    What would you pay for the cyberquad?

    I have nowhere to use it, but had the same thoughts about it being potentially an investment if made as a limited or exclusive offering. I was also expecting a $9,999.00 price, but hoping it might be half that. Getting this will also depend on other options, how much will solar add? Four-wheel...

    Why I'm Getting The F150 Lightning

    For the OP, I am glad you are going with an electric vehicle. There will be a few other truck options available, by the time my CT reservaction is ready, but this is good for all of us. More options and competition push everyone forward. Tesla has done so well, especially for a new car company...

    What steering wheel would you like to see?

    Finally there are now Model S plaids driving, out in the wild, with a steering yoke. it seems that people are getting used to them fairly quickly and NHTSA did not block them from release.

    What steering wheel would you like to see?

    Also, how interchangeable are the steering wheels/yokes? I haven’t pulled a steering wheel off a car in many years and besides the airbags, there is also the other connections to be considered for compatibility. if they are compatible, maybe it would be fairly trivial to swap them out, so...

    What steering wheel would you like to see?

    True, I think now that there are cars starting to appear with a steering yoke, we will start to hear some real world feedback for actual driving.

    Cybertruck Hot Wheels 1:64 Die-Cast

    Hah! i just want this truck. The toy Is just a shallow gesture towards this desire that I know would make me smile, but only for a brief moment.

    Cybertruck Hot Wheels 1:64 Die-Cast

    Well, I have been camping out in front of Toys R Us since hearing about this, but early this morning, the police who woke me in my car said they were out of business! Where does one even find a Hot Wheels car? Target? Walmart? O’Reilly Auto Parts? I guess it would be better to wait for it to...

    What steering wheel would you like to see?

    I was thinking of the proportional steering being speed-dependent. As stated above, if you are going at highway speed, you don’t want to suddenly make a sharp right turn. If you are making a U-turn, you are likely going 20mph or less, depending on how much space you have. I like the idea of a...

    What steering wheel would you like to see?

    Well, seems we can go back to what was on the prototype! Apparently they have worked out some kind of proportional setup which makes this practical.

    GM to go all EV by 2035

    Yeah, that is just factual data. Take a peek at pictures of glaciers going back as far as they have been taking pictures. Ot you can look at climate data since it began to be recorded. The phenomenon is real and we are the cause, the primary cause or at the least a major contributor. The data is...

    GM to go all EV by 2035

    I jumped to the end, since this seems to have gone from an oversimplification of the GM statement to a debate about government, global warming and such. The actual statement was something like “GM is aspiring to move all light duty vehicles to ev and hybrid by 2035.” I don’t remember it exactly...

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

    Just because it doesn’t need a garage, doesn’t mean I won’t garage it. Likewise, I don’t “need” a CT, but I want one anyway. It can take the weather better than most, maybe any other vehicle. So? I still prefer to not drive a vehicle covered in bird shit. Even if that would be more macho.

    Updated CyberTruck to be shown in a month or so AFTER WE GET THE 8000 TON CASTING MACHINE RUNNING!

    So we got our m3 12/26/20 and after seeing the Munro live, my wife went right out to check our panel gaps. They are fantastic. Very even and our paint looks very nice as well.

    When parked: Is "Heeling Over" strictly software, or is hardware needed? Also: Compare vrs. Lowered?

    Probably better to heel than to lower completely. For raised trucks, I believe there is a powered step that can be installed to flip up or down. Not sure who makes them, maybe a few types? Should be easy enough to install on the CT.

    Permanent stealth mode from police radar / laser?

    The stealth vehicles seem to not have any surface that is perpendicular the the forward face. and the surfaces also seem to have a dull, non-reflective finish. That blackest black paint is way too fragile for something outdoors. It is also very expensive.

    Are you going to buy the Cyberquad ATV? [Poll]

    Well, there is no screen for a readout, no dash for a cam and if you were actually taking it off-road, cameras would get wiped out and FSD would be trying to avoid branches, bumps, dips, hills... Most of the stuff you want to go over, around and through. As for the Quad, I would love one, but...

    Who here plans on NOT babying their Cybertruck and will use it for heavy work?

    This is actually where I am as well. It will be fast enough and hopefully fun enough to drive and give me all the utility I might need. I really hope this works out and I can get this. Between now and the release a lot can change, hopefully it will just get better and better!

    Who here plans on NOT babying their Cybertruck and will use it for heavy work?

    I hope to add on to my garage to get it to fit. Then, I will park it inside and bring it out on days where the weather is perfect and I can keep nasty rain and dust off of it as much as possible. I think it will do enough “work” by getting charged and having to allow me to sit in it (on special...

    How many of u are holding or selling your tesla stock to buy a cybertruck on reservation day?

    I had purchased a handful of shares prior to the announcement of the split and figured I would sell them towards the down payment, if/when the time came for my CT. Then the split and the meteoric rise and I am debating keeping it in, longer term. It will mostly depend on our financial situation...

    How many powerwalls will fit in vault?

    Also on Mars, it will need better seals, an oxygen tank, air scrubber, maybe a larger heater... carpeting?
