  1. Does Tesla even need to create a new model vehicle to release a $25,000 car?

    In the United States 8.3% is huge inflation compared to recent history. For example, what was inflation in 2010? 1.64% Even if you peg inflation between 2-3% a year, 8.3% is 3 to 4 times that. Today 1000 workers at the San Francisco airport went on strike - for higher wages. Higher wages...
  2. Does Tesla even need to create a new model vehicle to release a $25,000 car?

    Sorry, we are currently having massive inflation. Who cares if the 2nd derivative is not INCREASING. We have inflation. If you raise the volume on your radio from 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 all the way to 8, and stop increasing the volume, you are still at 8 - and it is constantly loud. In 2019...
  3. Does Tesla even need to create a new model vehicle to release a $25,000 car?

    At the moment, according to data released in mid-September by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, grocery prices jumped 13.5%. While the ANNUALIZED inflation is running at about 8%. Now, our favorite administration has tried to spin that if inflation in July was 8%, and inflation in August was...
  4. Does Tesla even need to create a new model vehicle to release a $25,000 car?

    Fantasy. Inflation is going to continue to drive prices up. And Tesla is not able to produce the Cybertruck, Roadster or Semi yet, let alone begin design on a less expensive model 3. I think they stay the course for now. They have to bring out the Cybertruck, and that will take their excess...
  5. Shipping early 2023? Bring It!

    The Cybertruck is not coming early 2023 to the masses. They have not worked out all the bugs for producing 4680s at a high volume. Every single Cybertruck needs batteries. They can't build Cybertrucks and stick batteries in later. So where is Tesla with 4680 production? Can they ramp 4680s...
  6. Dual Motor CT will be $75K. Change my mind.

    Higher? I don't see it being lower. Inflation is still sky high every month.
  7. Dual Motor CT will be $75K. Change my mind.

    The Dual Motor for $73,000 to $75,000 seems to be good estimate. The REAL question is....will Tesla build just Quad motors at the beginning of production, like they indicated. Or, will Tesla pivot and only produce DUAL motor variants at the beginning because it will require less motors, and in...
  8. MyTeslaWeekend Rumor - Dual Motor only for the first 500k units produced!

    Should be. But will they? We don't know. In fact, we don't know what the hell Tesla is doing with the Cybertruck. We don't know when first models will be delivered to customers. We no longer know the price. Or if if will have 4 motors, or 2. We don't know the range. We know...
  9. MyTeslaWeekend Rumor - Dual Motor only for the first 500k units produced!

    This rumor of just building Dual Motor versions for the first 500,000 Cybertrucks, seems odd. Here is why: Tesla Fan Boys would say Tesla will crank out 500,000 in the first week. However, IMO, 500,000 Cybertrucks would represent probably 2 1/2+ years of production. (CONSTRAINTS...
  10. MyTeslaWeekend Rumor - Dual Motor only for the first 500k units produced!

    Here is a question. Dual motor was spec-ed at 300 miles, not because of the motors, but because they were targeting a certain price point for the dual motor. Fewer batteries, meant a lower price. Tesla could choose to build a Dual Motor, with 400+ miles of range. Or even 500+ miles of range...
  11. Cybertruck timeline schedule prediction -- Agree or Disagree?

    September 2022: 9k ton Gigapress arrives at Giga Texas during the second half of the month. Other production equipment will be spotted arriving preceding and proceeding this. Possible. December 2022: Initial underbody castings for Cybertruck spotted. Likely towards the end of the month...
  12. Musk Expects Cybertruck Production to Begin Mid-2023 [Per Q2 Earnings Call]

    I honestly don't know why we don't see test mules now. Tesla certainly has enough 4680s to build 3 or 4 test mules. Maybe they are waiting until they get all the new presses in the factory, and up and running. So keep an eye on when Tesla first pumps out some test mules. That will...
  13. Musk Expects Cybertruck Production to Begin Mid-2023 [Per Q2 Earnings Call]

    Tesla does great. Elon is amazing. But I am skeptical about volume production by June of 2023. Simply because of the previous missed timelines. We will see. Keep an eye on the 4680 production #s. GigaTexas needs to be pumping out quite a few 4680s by at least January so they can build up a...
  14. Musk Expects Cybertruck Production to Begin Mid-2023 [Per Q2 Earnings Call]

    We all heard what Elon said. Now, can his team execute? There have been promises before about when the Cybertruck would be "locked down" engineering wise, and promises made about when production would start. I will be a bit skeptical until I see Cybertrucks being delivered to real customers...
  15. Musk Expects Cybertruck Production to Begin Mid-2023 [Per Q2 Earnings Call]

    And he never misses his promises LOL. I guess next June we will know.... FYI. People make up their own estimate of volume production. I recall at one time Elon saying it would be 150,000 a year. Other posters claim Tesla will make 350,000 Cybertrucks a year. I think we don't know. But...
