Photos on the company website show the Hawthorne tunnel, which appears identical to any other underground train system in the world.

The company has also touted plans to have its systems run high-speed travel between cities.

SpaceX, Tesla and Boring Company founder and CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter Sunday to announce the the Boring Company's first tunnel, which runs beneath Hawthorne, will be ready to open on December 10.

United States high-tech entrepreneur Elon Musk took to Twitter on Sunday to announce the opening of the first tunnel of his high-speed underground transportation system. The Hawthorne-based test tunnel begins at a SpaceX parking lot and continues underground for up to two miles, the Boring Company said.

While the trial tunnel injects a dose of realism to his vision of a hyperfast underground system, key questions remain.

He added the shuttles themselves will have a top speed of 155 miles per hour inside the tunnel, surpassing the results of an earlier electric sled test which reached 125 miles per hour.

The Boring Company initially started off as a joke on Twitter while Musk was stuck in a traffic jam in Los Angeles.

"Dec 10 in real time or Elon time?" one person tweeted jokingly with a winking emoticon.

In addition to the testing tunnel and the East Coast route, the Boring Company lists an underground tunnel project in Chicago.

"Twitter thought I got hacked & locked my account haha", Musk tweeted.
