2 days ago our Model 3 downloaded a 5.1 Gb file from amazon web services. The name of the file was NA-2019.6-10236.ssq the link had some reference to autopilot....I wonder if it is related

Maybe a Semi update with a demonstration of caravan mode(elephants).

I think some sort of semi update is an underrated candidate at this point. It's been in development for awhile, isn't new hardware and therefore wouldn't necessarily merit an event such as the Model Y reveal, and any substantial milestone achievements (namely production start date) would make an announcement viable.

Doesn't tie in with the Tusk / Elephant / ET angle, though. Extended-range Truck? Lol...who knows.

It will not be the Model Y as that would cut into Model 3 sales. It will be the pickup truck instead. That is a model that shares very little demand overlap with current Tesla products. They will also release details on Supercharger V3 as well as some Semi updates.

Joint venture with Ford to make a line of pickup trucks -- Tesla providing the powertrain and batteries, and Ford providing the bodies and assembly at a plant that was previously announced as closing. Model ET.

If it is Supercharger V3, and based on Elon's past statements of it being cheaper and able to do higher power, these are my thoughts on what it could be (and based on what i've read elsewhere):
  • powerpacks (to help with demand charges)
  • higher max output from a single stall (more amps, increased voltage for future cars)
  • a new power distribution system where power can be distributed among a larger group of stalls (like 4 instead of 2) or even all stalls (ex. in an 8-stall station, instead of 120kW per 2 stalls, there's just one giant pool of 480kW or whatever the max power is for the site).
    • Eliminates having to worry about stall pairing even at the higher powered stalls (vs just urban stalls right now) and will allow cars with uneven charge capabilities to not have to worry about where to plug in (like a 2020 Roadster and Model S 60 charging next to each other). Also could lay the foundation for the megacharger architecture.
  • return of the charging snake or its successor
Kind of related and is a long shot, but hopefully an update on adapters for the European and US market.

New enhanced fart app with a wider selection of sound tracks, shuffle and repeat mode? For the front seats it ties into the weight sensors. The larger the occupant, the higher the volume goes.
