Musk previously tweeted that his team has done an amazing job developing the truck, and is worth seeing the “beast” in person.
Tesla fan club Teslarati has acquired a spy photo which showcases the side profile of the semi. Teslarati reports that the unveil event will be at the Inyokern Airport, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) north of Tesla’s Design Center.
The semi features a removable wind deflector.
