Let's just put it this way: trust or no trust, I wouldn't be surprised if their information is incomplete.

It's not like TFL spoke to Tesla directly to come up with the specs. Someone gave it to them, claiming that they knew what the specs were and had "insider" knowledge.

Let me ask you this: how many times were these insiders incorrect? :ROFLMAO:

Let me ask you this
Have you ever seen that bed outlet picture posted anywhere else?
What about the 3 motor inverter arrangement?

Those pictures alone prove its not an “insider”

Do you think that the Cybertruck will have less headroom than a Model Y? I mean that's what the "spec sheet" said.

So it must be true, right? :p
Ever noticed how the roof - just a wee bit - slants downward toward the bed?

Is that similar, or dissimilar, to the Model Y?

At the end of the day, that the CT could have less rear headroom is a *feeling* you have based on little more than “truck big, car small,” and a general eversion to any information that makes you feel somehow disappointed.

the irony of those emotional takes: they paint you into a corner of, when the stats are revealed as accurate, having now taken the posture of logically holding that “the CyberTruck headroom is sh*t, because it’s even lower than a Y”

not that this is an unpracticed posture here

the forum cemetery is absolutely packed full of “CyberTruck will show what a real truck is like, when it’s frunk is twice the size as the Lightning”, etc., etc., etc.

not surprisingly, the same folks act like it never happened, and with little lesson learned, move on to the next topic for shouting down others

such as “are you so dense as to think the CyberTruck could ever have less headroom than a Model Y?!”

and the circle of life continues…

What I think happened was someone took a tape measure and did the measurement. Hardly accurate but in the ballpark nevertheless.

Or, they just guestimated based on what other pickups have. We shall see how accurate these dimensions are. If they are off by 5% or more, how accurate were they to begin with?

you’re certifiably blind by your stubbornness, and also prolific

I’ve sat in the back seat.

my head touches the glass (6’2”, but I slouch)

people my size, on a bumpy road?

it’s gonna be a whole thing

Tesla will, I think, have to fix something.

Your ears need sizing.

yep

will be awesome for some, and un-awesome for others (on this one metric)

for me, back seat room was always a potentially fatal metric

it’s no longer a no-brainer for me, and instead a matter of evaluating compromises

Wait a second, where is your source??? ;)

I'm your height, and I'm long waisted (a nice way of saying my legs are short for my height). So I sit higher than most in the seat. However, I'm buying this for me, and since it is mine, I'm not sitting in the back seat! And anyone that is bothered by the back seat room in my car, doesn't have to ride with me. Like I said, I don't even have one right now. This kinda frustrates my wife, in that we always have to take her car if all three of us are going somewhere.

But if you had no brain, you'd have more headroom 🤷‍♂️
