    We're Giving Away Some Cybertruck Keychains (Contest Inside)

    This will prob be the last vehicle I ever buy (assuming I survive the Chinese Virus). I'm 65, old, mean and grouchy.......what says "Git off my lawn" better than a massive, ugly pickup truck sitting in the drive.

    Robotaxis - won't they be trashed?

    One other thing to consider besides have your robotaxi trashed by drunks/idiots/mental deficients would be criminal activity. Drug dealers could use a robtaxi for deliveries or pickups. If the police busted them in the act they could seize the vehicle as evidence. Any thoughts from the faithful?

    Cybertruck already preferred over Ram 1500 in recent survey

    "Drove a Ram 2500 4x4 Quad Cab Long Bed for 20 years (153,000 miles). Lots of suspension and brake problems. And the last few years it mostly just sat in the barn, still had issues. " Dodge cannot build an automatic transmission. Our 04 3500 has gone through two torque converters (250,000 mi)...

    Neuron EV Another contender

    If they can't compete on range and price they are backing up. I don't give a rat's ass how purdy it is.......I want it to do the job. All that shiny paint starts to look rough after a few trips through the pasture looking for cows.

    Cybertruck VS Rivian

    Part of the allure of the CT is it's appearance. If I wanted another truck that looked like a truck and wanted to spend 60 plus grand I'd just buy the Boss Lady and new Ram 3500 with the diesel.

    Cybertruck vs Humvee (HMMWV)

    I drove the HUMVEE in Army (Command Slant back version) and you could not run fast enough to give me one. I retired in 2007 and started dealing in surplus military vehicles. I bought over 200 trucks, trailers and other misc vehicle related stuff andI never, ever considered owning a...

    Cybertruck as NYPD, Coast Guard, Taxi, UPS, Dominos, and More

    "Would have to deliver A LOT of pizzas to pay that truck off. " That's very true but your overhead would be a lot less. But you could "Eliminate the middleman" if you could turn the CT into a mobile pizza maker and make the pies on the spot. Every thing could slide out of the bed and the cold...

    How to tell your place in line based on Cybertruck preorder reservation number

    "I just have a question is the cybertruck when it comes out will you just be able to lease it or will you be able to buy it?" I haven't seen an option for leasing or financing through Tesla although I'm sure they're running the numbers to see how much money they can keep from a sale or lease...

    Alabama here

    As far as I can tell I'm the third person in Alabama to put a deposit on the CT. Anyone else out there?

    When I pay the hundred dollar deposit is there monthly payments till the full payment is made at del

    "You can make payments to your savings account. Then apply all that money as your down payment." And we have a winner. My little Nissan van will be paid off in a few months. That payment and some other spare cash I have each month will go into my savings account and be used as my down payment...

    Insurance and financing

    I watched a video on YouTube that was about Tesla insuring cars in California now and maybe expanding the market to the rest of the country. The way the guy explained it was that insurance in California for Teslas was very high so Tesla stepped up and started their own insurance company. He...

    Ease of vehicle entry: Cybertruck vs Model 3

    There is also the aftermarket manufacturers that might offer a step rail system that you see on other "two story trucks". That is if there are points where things like that can be attached.

    Petition Elon for Dually

    "Dually and a 5th wheel plate in the vault and CT could compete with almost anything. This should definitely be an option. " Let me preface this with some background info. For most of my adult life I was either in the military or drove a Commercial Vehicle (this overlapped when I was in the Army...

    Will we need a jack...

    It's my policy to always have a spare tire in any vehicle I own. I omitted that from the other post. I would have a spare tire, low profile jack and my Earthquake impact driver with various sockets. I generally have a bag with other tools I might need too. Prob most of this stuff will fit in the...

    Cybertruck trash talk from Jalopnik

    "And then there is the operating cost in fuel, "likely be equal or less than the previous model year, which earned 13 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway". YIKES! Can you imagine how much fuel you will have to pour into a Hellcat just driving it around town?" And if memory serves me...

    Will we need a jack...

    If I were to make a long road trip in my CT I would have a low profile floor jack and my Harbor Freight "Earthquake" impact driver with an assortment of sockets with me. I hate waiting on the side of the road for a service truck. I do the same now when I take my little van on a road trip. Better...
