2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance

2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance

The Model 3 Performance's instant response and all-wheel-drive traction from the motors gives the 3 an off-the-line advantage over more powerful stuff like the 760-hp Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, although once the Shelby is hooked up, it pulls ahead before 100 mph. The Model 3 isn't all about acceleration, however. The Performance's larger brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires help it achieve a 147-foot stop from 70 mph, which is competitive with the best sports sedans.
