The company would go through phases and ultimately turn into SpaceX with the goal of turning humanity into a truly spacefaring civilization. SpaceX started developing rockets and released its first 2, Falcon 1 (which became the first liquid fueled private rocket to launch a satellite into Earth's orbit) and Falcon 9 and its first spacecraft, the Dragon.
