    Different gloss of stainless on November concept vs. Peterson Museum concept

    Regarding the 2nd pic, that might not be the best comparison to what you saw at Petersen as that CT is the clay model. Can you update it with a photo of the working prototype shown in November?

    Who would love to have cold thrust rocket thrusters on the CyberTruck?

    Sure, I'm down unless it's crazy expensive. My motto is to always buy vehicles fully loaded.

    Material of bumpers and wheel well covers?

    I've been thinking about this myself. Cybertruck Truck guy stated that the front and rear bumpers act as rock guards for the undercarriage. To me this would indicate that the bumpers would be made from steel (or some kind of alloy). However, I noticed from photos at the Petersen exhibit; the...

    The Cybertruck is NOT a "Pickup Truck". So what is it?

    In-line with what Sandy said, to me the CT is a Sports-Luxury Truck.

    Cybertruck pics & videos from the Petersen Automotive Museum [Dates Extended Until July 5]

    Thanks for your perspective. Referencing the published specs, the prototype is close to that of an F-150 (SuperCrew?), so I don't understand why people are saying CT is "massive". Unless, these are not traditional truck-people such that they're not used to the size of a light-medium pick-up...

    Full Video: Cybertruck Featured on Jay Leno's Garage

    Yeah I caught that too. Might have just been a language / Elon-speak thing. The website says the whole structure is 30X stainless and it's an exoskeleton design. It stands to reason that most of the exterior will be 30X.

    Full Video: Cybertruck Featured on Jay Leno's Garage

    When Motortrend got early access to the CT prior to the reveal, they said that there is a cylinder underneath (the bed?) in which the tonneau cover rolls-up into when retracted.

    Eight Foot Bed on Cybertruck

    I have no need for an 8-foot bed, but if it were an option I would consider it.

    My design update render (size reduction & leveling)

    Yes, when loading the ATV in the back, the read-end lowered to decrease the approach angle. It was an explicitly mentioned feature. The front looked like it was still at whatever height it was set at when the back-end was lowered (per the CT reveal).

    Cybertruck vs Humvee (HMMWV)

    Thanks for your perspective. Ever since I ordered my Tri-Motor CT, I've been trying to learn everything about trucks that I can (being that I've never owned a truck before). Given your background what are your thoughts on the JLTV? As a non-expert it seems impressive and I'm surprised by how...
