- Elon Musk tweeted that his Boring Company will unveil a section of its tunnel on December 10th
- The Boring Company hasn’t officially confirmed the date yet
- Are we running on real time or Elon Time?
Elon Musk and Twitter. Strange things happen when the two are combined. Divers are accused of being pedos, 420 jokes result in $20 million fines, and key details about Musk’s companies are casually revealed.
The most recent revelation is that his tunnel construction company, The Boring Company, plans to unveil part of its underground transportation network to the public on December 10th. “The first tunnel is almost done,” Musk tweeted. “Opens Dec 10.”
A follower asked, “real time or Elon Time?” Musk replied: “I think real.” The bookmakers seem to agree.

Elon Musk has a long history of missed targets and deadlines, so take the December 10th date with a grain of salt. Musk is currently having a weird one on twitter — with tweets like “i🖤anime” and “Send me ur dankest memes!!” — and The Boring Company hasn’t officially confirmed the date yet.
Earlier this year, the controversial billionaire tweeted that he planned to take Tesla private at $420, falsely claiming that he had secured funding. That prompted a criminal investigation and Musk was forced to step down as chairman of Tesla (though he remains the CEO). He’s facing SEC fraud charges, an FBI probe, and tens of millions of dollars in fines. On top of that, he may still get sued for calling a Thailand diver a “pedo.”
With so much on his plate, it wouldn’t be surprising for Musk to push back this self-imposed deadline. Tesla plans to bring the Model 3 to Europe and China early next year, and Space X is still trying to colonize Mars. We don’t know where the tunnel sits on Musk’s list of priorities.

The Boring project started as an offshoot of Space X when the aerospace manufacturer needed to construct testing trenches. That grew into a personal hobby of Musk’s, and then evolved into a serious endeavor.
Let’s wait for something more official than a tweet before putting money down on Yes, especially at -250 odds! Until Boring Company makes an announcement or Musk fleshes out the details, let’s just treat this as another eyebrow-raising tweet from the eccentric billionaire.
