    Tesla Construction Security at Austin Plant Tried to Kick Me Out on a Public Road

    I will have to remember that; I am not sure if I would be so accommodating on a repeat encounter. Here is the spot I took my pics. I measured the shoulder on Google Earth to be 16 FT wide - there was no safety concern apparent where I was parked

    If you could request three factory add-ons, what would they be?

    1. Fold out solar panels incorporated into the truck (like a spacecraft) with solar DC connectors for stand alone panels 2. 4-wheel steering with HUD 3. Smart Summon mode that backs it up to a trailer and all you have to do is lower the receiver onto the ball. A matching e-boat on...

    Elon Says Terafactory Austin Plant Will Feature Internal Semi Truck Roads Inside

    Good luck ... see my post of them last week erroneously thinking they are cops and try to kick me off the wide shoulder of the public road next to one of the construction areas

    Tesla Construction Security at Austin Plant Tried to Kick Me Out on a Public Road

    Yeah it was a good 20 feet from the road, on the dirt turnout, with very light traffic --- even with heavy traffic, they couldn't try to pull that stuff, it is not their property .... he was out of line. --- Anyway, I like Zero motorcycles, I want to get one to go with my E-bike 👍

    Is 4th Quarter 2021 a realistic delivery date for the Cybertruck?

    Hmmm, well I doubt that getting laser windshield wipers perfected and approved by the DOT; a milestone break thorough approval of camera mirrors in the US; obtaining a safety crash rating; nearly revolutionizing the independent rear suspension system to be able to tow over 5,000 lbs; redesigning...

    Tesla Construction Security at Austin Plant Tried to Kick Me Out on a Public Road

    I had some business in Austin last week, so on the way home I decided to take a look at the Austin Gigafactory construction site. Harold Green Road gives an excellent viewpoint of one of the construction areas, so I parked on the side of the road and got ready to take a few pictures. Just as I...

    Is 4th Quarter 2021 a realistic delivery date for the Cybertruck?

    Yes I figured there would be brownfields on this project. I imagine they are fast-tracking this project by getting Foundation only permits while they finalize the structural, architectural and MEP designs that will be required to get the factory ready for Temporary Certificate Occupancy (TCO)...

    Cybertruck Has a Texas Home! Musk Announces Gigafactory Texas For Cybertruck Production!

    I was in Innsbruck years ago and I loved it. The place was beautiful and very, very clean ... I could live there. .... Come over to the USA, you will love it also.

    Cybertruck Has a Texas Home! Musk Announces Gigafactory Texas For Cybertruck Production!

    With those scrapers there, they could be fast tracking with a grading permit only. Even to get to this point, this thing has been going through the engineering, environmental, plan check and permitting for numerous months .... impressive, they've got some hot shot PM's working for them.

    Cybertruck Has a Texas Home! Musk Announces Gigafactory Texas For Cybertruck Production!

    I have Google Earth Pro and looked at the historical pics of the site; here's a view from 2003. There was a sand pit in the NE area of the site - let's hope there is not any Brownfield issues. I see what could be characterized as wetlands and I saw a few large settling ponds that have been...

    Need Opinion

    I can't see how that is a derivative transaction, it's a butterfly options strategy.

    Is 4th Quarter 2021 a realistic delivery date for the Cybertruck?

    I do not know the intricacies about vehicle design, tooling, supply chains, crash testing and manufacturing challenges, but I do know about development and construction. I just cannot see how Tesla can build at least one factory and deliver a truck within 18 MONTHS from now with so much to do...

    Musk confirms: HVAC in bed vault, probably bed access from second row, partial bio-defense mode

    Good point about the focus groups; however, the technical requirements for any airborne biohazard protection system are numerous with some complexity. I just don’t think it’s economically viable or practical to offer on mass produced vehicles. 🥴

    Cybertruck wouldn't be approved for sale in Europe (in current form)

    Crumple zone? Well, there are vans driving around. This should be able to be engineered to be mitigated, along with solving the European front bumper problem with possibly using different European bumpers consisting of a different material

    Musk confirms: HVAC in bed vault, probably bed access from second row, partial bio-defense mode

    biohazard filtration ? Highly unlikely . WTH ... Zombie apocolypse option packages won't make it through the marketing focus groups

    Cybertruck did NOT have windshield wipers & rear mirrors. What will it have INSTEAD?

    Would be totally cool with the laser wipers, but with the numerous trials, testing, hearings and laborious regulatory proceedings, I would be surprised to see the production truck with laser wipers .... Also replacing a broken windshield on this truck looks like a pricey undertaking
