Tesla’s recent refresh of the Model 3 introduced several upgrades but the performance model was still not yet released. Tesla fans have been eagerly awaiting a higher-performance version of the recently refreshed Model 3.

Rumors and leaks suggest this upgraded Model 3 variant would be called “Ludicrous,” borrowing terminology from the movie Spaceballs used for Tesla’s top performance models. Evidence like new wheel designs, badging, website code mentions, and regulatory filings point to Tesla likely unveiling this souped-up Model 3 version soon, fueling anticipation among electric vehicle enthusiasts.

Leaks in Tesla’s parts catalog showing new wheels and plaid badging, along with a Tesla promo spotted filming a Model 3 with a plaid badge, have only added to the excitement.

Minor leaks including mention of the “Ludicrous” word in Tesla’s website code and regulatory filings in Europe and Korea, have hinted at this upgrade being in the works.

Date and the Venue

The speculation has been further ignited by photos first appearing on Little Red Book, a Chinese social media app showing several Tesla Model 3s under wraps outside an event space potentially in Southern California.

A user who frequently posts about cars located in Los Angeles/Beijing has made a cryptic post hinting that Tesla’s high-performance Model 3 variant, potentially called the Model 3P or Model 3 Ludicrous, may be revealed sooner than expected, with an unveiling possibly happening on April 1st.


While April 1st is traditionally a day for pranks, raising skepticism, several factors suggest a potential legitimate unveiling from Tesla:

  • The unusual location of the Kennedy Space Center for the teaser photo shoot aligns with Tesla’s dramatic marketing.
  • The date itself holds significance, despite being April Fool’s Day.
  • Tesla has a history of unconventional product reveals.

If real, the high-performance Model 3 variant named “Ludicrous” would represent a major performance upgrade and continued innovation from Tesla in the electric vehicle market.
