I'm ready to buy an X or S but I'm afraid that I'm going to buy today and the next gen of battery and V3 charging will be announced tomorrow leaving my new tesla obsolete. Any one have an idea when the new technology will be available?

It’s always hard to know when the next big thing is coming with Tesla. The latest big update was the “Raven” which came out pretty recent (~6 months ago), which was an updated front motor and air suspension. The current models also can charge at 200+ kWh so they are Supercharger v3 compatible, but aren’t quite at the 250 kWh that the long range 3s are getting. Since the cars only get those higher kW for such a short time, in the real world it’s not a big difference. The next big thing that we know of is the “Plaid” powertrain, which if you’re looking for the highest end Model S, have $150k to spend and can wait a year, then that’s probably worth waiting for. Otherwise, there really isn’t any evidence or rumors of some big update coming in the next year. Yeah, we’ve hear of an interior update coming, but Elon has said it isn’t, and there’s no real timeline on that. I also think there are lot of people that prefer the dual screen setup for the current S & X over the one screen in the 3. Good luck. [removed]

no. Tesla does not announce any major changes coming until it essentially is ready to roll out of the factory. But that said, a car bought today will be far from obsolete anytime in the near future

An original Tesla Model X P90D is still a kick-butt vehicle, even though it now has an "older" battery that is no longer offered. I suggest taking a look at some X P90D prices to help calm your fears about exactly what it will mean when a newer battery is introduced.
