Everyone anticipating today’s scheduled announcement of Tesla’s new product must now wait a little longer to find out what this “unexpected” product will be. The company’s CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter today to announce that Tesla’s grand reveal has been moved to Wednesday, October 19, stating that their surprise product still needed “a few more days of refinement.”

Exactly what Tesla will be announcing is still a big mystery. Some are speculating that the auto manufacturer is set to unveil the Model 3’s final design, others think that it will be introducing a new PowerWall model, and still others are guessing the announcement will involve the company’s Autopilot software.

Also in the pipeline for Tesla is a major SolarCity event scheduled for October 28 that will showcase the integration between the two companies. Tesla has already revealed that it will be working with Panasonic to produce solar panels intended for use with its Powerwall, which means Wednesday’s announcement could be home energy or battery related rather than anything dealing with the company’s cars. We’ll just have to wait a little longer to find out.
