  1. Who Else is Hoping for a Redesign for Wife's Acceptance?

    Open up your OP on a Cybertruck forum by telling people who don't agree with you that they should "go bark up another tree," then insulting them as "loyal fanboys," belittling those who don't agree with you, and now huffing that this site is for the "ultra purists".... you really have a way with...
  2. Tesla is like In-N-Out

    One of the unexpected benefits of moving from San Francisco to Austin was that the In-n-Outs aren't very popular and there's almost no lines.
  3. CT Versus Cybervan

    I think Rivian is the choice for vans, at least for the near future. They are making a crap ton of them for Amazon. Those things would make great campers if you could buy a run-out from Amazon after a couple hundred thousand miles. If you listened to the whole JRE interview, Elon did mention...
  4. Ford CEO Calls For More U.S. EV Battery Gigafactories

    It must be a really sucky feeling to be a CEO and not to have your company's supply chain destiny in your own hands.. you are left publicly asking two battery companies to come to a settlement, and whining about not enough manufacturing supply. Imagine if you could just invest in your supply...
  5. Maybe Single motor is all you need?

    CyberTruck for $40k is just an amazing deal. However, consider the functionality of a truck, where AWD is really something you want if you ever use it as a "truck". Plus, $40k will probably be elusive just like the $35k M3. Also, range is an issue. I have a 2017 MS75 (RWD) and it's a great car...
  6. If a full size AND mid size Cybertruck were available, what size would you order?

    Full size. Because 'Murica and no need to justify it. I really want an electric rectangle (Suburban/Tahoe), but for now I'll settle for a triangle.
  7. Can Tesla Cybertruck Actually Stop Bullets? Technical Analysis by a Firearms Instructor [** NO POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS **]

    I considered it irresponsible of Tesla to promote the doors being "bulletproof" on release day. And I fully expect more than one idiot to see a CT and shoot at it. And I won't be surprised if Tesla gets sued over that. The doors may repel weaker pistol rounds, but any decent sized rifle round...
  8. Who's planning on a Cybertruck factory pickup / delivery

    I'm in downtown Austin, and the factory is closer to me than the north Austin service center, so..heck yah! Living in a high-rise I can actually see the factory site off in the distance.
  9. Elon Reconfirms Production Cybertruck Will be Around 3% Smaller. Factory Delivery / Pick Up Will Be Available!

    Is anyone putting 2 + 2 together? Elon conspicuously mentioned boats on the latest JRE interview. He has, in the past, commented on how the CT could float for short periods of time. He has commented that no one understands the CT, it's better than people realize.. The product is better than...
  10. Elon Reconfirms Production Cybertruck Will be Around 3% Smaller. Factory Delivery / Pick Up Will Be Available!

    I don't believe Elon ever said the different models of the CT would have the same batteries. It's pretty clear what's going on with the batteries -- just look at the redesigned Model S to understand. The single and dual are gonna get 2170s, and then with a big jump in range, and price, and...
  11. Exoskelton fake news?

    Yes, I have driven both light and medium duty trucks, as well as a bit of heavy duty (although I don't drive a truck for a living or have expert-level experience). My expectation is that the CT will be a *completely* different vehicle than e.g. an F-150 or 1500. If your intended purpose...
  12. Exoskelton fake news?

    It's an interesting discussion about structural design, but your posts seem to imply that you believe the design choices that Tesla's vehicle engineers are making are poor, and will lead to a weak or vulnerable design. And you prefer that they do things a different way. I'm pretty sure Tesla...
  13. Is the folded exoskeleton actually easy to manufacture

    Yah, the difference is you can have a pretty significant impact to a unibody, OR body-on-frame vehicle, without doing frame damage. If someone slams into one of your doors, or the back of your car, it can be fixed without any frame issues. If someone slams into the exterior of the CT, by...
  14. Is the folded exoskeleton actually easy to manufacture

    Was Wasn't the Model S so strong it broke the crash testing machine? Hate to imagine what the CT will do..break the machine and then crash through the side of the building?
  15. Metal roof rather than glass on the Cybertruck

    I don't want a metal roof, I want a glass one. If you want a metal roof, buy a different truck. The Cybertruck doesn't come with one, either standard or as an option.
  16. If you have the cash, should you buy or lease?

    Oh, we know. At Autonomy Day, Elon specifically said they were foregoing Model 3 buyouts so that they could amass a fleet of Robotaxis. If you lease a Model 3, you're paying 60% of the total purchase price, which is the CapEx required to produce the car, and then handing it back to Tesla after a...
  17. Tesla is again confronted with risks for its Gigafactory in Grünheide

    Ah yes.. there is ZERO lingering in the passing lane. Love it!
  18. Tesla WON | CAN’T be copied or caught, and are speeding up !!!! GAME OVER

    Very cool, thanks for providing that info. Of course, my relying on information from a year and a half ago, when dealing with Tesla, made me way out of date. And I believe they mentioned they were already working on HW4 back at that point. The InFo SoW product sounds really cool and I'm sure the...
  19. Tesla is again confronted with risks for its Gigafactory in Grünheide

    A short story to paint the scene of Germany.. I was in Germany for the past two weeks and just got home to Texas on Sunday night. It's a beautiful fall season right now, with lots of colorful foliage, nippy air, and light rain like a New England autumn. I left the day before their new monthlong...
  20. Tesla WON | CAN’T be copied or caught, and are speeding up !!!! GAME OVER

    The leader of the chip design team said during autonomy day that the FSD chips are fabricated by Samsung in Austin, Texas. I would argue that "designing" and "making" your own computer chip are pretty much the same thing, in the eyes of the layman. Who actually fabs it isn't super important...
