    Franz Interview - Talks About Cybertruck Design, Petersen Exhibit, and Production Model Hints!

    Saw this interview on Rob Maurer's Tesla Daily Youtube channel after booking a visit to the Petersen Exhibit in early Janurary. The 1 day trip is a xmas present to myself and will be my first look at the Cybertruck in person. I liked Franz's take on the revolutionary nature of the form follows...

    Tesla reliability and cost of ownership.

    I have 2 Tesla's and several years and many miles of driving experience in the Teslas. Much of what you read from conventional media exploits FUD (Fear Uncertainty Doubt). Constand recall notices and crash/fire reports are often aimed at making anything Tesla seem dangerous/risky. Tesla...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    My comments are related to the general release of FSD essentially ending the Beta program. They even removed the incident report button on the most current software release. My wife is anxious to get FSD on her Model 3 but her expectation is that the car will indeed be Full Self Driving and...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    If Tesla is embroiled in controversy and lawsuits due to a premature release of Full Self Driving (FSD) to everyone, it could be very bad for Tesla and, obviously the CyberTruck. Apparently, you don't own a Tesla but believe me, FSD is not there yet and should NOT be released to all people...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    The Exoskeleton will need to be Stainless Steel Origami to qualify as such. Our faith that they can accomplish that doesn't make it so. Tesla is know to stretch with their descriptions and FSD is another good example. FSD is NOT ready for primetime and should continue in BETA test until more...

    I may not be able to buy a Cybertruck unless something changes. Anyone else?

    With only $100 CT reservation fee just wait it out and see. With that reservation number you'd be lucky to get it in 2024. As for Elon's comments, they are never promises and should not be interpreted as such.

    Rumor: 30 Cybertrucks to be manually built in December 2022 [ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS or TWITTER TALK]

    I'm sorry but I'm an American and we reserve the right to have it our way. For me, it'll always be (as it should) the National Transportation Safety Administration. So much cleaner and to the point (although NUTSA has a certain ring of truth to it). Happy Thanksgiving everyone ... :)

    Rumor: 30 Cybertrucks to be manually built in December 2022 [ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS or TWITTER TALK]

    From consumer reports "To be certified for sale, every new model sold in the U.S. must be crash-tested internally to ensure minimum federal safety standards are met. But a publicly available rating isn’t required." So internal testing to meet federal safety standards is a requirement but the...

    Rumor: 30 Cybertrucks to be manually built in December 2022 [ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS or TWITTER TALK]

    Most of the serious questions have already been answered by the Model Y build and the current CT prototypes. Since the new Giga Press is key to the mass production of the CyberTruck, any version without that key component will NOT be equivalent. IMHO

    Musk say's "Too much on my plate" [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    https://www.thenationalnews.com/business/technology/2022/11/14/i-have-too-much-on-my-plate-says-twitter-owner-elon-musk/ Elon looks more like a Sociopath every day. It will be a real shame if he blows it all up due to a lack of impulse control.

    Rumor: 30 Cybertrucks to be manually built in December 2022 [ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS or TWITTER TALK]

    Err well maybe ... but unless you're an Tesla insider, I have to question that emphatic no. How do you think they are going to cobble together a LARGE single piece casting for the CyberTruck out of pieces that would in any way represent an equivalent bottom casting holding the battery and joined...

    Rumor: 30 Cybertrucks to be manually built in December 2022 [ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS or TWITTER TALK]

    Without the giga press up and running producing the giga castings, I see no point in this exercise. Do they need more prototypes? With actual production slated to start in less than a year? I think not. Also, crash tests without the giga casting would be invalid.

    Chevy Silverado EV WT (Work Truck) PRICING Revealed!

    Well since they will only be capable of making 20K or so of them the first year, the demand will be there if the CyberTruck is late(er).

    Musk say's "Too much on my plate" [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    Those are easily the most strident opinions I've read about Elon. While I believe there may be validity to some of your comments, I find myself in the uncomfortable position of defending him. You clearly overstate (see bold above) his "narcissism" and completely ignore his self identified...

    Musk say's "Too much on my plate" [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    With Elon's recent candid yet obvious admission, what do Tesla Cybertruck reservation holders think about this over worked genius putting too many balls in the air? To add another metaphor to the mix, he seems the victim of a self inflicted wound. As a shareholder, the owner of a Tesla Solar...

    Elon Says Possible Future Cybertuck Will Deliver Itself to New Owner

    Technically, all Teslas have FSD installed, just not activated. Since FSD activation is OTA, a temporary license could be issued then terminated upon delivery.

    Elon's comment about going back to his home planet yesterday

    I think the key man problem is overstated with Tesla. Hopefully there is a Tim Apple (;)) type with a bit more charisma in the wings. In the meantime, Mr Musk's wild ride will continue unabated with many cheering him on. I'm guessing many of his stockholder supporters are uncomfortable with the...
