When Tesla unveiled its much-anticipated mass-market Model 3 on March 31, it had fulfilled part of a “Secret Master Plan” that CEO Elon Musk had penned in 2006. The plan set forth a series of goals the company looked to achieve in order to accelerate humanity’s transition away from fossil fuels. Build a sports car (Roadster), use that money to build an affordable car (Model S), use that money to build an even more affordable car (Model 3), and provide zero emission electric power generation options while not telling anyone about the plan.
Now that Tesla has largely achieved the stated goals from its original secret masterplan, it was a matter of time before this plan got extended. Musk revealed in a tweet posted today, the very same day of Nikola Tesla’s birthday, that a “Top Secret Tesla Masterplan, Part 2” will be published as early as this week.

Whether the plan is related to Tesla’s proposed buyout of SolarCity or has any correlation to the “Part 2” reveal of the Model 3 is anyone’s guess, but we know it’ll likely extend on the company’s mission to transition to a fossil fuel-free world.
