    Is factory pick-up a no-go for 2 more years?

    I was under the (possibly false) impression that Texas to Texas factory to consumer sales were illegal. So if I'm purchasing from California, would it still be illegal to pick up my order in Texas?

    8000 ton press already installed?

    Welp, at least I got some conversation going, even if I am completely wrong!

    8000 ton press already installed?

    It's really tough to know which press is which, though. We know Tesla owns quite a few of them now. But there's only one confirmed 8k ton, for now. I'm sure IDRA is not lacking business 😂

    8000 ton press already installed?

    Quite possibly. It's not a small buy lol. Though, the IDRA founder did say the press was purchased in March. That doesn't mean Tesla wasn't involved every step of the way.

    8000 ton press already installed?

    I know there has been talk about the 8000 ton high pressure die casting machine (giga press) required for CT production and whether or not it has been delivered. Based purely on the footage from the dedicated drone pilots watching giga Texas construction, there's really no conclusive way to tell...

    Inflation & preorders final purchase price.

    The reservation on their website does not state what your FSD price is, it just says that you reserved FSD. The order agreement wording states that the vehicle price may vary. While Model Y's reservations had the same verbage, they did honor the original reserved price of the vehicle for...

    Inflation & preorders final purchase price.

    Just modify your order to include the FSD again. 10k is the current going rate anyway. It would be more concerned if you reserved it for 7k and it poofed on you. The FSD price is locked in with your $100 preorder, the cost of the CT is not. At least, that's the claim. I could see a lot of...

    FSD Beta V9 or any FSD Beta & children in car

    The system isn't based on high-res cameras, it's based on AI. Neural nets must be added to and all data carefully labelled to make them work for the intended purpose. This isn't a problem with cameras or their resolution, but is simply a gap in the data--and is easily fixable if the net is built...

    FSD Beta V9 or any FSD Beta & children in car

    Well, beta drivers are required to be ready to make decisions at ANY time, just like with regular driving. So this is true no matter FSD beta or manual driving. I'm unsure there's really a difference. They're required to be attentive and ready to take over at all times, so I guess you could add...

    3mm thick 30X stainless steel body panels / exoskeleton

    Wait, isn't that exactly what the 8000 ton press is for?

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

    What about a built-in HAM radio? I would pay for that.

    CT Aero-perfect insert camper

    Ugh! I know! I love my Winnebago, but definitely not the most aerodynamic. Great price for the features though. I think any trailer being towed by 200kWh of battery capacity is going to be massively augmented though, so keep that in mind. I mean... think about it with low-ball estimates based on...

    CT Aero-perfect insert camper

    Oh, there are going to be ALL sorts of purchasable shells, mods, and add-ons for the CT once it's released and industrious folks can get their tape measures all over it. I would stick with a trailer to use the vault solar, personally. When I go camping, I like to hang out at my destination for...

    Factory pick-up in lieu of delivery [WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    I would love this! If factory pickup is a thing, I would really like to coordinate with folks here to do a pickup as club members! What would everyone think of having a sort of "pickup calendar" on the club website? Members could submit their personal pickup date, time, location, and organize a...

    BHP Nickel mining contract signed!

    https://electrek.co/2021/07/22/tesla-signs-deal-bhp-worlds-largest-nickel-miner-to-secure-resource-battery-production/ Just wanted to make all aware of this. This is absolutely key in 4680 production and, thereby, Cybertruck production ramp up. While Elon did say that the 4680 does affect...

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

    Likely rumor of this based on UI patents! For SURE will have this. Every Tesla has had this so far. Confirmed! Don't feel like getting source, lol. I'd put $1000 on a bet that it'll be controllable from the app at a minimum. OMG YES PLEASE. I THINK THIS IS MY #1 WISH, THANK YOU. Confirmed...

    Every other Tesla model has this, so I think this is almost guaranteed!

    Rumor: Cybertruck (Not Model Y) Will Kick Off Production at Gigafactory Texas & Use Structural Battery Pack w/ 4680 Battery Cells

    In all seriousness, I think Tesla has learned it's lesson on schedule prediction with m3. A lesson that Rivian may (or not, I don't know) be going through now. The year anniversary of giga Texas ground breaking is coming up. Everyone said it was impossible to complete it in a year, and alas...
