Check out them gaps... M3 production issues all over again! LOL.

Personally I am liking this pic. Seems like a great way to access the frunk.

But again, the gaps... What about boat mode? Is the frunk going to be water tight?
Seals will be under the rim of the frunk, just like it is on any truck/ threshold in a vehicle.



This is why they don’t want us to see the inside. PETA would flip out if they discovered seals in Tesla’s frunk.

Boat “Mode” is literally just better seals. Also useful for blocking noise, rain, cold air, etc etc.
Right, and I want those. but dont want boat mode lol

Speaking of seals... Back at the begining of this adventure that is CT there was a discussion here about animals getting into the body and causing havoc. I'm very curious at this point about if boat mode has also included sealing all the joints under the vehicle and in the wheel wells. Is this thing going to be basically vermin proof?

Well there isn’t likely to be any software support for it. It’s just a reference to the fact that Teslas seem to be good at dealing with flooding.

On an ICE vehicles, most of the engine, wiring, etc is exposed and there are lots of good nesting spots.

EV engines are pretty well sealed. Most of the wiring is inside channels. I think this is also part of “Boat Mode”. Just generally keeping stuff sealed up from the world.

In case you missed it. Area in the yellow box is way too close for someone to have “Guessed” that’s how it would look.

was anyone questioning if that was an actual prototype?

Look at ogre image above that's circled...those underlying structures are in plane with the door openings and sides. If you imagine them putting doors in and bolting the "sails" to those structures there's no room for storage. If the sails do bolt to that structure, the only way it would have room if those structures rotated out and up with the "sail" panel attached. It could but prob not likely.

No need for sail storage when there is the frunk that should be pretty deep. Also from the video from investor day the frunk looks like it opens up like the ford lightening possibly, which I think is way more useful imo.

I attached a pic to give u an idea, to me looks like that whole front area lifts up...not 100% though

I am 99% confident now that the CT frunk will open like the lighting.

See pages 1,3,4,7-12, 15,-21, and 23-35 of this thread.

I think there have been enough forgeries, false alarms, and digital mock-ups that skepticism was legit.
i guess there are still folks that believe the earth is flat too.

I'm skeptical that the highlighted sections are gigacastings.

First, every gigacasting I've seen is silver (bare aluminum), not black. It is not necessary to paint them, and Tesla is trying to reduce manufacturing steps.

Second, all types of complex metal parts were used in cars before the gigapress came along.

Lastly, that area does not require the same level of stiffness and support needed for the current structures replaced with castings. I'd say those pieces in the sail wings could even be plastic or composite.

Tesla Cybertruck Cybertruck Body Prototype Casting spied uncovered!! 😲 1677792593596


From the Birds Aren't Real movement:

WHAT DO YOU MEAN 'BIRDS AREN’T REAL'?
The term “Birds Aren’t Real” refers to biological “Birds” no longer existing on United States soil. After the government forcibly made the entire species extinct in the 20th century, all of these real birds were replaced with surveillance drones designed to look just like Birds. To simplify- Birds no longer exist in the U.S. as a biological lifeform, thus, Birds Aren’t Real!

I dont think the pieces in the sail pillars are Giga castings either. Was thinking much smaller casting machine. Might be a high strength composite as well. Hadn’t thought of that.
