Different battery cells and track mode avoid overheating. So not comparable to any other Tesla.

Good for about 4 laps before the batteries get too hot and power is reduced. I'd be surprised if it lasted a lap around the Nordschleife on full power.

Not according to Road and Track who tested the Model 3 at Lime Rock Park.
