    Cybertruck Photos Leaked! 📸 [Added: Video Showing Whole Truck -- Rear & Bed]

    Hopefully that whole black panel can be easily removed for installation of a snowplow (for those that need one) or in my case an aftermarket armor plated bumper in case Bambi wants to jump in front of me. We recently bought a new RAM 3500 flatbed and with all that plastic on the front I bit the...

    Cybertruck + catamaran = Cybercat™

    Just modify an existing pontoon boat to accept the CT to drive up on it and use the battery to run a jet pump type propulsion system. The advantage of the pontoon platform is the ability to mount solar panels above the CT thus shading it. The fly in the ointment in this idea is the weight of...

    Product Roadmap to be announced at the earnings call.

    Ref the article about Tesla stock dropping. Since I'm a long term investor (unless I have to sell to pay down CT payment) these periodic dips don't bother me. In fact if I had ten grand to invest I'd drop every nickel into more stock since it dropped below a thousand a share today (1/21/2022)...

    Tesla applies for a new trademark to sell its own audio equipment, like headphones and more

    Tesla should give first shot at all swag to people with established accounts or reservations. Give it two weeks and then open sales to the general public. You would have to provide your account or reservation number to order. It would be a premium and a reward to Tesla owners and prospective owners.

    Product Roadmap to be announced at the earnings call.

    Probably the same experts that have underestimated Tesla's ability to adapt and overcome consistently. I watch a couple of the drone flyover channels on YouTube. Today one of them was highlighting equipment for plastic injection molding. There is a huge storage yard of those components and they...

    Cybertruck test pilot signups?

    If they really want a worse use driver I'll send my oldest son to Austin. Ever since he started walking he could tear up an anvil with a banana.

    What will be the Cybertruck "wave"?

    When I was a truck driver (back in the day when it was still an honorable profession) if two company drivers met each other we would either holler on the CB or flash the headlights. Could we program the truck to flash the headlights if we yelled out "CYBERTRUCK" when we met another one? Me and...

    Discount for disabled veterans

    As a Veteran I appreciate any discount or freebie that is offered. I never feel entitled to anything. I signed on the dotted line, did my duty and retired. I do use VA for service connected medical issues and my VA pension was earned in service to the US. When I bought the new Ram 3500 they...

    How Silverado EV Stacks Up Vs Cybertruck, Rivian, Hummer, And Lightning

    Until any of these vehicles are ramped up to full production scale (including the CT) we are still just speculating on who leads the pack. Of all the start ups and legacy automakers Tesla will ramp up faster because they have it down to a science. My personal opinion is that at least two legacy...

    Driving in Snow

    Wheel lockup on a slick road was always a problem with Class 8 trucks equipped with engine brakes (Jake Brakes to the layman) especially if the truck had a higher compression two stroke Detroit diesel engine. I scared myself more than once until experience taught me better. When I was on a...

    Rumors of Two Cybertruck Versions (Including Smaller "Wolverine") & March Reveal Event

    I think Elon (Tesla) sticks to the KISS principle. Make as few products as possible that will appeal to the most consumers. Get production up to scale as soon as possible and keep refining production processes. Price them where the average Joe can afford one. Meet the demand you have before you...

    How many shares of Tesla do you own?

    I deny everything and demand proof. I don't have nearly as many as I would like to have. Every time there is a dip I buy as many as I can afford.

    Reuters: Tesla delays production of Cybertruck to early 2023

    The upside for me if production of mine is delayed until 2024: The new tractor will be paid for. The new diesel pig will be half paid for. I'll own more shares of Tesla. The downside: I may have to pay more for it. My little Nissan van will be worn out but I'll keep it on life support if...

    What we 100% know about the Cybertruck

    Unless Tesla prices their self out of a sale I'm going with the big gorilla on the block. Four motor Rear wheel steering Cheapest interior I can get (it will live a hard life on a farm). Max towing weight. Max battery pack. Smoke most ICE vehicles Since I had to spring for a new diesel truck to...

    Keep me excited...

    If I wanted a boring, cookie cutter truck I'd buy the Ford. And the CT will smoke it like a cheap cigar.

    Quad Motor the best off road/snow vehicle of all time

    In deep snow at some point you are going to get high centered. When you get enough snow under the vehicle the wheels will lose traction. Since the suspension is adjustable that might take a while but it will happen.
