Anyone have any idea when we would see the P70 updated with the Kaby Lake 7th Generation Intel processor? Seems like the flagship portable workstation should have the newer processor and if I understand it correctly it should be easy to do since the chip architecture is similar.

I would guess Jan 2017 at the earliest? I suspect they'll wait until both the updated Kaby Lake quad cores and nVidia P series quadro's are available.
I wouldn't get too excited about Kaby Lake for high end quad core mobile workstations it's a modest spec bump and isn't an architectural change. Intel have dropped their tick tock roadmap.
The next gen quadro on the other hand is a different matter, the manufacturing process shrink to 16nm on the 10 series consumer cards has resulted in a substantial performance and efficiency gain.
