Tesla Working On 12 Person Vans For The Boring Company

June 4th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The Boring Company has reportedly been approved to build an airport loop for the Ontario International Airport. Perhaps the more interesting thing about the story, though, is that Tesla is reportedly working with The Boring Company to produce 12-person electric vans for such routes


Our Sci-Fi Future: Elon Musk Inspires A Transportation Paradigm Shift (Infographic)

February 24th, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

From horses to camels to railroads to Interstate highways, humans have always sought faster and more convenient ways to move around the planet. The next decade or so will see the sort of radical advances in transportation technology that used to take a century. Electric vehicles represent only one of several new and improved modes of transport that will be coming into widespread use


The Boring Company Completes 1st Tunnel For Las Vegas Loop Project

February 15th, 2020 | by Steve Hanley

This tunnel will connect the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, where the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is held, with the new 1.4 million square foot West Hall located in another part of its 200 acre campus. The trip by car on surface streets would normally take about 15 minutes. Elon Musk says that time will be slashed to around 1 minute using electrified vehicles that can travel at speeds of up to 155 mph underground


Boring Bricks Could Help People In More Ways Than One

December 29th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

When Elon Musk said he wanted to use bricks from The Boring Company to help build affordable housing, I thought it was genius. (For the record, our own Kurt Lowder recommended this, and a bit more, way back in April 2018.) Millions of families in America experience homelessness or have been homeless (raises hand), and those of us who have experienced it know that housing in a good area is considered a luxury for those working low-wage jobs. In fact, it's not just a luxury, it's an impossibility


Move Over, Tony Stark — Elon Musk Admits To James Bond Villain Side Project … Or Something Like That

June 12th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

He may or may not have been digging around in his pocket to find his bowtie, but even without it, Elon Musk's jacket started looking a bit more like a Tuxedo when a shareholder from the audience dropped the last question of the day. The shareholder in question asked if Tesla had any plans to make an aquatic car, and Musk started giggling as if he had been waiting for this exact question all day


A Not So Merry FUDmas — #Pravduh About #Tesla Report 16

December 24th, 2018 | by Chanan Bos

This past week, the stock market kept panicking, everyone was looking at what is going on in the White House, and the most positive major thing that happened was Elon Musk unveiling the first Boring Company tunnel. At the same time, there was a lot of negative news regarding Tesla: 10 stories related to the stock market, 10 about a few people departing Tesla, 6 about the spontaneous combustion of a Tesla Model S (whose battery was apparently shot — like, with a gun), and the rest on various other topics


Boring Company Has A Breakthrough — Literally!

November 20th, 2018 | by Steve Hanley

The Boring Company's tunnel boring machine has broken through to the middle of the residential parking garage where the first station will be located. It has also created a new company called simply The Brick Company to sell the bricks made from the compressed earth left behind by the tunnel boring machine.


Backing Elon Musk & Tesla Is About Backing Humanity

September 19th, 2018 | by Kurt Lowder

This article is for all the CleanTechnica readers that are sick of news about Tesla's stock price. It is a followup to the article "Musk Didn't Inhale, and He is a Stable Genius," which briefly summarized Elon Musk's appearance on Joe Rogan's podcast. In the previous article, I stated the long interview would be edited into shorter videos which would echo through the internet and social media for years to come
