Tesla CEO Elon Musk is during it again. In a classically mysterious twitter to his some-more than 5.5 million supporters progressing this week, Musk teased that a new product proclamation was entrance on Oct 17.
What done a twitter even some-more intriguing is a fact that Musk pronounced a new Tesla ( product was “unexpected by most.” )
Musk hinted that a news won’t have to do with Tesla’s argumentative partnership devise with SolarCity (, a choice appetite association run by dual of Musk’s cousins. A apart Tesla/SolarCity eventuality was function on Oct 28. )
It’s also doubtful that Musk will be articulate about his rocket association SpaceX given he clearly indicated that it was Tesla that would have a new product.

So what does Musk have adult his sleeve?
Musk is a showman who has been famous to oversell his teasing announcements, and CNNMoney’s automobile guru Peter Valdes-Dapena doesn’t consider a news will be all that exciting. He told me that it’s doubtful to be a new vehicle.
He thinks it could be an updated chronicle of one of Tesla’s existent products or a some-more minute demeanour during a arriving Model 3 — a “affordable” Tesla that’s due out during a finish of 2017.

There are rumors that it could be a reworked chronicle of Tesla’s Model X SUV — a car many are referring to as a Model Y.
But Twitter users and automobile and tech bloggers are anticipating it will be many some-more than that.
After all, Musk already has indicated in his new Master Plan for Tesla that a pickup truck, heavy-duty load trucks for burden shipping and some arrange of mass movement car could be in a works.
So maybe a Tesla Semi or a Tesla Bus will be a product announcement?
Musk also hinted that Tesla will one day let a business share their cars with other people — if/when unconstrained pushing vehicles get a immature light from regulators opposite a country.
In other words, people could spin their Teslas into mini-Ubers and lease them out to people who need a lift. (Or Lyft.)
It seems doubtful that Tesla will launch a loyal ridesharing use subsequent week though. It’s substantially too soon.
But one gossip that kept resurfacing this week is that Tesla might launch a motorcycle famous as a Model M.
The automobile blog Silodrome even has a mockup of what it could demeanour like. (It creatively posted it final year though, not in response to Musk’s latest tweet.)
Luckily, we usually have to wait a few some-more days to find out only accurately what Musk is unveiling.
Some have even joked that it could be a Tony Stark-styled Iron Man suit, wise given Robert Downey. Jr. has pronounced he’s modeled his chronicle of a Avengers impression partly on Musk.
What is certain yet is that nothing of a wacky, yet hilarious, ideas combined by a satire Bored Elon Musk Twitter comment will be announced Monday.
It’s too bad though. One of Bored Elon Musk’s many new proposals? A worker to harass co-workers to demeanour during their inbox some-more frequently.
Maybe Musk will announce on Monday that Tesla is shopping all of Bored Elon Musk’s feign patents? A child can dream.
