Tesla Model 3 Performance looks at home in top speed Autobahn run

The Tesla Model 3 Performance is not the fastest car in the electric vehicle maker’s lineup. The Model S Plaid, Model X Plaid, and the Cyberbeast could easily beat it when it comes to 0-60 mph times. But with a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 262 km/h (163 mph), the reengineered Tesla Model 3 Performance is no slouch. 

And if a video from Germany is any indication, it would appear that the Tesla Model 3 Performance is also capable of sustaining very high speeds in a very proficient manner. The video was posted by the YouTube channel YouOnlyNeedACar, which typically tests vehicles on the Autobahn. Sections of the Autobahn do not have a speed limit, so the famous freeway is the perfect area for top speed runs. 

As could be seen in the video, the reengineered Model 3 Performance reaches its top speed without any issues. And even at a speed of 263 km/h, the new Model 3 Performance looks at home on the Autobahn. The vehicle looked very stable as it sped through the highway, and it seemed planted on the ground even as the driver changed lanes at 263 km/h. 

Overall, Tesla’s aero work on the new Model 3 Performance seems to have paid off in spades, as it helped create a vehicle that could only be described as one of the best bang for the buck performance cars in the market today, electric or otherwise. The Model 3, being the most affordable car in Tesla’s lineup, is already the perfect daily driver. The new Model 3 Performance just makes that daily driver far more exciting. 

The driver of the Tesla Model 3 Performance shared some thoughts about the vehicle in the description of the YouTube video. As per the YouTube channel host, the feeling that the reengineered Model 3 Performance gives drivers as it accelerates is indescribable. The driver also praised the new Model 3’s interior and quality, which he noted was better than the previous generation of the vehicle. 

Interestingly enough, the reengineered Model 3 Performance’s driver observed that the touch based gear turn signals on the steering wheel were actually not too bad, as he got used to them quickly. This was not the case with the vehicle’s touch-based gear selectors, as the driver noted that the system was quite annoying to use.

Watch the reengineered Tesla Model 3 Performance’s top speed Autobahn run in the video below.
