The Tesla CEO made his announcement on Twitter - a common occurrence for Musk.

But I'm sure if they get that call next week in 24 Hour Fitness, they're going to be pissed that they called a foul. It's all just more heat for an already raging fire burning between the Cavs and Warriors .

And in those mysterious plans of his? Musk said it would be similar in size but "slightly bigger" to account for that mysterious feature.

Beyond issuing a delay of the Model 3 production's timeline, little has been disclosed about whether Tesla has successfully addressed the bottleneck in the all-electric sedan's production line.

In November, this year Tesla shocked the competitors by launching Tesla semi truck and Roadster 2. Well, Musk promised a "gamechanging [sic]" feature just a few tweets later. Musk had also said before that the design of the pickup truck should be unveiled with the next 24 months.

Musk has been talking about building a pick-up truck for years. "I promise that we will make a pickup truck right after Model Y", Musk tweeted, admitting that he has had the core design and engineering elements in his mind for almost five years. He's mentioned the pick-up truck plans throughout his Master Plan Part Deux as well. This crossover edition of the Model 3 could be up for grabs by 2020, simply following along with Musk's estimations.
