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

    Elon said "No handles" so the flush motorized ones on the CT in these pictures proves this is the original prototype and not the updated version. Still, great to see it out there. Now, if someone could explain to the guy who took the phone video how turning your phone horizontally allows you...

    It is effing final. Elon said so himself! "Cybertruck doesn’t need a garage"

    Bought my house specifically to have room for my F350 Platinum Crewcab with 8 foot bed. That does make sense. Hmm... I was going to put mine in the back where my wife's car HPWC is. I still may since we both back into the garage. (so our driver's side doors have the most room) I suppose I'll...

    Keyless entry

    That may work for him but cell phones are not even allowed in the building where I work. So, my phone gets to stay in the truck all day. (How will my Tesla know to lock up?... hmm)

    Keyless entry

    When I go to the base gym, I don't like to carry my keys or wallet in. Those would have to sit in a sometimes sketchy locker room. I get his issue... Also, at work, we can't have anything with USB or bluetooth, or two-way radio (some remote starters), ... the list goes on. I can carry a basic...

    Factory pick-up in lieu of delivery

    ... But not in Nebraska, for one. You have to get a VIN inspection on any vehicle purchased from out of state. And here's the kicker - Nebraska does not allow manufacturer direct sales so I had to pick up my Model Y in Kansas (hour and a half away). I wonder, in may case, if I pick up my CT...

    Cybertruck renderings and creations

    The way the firebox is basically inside a hollow truck, the fire can shine past the firebox, internal to the truck, and shine on the ground immediately to the front. My daughter said "It looks like he's flashing his hazards". I tried to capture it with a quick video.

    Yeah, me either. Tomorrow. We fixed the weird window situation for the most part.

    Cybertruck renderings and creations

    Alright. I did a thing. Here's my Cybertruck firepit. I'll post pictures of it with a fire in the bed shortly. It isn't quite done yet and no, I'm not going to make it perfect (obviously). I mean, it's a fire pit. It weighs in at a bit over 60 pounds for anyone curious about that. I'm...

    Gigafactory in Texas

    The big cast beams are for gantry cranes (those cranes that move back and forth across a structure). Most likely, they'll be used for moving casting parts around. There will be about 48 of them when they finish the "big pit" area. The big pit is most likely for an isolated base for a heavy...

    Gigafactory in Texas

    The process is almost the same as it is here in Nebraska. You buy it online just like everyone else. For us, since Tesla can't we went and picked up our Model Y in Kansas which is a 90 mile drive which was nice because we got a good checkout of the Model Y on the way back. From what I've...

    If you already ordered it, I'd be willing to bet you'd have it by Summer of 2022. Once they get building, they'll be able to pump out about 2,400 a week from a single line and shift. double that if they work two shifts. You, ordering a dual motor would probably be in the first 400,000...

    GMC Hummer EV

    You are kidding, I hope. Having driven F-350s for many years, I would LOVE to have that crab walk feature! The same mechanism that allows the crab walk allows for a MUCH tighter turning radius. Small parking lots are the bane to long trucks...

    They won't really be pressing the steel into shape... Basically just folding it. Range prediction: 620 miles /1,000 km.
