  1. Would you convert your tri motor res for a quad?

    Depending on the cost of the upgrade, I definitely would. The top of the line Cybertruck will have the most options included. Tesla will want it to be the king of the fleet.
  2. Predicted Cybertruck Pricing

    I think the smarter approach will be adding options. That has not been the Tesla approach because they want the efficiency in manufacturIng. Have you ever tried to build a Porsche online? Some options could be 4 wheel turning, motorized bed cover, solar panels, wheels, additIonal body...
  3. 4-Wheel steering

    A tight turning radius is extremely important. I do not care how they achieve it.
  4. What features won’t be standard on the tri-motor and what do you think full spec will cost?

    I am hoping for 4 wheel steering. A tight turning radius is a great option.
  5. Trade In process?

    Tesla is just taking trade ins at wholesale; they then sell to used car dealers. It is easy fast, but it is not going to give the highest price.
  6. Cybertruck vs F-150 Lightning vs Rivian R1T - Timing, Pricing, Range, Performance Comparison

    Tesla is benefiting from a huge technology disruption. They will dominant. The culture shift for traditional auto manufacturers is tough. EV Is the Tesla culture, and they create a buzz and following. I was at a Porsche dealer this week; they had Taycans busting out the walls, but they are...
  7. Are we thinking there will be a re-shuffle of orders?

    I suspect the deposit will go up to probably a $1000 to secure your order once you configure it.
  8. Elon Musk suggests Cybertruck is not happening this year

    Tesla already has the tooling for the Y. It is an easy start up for the Y this year once Giga Texas is fired up. I suspect they are still tweaking the tooling for the Cybertruck in Fremount. That is as important as the new plant. I would rather Tesla fine tune the manufacturing and training...
  9. Is it true that Tesla cars cannot be sold in Texas now?

    Yes, it is a stupid law; My S was delivered to Houston with Calif title and transferred to Texas. Even in Texas, we have bad public policy. The law is supposed to protect the consumer, but like most big government policies, just follow the money, and you will find who it really protects.
  10. Cybertruck deliveries based on progress of Giga Texas

    I do not think the critical path will be the building. It will be the tooling to manufacture the Cyber Truck. It is a completely new approach and all of the tooling will developed, tested and adjusted. Maybe they can get a jump on the battery manufacturing.
  11. Cybertruck is the Moneyball of the Truck Market

    Great Analysis! Love laughing at the state of the past thinkers. The same problem is across the board in our country’s approach to public policy. We now have an 80 year old Speaker of the House and a 78 year old President with dementia both with almost 50 years each doing the same thinking...
  12. 4-Wheel steering

    I think a tight turning radius is extremely important. Trucks generally have a poor turning radius because of a long wheelbase. My wife hates driving my truck. I think the Cybertruck will have a lot more support if at least there is an option. I will definitely add. I just hope it is not...
  13. FSD Price Lock on Order

    I just read the agreement that I accepted with my reservation. I am reasonably sure we all approved the same agreement. It specifically says the pricing is an estimate and that final pricing will be determined when you finalize your order and options.
  14. FSD Price Lock on Order

    The terms and conditions states that prices are subject to change. Our reservations did not lock in the price of the vehicle or options.
  15. Justify the cost to own

    I used to use $1.00 per mile as cost to own and operate. Now that is probably too low because depreciation is much greater since the initial cost to purchase anything has jumped substantially. .
  16. Cybertruck depreciation concern

    Technology is the fastest depreciating asset because advancing change is so rapid.
  17. Cybertruck depreciation concern

    I think you have to buy a vehicle with options that make it unique as time goes. I have a 2013 P85+ with all the options back then. It has held its value pretty well. I just had the new center screen installed; fantastic better image. I have been debating getting a new CPU. This car is over...
  18. Tesla Cyberquad ATV pics from Battery Day 2020!

    I would hope that if you buy it at the same time as the Cybertruck, it would have a special price. I have no idea what these typical things cost. Anybody think $10,000 is about right?
  19. California Bans Sale of New Gasoline-Powered Passenger Vehicles Starting 2035

    So if you move to California do you have to sell your gas powered car? How can a State make something illegal when is legal everywhere else?
