    Cybertruck timeline schedule prediction -- Agree or Disagree?

    Ok. So, your main beef is with the term "exoskeleton"-and you're concerned that WE don't know the CT body is not a textbook "exoskeleton", and you don't want us to identify the body that way? Geez... That's what you've been on about? Here, smoke this, play some music, and go sit by the pool...

    If you're saying the purpleburrito is redundant, are you saying it's no different, or any better than the old way of making the body?

    Cybertruck timeline schedule prediction -- Agree or Disagree?

    I already ceded the term "exoskeleton". I don't care if you call it "purpleburrito". I will though. When the CT is released and we get the weight and capabilities you think it won't be lighter, and be way easier to build than the other EV trucks on the market using old style construction...

    Cybertruck timeline schedule prediction -- Agree or Disagree?

    I'm not going to argue the minutia regarding the upper structure of the CT not being a pure "exoskeleton". It derives its strength through a combination of the outer skin and significantly fewer subframe members. None of us have the engineering numbers, nor are any of us as good as the...

    I wondered the same. It would be wild if the doors used a kind of exoskeleton approach, leaving the doors hollow and comparatively lighter than regular doors. And also allowing for ample sound dampening and cubby hole goodness. My Jimmies will remain unrustled until I start to see the...

    I think this image is more indicative of what will carry the load forces. And to this, you add a handful of supplemental subframe pieces and you're done. You're looking at maybe 10-12 individual parts. Compared to the F150L with several hundred that need to each be welded together for the...

    It's one thing to be panned and it not being true, and being panned and having it be demonstrated fact. What good is word of mouth advertising if the articles spewing FUD are true? Hit-job articles stop being hit-jobs if what they say are based on tested results. I have to disagree. You have to...

    Cybertruck timeline schedule prediction -- Agree or Disagree?

    Normally it's true, but the problem with people is that they they either only read headlines, or never read the follow-up. If Tesla releases a CT version that doesn't beat every category the click-bait headlines will say "CT Not as Good as..." and people won't care if the better version "is...

    Cybertruck timeline schedule prediction -- Agree or Disagree?

    Tesla would be dumb to produce and release the lower spec version first if it doesn't top every competitor in every category, especially after being the last to the party. For the first year you want every comparison of the Rivian or F150s specs to end with the sentence "...is not as good as...

    Cybertruck timeline schedule prediction -- Agree or Disagree?

    I'm questioning a November re-unveiling. My guess is that it'll be a bandaid ripping. I don't see them unveiling and announcing real pricing then letting everyone gripe for 6-9 months until production. They'll tease the re-unveiling at the Q4 shareholders meeting, then sell to employees. Right...

    That's right around what my prediction was... https://www.cybertruckownersclub.com/forum/threads/so-lets-talk-about-size-again.5053/post-97168 Perfect, thanks.

    The price as seen through 2019 eyeglasses. And, the MY price increased how much over the past 9 months?

    Dang. Apparently, conversational AI is getting scary good according to the lab coat crew at various organizations.

    POLL: Cybertruck Pricing

    I can see Tesla honoring the FSD price for reservation holders who ordered before they removed pricing. Too much time has passed and a lot of other crap went down since the unveil almost 3 years ago. I mean, a global pandemic that caused a goods production collapse, which resulted in world-wide...

    Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    I'll break it down like this... CT comes out and your flavor costs 15%-20% more than originally stated but is every bit as badass as we thought. . . What do you buy? Yeah ... the options that will make you happy get pretty slim.

    Someone needs to get a nose to tail measurement of the CT! That's the third of the big three measurements for me (tire size, vault length, overall length)

    Tesla AC -> cool?

    Legit question that has crossed my mind as well. How does Tesla's A/C measure up under hot conditions? ♫♪♬ You're willing to sacrifice our love ♪♫♪

    Updated Predicted Cybertruck Pricing

    The only logic I see that would allow for a Plaid CT is that it is alone in its class. Tesla makes a big version and a smaller version of their vehicles so far. For sedans, you have the 3 and the S... The larger S has a plaid variant. For SUVs you have the Y and the X... The larger X has the...
