    Something to be announced today... Stay tuned.

    Premarkets: 4 things to know before the open

    And Tesla(TSLA) shares are also being watched closely as the company holds a conference call at 12 p.m. ET to discuss "an update" from the firm. The company recently unveiled a new vehicle called the Model 3. Shares in the electric car manufacturer have rallied by just over 20% in the last month.

    Lower S and X sales than predicted. Enhancing the S to get sales back up. Reminder on the M3 presale numbers.

    They already stated that Model S/X orders were above numbers delivered in Q1 "by a wide margin." My WAG is announcing the redesign, pricing change and possibly plan for Model 3 deliveries (possible capital/debt raise) given the greater than expected demand.

    Or it could just be an introduction of the Model X to the Design Studio, which Elon already announced would be available today.

    Where is this "investor call" coming from? I think it's a press call.

    My guesses: (pure speculation and wishful thinking)

    $5k increase on base Model S but premium package and autopilot convenience included.

    High performance firmware update for Ludicrous cars finally achieving 10.9 second quarter mile in P90DL.

    100kwh battery pack option for $7500. P100D Ludicrous with 0-60 at 2.6 seconds and quarter mile at 10.7 seconds. Existing owners can also buy new pack for about $30k with trade-in of existing pack.

    Ventilated seats. New standard center console. New front fascia. New storage in doors. All retrofittable.

    :)

    Can you stream it? I don't see it listed on their Press Release page.

    Yes, plan for M3 definitely needs augmentation, since i also think they were not expecting this number of unique pre orders. Plan would include another factory, since it will take several years to get running...

    If this call/press release/whatever is legit, which it seems to be, the reason they chose early AM PDT might have to do with announcing a factory in Europe (France?)...and another funding round to get it up to speed in 2-3 years. Of course I wouldn't mind at all if they threw in the info on the Model S refresh and the 100kWh battery.

    Elon also tweeted this. One can only hope he recovers soon and his head injury is not too bad.
