Could an insane Model 3 P85D be on the way?

Have you all been following the truly crazy Model S P85D? 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, aided by the efficient power of two supplementary drive motors working in concert to provide all-wheel-drive propulsion.

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...5d_first_test/

Now, the Model 3 will weigh less than the Model S. Can you imagine the sort of performance of an all-wheel drive top-spec Model 3? Again, the 3 would have to weigh less than the Model S, so the Model 3 version should be even faster.

I am salivating at the prospect of a Model III P85D with 0-60 in 3.0 seconds performance.

It would be cool but I have so many questions. Would this be a vehicle that is actually available for people to buy? Would they build this since they already have the Model S P85D? Would it be a one-off vehicle that would mostly be for show?

I'd like to see it happen and from what i have been observing of Tesla and Elon, it's owner, it sure seems like something he would want to see happen.

The Model S P85D is a production model. Why would it be any different for the Model 3?

Also, as the Model 3 must cost less than a Model S P85D, can you imagine all of this performance, well-equipped at $75,000 or so? Oh my...
