  1. Are you a CyberTruck reservation holder who made multiple reservations and why?

    So we are on the same page. The single motor CT was advertised as 15% higher than the cheapest model 3 at the time with similar drive and range configuration. So translating that to their current pricing, the cheapest model 3 is about $48k which would put the single motor CT around $55k and the...
  2. Are you a CyberTruck reservation holder who made multiple reservations and why?

    Right, a lot of thought into their pricing.
  3. Are you a CyberTruck reservation holder who made multiple reservations and why?

    It's likely that Tesla had 2 million preorders prior to removing the pricing. That's at least 4 years of production. So you really believe they will hold the prices from 2019 until around 2027. Not likely. I really believe they will either get out of honoring any prices by never offering the...
  4. CT end of life

    My guess is that the longer range CT will in fact have two layers sandwiched as a structural battery pack. or at least a partial stack. looking at that patent for the coiling bed cover and how it rolls up under the truck I don't really see how they couldn't stack them.
  5. CT end of life

    I am very skeptical about the longevity of the structural battery pack. The glues in the pack will be undergoing constant stress and strain, which I am sure has been tested, but resins are volatile and do breakdown over time so really only time will tell. But in general that lines up with your...
  6. Elon Musk Financial Times Interview (Includes some Cybertruck content)

    If Tesla cares so much about the truck market why does it seem like their last priority right now.
  7. Elon Musk Financial Times Interview (Includes some Cybertruck content)

    You are over thinking it. The statement would be true if they only made 5 trucks in 3 years. There are more orders than 5 trucks in 3 years. Or lets say they do think there are 2M orders and they can only make 100k per year. Then again the statement is true. There are more orders than they can...
  8. If Quad Motor Cybertruck is $89,900, are you still in?

    You're right and you get a future outcome, which no one can predict with 100% accuracy. Just like in this case. But with the internet we can all find "experts" telling us exactly what we want to believe, but in this case only time will tell. You seem to want to believe the price will stay low...
  9. If Quad Motor Cybertruck is $89,900, are you still in?

    I would bet that our current economic situation stacks up against some of the most turbulent in US history. I imagine that many of us will need to do some final evaluating at the time of order. I don't know about you but my 401k has been taking some 15% swings a little too frequently and it...
  10. If Quad Motor Cybertruck is $89,900, are you still in?

    Rivian has mostly been a tech start up for the last few years. Most tech start ups have a primary valuation metric based on how many people are on the payroll. So yes, they do inflate their staffing to maintain funding at an early stage.
  11. If Quad Motor Cybertruck is $89,900, are you still in?

    Many of them are as close to experts in this area as possible and they are probably pretty accurate.
  12. What's going on with Elon? $TSLA Stock will TANK tomorrow!!!

    You have to be pretty far gone to just kill off people that oppose you. That's some next level evil right there. It would seem like the world should come together and take that guy out of the powerful seat he is in.
  13. Are you a CyberTruck reservation holder who made multiple reservations and why?

    You're stretching your argument a lot here with this notion of "cuts". Around when Tesla was losing its federal tax credit there were some very minor reduction often associated with other model increase or option increases. Here is a very robust history of pricing changes. The deducts pale in...
  14. Are you a CyberTruck reservation holder who made multiple reservations and why?

    I would like to see your references on that.
  15. Are you a CyberTruck reservation holder who made multiple reservations and why?

    There is no way anyone can expect them to hold pricing for that many years out. Current crazy escalation and inflation aside. They have a couple million CT orders. It could take them 8 years to fulfill them if most are real. They aren’t holding prices for 8 years.
  16. Are you a CyberTruck reservation holder who made multiple reservations and why?

    I have an early dual order and a tri in the 300k range. I wouldn’t mess with all that resell nonsense. It’s a shame to me that society stoops so low to profit off things they hardly put any work into while taking opportunities away from others. My biggest gripe is with the commercialization...
  17. Ford to build 600k EV's/yr by end of next year and has 2nd EV truck in the works

    Healthy competition in the truck market should only help the pricing so keep bringing it ford!
  18. Elon Buys Twitter [LOCKED DUE TO POLITICS AND INSULTS]

    This will surely be the biggest mistake of Musks legacy. He does seem to lean republican in his political and business beliefs (thus the move to Texas). In my view the republicans talk a great talk in giving people more freedom with less government oversight but their actions do the opposite and...
  19. What Everyone is Missing w/ Quad Motor Cybertruck.

    One thing electricity has a big advantage over liquid gas is that its not volatile and there is a lot less risk in how it’s protected. I feel like we need to break away from the idea that we need a pedestal with a 25’ cable. I think that train of thought is limiting teslas options and it’s...
  20. Tesla launches competition to design Cyberquad ATV’s battery pack

    Really the 4680 cells don't increase energy density and are only slightly better on power transfer rates. The additional width and height of the cell shell increase the shapes moment of inertia and were likely optimized for the structural pack. Its likely that the quad will not use a structural...
