    Has there been any additional hints as to when this might be, other than "closer to launch date"?

    Not even a hint. Hmmmm What are we going to do for the next year or so?

    Maybe I'll take up painting.

    Wish we had some more info but nope. It seems that Elon has been relatively quiet lately regarding the 3 in general.

    You are absolutely correct. He's still tweeting, but not about Tesla.

    It would be great if it was this year but I'm doubtful. Perhaps close to the initial Chevy Bolt deliveries but I'll put my guess in for February.

    I thought I heard something about before the end of the year, but I don't have a source.

    I read the same information: end of the year (2016). Unofficial of course...

    Elon said it will be an obvious thing. We don't technically know if its about Model 3... he said those words in Code Conference.



    watch 39:40 for about 1 min or so..

    Although I am an avid fan of Elon M......if he said something more than a month ago...I can' hang my hat on it. Its sad, but its historical.

    EM is too busy "Osborne-ing" the S and X with irresponsible Tweets on future state vaporware. How many people are delaying ordering and delivery of an S and X waiting for the next, mythical hardware release?

    One day, it will be his undoing. Sad.

    If you go back and watch/listen to something he said 10 years ago about what he expected Tesla to achieve in the next 10 years, all pretty much has come to be. His timeline expectations to get from point A to B may not be accurate, but what he says does happen.
    I wouldn't bet against him doing what he says, but an over/under on the release date is a sure thing ;)

    He was asked about autonomy and given the recent reports about Autopilot 2 hardware etc. that's what the event will be about: full demonstration of what Autopilot 2.0 is capable of.

    Since Tesla Generation III vehicles have been The GOAL since the inception of the company, the Model S and Model X were 'Osborned' from day one.

    I agree, but I was just pointing out that that event, whenever that might be, will probably be about AP 2.0 rather than about Model 3 second reveal.

    I hope it is about Model 3 though and that he's on time.

    If I were planning the second reveal I'd do it very soon after the Bolt reviews hit the internet so folks will have something to compare to.

    This is what I said the last time this topic came up. My guess is that R2 will be around the end of March.

    It sounds logical, but I am not sure Model 3 is ready to be revealed yet. I am not sure when EM or Tesla were setting their internal date for Model 3 2nd reveal, if they consciously thought about when Bolt reveal date may be.

    But, we have this article here..

    Tesla Model 3: Tesla is ordering enough parts for a fleet of ~300 prototypes

    I wonder if these have anything to do with 2nd reveal. Maybe just for internal crash testing ??

    I bet you could get some details out of Elon Musk in exchange for explaining that latest SpaceX anomaly...

    I would love it if the Model ☰ Reveal Part II had Elon begin by congratulating General Motors for the brave release of the BOLT. He could speak of how well it had sold and how that was a good (though perhaps tentative) step in the direction he'd like to see the rest of the traditional automotive industry move toward. Then, it would be extra special cool if he were then to show off an either free or low cost completely unauthorized by GM adapter that would allow a BOLT to use a Supercharger in order to demonstrate Tesla's dedication to a proper competitive environment among EVs. Perhaps with video playing behind him of someone easily and successfully fast charging a BOLT at a Supercharger.
