  1. Price threat...possibly. Stainless steel price

    @Frankenblob I get where you're coming from. The tri-motor price is already out of my range and I'm figuring out how to make it work. No others have the range. I have a model 3 and know what I'm getting with FSD whereas the offerings from the others seem like a step back. I'm not sure what...
  2. What is the likelihood that the first CT deliveries will be the Tri-CT with FSD option enabled?

    I would say that tri-motor will come first but for a different reason. I would imagine, a.k.a. pulling this idea out my butt, they would want to verify every component of the assembly line first by making the vehicle that uses all the stations. Make a bunch of those for customers and see if...
  3. EV Trucks Compared: Cybertruck has head start on F-150 EV and GMC Hummer EV

    Not exactly sure what they are referring to but here's a thread talking about paint and wraps https://www.cybertruckownersclub.com/forum/threads/conducting-testing-on-300-series-stainless-steel-temperature-and-bullet-test.1315
  4. ICE Journalists Won't Give Up

    Big sarcasm bomb incoming... Wait....journalists, who get zero access to Tesla because it doesn't even have a communications department and who also get shit on by its CEO, are mad at Tesla? Whaaaat?? Btw, also from the same "awards" And what the hell, it's a CUV. Not only is it not rated...
  5. EV Trucks Compared: Cybertruck has head start on F-150 EV and GMC Hummer EV

    If you were referring to me, no I didn't not forget the Rivian. I ignored the Rivian. I think Rivian is doing a great job with its development, subdued marketing, attention to detail, etc. Until they mass produce a vehicle and/or have an iconic vehicle that they are transforming, they aren't...
  6. EV Trucks Compared: Cybertruck has head start on F-150 EV and GMC Hummer EV

    I can imagine GM and Ford engineers thinking, "Why exactly are we doing this?". There are many reasons that current ICE trucks are superior, the most obvious is that they exist. I'm very curious to see if Ford can produce an equally capable EV F-150 **independent** of price. The Hummer on the...
  7. CyberTruck TriMotor = Hardcore smack down on Diesel Trucks

    Large capacity as in surface area or large capacity as in production power? I'm sure someone with more experience could bang out the correct power production numbers faster and more correctly. In the meantime, I'm under the impression that charging from solar panels to car would 7 to 10kW/day...
  8. First look at Tesla’s new structural battery pack that will power future vehicles

    I don't see it that way. And by that, I'm being nice and really mean everything in that above-mentioned as it relates to a CT. For a S3XY unibody design this is new, cool stuff. For the CT, this is - and I could be wrong - never gonna happen. The forces on a S3XY unibody are fine for...
  9. Diess out as VW CEO. What now for VW & EVs?

    I don't read it that way. The executive supervisory board i.e. the ones that he needs confidence from said yes to him. The non-executive board in charge of his contract said no the extension that he wanted early. In other words, the labor unions know the switch to EV is VW's future, but...
  10. Updated CyberTruck to be shown in a month or so says Musk!

    There's another thread going on about this.
  11. EV Tax Incentive [closed due to political discussions]

    You really don't hear yourself do you? Traditionally, firms go through four phases. Startup where costs are high and income low, growth where costs and income are high, and then they leave California. See... You have to be a successful company to leave California. It's not a pity, it's an...
  12. EV Tax Incentive [closed due to political discussions]

    Yes, that was California for 17 years. The product has and will be sold outside of the state. If you want to hate on California, by all means, but show some proof. Musk was butt-hurt because a public health officer told him to close his plant. He was moving Tesla and himself to GigaTexas...
  13. EV Tax Incentive [closed due to political discussions]

    "fleeing", "extremely", "unfriendly"... uh-huh He's moving the HQ but R&D stays in Palo Alto, Fremont continues, Space X and Boring do their thing in SoCal. Billionaires don't flee, they tell the admin staff where the office address is going to be.
  14. EV Tax Incentive [closed due to political discussions]

    SALT (State and local taxes) are paid where the employee's wages are earned. Professional sports players have to pay different state taxes depending on *where they play each game and earn their wages*. So GigaTexas employees earn wages there and R&D Palo Alto and Fremont earn their wages in...
  15. Baby Name

    We had got a new dog while living in Australia and tried to rename the dog. We didn't succeed. Later, we had a daughter so we recycled the name we liked, Opal. The German vehicle Opel, also sold in Australia, is close but the name is about the stone and not the car. On a semi-related note...
  16. EV Tax Incentive [closed due to political discussions]

    Warning: Cheeky comment ahead Haven't you noticed that well-written, thoughtful, long form comments (especially ones with hyperlinks to supporting documents) are not what the audience wants??!? In response to what you said, it turns out the Supreme Court thinks otherwise. They define a...
  17. What software would you want on the cybertruck?

    Right, duh, hadn't thought about that. Guess the Rivian has one up on CT. No tank mode for me.
  18. EV Tax Incentive [closed due to political discussions]

    Surprise! It's already in motion. Section 230 sets the limitations and requirements of communications platforms. If they play within lines, they can't be sued. Trump asked corporate tool FCC commisioner Ajit Pai to change the rules via a 2020 executive order. Pai didn't do anything about...
  19. Where do you want to go?

    I've been to Mammoth Mountain a bunch of times but I've only been to the Sierras one other time. I'd like to these places: Mount Whitney Portal Store to grab a coffee. Elevation 8,374. Only 6,000 more feet to reach the summit. I might need two coffees. ;)...
  20. What software would you want on the cybertruck?

    Tank mode, Rivian is doing it so I wouldn't be surprised if Tesla does it OTA which, of course, would make it double cool. "I got my tank mode today"
