Customers can already place an order for the Tesla Model Y, a mid-sized crossover SUV that won’t go into production until 2020. Tesla requires a $2,500 deposit to complete the order for the all-electric vehicle, according to information posted on its website.

Elon Musk has until March 11 to respond to SEC contempt motion

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has until March 11 to explain why he should not be held in contempt for violating a settlement agreement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC asked a judge Monday to hold Musk in contempt for violating the settlement agreement reached with the agency last year. Reuters was the first to report the judge’s order.

'Like Riding on a Dirt Road': First Reviews of Elon Musk's Underground Tunnel Are Disappointing

Elon Musk’s Boring Company unveiled its latest transportation experiment in Los Angeles last night.

This Elon Musk Interstellar parody is the weirdest thing you’ll see all day

After leaving Elon Musk’s big Boring Company test tunnel reveal Tuesday night, TechCrunch stumbled upon a gem that only the interwebs can provide. And because farting Teslas and an “entirely new system of transport,” just wasn’t enough for the last 24-hour Elon Musk news cycle, TechCrunch is sharing what it found. To be clear, this is a parody video. Elon Musk did not star in the movie Interstellar. The video’s creator, who goes by @KaziooFX on Twitter, didn’t use AI or neural nets to create ...

Here's What Driving Through Elon Musk's Boring Company Tunnel Looks Like

Elon Musk’s ‘vision for transport’ is a 3D network of tunnels for autonomous electric vehicles

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s vision of an “entirely new system of transport,” which he unveiled Wednesday night at a splashy event in Hawthorne, California, wasn’t a reusable rocket like the ones he’s building at his nearby SpaceX headquarters. Nor is it an electric vehicle, like the Teslas he is producing at a factory in Fremont, California. Tonight, Musk showed off a 1.14-mile test tunnel — that snakes its way underneath 120th Street in the city of Hawthorne — that his other busines...

Elon Musk's Boring Company set to unveil its first Los Angeles-area tunnel

The Boring Company, Elon Musk's underground transit venture, planned an unveiling of its first tunnel on Tuesday, two years after the billionaire entrepreneur complained about Los Angeles traffic and vowed to "just start digging" as a remedy. The tunnel, an initial proof-of-concept, has been excavated along a path that runs not through Los Angeles but beneath the tiny adjacent municipality of Hawthorne, where Musk's Boring Company and his SpaceX rocket firm are both headquartered. The Boring C...

The 36 most wild things said by Elon Musk (TSLA)

Most CEOs tend to choose their words carefully, fearing the consequences of saying anything that could be deemed controversial. But Elon Musk is not nearly as cautious, sometimes appearing to speak his mind and deal with the consequences later. The CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company has inspired intense devotion and attracted controversy as a result of his public statements. How Musk handles himself in the future will determine, in part, how effective of a leader he is as his compani...

Elon Musk’s Boring Co. drops LA Westside tunnel plan

The Boring Company’s big dig plans hit a snag this week, as the Elon Musk-led project announced that it would abandon plans to dig a massive tunnel beneath Los Angeles’ 405 freeway and Sepulveda Boulevard. Musk and co. debuted the plan to drill on L.A.’s Westside last year, but ultimately reversed course after local lawsuits looked to subject the project to a review of its potential environment impact. The Boring Company had sought to fast track the proposed 2.7 mile tunnel, and a pair of cit...

The Boring Company goes brick-and-mortar with The Brick Store

Elon Musk has shot out some crazy, unbelievable tweets over the last year, but he wasn’t joking about the bricks. Musk has started a company called The Brick Store LLC to produce and sell bricks, according to public documents obtained by TechCrunch. The new company, which was founded in July , will be managed by Steve Davis, the ex-SpaceX engineer who is also running The Boring Company (TBC).

"Disturbingly long."

It's "disturbingly long" to Elon Musk. pic.twitter.com/xGJ4Bc6HpL — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 3, 2018 Is it not disturbingly long to us ordinary human beings? And yet we submit to enclosure in tubes hurled far up into the air. Is the buried tube more disturbing?It's clever to call the company The Boring Company, and not because puns are so damned wonderful but because boredom is the opposite of terror.

The Boring Company's Not a Flamethrower is a joke compared to actual flamethrowers

I own a propane torch, so I know one when I see one. The Boring Company's Not a Flamethrower? It's definitely a propane torch... which, I suppose, means that Musk's marketing department is pretty much on the mark. To drive the point of the Not a Flamethrower's not being a flamethrower home, the folks at DriveTanks.com subjected the Not a Flamethrower to the Pepsi challenge against a Vietnam-era M9 flamethrower and a XM34. Seeing how much more destructive these two weapons are compared to Mus...

The Boring Company proposes hyperloop to Dodger Stadium

The Boring Company announced a proposal yesterday to construct a 3.6 mile hyperloop to carry fans from the city directly to Dodger Stadium in less than four minutes for about $1. This proposed loop, called the “Dugout Loop,” would run from Dodger Stadium to privately owned Boring Co. property in either the Los Feliz, East Hollywood or Rampart Village neighborhoods. To increase public transit use and in turn decrease traffic congestion, the company plans to build in the vicinity of the LA Metr...

Elon Musk's tunneling company just unveiled a plan to transport people in Los Angeles to Dodgers Stadium in only four minutes — but the timing of the announcement is curious

Elon Musk has been under fire lately as many have questioned the overall health of Tesla, which has been recently scrutinized over its finances, workplace conditions, and treatment of employees. Reports this week have said the SEC may be looking into Tesla. On Wednesday, the focus shifted to a different Elon Musk company, The Boring Company, which announced plans to build a tunnel that could transport people from downtown Los Angeles to Dodgers Stadium in just four minutes.

Elon Musk’s Boring Company proposes building a tunnel to Dodger Stadium

Elon Musk’s tunneling company has proposed a solution to the traffic problems fans experience getting to Dodgers games. His Boring Company on Wednesday proposed a 3.6-mile underground tunnel to Dodger Stadium called the Dugout Loop – a “zero-emissions, high-speed, underground public transportation system” that would take fans from one of three Metro Red Line stations to the stadium in less than four minutes. Instead of driving to Chavez Ravine in stop-and-go traffic, passengers would load into e...

The British diver from the Thai cave rescue that Elon Musk called a 'pedo' is considering suing the billionaire

A British diver involved in the Thai cave rescue mission has indicated he could sue Elon Musk for defamatory comments. Musk called the diver a "pedo" on Sunday before later deleting his tweet. The insult came after Unsworth criticized the "kid-sized sub" that the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company delivered to Thailand as being a "PR stunt."
