  1. How can the Tri-Motor Cybertruck at $70k possibly be real?

    Please quote me where I say “it would be $X because the MSP+ was”. Also, wtf are you talking about insurance?
  2. How can the Tri-Motor Cybertruck at $70k possibly be real?

    What makes you think I have a problem? And what makes you think I want to pay more? If you don’t have a perspective or something of value to bring to the conversation, why post at all? As for “Elon himself said”, well Elon says a lot of things... I don’t doubt it’ll be 70k, I do doubt it’ll...
  3. How can the Tri-Motor Cybertruck at $70k possibly be real?

    Perhaps to a certain extent, but Tesla is past the part of their life where their focus is one of milking money from halo cars to cover R&D. (OK, maybe except for the Roadster) Tesla is all about volume now. There’s a reason why all you hear about is how many cars Tesla is shipping any given...
  4. How can the Tri-Motor Cybertruck at $70k possibly be real?

    yeah, that’s a good point about the quantity produced. Just seems like the overall cost to build each vehicle would be roughly the same. If the price of the CT were 100k, I could see it, but dang it’s such a massive difference in price. I’ll be thrilled if Tesla delivers what they say they’re...
  5. How can the Tri-Motor Cybertruck at $70k possibly be real?

    I just can’t wrap my head around how Tesla is going to charge “only” $70k for the tri-motor CT when the refreshed Model S Plaid+ Is going for. $145,000 to start. They both are going to share the same battery architecture (and have the same 500+ miles of range). They both have air suspension...
  6. How Far Out Did We See Production Ready Model X/Y/3?

    Anyone recall how far out from production we saw images of final design exterior/interior of other Tesla Models? I seem to recall we were seeing tons of different test mule “spy shots” of Model Y about 6-months out. From everything we’ve heard, it sounds like the CT that is out there now is...
  7. Laser tattooing / etching for Cybertruck

    I think the main issue with this would be - how do you do it safely? To etch steel, you need a Class 4 laser. There are very tight safety regulations with Class 4 lasers. Those things will blind you faster than a Red Ryder BB Gun. Even a reflected beam off a surface can ruin your life. They must...
  8. Cybertruck steel body can be superheated to different colors

    I think you mean hot colors... I’ll show myself out.
  9. Cybertruck Interior Colors and Materials

    I expect there to be two options: Rugged - This would be your utilitarian, take a hose to it work truck version. Marine grade vinyl seats, no carpet, or easily removed carpet etc. Luxury - This would be a higher quality finish out that will have at least two color options, but will not have the...
  10. Cybertruck steel body can be superheated to different colors

    Probably super cost prohibitive since you’d have to disassemble the truck. No plastic bits are going to survive that heat. I also don’t believe we’ve received word if there will be any type of protective coating over the steal or if it’ll be raw. Just the trial and error to get it right would be...
  11. You can now Pre - Order a 1:17 scale model of Cybertruck

    https://www.mattelcreations.com/ It’s a direct competitor. If it were a single one the guy is making for himself, maybe he’d get away with it. He’s making a product that he is selling that directly competes with a licensed product. Risky business.
  12. You can now Pre - Order a 1:17 scale model of Cybertruck

    I guarantee you that the licensing agreement that Mattel has (and paid for) has a clause in there where Tesla is responsible for defending their license. Otherwise, what good is the license. I would expect a cease and desist in 5...4...3...2...
  13. You can now Pre - Order a 1:17 scale model of Cybertruck

    Curious if you have a license from Tesla to do this. If not, I’d be concerned that Tesla and/or Mattel (hot wheels) may have a problem with this.
  14. Who's going to polish their truck?

    I’ve seen countless airstreams on the road that are highly polished. It’s cool for a vintage trailer. For a CT? Man, I don’t know. To each there own, just remember, that “mod” is likely permanent. When the day comes to get rid of your CT many a buyer might see what you did as ruining it.
  15. Name your top 5 reasons why you pre-ordered a Cybertruck

    1. Lifestyle vehicle - I tend to own two vehicles. One sports car and one utility vehicle for light off-road capabilities. To me, The CT is the first EV that checks one of those boxes. 2. Range - I’ve always told myself I’m holding off on getting an EV until I can go a full day’s road trip on...
  16. Predictions for the top 3 Cybertruck exterior modifications

    RE: Wrapping a car - Wrapping a car isn’t overly difficult. Wrapping a car well is very difficult. To do it correctly, you often need to remove body panels and bumpers. There’s a reason a good wrap job runs $3k+. Given the size, I wouldn’t be shocked at all to get quotes of $4k+ to wrap a...
