    From reading the Electrek article it sounds like it's simply a "VIP" tour for investors to see where their money is going. Elon will no doubt give a juicy quote or two, as he always does, but it doesn't sound like this is intended to be particularly newsworthy.

    Wow--Abby (avatar) is 13-1/2 years old from a now retired San Diego breeder with essentially identical coloring to your male. Smart? Yes, brilliant. She is a fully trained certified medical service dog--goes everywhere (..search these forums for a video of the Gigafactory opening party and some side comments regarding the fact that I had Abby there with me...).

    No, it sounds like it was just an investor reassurance that everything is going well. Nothing new here.

    Maybe Elon was practicing giving Boring updates ;)
