the company's first full system demonstration will be a short new tunnel and 'loop' to get to the dodger stadium in 4 minutes. but it also has another tunnel under hawthorn, which they plan to use as a proof-of-concept. the tunnel will cover about 2 miles, starting near the spacex headquarters in the los angeles suburb. the company is also working on plans for a tunnel near the dodger stadium, called the dugout loop, which would transport fans from nearby subways directly to the stadium.

last month, musk released and video of the boring company breaking through the other end of the tunnel. at the time, he announced that the company will launch the tunnel on December 10 and they will offer the first public test ride with the electric transport system inside the tunnel.

according to the boring company's website, the tunnel runs from the parking lot at SpaceX on Crenshaw Boulevard and 120th Street, then it turns west on 120th Street and remains underground across 120th Street for 2 miles. its top speed will be 155 mph (250 km / h).

while the launch has been delayed for a week, musk plans to make up for it by including also 'full road legal autonomous transport cars': ''boring company product launch on Dec 18 more than a tunnel opening. will include modded but fully road legal autonomous transport cars & ground to tunnel car elevators,'Musk tweeted.
