The upgrade will be compatible in all Tesla cars made in the past two years, Musk said in a series of tweets on Thursday.

"The SEC has issued subpoenas to Tesla in connection with... certain projections that we made for Model 3 production rates during 2017 and other public statements relating to Model 3 production".
