  1. Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    They were talking about the Megacharger there, not the 1,000 volt drivetrain. They talked about that at the very beginning.
  2. Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    They did say (I mean, Elon said) the CT will be able to use the Megacharger. What they only hinted at was the 1,000 volt drivetrain.
  3. Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Your notion of confirmation and mine are very different. He said “and other vehicles”, and the most likely vehicle is the Cybertruck, but definitely not a confirmation.
  4. Tesla Semi Launch Event Dec 1

    My takeaways from the event: The Semi has a 1000-volt drivetrain (other vehicles coming) They said something about the heat pump that I didn't catch Their Megacharger will be used for CT also (1000-volt drivetrain above?)
  5. Franz Interview - Talks About Cybertruck Design, Petersen Exhibit, and Production Model Hints!

    I always did my own drawings but I get your point. If they are hiring technical illustrators (not in my group as far as I know) then sure. We did have UX designers that I am sure had artistic background, but your statement was that they were hiring artists. You say that your wife was hired as a...
  6. Cybertruck Production Per Year for X IDRA 9T at Giga Texas

    I am not saying it is wrong; I am saying that we don't know. There is a difference. And what is a spreadsheep anyway :)
  7. Franz Interview - Talks About Cybertruck Design, Petersen Exhibit, and Production Model Hints!

    You never know with that guy. He decides on a whim to do crazy things. And he doesn't care if it makes financial sense. If he wants to do it, he does it. And he wouldn't care if anyone bought it either. That is what he said about the Cybertruck. He is making it for himself. I hate to admit it...
  8. Franz Interview - Talks About Cybertruck Design, Petersen Exhibit, and Production Model Hints!

    So, @Crissa, when you worked at NASA how many artists did you meet? I worked at Langley and Ames over 7 years and I cannot say that I ever met someone trained as an artist that was hired for that skillset. I am not trying to say that I think it is unimportant; only that I haven't, in my...
  9. Franz Interview - Talks About Cybertruck Design, Petersen Exhibit, and Production Model Hints!

    I am super glad that we went to the Petersen and saw the CT in person. It isn't nearly as intimidating as people always make it out to be. To me the biggest issue is the width and not the length or height but I cannot put 'any' car in my garage (too many tools!) so that isn't an issue for me.
  10. Franz Interview - Talks About Cybertruck Design, Petersen Exhibit, and Production Model Hints!

    You are joking, right? There is no such thing as Engineering 101. Engineering courses start in the 3rd year of college, after all the math, physics, chemistry, and other lower-division requirements are met. Then the survey courses are divided into materials, dynamics, electrical, etc. and move...
  11. Cybertruck Production Per Year for X IDRA 9T at Giga Texas

    We have NO IDEA what the demand is. Why do people keep saying that we do when the only one that knows is Tesla and they haven't said squat for 2 years about the reservation list. We know that we cannot believe the spread sheet because it uses the Tesla order number and Tesla order numbers...
  12. Tesla Semi Launch Event Dec 1

    I think that I prefer Tesla's livestream (livestream.tesla.com) to some YouTuber talking head but, yes, he is livestreaming it.
  13. Cybertruck Production Per Year for X IDRA 9T at Giga Texas

    Demand is what exists beyond the early reservations. No one will know what that is until they open up the site for orders again. They seemed to believe they could satisfy the demand at 250K per year way back when, and they already knew, then, what the reservation list looked like. I am on...
  14. Cybertruck Production Per Year for X IDRA 9T at Giga Texas

    We know that there is only room in the die-casting area of the factory for 2 9K-ton gigapresses so you are probably getting ahead of yourself with that prediction. Take a look at how many Model Ys they are delivering at present (i.e., about 2,000/week, with 4 operating 6K-ton gigapresses). It is...
  15. Cybertruck Production Per Year for X IDRA 9T at Giga Texas

    @Crissa, all that tells us is that: (1) the number they have is smaller than social media and that stupid spread sheet would suggest, (2) they have no issue fulfilling orders over several years, or (3) they will, as you suggest, expand production. Elon mentioned that their first year they would...

  17. Cybertruck Production Per Year for X IDRA 9T at Giga Texas

    Do you think they now expect to make more than the 250K/year that they announced last year?
  18. Tesla Semi Launch Event Dec 1

    I am subscribed to their YouTube channel and I see nothing there. In the past they have shown upcoming events there but not this time :-(
  19. Franz Interview - Talks About Cybertruck Design, Petersen Exhibit, and Production Model Hints!

    I liked it. No 'new' information but listening to Franz is a treat, as you say.
  20. Tesla Semi Launch Event Dec 1

    But even the table you just provided only has California about 10%-15% higher than other states. So what is the hourly rate where you live? Don't give me someone else's yearly salary numbers as I have looked them up before (just like the advertisements that tell me how much I can expect to pay...
