I doubt this will be a whole new model. Probably just a different Model S - like the D85 instead of P85 or something like that.

Model D, is that what the new sedan is called?

The most common reply I get from folks who fall in love with my car is, "I can't wait till they come out with that more affordable Tesla". Well I just received a tweet from Elon, looks like they're about to reveal the next model!

I remember on an earnings call a while back, when asked about high R&D costs, Elon said something like "In the past we've shown all our cards. We're no longer doing that. R&D is high because we're working on things you don't know about." I thought maybe auto-pilot was ahead of schedule. A new line would definitely be an interesting twist.

If we're throwing out speculations, what about a whole new model - the Tesla Model D, say a pickup?

It doesn't make sense to me that they would use a whole new model number for the S with a second motor.

Dual motor (Model S) and something else (Model X)

I tend to agree...which makes me happy as I don't really want and X, but want AWD for New England winters. I don't know about the 'something else'. What do you think it could be about the Model X? Maybe an even bigger battery pack?
