Will there be a Press Release by Tesla Motors prior to Elon Musk's 4th announcement (regarding Superchargers)? Conference Call?

Will there be a press release by Tesla Motors before the 4th announcement?
Just like they did before the 2nd announcement (Finance/Lease).
And will there also be a conference call with Elon Musk?

And will there also be Tweets from Elon Musk? Just like: "Am going to put my money where my mouth is in v major way".

I am asking this because all this was also expected to happen before the 3rd announcement, but it did not happen at all.
There was just an article, and that's how they brought the news of the 3rd announcement.

What scenario will be used for the 4th announcement?

It's a mystery.

We did just get this "Seems to be some stormy weather over in Shortville these days" from Elon Musk on twitter.

Curt Renz | April 25, 2013

Musk's latest tweet at 10:54 a.m. CDT "Announcement of new @TeslaMotors strategy tomorrow. Tesla owners will like this."

More interesting is that in reply @LiamSellers asked: "is this part 3 in the 5 part announcement trilogy?"

And Elon Musk replied: "yes".

Now I am confused, because I thought that the news regarding the 80 Tesla Model S loaners, was the 3rd announcement. But I seem to be wrong about that.

I also thought the loaner announcement was the service announcement.

However, according to Reuters today, "A spokeswoman for the company said Friday's announcement will focus on service."

I hope this is not about Elon donating $50K to improve his commute by helping widen the 405 freeway.

If these orchestrated announcements are nothing more than marketting spin, the stock is going to suffer along with the company's credibility. The Friday timing already has me suspicious.

The 4th announcement (regarding Superchargers) will be in May 2013, after the earnings call of Q1 2013 (May 8th 2013).

@Benz, where did you get that info?

Benz | April 26, 2013

@ Jolinar

The 4th announcement (regarding Superchargers) will be at least 2 weeks after today's 3rd announcement. Elon Musk had mentioned a cadans of 2 weeks. And the earnings call of Q1 2013 will be within 2 weeks from now (May 8th 2013). So, therefore I think that the 4th announcement will be a few days after the earnings call of Q1 2013. And that means that it is very likely to be in May 2013.
