June 20th Announcement

Ran across this today (sorry if it's been posted before, but I can't seem to find a search capability on this forum):

Musk confirmed during the Annual Shareholder Meeting that Tesla would demonstrate a way to refuel a Tesla Model S far quicker than filling the tank on a gasoline car, making the 20-minute rapid charge offered by the supercharger look positively slow. “I mentioned that there would be an announcement on June 20... not an announcement... a demonstration,” said Musk. He was responding to a question about a recent tweet he made about rapid refueling.

Also,
He criticized large dealership business models, especially the way they make money from car servicing. “Our philosophy on service is to never make a profit on service,” Musk said. “I think it’s terrible to make a profit on service.”

And,
Musk said we should expect a mid-cycle update, similar to the mid-cycle update common among the rest of the automotive industry. While Musk didn’t detail what the mid-cycle update would include, they traditionally include a few tweaks to body panels, improved interior, or other mildly updated specifications. A complete redesign of the Model S, Musk said, would happen in about six to seven years—a timeline not uncommon among mainstream automakers.
