The Tesla Model 3 is more than just an electric car - it is a pivotal point in the history of cars. An affordable electric car that has some of the most advanced technologies, including Tesla’s ‘Autopilot’, was in the works for multiple years now, and tomorrow will be the day Tesla can officially show off their car.
Last week, Tesla completed production of its first Model 3. Tomorrow, it will be delivered to the first customers - employees of SpaceX and Tesla, who will be testing the car for bugs before shipping it to the public.
The Model 3 is essentially the final step in Elon Musk’s Master Plan in making the electric car for everyone a reality. However, this will be far from the last car we will see from Tesla. In the coming months, Tesla could reveal an electric pick-up as well as a full sized electric truck. With Musk’s ever-growing popularity and majorly positive reviews about Tesla, the company will hope to become a big player in the automobile market in the near future.
That said, you can watch tomorrow’s event live on Tesla’s website.

The Tesla Model S P100D broke the production car record for acceleration in Motor Trend's test: 0-60 in 2.28 seconds
You read that number right. No street legal production car has, until now, done the 0-60 mph run in under 2.3 seconds.
Motor Trend tested the Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous+ (Easter-egg) mode and pitted it against the Porsche 911 Turbo S and Ferrari LaFerrari - and the results were astounding. Not only did the Model S accelerate the quickest, but it also hit the 60 miles per hour mark in just 2.28 seconds.
The Electric GT Championship will hold its first season this year, and this modified Tesla Model S will be the chief (and the only) competitor. The competition was announced last year with a modified Model S P85D, but the new car is based on the latest P100D model. And yes, it does 0-60 in 2 seconds flat (0-62mph or 0-100 km/h in 2.1 seconds).
