    I read this thought from Teslamondo.
    Number four is the most interesting. It seemed slightly odd to me that Tesla didn't give any guidance on Model S & X for the latter part of 2017.
    Obviously they will be building some Model 3 during that time, but that will be on a different line, why would it affect Model S production so much that they couldn't give any guidance at all?
    So the Teslamondo thought is that Model 3 may have a feature set that handily leapfrogs the cars currently being produced, therefore there is no reveal until production actually starts and they can't avoid people seeing the car.
    That thought is both exciting and scary.

      Holy Green River, Batman! Not knowing what is afoot in Fremont, "let me remember things I don't know..."

      "You've got to know when to hold 'em." If you're holding a royal straight flush, you act like you're almost afraid to call.

      "...and the vision that was planted in my brain still remains within the sound of silence."

      You do not tell the troops to keep their powder dry unless you consider firing immanently and with deadly effect at close range. They were called the Minute Men, not the Millennials.

      Yes, come closer, said the spider to the fly. I'm Tesla, and I can't hurt you at all. You have such deliciously lovely wings, Chevy Bolt.

      (The only things that revealing the fully operational Death Star will do are to inform the intended victims or to give Emperor Palpatine another evil grin.)

      Bring out your planet smasher.

      Having watched the United Auto Workers for decades, I know this. They target for focus the company wherein they perceive that they have the most to gain, not the outfit about to drop dead of exhaustion.

      Comments saying that previous automakers wouldn't build a car like this seem to forget something. This is not your grandfather's Oldsmobile. (They really don't make Oldsmobile's like they used to, now, do they?)

      The major problem with the 21st century for people is that they've never seen the future coming at them at Warp Factor Nine before.

      Okay, then, how about a nice blast from the past? Queue Phil. Hi, Phil! It's 1981. We want our music back.

      "I can feel it coming in the air tonight. Oh Lord! But I've been waiting for this moment for all my life..."

      ...and if you get lost, come on home to Green River (seemingly about 400 miles from Fremont)

            As for the link to the article in the OP...

            Those seem like very reasonable points to me. I've remained skeptical of those who hold the position that Tesla must somehow 'protect' their Generation II cars, Model S and Model X, from the Model ☰. Those cars still have a lot of life left in them, Model S should last until at least mid-2020, and Model X to 2023 without issue. But they should be surpassed by the next Generation of cars, beginning with Model ☰ and later, Model Y. It is inevitable and necessary.

            The Model S has already paid for itself, selling the equivalent of 11 years worth of cars in only 4-1/2. The Model X seems poised to overtake AUDI Q7, BMW X5, and Mercedes-Benz GL/GLS in U.S. Sales during 2017, and is already ahead of Porsche Cayenne. Those cars will be too busy eating the lunch of their direct competitors to worry about their own Sales being somehow 'cannibalized' by Model ☰.

            Remain calm. All is well.

              I'm sure that the possum feels the same way.

                How long must one keep their powder dry? The weather is bad and the clock is ticking.

                Let's get on with the show already!?!

                  "Uhm... How will we know when it is time to 'not be nice'...?"

                  "I will tell you."

                    We're all like kids in the back of a car on a long road trip, asking every ten minutes: 'Are we there yet?... Are we there yet...?' :D
