Description

Offer a paid upgrade to include the Performance option to an LR AWD Model 3.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Some believe that the only real difference between the Performance Model 3 and the Long Range All Wheel Drive version is its software (besides the hardware like lowering springs, wheels, pedals, spoiler).   If there are no differences in the motors, inverters, and controllers, please make the Performance software available for purchase to those wanting to upgrade.

Moderator– Tesla has stated in the past that the motor is tested and selected for the performance version of the M3.  So while it is the same physical size, the performance motor is different than the standard LR3.

Offer adjustable front/rear torque bias for AWD.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

When bias is >90% rear, then traction control can be turned down/off.  With this, Tesla could allow stability control to be tweaked to greater degrees of yaw allowing the car to be more effectively used on the track and way more fun!  I mean, who wouldn’t want to power slide a P100D through the corners at Leguna Seca?

At least a Sport Mode that will use torque vectoring to get these big sedans to turn in quicker.  A few other AWD vehicles offer this feature such as Subaru and Mercedes.

Description

It would be great to see speed vs. time and/or speed vs. distance (i.e. performance curves).  While there are third party data loggers to do this, I believe the Model S has all this information already AND it has a wonderful display to show the data on.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

I do not believe any other car can do this. The type of person who buys a Model S would really value this type of value-add to the massive amount of data being collected.
