step on it like ICE since the torque delivery was just insane.

The handling was something that surprised me, there was no understeer as it was just so flat it makes boxer engine feel like a yaht. The closest like I said was like having AYC and ACD on the Evo but without a stiff suspension. P3 didn't feel that stiff and it's able to ride like rails on turns.

I may try to get a test drive of Model S P90D and see how that compares with P3.
