    Tesla shipping Texas made Model Y AWD to end customers

    To date shipments have been limited to employees. Tesla is now shipping the new Model Y out to end customers in the Austin area. “Accelerate your delivery” This is good. Hopefully it means production is speeding up and they are happy with battery performance!

    New Cybertruck Ready/ Tow friendly Supercharger spotted

    This is easily the most tow-friendly Supercharger I’ve seen. It’s not the only one, but this one is the best. Apparently it’s in Cabazon (I assum in California). Spotted on Reddit.

    Cybertruck Doors

    Pulled this frame out of the latest Limiting Factor video (Worth a long view). Jordan was talking about how many fewer parts the Cybertruck would have versus a modern truck. Lars suggested the Cybertruck part count would be 20-30% smaller (on the earnings call), but Jordan suggests Lars was...

    2022 Shareholders Meeting announced — August 4th (Split Vote). What do you want to hear/learn?

    In almost exactly 3 months. This is when shareholders will vote on whether to expand the share count to enable a split (almost certain to pass). Tesla often combines their annual meeting with other events or announcements as well. I’d like to hear them talk about their brand new 8k Ton...

    Solving the Big Truck, Small Garage Problem

    Cybertruck broke down on the way back from Texas! J/K! Spotted on flatbed.

    They had to tow it back in! Ok… apologies for misleading y’all. It didn’t break down. This guy was in Fremont, and that’s just how it was being transported. I don’t think this one was ever in Texas. We’ve seen those funky tires before. Either they traded them out or this is the 4th...

    Giga Texas/ Integrated Circuit Diagram

    Not as exciting as truck porn, but I found the factory layout bits fascinating. What is crazy about this diagram is it makes it look fairly simple, but the actual layout is 3 dimensional with portals pushing parts up and down layers as they need to. They said they were inspired by integrated...

    Here is a summary of the tour by Joe Tegtmeyer. Crazy video That video… Looks more like a Bay Area Rave than a factory opening. Also, crazy that the livestream starts so late. Berlin the event was during daylight hours.

    CleanTechnica — Why Tesla’s Revenue Will Pass Ford’s Within 6 Months

    Really well thought out article from CleanTechnica suggesting Teslas vehicle sales revenue will surpass Ford’s within a year. Here is the real kicker The big spike on Ford’s revenue for the previous quarter is due to their Rivian investment windfall and may cause a huge downward spike as...

    Musk speaking at Giga Berlin Deliveries (doubles down on CT in 2023)

    Lots of little tidbits in here. I think around 12m in he talks about their 2022/ 2023 goals and suggests again Cybertruck is coming in 2023. His comment about “hoping they have enough cells for the semi” lends a little credence to the rumors they are actually starting production with the...
