Tesla Model 3 Performance looks like everything you'd hope it would be in latest video
Things are looking up for the Tesla Model 3.
Tesla managed to hit its production target of 5,000 versions of the car a week at the end of June, marking a positive change for the company.
Previously, the carmaker has struggled to keep up with the insatiable demand for the car due to manufacturing issues.
Production “bottlenecks” and too much automation in certain areas of the model line were cited as a number of factors to why the carmaker hadn’t reached the target.
Now, the carmaker has reached its goal it is likely to start rolling out the $35,000 version of the car to reservation holders.
In addition to the baseline Model 3 Tesla will also start producing the dual-motor variant and Performance version.
The latter has been quoted with a handsome set of specs including an increased sprint and 0-60mph speed.
The range for the Performance variant is the same 310 miles as the long-range battery pack Model 3 but it can sprint from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds. It can also reach a top speed of 155mph.
In a new video released by the carmaker, the car is tearing a testing facility, demolishing the tyres it is on.
The car seems to effortlessly glide in circles around the tarmac with immense speed.
Prices for the maxed out Model 3 cost $78,000 without Autopilot.
Previously, company CEO Elon Musk has said that the Model 3 Performance will be “15 per cent quicker” and have “better handling” than a BMW M3.
He added that he believes the car “will beat anything in its class on the track.”
