    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?

    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."

    Every time those reporters write Ludacris instead of Ludicrous I loose faith in the human race and want to pull my eyes out......
