Marques Brownlee Gets First Drive Of Tesla Model 3 Performance


MKBHD confirms 1G acceleration.

We’ve been dying to see the Tesla Model 3 Performance in action. The only footage available of it so far has been that clip of it skidding around the skid pad in tire-smoking fashion and that was just enough to whet our appetite. Now, it looks as though a solid video is on its way, and the driver will be Marques Brownlee.

The YouTube star is known for getting his hands on all the latest gadgets, and now it appears as if he’s done it again, posting a  photo of the quick version of the mid-size sedan. There’s no video yet, but we’re certain it will drop pretty soon. Tesla has said that customers will start receiving their copies of the performance variant in late July, which is pretty soon.

Brownlee already owns a Model S P100D and has reviewed a Model 3, so we’re not sure yet if this is his personal car. We do know from his tweet that it’s sporting 20-inch wheels and has special modes. We also know from his postings that he has the car at a track somewhere and that he was having trouble with the camera he was using because the g-force was causing it to turn off to protect itself. Said he of the predicament, “.turns out when you accelerate hard enough, you pull 1 G and it triggers that stop.

If you decide to haunt his YouTube channel waiting for the video to drop, you may be waiting awhile. The tweet, which we’ve embedded below, hints, “How hard do we go for IGTV?” We’ve downloaded the new Instagram video app ourselves (kinda sweet, really) in preparation.

“…he was having trouble with the camera he was using because the g-force was causing it to turn off to protect itself.”

Looks like a marketing opportunity for Go-Pro or one of its video camera making competitors. Surely somebody out there makes a compact video camera designed to keep recording while being tossed around?

Also a great marketing opportunity for chiropractors!

Marques owns a Model S, not a 3!

Fixed. Thank you.

After seeing him drive a Lamborghini Huracan 30 mph max idk how I could stand seeing him drive that car. He’s not a sporty driver he just likes the tech. I love watching his tech reviews, but I can’t handle when he does car stuff

Exactly… Love Marques reviews, but not on cars, he is lost. Take that baby to a track on a timer, then we get some real data.

He owns a P100D Model S.

Edited. Thanks!


A little less hysterical could go a long way.

He’s consistently down voted and called out for spamming… We’ve tried to tell him.

We have much bigger fish to fry. Lewd, profane commenters and those who attack. Others using racial slurs. Still, others that attack IEV editors and writers via the site email. I could go on and on. Mister G has developed his little CAPS LOCK statement and it does no harm to anyone. There are much worse issues that we are dealing with nearly non-stop. Kind of sad really …



Muchas gracias por tu apoyo

De nada. No hay problema.

Who’s spamming? My message is consistent and valid. I type out all my messages LOL CONNECT THE DOTS ON CLEAN AIR WAKE UP FOLKS thanks

The original meaning of the term “spam” in internet messaging is literally the practice of posting the same thing over and over.
