    Elon tweeted:

    Tesla Semi unveil now Nov 16. Diverting resources to fix Model 3 bottlenecks & increase battery production for Puerto Rico & other affected areas.

    1:10 PM - 6 Oct 2017

    Glad he is taking one of his irons out of the fire.

    The reveal is delayed, doubt the Semi is delayed. :D (Well, actually, it may be. Who knows how tight the schedule was for getting things ready for the event and what resources are pulled elsewhere!)

    When asked when will regular customers get Model 3's, Elon replied, "Assume the worst. I must get back to work."

    Not totally unexpected.

    Maybe they wanted to delay so they can concentrate their effort to order iPhone X right after midnight on October 27th.

    Also ironic because the car was the reason I wasn't going to buy a new phone this year, I have a strict annual "toy" budget that now suddenly doesn't have a down payment coming out of it until 2018.
