Thanks to Richard Symons for lending us his Model 3 Performance - geheads.info/will/hjqM-6MiqlF3qUq4GMVhkg.html
Mat’s got his hands on a new Tesla Model 3 Performance... And he's here to share a truly in-depth review with you!
As you’d expect from the name, the Model 3 Performance is one EV which can compete with the best when it’s on the road. With dual electric motors, it can put down 462hp and 639Nm of torque… That’s 96hp & 130Nm more than the Model 3 Long Range! Not only that, but its claimed range is only 8 miles shy of what the long range can achieve, too!
Of course, such performance from an electric car won’t come cheap, and you can expect to pay over £57,000 for one. So there’s just one question left… Is it worth it? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

    Well let's think about it 10 years to come these are 100% full electric vehicles how many fails will these have. very compilated features we will end up seeing many of these in the breakers yards because the computer systems will fail more and more, i can just imagine loads of these on the market for £5000 in 10 years even £3000 with so many fails and MOT advisories

    9:35 That thing about the rims is unbelievably wrong. I understand that it's much cheaper to copy-paste the same rim, but, it's wrong and seriously OCD triggering. In this case it can affect negatively the dynamics of the airflow, causing more drag from one side, something that can cause serious problems on very slippery roads and high speeds, among other aspects. Do they also wear pairs of same-side shoes? I've seen this stupidity from brands too many times, it seriously needs to stop.

    I do agree. But I reckon this is just to simply things for repairs, supply, tyre rotations etc. Still though, doesn't make sense when one side is slightly more aerodynamic than the other.

    Disclaimer this note is nothing against matt as I absolutely love his channel: I’ve noticed that all European car reviewers when told to review American cars are always very good at nit picking every single detail that they don’t like or find insignificant but on other European cars they will skip those criticality’s like they don’t exist and never really mention the things these companies get ride or how much of a bargain they are etc.

    For me personally, there is nothing appealing about this car, or any other Tesla car that I've seen so far. I feel like they are too reliant on computers and flashy gadgets. I think having so many of the car's controls (and entertainment) on a big screen is going to promote careless driving, and also, I think that in 5-10 years, we will find out that these cars will become quite unreliable and have expensive repair costs.

    I see some moisture inside the headlights...this is where Tesla should improve. The whole project is sensational, assembly and quality are not at the same level. Look at the paint, looks like an orange skin, it's crispy ...not a good sign. I'm considering to buy one of these (and probabilly i'll do) , but damn, even a crappy brand as BMW , dead starting from 2005 after the E46, does better. Anyway, i'll add 10.000€ to the price for a proper KW suspension kit (Variante 3, 2.500€), wheels ( OZ Leggera HLT 19'' instead of 20'' stock 2.000€), tires (Michelin Sport Pilot Cup 2 255/40-19, 700€) and upgraded brake system ( Brembo GT-R kit, over 3.500€).

    Until 4:42 all good till you get to the part when you really ask why Tesla i cant press a button to change my steering wheel and need to use the so call Ipad?? , Well Tesla isn't a German car and unlike German car brands if you do notice they like to put buttons for their every (almost) functions, its easy and nice (not all the time for some people).

  • Seawolf


    5 დღის წინ

    @AH12 Oh yeah, it is a different driving experience for sure. But I'm certain manufacturers will bring us a proper sports focused EV's. This is just the beginning. We're at that point where, manufacturers are understanding the performance EV gives, and where they're trying to figure out how to deploy that performance. Whilst also simultaneously trying to develop better batteries and systems etc.

  • AH12


    5 დღის წინ

    @Seawolf I'm not saying it bad its looks amazing!! Don't get me wrong it's just that the driving experience is not the same that's what I'm trying to say.. So far I saw pads touch screens laser systems and lots of sensor which are the highest quality on the industry from the German manufacturers brands unlike the others... I'm not saying they doing bad job its just not near it..

  • Seawolf


    5 დღის წინ

    @AH12 I disagree. Vehicles are getting more efficient, faster, easier to use, with more capabilities. I'm sure people said the same when they replaced crank starters. You see the same systems in aircraft and spacecraft these days as well. Have you seen the cockpit of a new A220? Everything's going the way of the iPad and touchscreens. They may be less tactile, but they're far more functional.

    I don't know what you do for a living. For sure you are not being paid by Tesla, more likely for the German Auto Association that Tesla is eating their lunch, to shit all over an impossible to beat EV ahead at least 10 years of competing brands. With performance numbers that put to shame very many far more expensive cars, and with technical contents the competitors only dream about. the most independent survey by the Consumer Report put Tesla cars the most desirable to own. You should do something about your voice , it is so unpleasant to hear, yet you seem such a decent chap.

    Am i the only one that finds it hilarious that Tesla and fanboys emphasize so much on the launch times compared to regular high performance cars and claim victory while the Tesla drives utter shit compared to those. There's a LOT more to being a high performance car than a speedy launch 0-60. I was stupid enough to buy one but got rid of it after 4 months, it felt like i was driving some cheap plastic imitation product from aliexpress. Back to a BMW M5, not as fast 0-60 but an easy order of magnitude better experience, both in driving and interior feel and function.
