    FSD use at the factory?

    Every time I watch a vid of the Austin GF I'm amazed at the scale of logistics that must be required to just move those cars off the line and get them onto carriers for delivery. It has to be a huge labor cost,. Which got me to thinking.... why not use the FSD to have the cars drive themselves...

    Can't Tesla fund their own loans? (high interest, demand impact, etc)

    Was thinking (I know that's dangerous). If the higher interest rates are going to affect demand, doesn't Tesla have plenty of cash on hand to just finance loans at a lower rate? Rather than pairing with a bank (which is what they do now I think?). Are they regulated into having to stick to the...

    Cybertruck logo wall plaque... first cut

    So after seeing the new CT logo in the prototype charge port, I decided to see if I could come up with a design for a wall emblem similar to what I did for the regular Tesla logo. (You can see it on the wall in the picture below.) Plans are to CNC this from MDF and then just paint it. I...

    CT footage from service center

    Spending the day "WFL" (Working from Lobby!) of the Santa Barbara Service Center ( :(). The continuous video loop on the TV has about 1 minute of CT footage, some of which I've never seen before. Some of it probably from the Cyber Rodeo. Enjoy. ETA: Apologies for the background conversation...

    Tesla should make a SS wall connector cover!

    There I said it. You can get them to match all the other Tesla colors, so would be cool to have one that matched the CT! Maybe I'll just get some spray paint.....

    Clarification on 4680 ramp up problems.....

    Just want to clarify if anyone has followed this more closely (can be fun trying to aggregate all the rumors). Is the problem with ramping up production on the 4680 solely a Tesla problem? Or is Panasonic having the same issues? Seems they keep inferring that they will just get more batteries...

    Austin Model Y ("Longhorn" edition?) spotted in California, Central Coast area

    took my nephew to see the elephant seals along Highway 1 today (just north of San Simeon/Hearst Castle) and look what we found in the parking lot! (VIN confirmed) Would have just assumed it was a Fremont Y, but the horns gave it away.... :cool:

    That wasn't Elon Musk......

    Sorry, that thread title is a bit of click bait. But I've seen it reported, and not seen it corrected. People keep saying that the drone show drew a picture of Elon (among other things). And havn't seen it corrected. But I'm pretty sure that was actually a portrait of Nicola Tesla. Change my...

    Whining about Austin celebration

    The only response I can think of is "Cry me a f***in river, Karen!" "I urge you to consider rejecting this permit and forcing Tesla to delay their celebration until they start treating the community of Eastern Travis County as more than a workforce for Elon Musk, but rather as neighbors and...

    How to interpret this "cold call" email from Tesla?

    So I got this both as a text message and an email today: ================= "Happy Sunday! This is XXXX from Tesla. You took delivery of a model 3 a few years back, I hope you're loving your car! would you be interested in getting a trade-in estimate to see the value of your car, a test drive...

    Almost as durable as Stainless Steel?

    Found this at the local gas station today. Look closer.... entire truck sprayed in bed liner material. If I don't get the CT, I'm tempted to get a model Y and do the same...... tough as hell! :) (I had sprayed the fenders only of my '86 Toy) Entire cost: $280 (guessing he did it himself)

    Making do without the Cybertruck

    So, it's been 2+ years since I sold off my 20 year old Dodge truck (and another ICE car) to help pay for the Model 3 under the premise of "I don't really use the truck that much anyway". Of course, it's been a bit painful, as it's those little situations (as opposed to hauling massive amounts of...

    Let's talk L-track accessories!

    So, it's funny that one of the things I'm most excited about on the CT is the L-track. Instead of speculating on rumors about things, let's talk something concrete while we wait for the CT. What L-track parts will you order? What will be good to have? What is your favorite online site for...

    What SOC to keep tri-motor CT at?

    OK, so for just around town and Home Depot trips, I certainly don't need the full "500" miles of range (no, don't start with me on choice of CT motors). I'm perfectly good with the SR+ charging to 80% twice a week most of the time. So for the CT, Should I just let it run between 20 and 80%...

    Sometimes a Cybertruck is JUST a Cybertruck....

    Last night I dreamed of Cybertruck. Or should I say I dreamed of a Cybertruck sighting. I was driving along northbound on 101 just past Buelton (don't know why I would even dream of that specific location except that it's the way back from our closest service center). I glanced in the rear view...

    Cybertruck As A Service?

    CAAS!!!????? If they're getting FSD to work, anybody think it would be doable to have the CT available for those robotaxi trips that involve a trip to Home Depot or Lowes (or maybe just East Asheville Hardware if you're David Wilcox) ?? I convinced myself I could just rent a U-Haul for those...
