  1. Poll: Are You Replacing an ICE Truck With Your Cybertruck?

    The (3 motor) CT will be my first truck since a 1998 Tacoma that was in fine shape when I sold it in 2015. It be my first EV. It will be by far my largest vehicle ever (current is a 2014 Prius). I liked the Tacoma (2WD, V6, 5speed) but the CT really excites me. I always wanted a Delorean but...
  2. The Cybertruck is NOT a "Pickup Truck". So what is it?

    The CT may or not be a pickup truck depending upon your definition. The most popular pickup in the US (for good reasons) is the Ford F-150. Tesla beats it on every metric I have seen. But to me, the CT is a Retro Geek Cyber Fantasy. I am a Retro Geek. How can I resist a faster Delorean without...
  3. Should Reservation Price Increase?

    I would gladly pay an increased reservation price for a better place on the waiting list. I would even pay full price in advance for first day (or even first month) delivery. I do not have expensive indulgences like dining out, fancy clothing, movies, Starbucks, or (before CT) expensive...
  4. Poll: Are You Replacing an ICE Truck With Your Cybertruck?

    My current vehicle is a very slow Prius hybrid. Its predecessor was a relatively quick V6 Tacoma. I have long wanted an EV. CT is the first one that screamed to me 'BUY THIS!'
  5. Anyone plan on polishing their Cybertruck to a mirror like finish?

    I have SS cookware and appliances in mirror and brushed. I find the brushed easier to maintain.
  6. Will the CyberTruck be your First Tesla and/or Electric Vehicle?

    YES. The CT will be my first electric. I have driven a Prius hybrid for several year and like it.' It is SLOW. The CT is FAST. How can I not like something both faster and more responsible?
  7. Musk Again Teases That Cybertruck Will Float

    I recently saw a video of Dr. Musk fishing from the bed of a CT. How long will the CT float? What size seas will it tolerate? Can I enhance it by adding foam or air bumpers to the sides? I love fast vehicles and fishing. Will there be a nautical option? Can I mount outrigger poles? What is the...
  8. Who would love to have cold thrust rocket thrusters on the CyberTruck?

    I WANT this. I agree with Dr. Musk: Too much is never enough. I also want the deep sea fishing option.
  9. Who would love to have cold thrust rocket thrusters on the CyberTruck?

    I just watched a video of a prototype Tesla Roadster with the SpaceX rocket thruster option. Will I be able to get these for my CT?
  10. Cybertruck badge ideas

    All the CT pictures I have seen have no badging. A suggested one for CT made in the new Austin facility: Made in Texas with American skill. I have enjoyed my very reliable Toyotas, but I want to wave the flag with my CT. FWIW, I am scared spitless by the CT. It is HUGE. My largest previous...
  11. SpaceX

    I recently saw a video of a new Tesla Roadster using ROCKETS. Will I be able to get this on my Trimotor CT? I am with Elon: Too much is never enough.
  12. Cybertruck is the best family car you can buy. Will it be your family vehicle?

    I sm a family of one. The Trimotor CT will be my sole vehicle. It does more than I need and will be the BADDEST car on the block.
  13. Should and how would I upgrade Single Motor to Dual Motor?

    The site where you placed your order makes it easy to upgrade. Should you? If you live where the driving conditions include snow and ice, the 2 and three motor options are 4WD and safer. If you frequently take trips more than 250 miles, the three motor is a must. i tell folks that is my reason...
  14. Cybertruck Gigafactory Location Will Be More Than Halfway to East Coast

    CA is business hostile TX is business friendly. Investing in CA now is very cost ineffective.
  15. Cybertruck Gigafactory Location Will Be More Than Halfway to East Coast

    Texas has far lower property and income taxes than the People's Republic of California. This is one of the reasons why the 2020 census will show people moving from CA, NY, NJ, IL to TX.
