"Tesla don't make slow car". 0-60 in 5,1 sec with LR battery, but just for fun, somebody tried it on a 1/4 miles? If not, your guess?
I'm not aware that any owner has taken Model 3 for a timed 1/4 mile run and publicly shared the results. Probably not allowed in the agreement that early owners have had to sign. The Performance trim isn't going to be available for a while, so anything we could extrapolate for the LR is probably going to be outdone by the P anyway.
Absolutely, but I think LR trim will be fast enough for me... ;-)
the normal range is fast enough for me
I have no desire to try to impress strangers at stop lights
I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised with the ~5.6s 0-60 on the smaller battery. I’m not trying to be the fastest guy in my town when it comes to getting to the grocery store, but accelerating onto a highway calls for safety and a little fun, as does getting out of a dangerous situation.
my guess...12.75 seconds...98 miles per hour in 1/4 mile
I would expect very low 14 sec. In the 13 sec I'll be super happy for the standard range.
My S85 did the 1/4 mile in 13.2 seconds at 112 mph. Model 3 will probably be a bit behind that result.
I live my life a quarter mile at a time.
there are formulas and calculations you can make based upon those numbers alone.
LR will probably be in the low 13s. SR will probably be in the high 13s low 14s.
For some prespective on my guesses -- actual results from zeroTo60 times website:
2017 Tesla Model S 60 Compare Car 0-60 mph 5.0 | Quarter mile 13.6
2015 Tesla Model S 70D Compare Car 0-60 mph 5.2 | Quarter mile 13.8
2012 Tesla Model S Base (225 kW) Compare Car 0-60 mph 5.9 | Quarter mile 14.2
If the LR is truly 5.1 (I think it's understated) - then the quarter mile would be between 13.6 and 13.8. I think it's probably 4.7-4.8. Which would drop it into the low 13s.
If the SR is truly 5.6 (we have no idea on this - no one has driven one) - then the quarter mile would be somewhere about 13.8 but probably less than 14.2.
Like I said in my previous post my guess is LR: 12.9 and SR: 13.7
CarTest2000 modeling for the long range Model 3 yields:
0-30 mph: 2.05
0-60 mph: 5.10
0-80 mph: 8.29
0-100 mph: 12.91
0-120 mph: 19.76
660': 8.88 @ 82.98 mph
1320': 13.69 @ 101.98 mph
That's my guestimate in the sand. :)
Your guestimate, is a good estimate, for the bestofit.
