    Maybe I overlooked it, but is it known when Tesla plans next factory production upgrade? From what Elon said, they expect to double capacity by the end of 2015.

    thx

    This was in email titled 'Latest Updates from Tesla' sent out from Tesla Motors:

    With the introduction of Dual Motor and Autopilot, there will be no further significant platform changes to Model S for about a year. We continue to see rapid growth elsewhere with the construction of the Gigafactory, the spread of Superchargers, and increased vehicle production.

    I think there should be a body shop upgrade in the beginning of 2015. And then paint shop.

    Elon Musk - Chairman and CEO
    And I should say that -- another thing that's going to be -- see a big upgrade, really big upgrade, is the paint shops. There are few cases where advanced CapEx spending makes sense, even though it's going to pay off in sort of two to three years, but it's just such a big improvement that you kind of want to do it even at a high discount rate. So our paint shop is being upgraded. It's going to be the most advanced automotive paint shop in the world.

    I am almost positive that this will be a new battery which will first appear in the X for it's early August Signature deliveries. But all is still speculation now.
