Tesla confirmed today on Twitter that it is working to offer model 3-performance owners the option to purchase an aftermarket performance upgrade package that includes the track mode for those who choose this option during the session Did not activate the order process.
This is probably a reaction to a Series of Owners Dissatisfaction that the Tesla Model 3 Performance has been decided but not yet officially rolled out would not be available to vehicles that do not have the additional $ 5,000 Performance Upgrade package.
To be fair, when Tesla was opened for the performance of Model 3, Tesla did not explicitly state that this not-so-cheap option package would be required to get the full measure of Model 3 Performance fun. So, if I had been one of those people who cost $ 65,000 or more, I probably would have been quite upset too. But that's not the whole story.
The performance upgrade package includes a few things besides an activated track mode. In particular, the performance-enhanced brakes, suspension and tires. These things are pretty critical for a car with the capabilities of Model 3 Performance, and allow for a track mode that allows more movement of a car without them being irresponsible.
It's still unclear what an aftermarket package would look like and how it would be compared to the $ 5,000 ordering cost of your vehicle, but it might prove popular with second or third-party owners.  Play Now:
