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

    Ouch. No sales tax here in Oregon. Plus (under current incentives) it could get $5000 in rebates. But we still have that $1200 destination fee. So the final cost of my DM nonFSD could be $46,190. But that’s so far away. We may have sales tax by then.

    Factory Ladder Bed Rack For Cybertruck Spotted in Reveal Night Image

    Yeah, that's really cool. I also never noticed this render before. I wonder how much room there is in the wing compartment. That side rail gets pretty thick the closer it gets to the cabin. I used to work in insurance mitigation. I had to bring a crew out to board up houses at 2AM while the...

    3D Printed Cybertruck

    Yes, the proportions look a little wonky. Can you show a picture of the finished version? That would be fun to paint.

    Solar power panels on hood and roof

    There's a noticeably large "hump" in the vault right below the rear window, which is where the cover disappears to. If the cover isn't rolling up into that area then what do you think that "hump" is doing there?

    Solar power panels on hood and roof

    I don't know. The cover appears to use the same tech as my old garage door opener. It's operated trouble-free for decades. And I open and close it at least twice a day. While I'll probably open and close this cover way less. That is an issue to me too. I think ideally the cover would roll...

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

    Not surprisingly, it looks like reservations have slowed down to less than 1,000 a day. If the spreadsheet can be trusted between 3/20 and 3/29 there were about 7,000 new reservations. I'm really curious how many people were never very serious about it and have now taken back their $100. I...

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

    I don't know, I'm just going off what the spreadsheet says.

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

    Based on the spreadsheet I would guess that the reservation number is at around 520,000 now.

    Cybertruck Wrap Ideas?

    Maybe polished below the waistline and left raw above? This thing is going to be like a blank canvas. I want to leave mine as is, but I have a coworker that does wraps as a side business and he's itching to get his hands on my CT.

    EVs more patriotic than ever?

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/20/perspectives/saudi-arabia-oil-market/index.html Lost in all the virus news is the oil price wars going on. This is all too complex for me to understand. But if Saudi Arabia controls the oil market it seems that locally produced power is more important than ever.

    Will Covid 19 delay the Cybertruck build? [Related update: Fremont plant suspends production]

    Interesting, this article says the opposite. https://electrek.co/2020/03/19/tesla-strong-weather-several-months-shut-down-analyst/

    What options or ideas would you like to see available for CT?

    Bringing this idea over from Reddit... In place of side mirrors, do this: Heads up display projection side view displays. One above each hand on the steering wheel. They would be about where a motorcyclist has mirrors. And you could even incorporate some basic info onto those displays. Like...

    Will Covid 19 delay the Cybertruck build? [Related update: Fremont plant suspends production]

    I also work in an "essential" industry, on the utility side of things, and am exempt from sheltering in place. Tesla can easily make a case that they are also essential, since people working in essential trades need transportation, and many of them drive Teslas. The factory doesn't just make...

    Fan Made Cybertruck Trailer

    Is it me or is there an odd change in the angle behind the cab? It seems to become steeper at that point.

    NO SIDE MIRRORS

    Right. Remember that side mirror display needs to be always on. It only makes sense for these displays to be on the a-pillars.

    Cybertruck renderings and creations

    The wagon renders all look so good. I think Tesla has a golden opportunity to cash in by making a 3 row CyberSUV variant.
