    Cybertruck timeline schedule prediction -- Agree or Disagree?

    My reservation number is in the mid 400K range. I don't foresee getting mine until 2024 or 25. More time to save up for the down payment on that sticker shock final price.o_O

    Ford has officially raised their Lightning pricing

    I'm no MENSA member but I can do basic math. Ford could be selling their vehicles for 100K and will still lose money until production is fully ramped up (at plants that haven't been built) and there is enough demand to keep them rolling off the line. As they are ramping up EV's they will be...

    Will Tesla Insurance cover Cybertruck in all states?

    I hope USAA will continue to give me the best rate. We bundle auto and home and no one has ever beat their price. I'm getting to the age where they start raising your rates like you are a teenager. I guess we will see.

    Unless a new class of buyer joins, there will not be many takers at $85k+ for a pickup

    Who will be buying $85,000 Cybertrucks? Baby Boomers with a lot of disposable income (me). Tradesmen and fleets who are getting killed by fuel, repair and maintenance. People who want something completely different. We bought a 2022 RAM 3500 Tradesman last year. Bottom line truck (few bells...

    Munro Live interview - Ford CEO Jim Farley, Chief Engineer Linda Zhang, and Chief EV Officer Doug Field

    We are pretty much on the same sheet of music on this one. Sandy has a long history with Ford and he is nothing if not diplomatic. He did not spare them when he evaluated the cooling system on the Mach E. If they have any brains they are addressing those issues. I think Sandy realizes that of...

    Humm along with me

    I drove HUMVEE's in the Army. I thought they sucked and my opinion has not changed. They were designed by a crew of idiots after conferring with a focus group of morons. None of the above every had any experience designing military vehicles. They were slow, big, heavy, underpowered, and when the...

    Cybertruck to 'Kick Butt' at Baja ?

    "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday." Old NASCAR slogan.

    Autopilot is a 6k upgrade

    Didn't I read somewhere that FSD could become a monthly subscription? I do very little big city driving or long distance driving. It would be nice if I could just order it for whatever time I need it and have it show up on my CC statement at the end of the month. Since there is prob going to be...

    When to expect delivery when i'm 270,000 place in line.

    I'm in the 400,000 range and figure mine might be built in late 2024 or early 2025. Since they will all have four wheel steering (no savings ordering it without) and I'll upgrade to a quad motor which will prob increase the price even more, the longer I wait the bigger my down payment will be...

    No Resale on the Lightning

    You can't gold plate a turd. Monroe and Associates did a teardown of a Mach-E and Sandy Monroe said the cooling system was a nightmare of pumps, valves and hoses. It looked like an octopus. The Nissan dealer where I bought my van and have it serviced has a Mach-E and several used Teslas on...

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.” ― Albert Einstein “The release of atomic power has changed everything except our way of thinking ... the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have...

    Cybertruck width oh my!

    I was a military vehicle collector for many years. I could park a M35A2 (2 1/2 ton "deuce and a half) in any normal parking place and be between the lines. I also drove a HUMVEE in Korea for two years. Most Americans are just lousy drivers with crappy depth perception. They are not driving...

    Lightship Energy - Tesla alums launch startup to develop RV travel trailer with electric powertrain

    If I'm reading this right they want to have a trailer with a battery pack and a drive train. This is NOT going the be cheap and you would be competing for motors and batteries needed for existing demand for the CT at least for the next few years. The trailer would have to have at least two...

    Road use! (Animated gif)

    I rode the buses and trains when I was stationed in Germany back in the 70's. Fast, on time and cheap. I rode the train more in Germany than I did in the US. As soon as I got back to the US it was back to my 70 Torino Cobra and the freedom of the road. I've always been a train guy and the 40's...

    Spare tire for Cybertruck?

    I like that design sold by JEGS but that price is obscene. Since the CT will come with a Reese hitch that is prob the most practical design but any decent welder could make you that for half that money. Using a locking pin on the receiver and a lock through one of the lug studs would prob stop...
