Performance Version Of Tesla Model 3 May Come Next Year

The highly-anticipated Tesla Model 3 is finally in production. However, for now only a single-motor version of the car is unleashed. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed via Twitter that the plan is to roll out a performance version sometime next year.

A fan asked the executive specifically when a performance version of the Model 3 could arrive. Musk’s specific response was, “Probably middle of next year.”

Musk cited the fact that adding additional variations of the Model 3 will just complicate production. For that reason, Tesla is treading cautiously. The company plans to rapidly ramp up production of the car through the end of 2017.

Tesla has historically offered performance variants of its dual-motor cars, such as the Model S P100d, the “P” being the designation for its quick performance.

Tesla’s official website says the company plans to roll out a dual-motor version of the Model 3 in spring of next year. Such official word suggest the company will roll out the all-wheel-drive version (enabled by two motors) first and then focus on a performance tune for it later on in the year.
