    That wasn't Elon Musk......

    Sorry, that thread title is a bit of click bait. But I've seen it reported, and not seen it corrected. People keep saying that the drone show drew a picture of Elon (among other things). And havn't seen it corrected. But I'm pretty sure that was actually a portrait of Nicola Tesla. Change my...

    Whining about Austin celebration

    The only response I can think of is "Cry me a f***in river, Karen!" "I urge you to consider rejecting this permit and forcing Tesla to delay their celebration until they start treating the community of Eastern Travis County as more than a workforce for Elon Musk, but rather as neighbors and...

    How to interpret this "cold call" email from Tesla?

    So I got this both as a text message and an email today: ================= "Happy Sunday! This is XXXX from Tesla. You took delivery of a model 3 a few years back, I hope you're loving your car! would you be interested in getting a trade-in estimate to see the value of your car, a test drive...

    Almost as durable as Stainless Steel?

    Found this at the local gas station today. Look closer.... entire truck sprayed in bed liner material. If I don't get the CT, I'm tempted to get a model Y and do the same...... tough as hell! :) (I had sprayed the fenders only of my '86 Toy) Entire cost: $280 (guessing he did it himself)

    Making do without the Cybertruck

    So, it's been 2+ years since I sold off my 20 year old Dodge truck (and another ICE car) to help pay for the Model 3 under the premise of "I don't really use the truck that much anyway". Of course, it's been a bit painful, as it's those little situations (as opposed to hauling massive amounts of...

    Let's talk L-track accessories!

    So, it's funny that one of the things I'm most excited about on the CT is the L-track. Instead of speculating on rumors about things, let's talk something concrete while we wait for the CT. What L-track parts will you order? What will be good to have? What is your favorite online site for...

    What SOC to keep tri-motor CT at?

    OK, so for just around town and Home Depot trips, I certainly don't need the full "500" miles of range (no, don't start with me on choice of CT motors). I'm perfectly good with the SR+ charging to 80% twice a week most of the time. So for the CT, Should I just let it run between 20 and 80%...

    (fake) mini-Cybertruck in Super Bowl ad....

    Anybody else see that mini DIY cybertruck look alike in the Super Bowl ad? Anybody remember who it was for, I can't remember. Updated with ad / video:

    Sometimes a Cybertruck is JUST a Cybertruck....

    Last night I dreamed of Cybertruck. Or should I say I dreamed of a Cybertruck sighting. I was driving along northbound on 101 just past Buelton (don't know why I would even dream of that specific location except that it's the way back from our closest service center). I glanced in the rear view...

    Cybertruck As A Service?

    CAAS!!!????? If they're getting FSD to work, anybody think it would be doable to have the CT available for those robotaxi trips that involve a trip to Home Depot or Lowes (or maybe just East Asheville Hardware if you're David Wilcox) ?? I convinced myself I could just rent a U-Haul for those...

    Please make this a feature..... automatic vault opening on approach

    So you're shopping somewhere (groceries, Home Depot, doesn't matter). And after you check out, you're carrying a couple bags of stuff with your hands full, but it's no problem. As you get to the CT, it automatically detects your presence and and rolls up the "vault cover" for you. Why? Because...

    Air Compressor considerations

    Has anyone heard any details about the onboard air compressor? I was thinking about it while in the shop yesterday.... I'm guessing this would be pretty much a standard compressor (electric motor) with a tank, and driven off the battery. I think the key thing for longevity is that you'd need to...

    Stainless steel finish and the weather/elements

    So, been thinking about the CT "finish"... Attached is a picture of my relatively new Webber grill, in SS. It's been out in the (mild!) winter here in California (we are way down on rainfall totals this year) and I forgot to recover it a couple times for rain storms. Not sure the picture does...

    Ease of vehicle entry: Cybertruck vs Model 3

    So..... starting this as a follow up to something that @scottysize said in another thread. I just turned 57 last Sunday. The first thing I noticed when I got my Model 3, was that it's a low to get into for us old folks! I was immediately worried about getting my aging mother into and out of it...
