Tesla Model 3 performance was participating in an annual sports car comparison in Sweden which were published this week. In this comparison several car magazines reporters drive same cars several days and give comments as well as overall points and rankings. Track times are driven by same semi professional ex competition driver (already same guy more than 3 years on the row). All cars are road condition and best lap time is recorded only when two consequential times are within 0,2s. While these reporters have very likely driven all possible new road legal cars during last years, I think this is very unbiased comparison of Tesla Model 3 under the heading "sports car". In reality it should not ranked like sports car, but seems to be many claims that it is.
Anyway lap times Tesla were 11th and ranking 20th out of 21 cars. Tesla got a lot of claims for handling and breaks especially in high speed.
Cars were:
Aston Martin Vantage
Audi R8 V10 Perfor-mance
BAC Mono
BMW M2 Competition
BMW M850i xDrive
BMW Z4 M40i
Cupra Ateca
Hyundai i30 N Fastback Perfor-mance Pack
Lotus EvoraGT410 Sport
McLaren 600 LT Spider
McLaren Senna
Mercedes-AMG A 35 4Matic
Mercedes-AMG E 53 4Matic
Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door 63 S
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991)
Porsche 911Carrera S (992)
Porsche 718 Boxster T
Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy

Toyota GR Supra
Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR

Do you think it's gonna beat the next-gen M3? It's heavier (probably, since battery packs weigh hundreds of lbs), and it has 20 less horsepower ( if those rumors are to be believed about the M3 having 503 horses), but the instant torque of EVs and all wheel drive means it will be faster in a straight line. Around corners, I'm not so sure. But here's to hoping the best car wins.

0-100: 3.90s
0-200: 13.78s
100-200: 9.88s
