Will the proposed Gigafactory help reduce battery prices on all of Tesla's vehicle models or just the Model E? I can only imagine a model S performance at $60K if the battery pack cost was reduced significantly. Or will Tesla just use the gains in production and cost efficiency as more revenue? I can't imagine paying the same high price for a model S or X after battery costs are reduced. This idea also applies to all the tech that is included in the vehicle. The same 17" monitor shouldn't cost the same next year as technology and production increases. Unless the tech gets upgraded and new useful features are added of course.
