So, there are 2,000,000 people on the waitlist for the CT. And trucks are the largest selling vehicles in the US, so demand shows no signs of waning over the next decade. If you don't believe that 20 (or 40 or 80) years from now, a Foundation Edition Cybertruck will be worth the investment...
I agree with you. I read many of the spin pieces out there, and just shake my darned head. I expect lots of them are clickbait, and there will be more soon telling me how uncool I will look when I drive around in my bulletproof supertruck. Consider me whelmed.
I'd love to go back to the factory to pick mine up when it's available. And I have friends who've volunteered to take the trip with me... I do wonder whether I should keep it though, or sell it when I take delivery. I've heard from several people who would buy it from me.
My reservation is ~3300, and that reservation is now locked for editing by Tesla. I have a second reservation at ~110,000 and that one can still be edited. And as for the people who bail on their reservations, within the first 50,000, I would bet that more than 35,000 follow through.
