Tesla is one of the largest makers of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and solar panels and industry grade battery solutions through its megapacks. Its cars line up is named Models S,3,X,Y which are named to sound similar to the word ‘sexy’. Now, several social media posts across various platforms are claiming that Elon Musk’s Tesla is about to produce a phone which is dubbed to be called Pi Phone which is stylized as Model π Phone.
A popular YouTube channel “Tech Space” had uploaded a video on YouTube on 5th December 2022 which has more than 350,000 views which claims to show the Tesla pi phone. See here, here, here, here and here. Apart from this, many are speculating the production schedule, launch date, release date of the Tesla Model Pi phone.
What’s the truth?
We did a keyword search for the Tesla Phone, Tesla pi phone and Model π Phone. But we were not able to find any credible news outlet reporting on such a phone. Since Tesla is one of the largest companies in the world with huge media coverage about every single move of the company & its eccentric CEO being reported, such a massive reveal about the new phone going unreported by all media is virtually impossible. It is safe to say that Tesla pi phone is not slated to release any time soon.
Moreover, Clean Technica reported in September 2020 about a Tesla watch being in development, but Elon Musk responded to the tweet that it was definitely not in works, and he also added that phones and smart watches are yesterday’s technology and pointed out that Neuralinks are the future.
Definitely not. Smartwatches & phones are yesterday’s technology, Neuralinks are the future.

Elizabeth Theresa Wheeler, who is usually known as Liz Wheeler, tweeted that Tesla should build a phone if Apple & Google removed Twitter from their app stores following the controversial Twitter Blue subscription after Elon Musk bought Twitter. Elon Musk responded that he hopes that Twitter will not be removed by Apple & Google from their respective app stores and if it comes to that leaving him no choice, he will make a phone which will serve as an alternative.
I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone

However, Elon Musk tweeted that he had visited Apple’s headquarters to have a chat with Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc, and had resolved the ‘misunderstanding’ about Twitter potentially getting removed from App Store. Elon Musk clarified that Apple never considered such a move.
Good conversation. Among other things, we resolved the misunderstanding about Twitter potentially being removed from the App Store. Tim was clear that Apple never considered doing so.

Since the situation cooled down, it is merely a speculation that Tesla is making phones. But there are many stories & articles available online which claim that Tesla phones will connect to Starlink satellites & will serve as a true satellite phone & it will work with Tesla cars.
At this moment, it is all baseless rumors that Tesla is making a phone which is called a Pi Phone. Tesla CEO had hinted a couple of months ago that he would make an alternative phone to iPhones & other Android phones if Twitter is booted out of the Apple and Google app stores but that is not bound to happen any time soon.
