    Article: Will Cybertruck's brutalism end big tech minimalism design trend?

    Funny but I always thot Minimalist when looking at the CT ... far from it when gazing at the PU truck competition? The only thing that is acceptable to my spartan standard being built today is the Nissan "Z" model sports car lineup. Course I wouldn't own a piece of junk like that but do like...

    Tesla is a great company but they should be challenged from time to time. Something can be good, really good but can't it be better? Tesla had a hard time fusing radar with cameras so they dropped radar. I still think this is temporary. They know as anyone does that cameras cannot see thru...

    Let me say that I'm a Tesla fanboi and have a CT3 on order. I also know it is more dangerous to go out on a motorcycle. I also defend ignorant statements by non EV people who repeat dumb things. I too believe that you are not smart to buy any other brand, Tesla has the most advanced battery...

    As a motorcycle owner this video is about autopilot being blind to certain motorcycles as it approaches from behind. This is, to say the least most concerning. Could be anecdotal evidence but the video poster has a good point about cameras being blind to distance in some cases. I know that...

    Bored? Check out the digital dash I installed...

    I usually turn to tech for most things - hey we are on a CT site right? I see the work you did and appreciate that part but sorry, for looks the original wins IMHO.

    Cybertruck pic - in lowest air suspension mode & windows down

    Maybe brushed stainless would be the better 'simple" answer? Don't know that much about SS

    Cybertruck pic - in lowest air suspension mode & windows down

    In this shot you can easily see the difference in various panels - doors vs. the rear vault vs. front fender sheet metal. Always wondered about this? Was once a roofing contractor specializing in metal only. Of course we used galvanized metal not SS but there just has to be a slight...

    Cybertruck Press (9000 Ton IDRA Giga Press) being assembled! [Confirmed by Elon Musk] 🍿

    So for the experts on casting machines ... do they use a vacuum pump to hasten the injection process? Would need perfectly matching machined parts to pull this off.

    Cybertruck spotted at Tesla booth at Michigan Formula SAE competition

    I like the titanium hue .... or is that unobtanium?

    Cybertruck sold out until 2027

    If manufacturing issues came up on the Y model in Austin, something they have made in multiples of thousands previously. Then issues are bound to happen on a vehicle NOBODY has a clue of how to make right now. Don't hold your breathe on early or even "on-time" delivery cuz the landscape will be...

    Cybertruck sold out until 2027

    Found it, go 23:50 for the beginning estimates. 60K for 2023 and then 120-150K after that. Not the best news for those of us hoping for a million trucks soon.

    No the quote was after the Austin factory party - now I'll have to find it.

    Cybertruck sold out until 2027

    Can't remember which youtube video it was but Sandy Munro had a guess about CT production and yer not gonna like it. He wisely suggested that there will be delays with something that's never been made previously. Predicted a 60K production number the first year (2024?) and then 120K to follow...

    What Everyone is Missing w/ Quad Motor Cybertruck.

    Getting back to original post. An F-250 has more weight capacity/pulling power than the F-150. And of course it has a bigger gas tank to go with it. Who says that the quad will go farther? Same space for the battery so same battery. 4 motors will of course go faster, make that quicker. This...

    Told auto extended warranty never ending call I own a 2023 CT when asked make and model…

    No limits to the scams out there. Used to own a store with Western Union. Old guy came in needing to send $2500 to Puerto Rico to get his grandson out of jail. Scammers try to follow Fakebook looking for visitors messages. I intervened and stopped it of course. Another time someone got a...

    The Laughable & Ugly Wiper

    Back to subject: One item that hasn't been mentioned is the airflow disruption caused by a "wiper ditch" @ bottom of windshield/top of hood. Maybe they tried hard to keep drag to a minimum, explaining the wiper location?

    ? [Update: NOT Production Wiper] New Cybertruck design spied! Shortened front, no door handles, side mirrors, curved windshield glass! [Dec. 10]

    curved windshield makes sense. At the proper angle a flat plane would probably reflect an incredible amount of sunlight at some unsuspecting motorist coming the other way. Bright enuf to almost take an eye out.

    List of features that I would like to opt out

    Lose the rear steering but keep all the others including the light bar. Love the no frills lean design, minimalism is my thing, hence the name. That tailgate will be perfect for loading the Super Duke.

    📸 Cybertruck spotted with windshield wipers, side mirrors, wheel aero covers removed, staggered wheels/tires!

    Have you looked at the new offerings from the legacy makers of late? They all have the air dynamics of a brick.
