I watched the presentation, but got bored with the redundant questions towards the end and left the site.
I did like what Tesla will do to make the batteries cheaper, better, and use less of a process. Since I'm number 235K-ish, I have time to wait for the new style batteries. So my CT will fly...
I would not. Because it would be dead money. I am now getting dividends on the money I will be using to buy the truck. I don't expect to get my truck until late 2023. I know the production date will be pushed out just like other vehicles had.
But there are some advantages:
1. My wife hates driving my 4Runner because of its size. I guarantee she will NEVER ask to drive my Cybertruck voluntarily.
2. Truck tires are typically beefier so running over a curb typically doesn't result in much damage.
3. parallel parking in a tight spot...
You should make sure it is a conservative investment. Buying Tesla stock is not being conservative with your truck money. Nothing against the stock, but doo doo happens. Think return of your money, not return on your money when buying stocks
I wouldn't pay cash. With interest rates low, you can take out a loan. Then Invest your money in an investment making more interest/dividend than the loans is. It's called using other people's money. Unless you are filthy rich, then as Rosanne Roseannadanna would say, never mind.
