With all the news coming out of Tesla last week you would think we are almost out of feel good stories, but that was proven wrong once again. Looks like a performance configuration of the Model 3 sedan was spotted in LA over the weekend driven by none other than Tesla’s head designer Franz. The wheels appear to be 20 inches in size and also sporting the red calipers which normally are installed only on performance Teslas.
It is unlikely that this car was simply modified for fun. It is much more likely that Tesla is testing its performance version of the sedan out in the wild as they often do. It probably doesn’t hurt that it creates a lot of hype.
This news goes along with Tesla’s release of the standard range battery and the dual motor configuration dates last week which had surprised some people who didn’t expect those to be available until later in the year.
