They aren't the only manufacturer petitioning. So far the NHTSA isn't budging.

Here is the latest test: https://www.nhtsa.gov/sites/nhtsa.do...518_v3-tag.pdf

Any predictions about things that might wow us in the reveal? Musk usually has something radical to reveal besides the car itself.

He will explain why he changed his mind and is keeping the Tesla dealerships open?

Probably self-explanatory. They thought they'd save money shutting them all down, then quickly realized they'd lose more sales income than the money they'd save by closing down.

There could be data or dates about the Semi and the Roadster, or the pickup we've seen wrapped on a trailer may show up, the Model S is getting long in the tooth so it may get a revamp, and then there's the 2 or 3 years in the future when Tesla would reveal a smaller $25,000 model...

And the model Y...

Mystery solved. The Wall Street Journal did some digging in Tesla’s latest quarterly report. It would cost Tesla $1.6 billion to break their leases and close all of their stores. Leases are 5 to 10 years.

Might as well convert them to sales/service centers and have loaner cars for those needing service, and the same cars could be demo units for test drives too.

Tesla will keep many of its stores open, even if sales move exclusively online.
Moreover, they will raise the price of the luxury models some starting March 18th.
I expect a rush of sales of those this week...

Here's straight from the horses mouth:

There won't be a reveal of the pickup truck coming Thursday.
