    Estimated HP and torque rating of Dual Motor Cybertruck

    The HP and torque ratings of the popular Dual Motor version are EXTREMELY impressive according to a Top Speed article; “The mid-range model will be a dual-motor AWD truck. It will deliver at least 300 miles of range, it will hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and tow up to 10,000 pounds. Both, of...

    Anyone thinking of changing to a different Tesla model?

    Nope, I’m very committed to my Dual Motor choice. My only fear is that Tesla will change CT specs between now and production. Thinner 30X stainless steel, axe the Armor Glass windows, ditch the bed cover, change the design, etc.

    Cybertruck did NOT have windshield wipers & rear mirrors. What will it have INSTEAD?

    Regarding side mirrors, I bet Tesla has planar shaped side mirrors already designed and ready to go into production if federal law doesn‘t change by the time production starts.

    Cybertruck did NOT have windshield wipers & rear mirrors. What will it have INSTEAD?

    From a Tesla forum; “Also, the Cybertruck will feature lasers to zap water off the windshield instead of windshield wipers. That's why it did not have one at the reveal. At high speed, a hydrophobic coating on the glass will wick water away from the glass just like on airplanes. At low speed, a...

    Washable floor?

    I can’t see the “apocalypse ready” CT being equipped with any type of floor carpet from the factory. Maybe the designers are working on a thin black colored astroturf type of flooring (Cyberturf!) that could be easily washed out with a hose that is super durable.

    Waiting for Cybertruck

    A Tri Motor will set your bank account back nearly $70k before adding factory options, accessories or state sales tax and license fees. Adding the FSD option alone you are at $77k plus state sales tax and license. In CA you can roughly add 10% to the purchase price. That brings the “out the...

    How hot does a glass roof get?

    The larger than normal windshield will also be letting heat into the cabin. I like the reflective tint suggestion for the inside of the glass roof. Safety tests have also proven that Tesla’s glass roofs are durable, with the Model 3’s roof withstanding over 20,000 lbs of force during the...

    Why are we so crazy about the Cybertruck? Post your reason here

    I see more of the Bladerunner look than the Halo Warthog....

    Waiting for Cybertruck

    I switched by initial Single Motor to a Dual Motor recently. This will likely be close to my last new vehicle purchase and I like the AWD, longer range, etc. I’m sure it will have more content as well to justify the extra $10k price. My guess is a nicer entertainment system, different wheel and...

    Cybertruck reservations may exceed one million after Jay Leno’s TV episode

    I agree. I’m not a fan of the white dash.

    Anyone plan on polishing their Cybertruck to a mirror like finish?

    I occasionally see a polished stainless steel gasoline/diesel tanker being pulled by a semi on the road.

    Anyone plan on polishing their Cybertruck to a mirror like finish?

    I'm sure more than one person is going to do it. Someone soon will have a polished stainless steel CT towing a polished stainless steel Airstream travel trailer. That will turn some heads😁

    Cybertruck reservations may exceed one million after Jay Leno’s TV episode

    I did learn two things from the episode; -The strength of the vault cover is outstanding -Tesla scrapped the marble looking dashboard in the concept for a solid white one

    Name your top 5 reasons why you pre-ordered a Cybertruck

    15) No lead-acid battery that goes bad after 5 years All Tesla’s to date still use a 12V lead acid battery to run computers, interior electronics, etc. Tesla vehicles are totally reliant on the 12V battery to function. They were a PITA to change out on the early Model S models but Tesla...

    Cybertruck reservations may exceed one million after Jay Leno’s TV episode

    With Elon you never quite know until it’s put into production. First he said 5%, then 3% and then tweeted the concept size will not change. My guess is that the majority of buyers want their new pride and joy to fit inside a standard residential two car garage (18’ wide, 20’ deep).

    Anyone plan on polishing their Cybertruck to a mirror like finish?

    Polishing stainless steel to a mirror like finish takes some effort. A small Airstream trailer will take roughly 200 hours of labor. Anyone plan on going this route instead of a custom wrap?

    Vault and roll up cover in cold climates

    The vault rolling cover should be durable due to its commercial roll up design. The best part? Tesla makes it STANDARD EQUIPMENT on all versions of the Cybertruck. The Big 3 would have made this an expensive option, just like they do with factory spray in bed liners.

    Cybertruck reservations may exceed one million after Jay Leno’s TV episode

    The Boring tunnel drive was exactly that, boring (no pun intended).

    Cybertruck reservations may exceed one million after Jay Leno’s TV episode

    I was very disappointed as well. Jay’s questions were rather lame and I hated how the Tesla segment was scattered throughout the show. The producers should have ditched the Boring tunnel drive and let Jay spend more time exploring the nuances of the vehicle. I was really hoping to learn...

    30X stainless steel will be a challenge for insurers and body shops

    From Erie Insurance; “The first step in determining whether a car is totaled (or, in insurance terms, a total loss) is to calculate its actual cash value (ACV) at the time of the loss. The ACV is how much your vehicle is worth after factoring in depreciation. On average, vehicles depreciate...
