Can anyone comment on whether the front and rear air suspension are adjustable independently?
One of my favorite features in the early images of the CT at unveiling was one showing the CT with front suspension lifted up to max, rear suspension lowered to min, tailgate down and extended, the whole forming
a perfect loading/unloading ramp without any need for an accessory. The presence of a loading ramp accessory in the new pictures makes me worry that Tesla ditched that capability...

I have asked that several times, but it seems right now it does not. It would be nice to make it easier to load in motorcycles and what not. I’m sure they could probably just do it with a software update, hopefully they will.
You would still need a ramp, though, since they didn’t incorporate that into the tailgate.

The auto leveling capability we have seen when a large payload is put in the back (many videos showing sheetrocks, etc.) demonstrates the computer does have at least front and back control. That means it should be able to do so without a load. I am guessing this a software update away.

I did not see an option to do independent height adjustments front and back… could come in future update easily enough tho!

Thanks, let's hope it happens. (Since Hawaii will get its first CTs after most of the 48 states, there is plenty of time for a bunch of firmware updates ;-)
It's to bad they had to drop the extensible tailgate, but it did look a bit over the top -- easy to imagine, but really hard to build so it resists hard use and still looks slick..
