Often frequent track days in your Tesla? You’ll be wanting Elon’s latest option—the Model 3 Performance ‘Track Package.’
At $5,500 (around P278,400) in the US, it certainly ain’t cheap, but for that, you’ll get new 20-inch ‘Zero-G Performance’ wheels, a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and high-performance brake pads all round. Exciting.
The track pack can only be spec’d by those who’ve ticked the ‘Performance Upgrade’ box when originally ordering their Model 3, though. That’s the option that increases top speed from 233kph to 261kph while also bringing lower suspension, performance brakes, a carbon-fiber spoiler, and software known as Track Mode.
Now, though, an over-the-air update has also brought about Track Mode v2.0. Among other changes, v2.0 allows you to use sliding scales to select things such as how much stability assistance you’d like and where the power should be sent (with the option of 100% at both the front and rear).
So, with the three-motor ‘Plaid’ system still in development, this is the most track-focused Tesla money can buy. What do you think?
