Tesla has a mystery project underway in Texas

We never get bored with Musk, do we?

Elon Musk made headlines around a year ago after his 'beef' with County Alameda over lockdown restrictions. Musk said Tesla would move away from California as he felt the company hadn't been treated fairly considering it's the only car factory in the state and employs over 20,000 people. While Tesla's plant in Fremont (Bay Area) is still operational, the company has indeed began shifting its focus to the new plant they're building in Austin, Texas and the EV manufacturer is apparently working on a another mysterious plant for the so-called 'Bobcat Project'.

Tesla owns 2,500+ acres in Austin, only some of which is usable to build human-made structures such as sidewalks, parking lots and buildings under Austin's building regulations. The new project - whatever that might be - will be developed in the yet-to-be-built Terafactory, a stone's throw from the main Gigafactory, which will reportedly be up and running by the end of the year.

No one knows what this Bobcat Project is all about it but the company just added 300 job postings on their website, and they say they will eventually end up employing at least 10,000 at the factory. Some say Musk is thinking about moving SpaceX HQ to Texas. I guess we'll find out soon enough. Probably via Musk's twitter account.

What do you think is happening over there? Feel free 2 share in the comments

  • Probably a big fat battery to help the national grid or something. Seems rather daft when there are things like Ammonia and hydrogen which are both significantly more energy dense energy carriers if you ask me though.

    • Maybe? But Tesla is a company that works with electricity, that is their specialty. Ammonia and hydrogen are for companies that will focus on them. Like Ticonderoga makes pencils and other companies make pens.

    • Yes but there are several other ways of storing electricity that are cheaper, safer and more efficient such as using ammonia and hydrogen.

  • It's a launch pad for a flying saucer

  • We now shouldn't be harsh to Elon as he has now claimed he has Aspergers.

    His cars are still badly made and his rockets pollute more than a diesel bus when they take off.

    • You can say that about any space rocket. I actually support SpaceX, as it is really the only thing keeping America's space program running.

    • At least his rockets haven't gone off course and decided to head to another continent (The China via Indian Ocean rocket)
