    Lordstown at San Filipe 250

    Yeah, the Endurance is supposed to have a 250-mile range. Off that vehicle, they built a race vehicle that they thought would go 60 miles (talk about range anxiety). But then they actually only got 38 miles before needing to charge. Clearly, they had no idea how this thing was actually going to...

    Lordstown at San Filipe 250

    So... There was a big promotion about Lordstown signing up for the San Filipe 250 with their Endurance EV pickup. I was hoping they would do well. Turns out my hope was misplaced. Of course Lordstown had a different take: Here is an INSIDEEVs article about it. The article was far less...

    Washington State Plans to Ban Sales of Gasoline Cars after 2030

    (y) So many new developments are happening right now that I doubt the US automobile market will even be recognizable by 2030. Sure there will be some used vehicles around. I'll probably still have my grandfather's 1950 Ford pickup in my backyard. But by then there is a serious possibility that...

    Elon Musk says Starlink internet service should be ‘fully mobile’ by the end of this year

    Recently there was an article I saw where they had a picture of a starlink antenna on starship. It was much more aerodynamic. I’m sure if they can make it work on starship then a terrestrial automobile won’t be a problem. At least not on the aerodynamics front. Size seems to be more the issue...

    📸 Cybertruck Spotted at Giga Texas Plant! + Interior Look with Yoke Steering Wheel and Performance Pedals!

    Looks like the prototype is carpeted. I could certainly see getting at least rubber mats into my CT. Can't imagine the carpet staying clean for very long. Maybe even replacing the carpet with something easier to clean and maintain.

    CT press in Texas will be a better build.

    Brave! Commiting before the final specs are out. What if the final version has some killer awesome features that are not in the prototype?

    You get one question answered

    I don’t know the real answer but the Cyberlandr guys said in their interview that Elon had confirmed two way electrical connections in the bed. The Cyberlandr is currently dependent on the CT battery for power and is being built to add charge back to the CT with its solar panels. I don’t know...

    International MXT

    So, Jalopnik has an article about finding an International MXT for sale. Based on the specs of that truck I find it an interesting comparison for the CT3. The International MXT features: Engine: International(R) 6.0L V8 Diesel Seating: Driver and Passenger Premium Leather Front Seats...

    What I will be getting to mount to my CT

    Found a similar vehicle called LyteHorse. Thread is here.

    A while back there was a thread about a vehicle called EZRaider. I just saw on Now You Know a similar vehicle called LyteHorse. They describe LyteHorse as what you would get if Tesla and Mad Max had a baby.

    Casgains Academy: Projections of Tesla becoming the worlds most valuable company

    Found this video interesting. They talk about the potential of Tesla becoming the most valuable company in the world during 2021. Basically, they state that there are 4 main catalysts for this but the projection would be that Tesla stock would need to 4x before the end of this year for that to...

    What is your biggest Cybertruck question you'd like answered by Tesla before committing to purchase?

    Are you ready to build my CT3? Really at this point I’m all in. I’ll live with whatever deficiencies I find as there are no other vehicles that even approach the base functionality of the CT. I’ll certainly be looking into the accessories market too though.

    Cybertruck wishlist - options or ideas you'd like to see available?

    Bold move! It makes me wonder though how FSD would handle this. I get the image of a teenager that suddenly had a growth spurt and ends up really clumsy because his brain hasn't figured out the full extent of his extremities yet.

    What is this in the CyberTruck bed?

    I also have similar questions. One of the things I saw in the CyberLandr interviews was that they are trying to build something that is going to need final details to wait till the CT final details are nailed down. At this point, I've seen enough of Tesla and the CT to know that it's going to be...

    What is this in the CyberTruck bed?

    As popular as the CT is already (1 million pre-orders?) I'm betting that these kinds of solutions are going to be available pretty quickly after CTs start shipping. By the time I get my CT I expect that there will be a ton of cool accessories to drool over.

    I am holding firm on my CT reservation for the UK. Who else ?

    I always enjoy finding out something new that I supposedly know because we all know it. Somehow my brain doesn't seem to be getting the group knowledge notifications all the time. I tend to have to wait for actual real-world confirmation one way or another before actually knowing these "facts"...

    What is this in the CyberTruck bed?

    I actually learned to drive on the farm with old pickups. I've also been thrown from working horses while driving cattle. Spent time driving 8 wheel drive tractors. And have experience in a giant combine for harvesting corn. But that was a LONG time ago. I am now unabashedly a tourist when it...
