  1. Cybertruck Priority - Buying a used Tesla

    If need be you could get a used F-150. Will hardly depreciate while towing over twice your need.
  2. Actual Completion Day

    I'm sure the Texas factory was purpose-designed to accommodate carefully pre-planned specific operations. Does it not seem too large for the CT only?
  3. Tesla Analyst Estimates 'Staggering' 650K Cybertruck Preorders

    Not sure how official the spreadsheet is, because I'm not on it either. But I did get a next-day automated reply from Tesla confirming that they have my CT order, and I think that's what counts.
  4. Tesla Insurance - Good Plan?

    Absolutely yes -- if your policy (which you presumably have a copy of) clearly stipulates it's void if, in the insurer's opinion based on the "black box," you were driving recklessly.
  5. Tesla Insurance - Good Plan?

    If you drive a Tesla, it collects driving info anyway, so if your pattern is what they consider low risk, you might as well benefit from that. (If you're bothered by "personal" information being collected by your car, don't drive any recent one, especially a Tesla.)
  6. Cybertruck production - how many produced per day

    Too many unknown variables to make a guess. Here are a few: Whether the Texas facility be for the CT only, or for other production too. What bottlenecks (supply, workforce, court challenges, accidents, sabotage, whatever) might stop production. How slow the initial production will be, and for...
  7. Will the CyberTruck be your First Tesla and/or Electric Vehicle?

    Previous electric vehicle? For many years I had an Electrac, a garden tractor powered by six 6-v deep-discharge batteries. (The 36-volt implements included a front mower or snowblower, and a plug-in drill, chainsaw, and welder.) Quite the machine for four decades back; sorry that GE...
  8. VIDEO - Tesla Cybertruck TeraFactory Site Construction Is Well Underway

    Oh -- the VIDEO! (I thought you were talking about my performance in, you know.)
  9. Why the "CyberTruck Effect" is Already Driving Sales at Tesla and Making the 'Experts' Question Everything (Newest Video)

    On the topic of ripple effects, I can't understand why some people are still buying exotic supercars. I get why some brains took pleasure in knowing that their race-track-ready whatever could get to the next stoplight faster than anything in the next lane. But now they have to add, "Unless it's...
  10. Cybertruck Priority - Buying a used Tesla

    Based on things I've heard, plus my own guesswork, my prediction, for what it may be worth, is this. Distribution sequence will be geography-based in reservation order, with early-reserver Texans first. Then US states that are Tesla-friendly (for instance, allowing Tesla's insurance, not...
  11. VIDEO - Tesla Cybertruck TeraFactory Site Construction Is Well Underway

    Five Comments: -A pleasure to see Americans doing something right! -Every so often, this computer site that we're on should give an award for the best contribution to it. -Glad to see the dust abatement (wouldn't want any sand to get into my Cybertruck). -Wonder where the terafactory...
  12. Tesla Vehicle Questions, Answered

    Thanks for finding out, and telling us, that the order queue will be regional. Any chance you could follow this up with the showroom for more details?
  13. 30X stainless steel will be a challenge for insurers and body shops

    "On average, vehicles depreciate more than 20 percent the first year ...." Yes, but why is the average one worth one-fifth less after a year? Comparing with electric cars, forget paint-rash and wheels, which are similar on both. The other (and probably the main) reason for the steep...
  14. Stainless Steel in Hot Sun

    Wouldn't darker mean hotter?
  15. VIDEO - Tesla Cybertruck TeraFactory Site Construction Is Well Underway

    Who knows? Maybe Texans will get priority.
  16. Cybertruck wishlist - options or ideas you'd like to see available?

    If nothing else, that does give a whole new meaning to "current vehicle."
  17. VIDEO - Tesla Cybertruck TeraFactory Site Construction Is Well Underway

    I read that it's already happened at the German site, where courts have upheld some tree-huggers' suit to stop construction. (And I couldn't even see any trees in the overhead shots.) But there's nothing to worry about. First, there was a report that the Texas plant will preserve the few trees...
  18. how many Cybertrucks exist?

    I heard from somebody who heard from somebody else that there are three roadable ones.
  19. Need Opinion

    Financial advisors? If they knew (or just had a reasonably good handle on) what the market, -- no, what a market sector -- no, what just one stock is about to do, why wouldn't they invest their own money and make a killing, rather than advise you what to do in exchange for a few pennies of...
  20. Video of Gigafactory 4 Berlin construction

    Thanks -- as an architect, you'd know. Guess we'll see them soon at the Texas site.
