The original Tesla Semi event was recently pushed back and even the new date was specified by CEO Elon Musk as "tentatively scheduled", but now it's more official since "save the date" email reminders have been distributed.
Tesla Semi truck unveil set for September. Team has done an amazing job. Seriously next level.

The invite-only event is set for Thursday, October 26 at the Tesla Design Center in Hawthorne, California. The email went out to Tesla owners that won/qualified for that portion of the automaker's referral program award. The event is specifically for people that accumulated five or more Model S or X referrals, which resulted in sales.
Musk has been touting the semi truck for some time and seems enamored with the team's progress on it. According to the CEO, it's "seriously next level", a "beast", and "unreal". It will be interesting to see if the above picture really is the Tesla Semi or at least an accurate representation of the real thing. We will soon find out.
Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride tentatively scheduled for Oct 26th in Hawthorne. Worth seeing this beast in person. It's unreal.
