Tesla suspends orders on website ahead of 5 pm ET announcement

The wait is almost over, even if no one knows what we’re waiting for.

Electric carmaker Tesla suspended all orders on its website and redirected users to a page teasing a mystery announcement CEO Elon Musk said is coming at 5 p.m. ET Thursday.

Users who attempt to go to any of the company’s ordering pages are redirected to a site that says: “The wait is almost over. Great things are launching at 2pm.”

Whatever Tesla will launch is still a mystery. Investors have been expecting updates on several fronts, including the arrival of Tesla’s long-promised $35,000 Model 3, a version of the sedan Tesla has been promising since it unveiled the car in 2016.
