Tesla Model 3 Performance

Tesla’s Model 3 Performance “Ludicrous” variant seems to really be around the corner.

The company apparently leaked numerous details about the upcoming model on its own website. Though not visible in normal browsing, the specs and feature list is accessible in the site’s source code, as discovered by the sleuths over at Tesla Motors Club (via Electrek).

The Model 3 Performance (or “Ludicrous”, another rumored name based on earlier leaks) is an upcoming, performance-oriented variant of the Tesla Model 3. We’ve seen what it looks like thanks to an apparent private presentation held in Malibu, but now we have close-to-official word on some of its specs.

We’ve dug through the source of the UK version of Tesla’s site and seen the details with our own eyes. The feature list is as follows:

  • Exclusive to Model 3 Performance, the redesigned front and rear fascias, rear diffuser and carbon fibre spoiler give a unique look, and work together to optimise high-speed stability

  • All-New Adaptive Suspension

  • All-new adaptive damping powered by in-house software gives you enhanced body control, without sacrificing daily usability or comfort.

  • The latest generation driving mode integrates adaptive suspension controls with a performance-optimised powertrain to deliver more response and fun behind the wheel

  • Track Mode V3 features all-new calibration for the powertrain and adaptive suspension to give you more authority behind the wheel, you can customise handling balance, stability controls and regenerative braking to set the car up how you like it.

  • All-new seat design with enhanced side and cushion bolsters hold you in place, while ventilation keeps you cool.

  • Bespoke chassis and suspension hardware is tuned to provide intuitive, razor-sharp response to driver inputs.

  • Forged Performance wheels, Lightweight, staggered wheels provide sharper turn-in response, improved predictability, increased traction out of corners and optimised aerodynamics.

  • Enhanced pedal feel and improved heat management ensure consistent braking at all speeds and across a wider temperature range.

  • The lightweight carbon fibre décor and refined weave pattern is unique to Model 3 Performance.

While it’s hard to discern the actual specs of the car, this tidbit can also be found in the code:

  • All-new high-performance drive units deliver more than combined 500 horsepower and 0-60mph in {ACCELERATION} seconds. Welcome to the most powerful Model 3 ever.

Notably, the word “Ludicrous” is mentioned once in the code, but the car is referred to as Model 3 Performance throughout, indicating that the name will remain unchanged (the original Model 3 Performance was discontinued after Tesla launched the updated, “Highland” version of Model 3 in 2023).

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this leak is that it’s actually on Tesla’s webpage and can still be found by searching through the source, indicating that the launch of Tesla Model 3 Performance (or Ludicrous) is imminent.
