But founder Elon Musk has teased two product reveals over the weekend. Musk claims that the first will be “unexpected by most”.

It’s expected that the Tesla/Solar City unveiling will see a solar roof with Powerwall battery and charger integrated revealed.
How do we know this? Well, Musk said so himself last month.
Aiming for Oct 28 unveil in SF Bay Area of new Tesla/SolarCity solar roof with integrated Powerwall 2.0 battery and Tesla charger.

But it’s the “unexpected” announcement that has us intrigued (we are a motoring website after all).
Other reports suggest we’ll be seeing more Model 3 details, a drastic update on its self-driving plans or a new Tesla Roadster.
Interestingly enough, Elektrek noted that Tesla has discontinued the base model 60kWh Model X, increased the base price of the Model X as a result. Perhaps making space for a cheaper model, such as a Model 3?
Well, we’ll have to wait until next Monday for all to be revealed…
