Tesla Motors Inc. CEO Elon Musk sent out a mysterious tweet Sunday, saying he is “working on Top Secret Tesla Masterplan, part 2” and is hoping to announce the details this week.

The tweet echoes a blog post from August 2006, titled “The Secret Tesla Motors Master Plan (just between you and me),” in which Musk unveiled the cars that became the Tesla Model S four-door family car and the Tesla 3 sports sedan.

Musk recently has been under pressure from a string of bad news. His electric car company has been under investigation after a fatal car crash in May that involved its autopilot system. Last week, Tesla announced in its quarterly report that shipments to customers fell in the past three months, and the company is likely to miss its yearly delivery target.

In addition, Musk has been criticized for the company’s bid for the financially troubled firm SolarCity Corp. last month.

Tesla stock is down nearly 15 percent since late April .
