Anyone know of a live source for coverage of this press call? Last time this happened there was some random web site we found but I cannot recall where.

They should really only do press releases for these types of announcements. I learned my lesson from the previous ones and sell before them so easy money for me I guess.

My take-aways so far on most impactful stock movers:

1) Silicon annode. This is tremendously huge.
2) Annual pack upgrades (alternative revenue stream to ongoing lack of maintenance on the cars)

New battery chemistry.....interesting.......a few threads I know around the forum will be on fire later today.....:-D

Am I understanding correctly that the 90kWh battery is a 3000$ "option" for the 85kWh pack?

Model III not for three years! I hope he is just referring to full-scale production and not initial production...

Live blog at:
https://transportevolved.com/2015/07/17/liveblog-tesla-motors-super-secret-surprise-announcement/


Update: this site says 'a bit more than 2 years'. Hopefully that is more accurate! http://blogs.marketwatch.com/thetel...conference-call-expected-to-focus-on-model-s/

From Claudia Assis in the MarketWatch blog:

"In a separate press statement, Tesla says Model X is on track for deliveries in two months and the Model 3, the planned mass-market car, in a bit more than two years."
