That's not a panel gap, that is panel canyon! Would make sense if this was a beta truck, not sure if the RCs include the emergency stop button..

YES! I’ve told my wife about these. They’re called tweels (tire + wheel).

Here are two shots. One from either side. The camo does nothing to disguise these. Yikes!

those are the perreli scorpion tires
After your comment I did a search. The tread pattern does look like Perelli Scorion ATR tires.

Anyway, I really hope the CT doesn't come with Perelli Scorpians because the reviews weren't very good. Lots of complaints about poor traction and only lasting about 20,000 miles on Ford F150 and Mavericks and other pickups. I can only imagine how poorly they would last with a Cybertruck with way more power!

When you look at the comments, take note of mileage driven. Most of the good ratings were from people who hadn't put many miles on them. Here's a link to the comments page on Tire Rack: https://www.tirerack.com/survey/Sur...rpion+ATR&fromTireDetail=true&tirePageLocQty=

Y’all crying about the “panel gap”. the powergate is not latched. it’s resting on the latch
nah, i think the gap's so big that that's just what it looks like. It's a locked prototype, why would the fronk be unlatched? Not crying, just pointing out.. I'd be worried about water and dirt egress if it wasnt flush with the windshield and the side panels. Maybe this wount be an issue, but it sticks out like sore thumb to me :(

they *are* Pirelli Scorpions, you can read the sidewalls on this video, or in another thread of mine that shows it

Also *certain* they are the ELECT line

You’ll be able to choose btwn those or the Goodyear MT nobbies. Pick your poison (Goodyears may have a 15-25% range impact.)

Fact is, everyone wants an BEV (heavy) with 1,100hp, but nobody willing to pay the cost - high performance sports car owners are ~used to this sort of tire chew. They’re consumables

FWIW, also. the Rivian tire issues appear to be exacerbated by a problem of suspension camber as relates to highway speed ‘lowering’ - remains to be seen how the CT fares. In any event, same people clamoring to keep their CT in high positions will be bitching and moaning when their tires chew from poor camber.

sorry, can’t expand on why it would be. But it is.

The frunk houses the system battery

The system battery is necessary for the powered hood/latch to operate

These validation units are clearly being powered down for transport (note all the jumper boxes seen in frunks).

Ergo, if you power down the system, then close the hood, you‘d have gymnastics to get it open again.

There’s a related set of issues on other EVs with their system batteries behind powered latches. The solutions run from manual releases, to 12v jumper ports hidden elsewhere on the exterior.

So the question really isn’t why are the hoods not latched. It’swhat will the CT’s solution be for owners who find themselves with a dead 12/48v

will probably be a jumper port near the tow hooks like on my M3, but why would this unit be powered down? Its an older prototype, probably being used by a test engineer for user validation. I would think a functioning 48v system would be a part of that?

Can any of you wizards figure out what this display might be for on the “47.3?”. I’d think it might just be for testing and possibly not a production feature.

I don't see a device in there. It definitely looks like a display of some kind but I thought tat was the vent location and now I don't know. I didn't realize that there might be a ledge there. Strange!

yes ‘validation’

could think of a lot of reasons for this

Many relate to software and UI development validation

Then there just are basic safety protocols during validation, which in the corporate/engineering world can look from the outside like a lot of seemingly “unnecessary” precautions. Which can range from eg, ‘protocol dictates validation units not be left powered when unattended’ to ‘until software version X is deemed validated, we treat it like it could come alive and take over the universe if left unattended’

The frunk lid is clearly not seated in the fully latched position.

Note also the external cable release.

The fitment is a test artifact, not a "panel-gap" issue
