Will they allow public viewing of the Cybertruck? I want to see it in person.

Some showrooms may have floor models... but unlikely with over 700,000 ordered.

Everyone keeps talking about t-slots and how people at the reveal saw t-slots in the bed... The t-slots is/are that one black line at the top of the bed sidewall. You can distinctly see them when you zoom into the pics that are from this angle. To me it looks like they are an integrated deck rail system like this shown below: That's a core-trax deck rail system. You can quickly anchor those every 1" along the track without tools.

I'm really hoping for a factory delete on carpet floors. Give me vinyl or just steel I can spray rhinoliner on or something.
I had the "carpet delete" option both of my trucks. It's awesome... until you spill a large soda and it doesn't fall over your all weather mats...... Don't ask how I know this......

The L-track system is well understood and not what we're discussing here.

I had a ranger with a bare floor, and the best feature ever - a drain plug. Spill a soda? Or worse, milk? Rinse it out at the car wash lmao.

The absolute worst thing to spill in a vehicle... Coming home from Sam's Club and a 1 gallon bottle of Dawn dishwashing soap fell over and the pump top broke off. No matter how many times I rinsed it out, it would still suds up when wet.

At least it probably smelled halfway decent. But yeah, I couldn't imagine the amount of water/steam cleaner needed to get that all out.

No, the worst to spill is bleach. I had a bottle slide up against the tail-light assembly in my Nova and the damn thing rolled over and got pierced by a sharp edge on the lamp housing. It made its own drain and I had to replace the tail-light assembly and part of the body.

But I would garner a guess that the people from the reveal that say they saw t-slots were looking at L-track. That was my point. Maybe I'm wrong. Either way, all things not explicitly stated as features by Tesla is conjecture.

Drop in T slots are a thing as well. They are not as beefy as full size T slots but are definitely a common T slot fastener. They are thinner, so you slip them in the slot parallel with the groove, then turn them sideways and they can't be removed. You wouldn't need the slots to extend to the end in that case.
I truly hope they do have T-slots in the bed, absolutely love the modularity that brings to the bed.

Elon did joke with both Jay Leno and Joe rogan about being "able to mount a missile launcher or something in the bed". I realize that doesn't automatically mean T slot, but I've got my fingers crossed. That was a huge selling point for me.
Ditto for me as well. I don’t have a missile launcher, but I am hoping to add a pedestal mount for my beltfed.

Love all the leg room. if you had a bench seat, the middle person would be just fine. Or maybe your SO could slide up and sit next to you while riding down the road. Old school. 😉
Yup. I tell my wife that seat is for her all the time. I'm more than happy to pretend the pandemic is still going on and we can drive out somewhere remote for a little *ahem* drive-in movie time.

This appears to be the same prototype that I viewed in person at the Peterson Museum. I can assure members that the vehicle looks MUCH better in person than all of the photographs floating on the internet. Be patient, it will be worth the wait.

I hope we get laminated Alon window glass for the front side windows, a minimum of two color choices for the interior and dashboard and at least a “donut“ spare tire for the first time on a Tesla.
