17 October Tesla surprise product announcement

Tesla is to make a surprising product announcement coming 17th of October...
https://www.inverse.com/article/2195...duct-is-coming

Everyone is guessing what it will be.
AutoPilot 2.0?
The Model Y, a SUV based on the Model 3?
A new PowerWall/PowerPack?
The infamous Snake Charger?

As Musk states that it will be something "unexpected by most" it is probably none of the above.
We'll know in 5 days from now.

Musk is such a tease.

But, hey... if it works!

Amazing they're generating demand for their products without having to spend any money on conventional advertising.

So the surprise announcement was:

DELAYING THE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE 17th TO TODAY, the 19th.

Even their surprise announcements are late.

Huh yeah. I actually forgot about it

Elon Musk pushes back 'unexpected product' announcement to allow more 'refinement'

So it is something where refinement is needed hard enough to delay the introduction. Wonder if it is a wearable.
