Another question. If an accident is energetic enough to bend a SS fender where will the metal actually fail? The posts? Something else? For repairs, would one cut out the failure point and weld a segment or panel in?
As this thread illustrates, the CT is an experimental vehicle. Not a consumer car. Stainless alloy 30X, supposed FSD, new battery tech. Etc. To many valid questions to even ask. We're gonna be testdrivers of future EV tech.
I wonder if Tesla will dump the ever expanding Big Ugly Screen, for dual screens - one dedicated to driver spec functions (maybe with heads up?) and the other for infotainment, navigation and background functions? Some redundancy could be built in too.
Recent Rivian vids (ads) about offroad capabilities are astonishing. Highly adjustable suspension height, 4 axle motors, 400 mile range, 3 sec - 0 to 60, huge storage, $ 61 K ish with tax rebates... Cybertruck has a true ev rival...
During last year's Autonomy day presentation, or similar, Elon clearly stated that FSD robotaxis would be Tesla leased or rented. Few individuals have deep enough pockets to retain personal liability as owners.
Please, CT drivers, lock out anyone but yourself and spouse (!Hehe) from using it...
Saw his most recent podcast with Joe Rogan. Elon is ethically challenged, but still truly a genius. He's in production purgatory. And I am not a troll, or Elon hater. I got 'is ball cap and 'is CT tee shirt to prove it!
Sounds like Elon might be going to jail. Per quote: " Tesla is restarting production today against Alameda County rules. I will be on the line with everyone else. If anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me."
