I don’t really want to tow a trailer with a canoe on it everywhere the CT can go. With 16” of ground clearance I will have a hard time finding a trailer to match. If I do find a trailer if does not mean I will have room to turn around with a trailer at my destination. The third thing requires...
I do see how Tesla may put 2 motors in the back. If the tri motor is 2 motors back and 1 motor front, then you eliminate the difference in build complexity for the rear wheel only. However then it is hard to see how a dual and tri motor differ.
I really think Tesla will build a cybercar or cybervan but only as a robotaxi. I think the CT is to break into a new market and normalize the style and then put out more of a utilitarian people hauler for their taxi fleet.

I hope infrared is also included in the AI information available. Bring in a HUD on the windshield that would make the heat visible would help the driver to act on situations that are on the fringes of what AI can currently handle and our reactions would help ML to improve.
I know some Americans who come goose hunting every year and they bring a full size freezer in the back of there truck. They plug it in at every stop and overnight they can when going home. The CT would be nice to keep it frozen the whole drive.
I am ok with FSD. I am far more likely to kill myself driving then a computer and I am a good driver (said like all humans who make mistakes while driving). I have some of the features in my current vehicle like adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. I use it all the time and driving is...
The name Tesla was chosen because Tesla invented the Alternating Current electric motor which made the cars Tesla produce possible. It is also a representation of the struggle Tesla Automotive would have to go through to prove themselves. They are the underdog just like Tesla was.
This is a hot rod styled after the CT. I think it looks great. I have seen aluminum bodied hot rods but this beats them.
