Ground clearance difference between Performance and AWD

Ground clearance difference between Performance and AWD

Is there difference ground clearance between Model 3 Performance version and AWD version. If so can somebody provide the ground clearance information and difference between the two cars. Thank you.

P3 is 0.4 inches, or ~1 cm, lower than the regular dual motor. This assumes the currently shipping P3 with the PUO (bigger wheels and rotors included).

Previously, Tesla made the base P3 with the PUO (also referenced as P3-) which had the same wheels, brakes and suspension as the regular dual motor. The P3- had the same ground clearance as the regular dual motor. It is no longer being produced, but there could be some leftover inventory.

Definitely different ground clearance. The PD3+ had a lowered stance by approx 10 mm. I found that my “low profile” garage jack actually isn’t low enough to use with the hockey puck modification. It just barely fits without the hockey puck installed.
