1) Does anyone know if future improvements to Supercharger capabilities (higher volts/amps) can be realized by the Model 3 with decreased time to charge? Are limited in how fast they can charge to a permanent 130 miles in 30 min? I'm disappointed in the supercharger charge times as a big attraction to Tesla vs other EVs was supercharging network and getting to 80% charge in under 30 minutes. It looks like the standard battery will take about 40 minutes to get to 80%? (130 miles in 30 min)
2) What about reserving supercharger spaces for long distance travel through the app or console? We could coordinate times through an app and be warned/advise of upcoming reservations on the supercharger we're using. Perhaps a disconnect and penalize could be used if you take/overstay another's reservation, and offer reward/incentive if you move timely. Ultimately, have autonomous feature to let the autopilot move your car to/from the supercharger to a non-charge parking space when reservation is up or charge complete? Would have to automate the supercharger connection.
