    I'm getting itchy for a newer Model S and a range of 300+ is a good enough excuse. Is there any word on these coming up the pipeline? TIA

    I have an early 85, nearly 3 years old. Love her but I'd like a new one and thought I should wait until the battery range was significantly increased.

    Tesla does not announce changes in advance. Everything you read about such a change is speculation.

    Have the 70D here. Also curious to when this will be but expect in 1-3 years.

    Now that I know the car, know how range is impacted by weather, speed, etc., will likely upgrade sometime. Two factors though I'd say have to be possible: 1) 300+ real miles, so perhaps a 100/110/120D, and 2) next generation of autopilot hardware as there is room for improvement there.

    Those are the biggies and nice to haves would be some interior refinements, adjustable belt heights, ventilated seats, and perhaps some other techy enhancements are always welcomed...
