      Now for the unending speculation about just how quick a ludicrous Model 3 will be, and whether or not it will be faster than a ludicrous Model S.

          Well if you'r going to compete against BMW's 3 series you need to have a Ludicrous option to attract the M3 buyers. Or at least make them jealous.

          I also think most people dream of having a M3 but can never afford it and will settle with the model that looks like the M3.

          Can you add ludicrous after purchase or is it a major upgrade?

          It's a change in the battery contactors along with the main fuses and perhaps some electronics. It's possible but it's expensive.

          What kind of speed do you guys have in mind on the M3 with ludicrous mode?

          I say between 4.3 - 4.5 sec 0-60mph

          IMO the T M3 looks much nicer and will have a far better ride with way cooler goodies.

          OK but if they do a car under 4.0 sec for half the price of the Model S then what would be the point of buying a model S?

            True, true still not worth half the cost of a full equip M3 if you ask me but yah true...
            Did you meant new things on model S?

            Yes... New things on S and X platform to differentiate it from 3.

            Similar to how newer tech is previewed on BMW 7 series and it makes its way down to 5 or 3 series...

              Hmm interesting... Yah that would make sense because they'll need to justify such a gap in the price...
              For another car manufacture I would not doubt this but for Tesla, I find it but too much to implement major changes to improve the S and X in the mist of releasing soo many M3... But they'll probably update newer model S and X with their new autopilot sensors down the line so maybe then they'll add other features not included in the 3 to differentiate them...

              for myself, looking at a car with a base $35k price, I can not imagine the ROI on Ludicrous. I am sure there are some looking to make their 3 price out above a standard S/X and have it really kickass, but there are a lot of features I would want well before the cost of Ludicrous Mode.
              For example, on the S, going from the standard RWD $71,500 base to Ludicrous the price increases $48,000 for a total of $119,500 before any other option is added. A 67.1% increase.
              Using that same percentage on the $35k base, would put a PxxD Ludicrous Model 3 at $59,320, $24,320 above the base.... But it seems the general consensus on add-on prices will be about 75% of the existing model's add-on prices, which would be an add of $35,520 making the price $70,520... plus some upgraded paint, leather, interior, wheels, roof, AP, SC, etc and it is above $80k.
              I'd rather have the other upgrades, not be the quickest off the line and pay in the mid $40s

                My guess is 0-60 in 4.0 - 4.3. If EM can rightfully call it insane mode, it better live up to it's name. I will pass though as efficiency and range are my goals.

                BMW 7 series is more expensive than the BMW M3 but not as faster.

                Model S/X is fast but they are not sport cars. The model 3 can be the sporty sedan (lighter, better handling but not as luxurious/Tech'd out).

                  I live in a major metropolitan area. I feel really lucky if I get to drive my car faster than 45 MPH. Having Ludicrous Mode will not benefit me at all. It is a super cool feature for those who have the ability to use it.

                  I would love it but I have a feeling it will cost too much. I want glass roof, auto pilot, cold weather package, bigger battery and AWD. Hope that comes close to $45K
