The first-ever Tesla Model 3 Performance has just rolled off the production line and here we present it in all of its glory.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk previously stated that production of the Performance version of the Model 3 would begin in July. Well, it's only mid-June, so it looks as though Tesla is ahead of schedule with this launch.

The Performance version of the Model 3 starts at a whopping $78,000. It will pull off a 3.5-second zero-to-60-mph sprint and be almost fully loaded. Two options, including Autopilot, are available. Maxxed out, the Model 3 Performance checks in at $83,000.

  • 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds

The Model 3 Performance will have black and white interior (the same white interior potential buyers have been waiting for since it was teased long ago). For now, this will only be used in the new Performance version. However, it will be available in other Model 3 trims in the form of a package at some point. The Performance variant also gets 20-inch wheels and a carbon fiber spoiler as standard.
