Tesla already has orders for more than 400,000 units of their Tesla Model 3, the company cannot build the cars quick enough and now Elon Musk has announced a new more powerful version of the car.
Tesla are looking to take on cars like the BMW M3 with the launch of this performance version of the Model 3. The car will have a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of just 3.5 seconds, it will also come with a top speed of 155 miles per hour and will have a range of about 310 miles.
Cost of all options, wheels, paint, etc is included (apart from Autopilot). Cost is $78k. About same as BMW M3, but 15% quicker & with better handling. Will beat anything in its class on the track.

These are some serious claims from the Tesla CEO, as the BMW M3 is an impressive car, whether or not the new performance version of the Model 3 will be able to out perform it remains to be seen.
