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.
