    Sail Panels vs Plastic Vault?

    But we all know in reality that burger wrappers, half-consumed soda bottles, and balled up receipts will come tumbling out all over the street when we hit the "open" button.

    Sail Panels vs Plastic Vault?

    Same, I imagined the sail space is also perfect for off-road gear like tow straps, gloves, snatch block, clevices, winch blanket, etc. It would be pretty awesome if it stuck around.

    There is probably a little measuring unit foreshortening from left to right. I'm still saying that's 5 1/2 feet. I'm not even concerned about daydreaming the CT can be however it ends up the only real deal breakers would be a >$100K price tag or an absurd size. So whatever it is, it is and...

    Same old story on CT update

    It's already been 3 years. Musk announced the CT in 2019. The driving reasons for the CT non-release is 40%: Still not fully engineered/designed 60%: Too much money to be made from mass Model Y production in the current market situation.

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

    No worries, you provide traffic for their metrics at the very least. So it's not like you're not "providing". Me, I have a PiHole on my network, so the ads register hits for them, but I never ever see the ads. Look it up, I don't feel guilty one bit. If they have a donation page I'd chip in a...

    STOP excusing for Elon

    All I can pull from my last year of waiting in vain is this. I sincerely hope that the next time Musk mentions ANYTHING regarding a CT time scale he waits until his gut estimate is no less than 6 months. Whether it's for anticipated production or ordering, whatever. And when he says the time...

    STOP excusing for Elon

    The roadmap he gave was, "We can't get there from here. We'll try again next year."

    I don't pretend to know how he thinks but you're pretty much right. "Parts constrained" is the key. He started with the issue of "What's the most profitable use of what's available in this stressed supply chain?" The answer was the Model Y, and it probably wasn't even a close call. Legacy auto...

    Joe Rogan takes Cybertruck for a Spin!

    Yep. It's official. I'm all good now. This just wasn't going to be the year for the CT, I guess. It's like the CT got eliminated from the Company Profits Playoffs. The truck looks good. Just a few more missing parts and we'll have a winner. I can't wait til next year.

    STOP excusing for Elon

    This entire site is at various stages of grief. We're working shit out, man. I crossed into "acceptance" about an hour ago. And I. Am. O. K. Really. I'm OK.

    STOP excusing for Elon

    The decision was a business decision. Promises schmom-mises... Too much money would be left on the table by not making Model Ys by the bunches.

    Same old story on CT update

    C'mon, Crissa. One of the first things Musk said in the opening... As far as Tesla stock.. They're going to outperform everything when they start delivering from Austin. Tesla's going to be printing money.

    Same old story on CT update

    No matter how you slice it, the CT isn't even close to being ready when he literally says "There's a lot of new technology in the Cybertruck that will take some time to work through.". Oof. That doesn't sound like they're almost done engineering the vehicle. If you asked a plumber working on...

    Same old story on CT update

    Here's a quote from Musk... I want to be positive too. But, they're not done major development. In his latest "I've been driving" tweets, he referred to the latest CT version as "the prototype", not a beta or alpha.

    What are you going to get while you wait?

    I put in a Rivian R1S order last night. I also made a Silverado reservation on release day, but I'm not playing dealership games. I don't feel like hunting for whoever isn't going to charge over MSRP. I don't feel like having a dealer asking for extra reservation cash, which technically isn't...

    McDonalds could replace everyone in the restaurant and only have a person at the front counter with a manager in the back, and no one would even notice the difference. For sure McDonald's is working on it but they don't have the engineering/programming skills to do it in a meaningful manner...

    I think that society is out of step with the world we've created. We're getting to the point where the unease we feel in talking about automation is the realization that our 1890s notion of work/personal fulfillment/societal needs is inadequate for the world we live in. We can't keep acting like...
