    I'm betting it outlines the "Tesla Energy" side of things. Outlining how home-based (distributed) batteries, solar panels, and electric cars can replace coal and oil as major energy sources.

      is it cheaper to buy 2 million square feet of solar panels for the Gigafactory or solar city?

      We won't be able to get the really bad gas guzzlers of the road until Tesla makes a 1/2 ton pickup.

      Why is it that every guy with a short stick has to have a big ugly truck?

        Badback,
        I heard it's a coping mechanism.

        Blackout.
        I want one, but the FAA approvals are going to take FOREVER.
        I would love to see Elon and the Rutan brothers start Tesla Air.

        The Rutan Model 76 Voyager was the first aircraft to fly around the world without stopping or refueling.

          Elon and JB have mentioned a second version of the Roadster, the Model Y and a truck. Since this is likely to be a ten year plan again I expect at least those three vehicles to be in the plan, possibly also the mass transit solution that Elon briefly hinted at. The proposed acquisition of Solar City with the goal of creating a sun to home to road total clean energy package for the average consumer is the future of the Tesla business model. Probably the key plank of the plan. A production plan update for the 3 and whether pencils are really down at this point seems more likely for the Gigafactory opening at the end of the month.

          I am fascinated by the concept of a totally sun to home to car package. I know very little about it but will definitely be doing more research. (Gives me something to do while waiting for my Model 3!) I would be interested to see a consumer cost analysis of his proposed ideas on this front.

          V2 of the masterplan will focus on the shifting focus of Tesla as a vertically integrated sustainable energy company. This is way bigger than vehicles. Elon is using totally bad-ass cars as a trojan horse to mainstream and fast-track sustainable energy production, distribution and conversion of the US electric supply to a 21st century smart-grid. Buckle your seatbelts!

            It is amazing how the media is all over Tesla/Musk in the last week. He can tweet anything and they would all have an article about it.

              I keep hitting refresh but, ....
              now it is about dawn at Cape Canaveral.
              I think he might be sleeping before tweeting.

              As further evidence of this, Tesla has updated its mission statement. It used to say that the mission was to "accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable transport". Now it says that its mission is to "accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy".

              I just hope he gets some sleep. A plan for a decade can wait a day or two. I did stay up to watch the landing, still amazing but this will probably seem normal in a year.

                My passing the time in here is a bit of a distraction.
                YOU are making history !
                you tweeted to me less than 2 hours after my post.
                Dude please sleep I can wait. I one time only did 105 hours without sleep. I was wrecked for weeks.
                take care of your self, we need you doing great things so we can live in your shadow.
