    Sadly these are yet to be answered questions.

    The reality true prize of cybertruck.

    Elon stated in the CT reveal event the price was without any incentives. I think he did so because Tesla lost the $7500 per vehicle Federal Tax Credit for EVs due to them selling more than 250,000 vehicles. However, in incoming President Joe Biden's tax plan they are planning to reinstate the...

    Cybertruck reliability concerns?

    I quote Elon "Making a prototype is easy, mass producing it is hard" The prototype has a bunch of fit issues and things the did not line up. I hope these are not worse when the production version rolls out.

    Cybertruck Tire Size Options What Do You Choose?

    Nothing, but as soon as you go off-road (or rub a curb) they will be destroyed fairly quickly. Some good

    Cybertruck reliability concerns?

    If the model S is any indicator. You can google tesla cost over 200,000 miles (there are several articles by multiple tesla people) There are several trends in out of pocket repairs. MCU and Center screens seem to be the most replaced items (and are out of pocket expenses due to being out of...

    Wrap Your Cyber Truck

    Wonder how long before they get a cease and desist letter from Disney.....they get touchy about their intellectual property.

    Is the additional range from the single motor to the dual worth $10k?

    Actually yes we kinda do. Seen a few estimates that the current battery packs cost about $158 per kwh. They are shooting for sub $100 with the 4680. Even at 100 per kwh thats 10k for 100 kwh pack additional cost. I could live with that. many estimates say Tesla is shooting for 50-60 per kwh with...

    place in line

    Only Tesla can tell you that there is a spreadsheet that was crowdsourced that makes educated guesses of place in line, but it's just a guess. No one will know when they will get their CT and in what order. It depends on too many variables.

    Is the additional range from the single motor to the dual worth $10k?

    I think most "truck" people are not that concerned with 0-60 times and top speed. Most care about hauling, towing, and utility. (which is why you don't see a ton of those F150 Raptors out there) To me a dual motor gives you the best combination of those for the best price tag. What it's missing...

    Is the additional range from the single motor to the dual worth $10k?

    I am really hoping they offer short, mid, and long range version of all three motor combinations. I know that's wishful thinking. I have the dual motor on order for AWD, but i would REALLY love the 500+ mile range of the Tri motor. Id be happy to pay for a larger pack but not the extra cost for...

    Why no HUD? (On any Tesla?)

    I am betting since its "armor glass" it will be 3-5x more expensive than a standard windshield

    Will someone steal your charge?

    Here is an interesting thought. CT has onboard outlets, 110 and 220, so you could, in theory, jump another EV that has run it's battery down to get them to a charger BUT...... what's to stop someone from plugging into your CT in a parking lot (assuming your vault cover is open) and sucking...

    Tesla WON | CAN’T be copied or caught, and are speeding up !!!! GAME OVER

    I dunno if i agree with cannot be copied. If it's one thing China excels at its making cheap copies of things.

    Anyone else have their FSD option now say $8k?

    Where are you seeing this? I looked at my reservation and there is nothing about price. EDIT: ok i see it when you edit the reservation, but I would expect that if you make a change to the reservation you are locked into the price at the time of the change. You wont get FSD at 7k forever when...

    Cybertruck Radio

    yeah i saw that today. I mentioned in another thread that technology based vehicles like the Tesla will require updates to hardware as computer tech evolves. I was wondering who would have to shoulder the cost of that, guess now we know. Can't say I would be very happy to have to shell out 3k...

    Tesla’s subtle Supercharger ‘V4’ hints are pointing at the Cybertruck’s 350 kW charge rate

    I have kinda wondered about the CT charging. If you look at the pictures of the prototype the charging port door is rather large, much larger than any other Tesla vehicle. Considering how small a supercharger plug is, I am wondering why such a big door? I have come to 2 possible things with...

    Offer to buy Tri-Motor After Delivery

    You do realize the "place in line" based on the spreadsheet is pure speculation....there will be tons of factors that go into when you will actually get a vehicle that no one (maybe not even Tesla yet) knows.
