    The concept of a vertical-takeoff-and-landing electric jet aircraft was previously mentioned by Musk, with the entrepreneur claiming that he has beenthinking about designing such a plane for about nine years.

    US-basedSouth African entrepreneur and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has apparently once again managed to stoke speculations about making an electric supersonic plane with no more than a brief, non-committal message on social media.

    “One day,” Musk tweeted in response to Twitter user FaZe Censor inquiring when he is going to “make planes faster.”

    ​This comment evoked a positive response from some people.

    Others rushed to bombard Musk with questions — sometimes serious, sometimes snarky — about his future plans.

    Earlier in November, Musk said in an interview with Recode news website that “a supersonic vertical-takeoff-and-landing electric jet would be interesting to do at some point”, adding that he’s been pondering the concept of such craft “for nine years.”
