"The Boring Company"

He was already investigating tunnels for the tube thingie -- HyperLoop. So, now he already has bureaucratic infrastructure for tunnels; might as well do all sorts of tunnel types and uses.

And knowing Elon, he'll call his boring machine a Horta. Sorry, my inner Star Trek geek coming out.

Could be of use to Hyperloop and/or road traffic, but underground living on Mars would be useful while you wait decades for the Terraforming to take.

Either that or Elon is sick of the Tony Stark comparisons and wants to be The Underminer.
